In 2019, speculations regarding the Camaro model being dropped from the Chevrolet lineup first surfaced. Chevrolet apparently changed its mind and focused the entire program on the remaining manufacturing years of the sixth generation, even though a seventh-generation model was initially planned. The Camaro appears to be nearing the end of its useful life right now, and the rumors from a few years ago seem to have come to pass. In fact, Chevy "unofficially" announced the discontinuation of this renowned sports car several years ago.
Now, we can formally announce that the Chevrolet Camaro will leave the factory in 2019. The final batch of Camaros will be produced in the company's Lansing, Grand River, Michigan plant in January 2024, marking the end of the sixth-generation Camaro's nine-year run on the market.
But, the Chevy Camaro won't be fully phased away; a replacement will be available. While getting ready to bid the Camaro farewell, Chevrolet Global Vice President Scott Bell stated there is still more to the story. However, there are currently no plans for a direct Camaro replacement.
Bell stated, "We want to thank every Camaro consumer, Camaro manufacturing line worker, and Camaro enthusiast as we get ready to bid farewell to the current generation Camaro. Although we won't be announcing a replacement right away today, rest assured The narrative of Camaro is not over yet.
Chevy will honor the Camaro's illustrious history by adding a collector's edition to create a memorable send-off for the car before its ultimate demise. This version will be offered for the 2024 Camaro RS and SS as well as a small selection of ZL1 cars sold in North America.
Chevrolet has stated that the Collector's Edition will pay homage to the creation of the first-generation Camaro in the 1960s, notably the program's initial code name, "Panther," even though specifics have not yet been revealed.
After launch, collector's edition buyers will be happy to learn that this model will be extremely unique. According to sneak peek photos, the ZL1 Collection Edition will have a sizable rear wing, a sizable hood scoop, and a distinctive Camaro logo with a panther in the center of the R.
More information on the Camaro Collector's Edition package will be released closer to the end of the year when orders will be taken. Given that the Camaro will be phased out soon, anyone interested in purchasing one should contact their local dealer.
