Chevrolet has priced up its 2016 Camaro, with the all-important sixth generation car kicking off at $26,695 when it lands in dealerships at the end of the year. Announced as Chevy’s retort to the latest Ford Mustang back in May, the Camaro will be offered as a coupe or convertible, and though there’ll be a relatively small number of models and trims, the company is also throwing a fair amount of options into the mix for personalization.

Taking into account Chevrolet’s $995 destination charges – though not tax, title, license, and other fees – the 2016 car carries a $1,995 premium over its 2015 predecessor.

In contrast, the 2016 Ford Mustang starts out at $24,700 including destination.

Still, you get more as standard this time around. Even the entry-level car, the 2016 Camaro LT, will have CarPlay, OnStar 4G, driver-mode selection of Snow/Ice, Tour, and Sport modes, remote start for the automatic, keyless entry, a rear vision camera, automatic climate control, LED daytime running lamps, power seats, and an electronic parking brake among other things.

The Camaro SS will kick off at $37,295, meanwhile, with different Brembo brakes, run-flat tires, and new cooling systems for the diff, transmission, and engine oil. The manual models get active rev matching and a limited slip differential, too.

Stepping up to the 2SS throws in heated and ventilated leather seats, wireless phone charging, Chevy’s eye-catching color changing LED lighting in the cabin, a heated wheel and head up display, Bose audio system, and more.

Magnetic Ride Control, a sunroof, eight-speed auto, and navigation are a few of the remaining options on the top-tier car.
