To note, the Camaro on sale currently is the fifth-generation model based on GM’s Zeta platform. The vehicle will be phased out in November and be replaced by the all-new, 2016 Camaro that will soon start full-scale production at GM’s Lansing Grand River assembly plant in Michigan. As such, there is likely a significant amount of pent-up demand for the all-new model, which is lighter and more capable, wears all-new sheetmetal and has an all-new cabin with more advanced technology.
As Camaro slid 23 percent, overall sales of Chevrolet vehicles in the U.S. — which include those of the Camaro — dropped 1.52 percent to 183,098 units in August. See more GM August 2015 sales results.
