Chevrolet Camaro: A Legacy Continues

After nine successful years in the automotive market, the sixth generation Chevrolet Camaro is set to retire at the end of the 2024 model year. This announcement marks the end of an era for one of Chevrolet’s most beloved nameplates. The final batch of sixth generation Camaros will roll off the assembly line at the Lansing Grand River Assembly Plant in Michigan in January 2024.

A Legacy of Performance and Style

The sixth generation Camaro has captivated car enthusiasts with its unparalleled athleticism and composure. This latest iteration of the Camaro introduced several notable features, including the availability of Magnetic Ride Control on the Camaro SS and the introduction of track-focused 1LE packages across the lineup. The pinnacle of the sixth generation Camaro lineup, the ZL1 1LE, boasted an impressive 650 horsepower and set a record for the fastest lap time by any Camaro at GM’s Milford Road Course in Michigan.

Acknowledging the Camaro’s Success

Chevrolet acknowledges the tremendous support from Camaro customers, assembly line employees, and race fans. Scott Bell, Vice President of Global Chevrolet, expressed his gratitude, stating, “As we prepare to say goodbye to the current generation Camaro, it is difficult to overstate our gratitude to every Camaro customer, Camaro assembly line employee, and race fan. While we are not announcing an immediate successor today, rest assured, this is not the end of Camaro’s story.”

To celebrate the legacy of the Camaro, Chevrolet will introduce the Collector’s Edition package on the 2024 Camaro RS and SS models. A limited number of ZL1 equipped vehicles will also receive this special edition treatment. The Collector’s Edition pays homage to the Camaro’s rich history, including its iconic development code name: Panther. More details about the 2024 Camaro lineup and the Collector’s Edition package will be revealed closer to the start of orders in the summer.
