Gen 6 Camaro bows out with collector’s edition
After nine model years in the market, with hundreds of thousands sold, the sixth generation Chevrolet Camaro will retire at the conclusion of model year 2024, with the final Camaros to roll off the assembly line at the Lansing Grand River Assembly Plant in Michigan in January 2024.
The Gen 6 cars are available in coupe and soft-top convertible variants. Magnetic Ride Control became available on the Camaro SS in the sixth generation and track-focused 1LE packages proliferated through all levels of the line-up for the first time. The ultimate street-legal track Camaro, the 650 horsepower ZL1 1LE, produced the fastest time for any Camaro around GM’s Milford Road Course at the company’s Milford Proving Ground in Michigan.
“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,” said vice president, Global Chevrolet, Scott Bell. “While we are not announcing an immediate successor today, rest assured, this is not the end of Camaro’s story.”
Chevrolet will celebrate the storied nameplate with the addition of the Collector’s Edition package on the 2024 Camaro RS and SS, and on a limited number of ZL1 equipped vehicles available in North America. The Collector’s Edition pays homage to Camaro, resurfacing ties that date back to the development of the first-generation Camaro in the 1960s, most notably the program’s initial code name: Panther.
More information on the 2024 Camaro line and Collector’s Edition package will be available closer to the start of orders in the northern summer.
Chevrolet campaigns the sixth generation Camaro in a variety of series, including NASCAR, IMSA, SRO, NHRA and the Supercars Championship. Chevrolet said Camaro will continue to compete on track, working with motorsports sanctioning bodies to ensure the brand’s presence in racing moving forward.
“Chevrolet’s products and our relationship with our customers benefit from motorsports,” said Chevrolet US vice president, Performance and Motorsports, Jim Campbell. “Our plan is to continue to compete and win at the highest levels of auto racing.”
