The sixth generation Chevrolet Camaro will roll off the assembly line in January 2024. See below for more information about this model!
THE Chevrolet announced today that the sixth-generation Camaro will be retired after the 2024 model year.
This means that the final version of the current car will roll off the factory line in January 2024. While GM has not released any details about the car's successor, it has confirmed that this is not the end of the story.
To say goodbye to the model's sixth generation, Chevrolet said it will offer a Collector's Edition package in honor of the car's legacy.
The Camaro was originally developed under the codename “Panther” when it was first introduced in 1966.
A teaser image of the new model featured in Chevrolet's farewell video shows that the Collector's Edition nameplate will feature an image of a prowling panther located in the R.
The image also shows a large rear wing and a ZL1 on the hood, suggesting the Collector's Edition will be a powerful performer. This shouldn't come as a surprise, as in its nine years of production, the muscle car has impressed on the track.
Starting with the 2019 Camaro Turbo 1LE, the COPO Camaro drag racer, Chevrolet has always aimed to provide its customers with top-notch performance, regardless of what's under the hood. The 2018 Camaro ZL1 1LE in particular used its 650 hp (485 kW/659 hp) supercharged V8 to set a record as the fastest ever at the Nürburgring, clocking a time of 7:16.04.
The sixth-generation Camaro also competed in several racing series, including NASCAR, IMSA, SRO, NHRA and the Australian Supercars Championship.
Chevrolet plans to continue competing in these series and is working with sanctioning bodies to ensure it can continue competing.
GM says “this is not the final chapter for the [Camaro] nameplate,” but Scott Bell, Chevrolet global vice president, says the brand is not yet ready to announce an immediate successor.
Although the main competitor is mustang, retain its combustion engines for the next-generation model that launched last year, previous reports suggest that Chevrolet is planning a more revolutionary approach.
Rumor has it that the automaker plans to turn the Camaro into an electric vehicle, using its Ultium platform.
