Will a common drivetrain element invalidate a 50-year feud?

There aren’t too many automotive rivalries for consumers to get excited about anymore. Sure, there’s the annual Honda Accord/Nissan Altima/Toyota Camry sales race—but I’m not sure present-day buyers really care all that much.

2016 Chevrolet Camaro SS

New CamaroThe 2016 Chevrolet Camaro is smaller, lighter, plusher, and more technologically advanced than its predecessor. At first blush, it’s a bit livelier to drive, too.

Mounted on a new rear-wheel-drive platform, the corporate Alpha setup that underpins the Cadillac ATS and CTS, the 6th-generation Camaro makes abundant use of pound-paring aluminum components in its body and suspension. All body panels are new even as the overall styling theme maintains a kinship to the 2010-15 5th-generation car. The roster of engines sports 3 new choices—including the first 4-cylinder found in a Camaro since 1986—and 8-speed automatic transmissions replace the 6-speed autoboxes used previously.
