The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro is clearly the more sport-oriented design of the two models. It features muscular curves and a wide stance on the road. Inside the cabin, there’s standard seating for four passengers.

The 2016 Chevrolet SS, on the other hand, is built in the tradition of full-size family sedans. It might differs from that moniker when it comes to what’s under the hood, but it does fulfill the practical needs and desires of families more fully, with standard seating for up to five people and more premium features inside the cabin.

When it comes to pricing, these two Chevrolet sports cars are quite distinct. The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro has a wide price range, making it accessible to more mainstream shoppers while still offering more commanding performance and features on the high end. The Camaro starts at an MSRP from just $25,700 and goes up to $42,795 for a fully loaded model.

On the other side of the aisle is the 2016 Chevrolet SS. This model only comes in a single, luxurious, and high-performance trim level. As such, it’s not surprising that it has a higher price point with an MSRP from $46,575.

Choosing the Best Vehicle for You

For shoppers wanting a vehicle that comes at a more affordable starting price, the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro is the better option in the segment. At this more affordable end, it also delivers more fuel-efficient savings. On the other end of the spectrum, the Chevrolet Camaro also maximizes performance thanks to its tuned V8 engine, and it sports unmistakable muscle car lines and a sturdy stance on the road, as well.

The 2016 Chevrolet SS might be more expensive, but you get a lot with it. As a sedan, this model can thrill behind the wheel but still provides a degree of convenience when it comes to filling up the cabin and trunk with passengers and cargo. Additionally, the Chevrolet SS delivers an unmistakable degree of luxury that is rare for a sports car at this price point.
