The sixth-generation Chevrolet Camaro will be discontinued in 2024. This comes after its nine-year-long stint in the market.
The US-spec Chevrolet Camaro ZL1
The axing of the Camaro was announced by the bowtie brand, which further stated that the last Camaro unit will roll off from its Lansing Grand River Assembly Plant in Michigan in January 2024.
With that said Chevrolet has yet to announce an immediate successor for the popular muscle car. According to Global Chevrolet President Scott Bell, however, “this is not the end of Camaro’s story.”
The American carmaker likewise announced the upcoming release of the Collector’s Edition Packages for the 2024 model year Camaro SS, RS, and a limited number of ZL1 trims. The brand considers this as a final hurrah of sorts for the 6th-generation Camaro. Not much is known about these yet, but it was indicated that they would be made available for the North American market in 2024.
