After an exceptional nine-year run and hundreds of thousands of units sold, the time has come for the renowned sixth generation Chevrolet Camaro to make its final bow following the 2024 model year. The concluding batch of the sixth generation Camaros will exit the Lansing Grand River Assembly Plant in Michigan in January 2024, marking a significant milestone for this esteemed American muscle car.
The most recent Camaro generation, offered as both coupes and soft-top convertibles, has garnered praise for its unparalleled agility and stability. This generation saw the Camaro SS gain Magnetic Ride Control, while track-focused 1LE packages expanded across the entire range. The pinnacle of street-legal track Camaros, the 650 horsepower ZL1 1LE, achieved a record time for a Camaro on GM’s Milford Road Course at the company’s Milford Proving Ground in Michigan.
The Camaro’s performance history showcases Chevrolet’s capacity to excel in the most challenging conditions, securing numerous awards and victories on tracks across the globe. Scott Bell, vice president of Global Chevrolet, expressed his appreciation for everyone involved in the Camaro’s success. Though no immediate successor is being revealed, Bell confirmed that the Camaro’s legacy will continue.
In honor of the Camaro’s impact, Chevrolet will release a Collector’s Edition package for the 2024 Camaro RS and SS models, along with a limited number of ZL1 trims available in North America. This exclusive edition celebrates the Camaro’s rich heritage, which dates back to the 1960s and the birth of the first-generation Camaro, originally known as the Panther. Further details regarding the 2024 Camaro lineup and the Collector’s Edition package will be unveiled as the ordering window approaches this summer.
Performance remains an integral part of Chevrolet’s ethos, and the company’s dedication to adrenaline-fueled vehicles is unwavering. From the Corvette to the Colorado, Silverado ZR2, Tahoe RST, and the forthcoming Blazer EV SS1, Chevrolet maintains an impressive lineup of high-performance models that cater to street, track, and off-road aficionados.
Regarding motorsports, the sixth generation Camaro has participated in a diverse range of racing series, such as NASCAR, IMSA, SRO, NHRA, and the Supercars Championship. Chevrolet will keep its presence on the track, partnering with motorsports governing bodies to ensure a strong racing future. Jim Campbell, Chevrolet U.S. vice president of Performance and Motorsports, emphasized that the brand’s products and customer relationships continue to thrive due to Chevrolet’s involvement in motorsports, and they plan to keep competing and triumphing at the highest echelons of auto racing.
