2016 Chevy El Camino: History and Engine with Fuel Economy
The El Camino has a rich history to back up its cult status in the market. The first model was produced during 1959 to counter its then formidable foe- Ford Ranchero, but it did not receive the kind of welcome that the company had hoped for, thus leading to its early demise within just two years. The first re-entry happened in 1987, and it received more appreciation than what it got before.
There were significant differences between the first and generation engines. Second- generation engine had power output of 120 hp and other improvements to its exterior and interior design.
The concept of 2016 Chevy El Camino came with two engine types, starting with a 6.0 litre V8 engine for its base variant. This engine has the power to produce a maximum of 360 hp while 300 hp would be produced by the 3.2 litre V6 unit. There are yet no stats available regarding its fuel consumption, but we expect the company to reveal them soon.
