In a move that was expected by Camaro, Chevy, and GM enthusiasts the world over, General Motors has confirmed that it will cease manufacturing the fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro at its Oshawa Assembly facility in Ontario, Canada on November 20th, 2015. The news comes just as the Bowtie readies to reveal the all-new sixth-generation 2016 Camaro, while unofficially confirming that the all-new 2016 Camaro will go into production before November.
Production of the sixth-generation Camaro will take place at GM’s Lansing Grand River assembly plant in Michigan alongside other Alpha-platformed vehicles — the Cadillac ATS and CTS. Meanwhile, the fifth-gen Camaro has been assembled on the Flex line at Oshawa for its entire lifecycle. When it ends its run, the plant as a whole (which also includes the Consolidated line) will move from four shifts down to three.
The all-new, 2016 Chevy Camaro will be unveiled on Saturday, May 16th, 2015 at a special event at Belle Isle in Detroit. GM Authority will be in attendance to provide live coverage of the reveal.
