Chevy Sends The Camaro To The Chopping Block For 2024

Chevrolet has announced in a press release that the sixth-generation Camaro will meet its demise at the beginning of next year, with 2024 being its final model year. The last examples are slated to roll off the line in January at GM's Lansing Grand River plant.

But there is still some good news for diehard Camaro fans, as the muscle car's name will be making a reappearance sometime in the future. "While we are not announcing an immediate successor today, rest assured, this is not the end of Camaro's story," the automaker said. The question of whether it will be electric remains unanswered, but we're hoping that Chevrolet takes the same gas-powered path as Ford did with its seventh-gen Mustang. However, there have also been rumors supporting the idea of an all-electric, Ultium-based successor to the existing model, so there's a chance that Chevy might be killing off the current Camaro in anticipation of a complete overhaul for the nameplate.

In the meantime, Chevy will send off its historic nameplate–temporarily, that is–with a Collector's Edition package based on the 2024 model year RS and SS variants. The brand adds that the high-performance ZL1 will get the Collector's Edition treatment as well, but in very limited numbers. Alongside a couple of shadowy teasers, Chevy has told us that the package will take inpiration from the Camaro's past, especially the original model from the 1960s. The automaker also highlights the fact that the first-generation Camaro was codenamed 'Panther,' which could potentially be a major hint.

While it's not truly the end of the road for the Camaro, the current generation's demise signals the end of an era, especially if the model's short hiatus is followed by something more revolutionary. “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 Chevrolet vice president Scott Bell. "This is not the final chapter."

Will you miss the sixth-gen Camaro, or are you more excited for its future?
