Funny enough, the most common question we get asked about the Chevrolet Camaro has nothing to do with 0-to-60 mph times or how long it can do a burnout. Rather, we get asked all the time about the Camaro RS package, specifically what it is and what it includes. As such, we decided to dive into a full explainer on exactly that topic.
To note, this piece isn’t for those Camaro enthusiasts who have every single detail of the Camaro RS package committed to memory. Rather, it’s geared more towards casual fans who want to know what the package is all about.
With that covered, let’s begin with the name. The Camaro RS package harkens back to the first-generation Camaro, which was also offered with an optional RS package. The letters stand for “Rally Sport,” and like the original, the modern Camaro RS package offers unique styling upgrades for the sixth-gen sports car, including:
- Dark tint LED tail lamps
- RS-specific grilles
- Black front and rear Bow Tie emblems
- Decklid-mounted lip spoiler
- 20-inch five-split spoke, premium Gray-painted, machine-face, aluminum wheels
The Camaro RS package is available on 1LT, 2LT, 3LT, and LT1 trim levels. However, it is not available on the LS Coupe. Pricing is set at $1,950 for both Coupe and Convertible models.
- Also includes 20-inch five-split spoke, premium Gray-painted, machine-face, aluminum wheels (RQ9). Wheels are upgradeable to RTJ, RTH, WR1, 5K9, or upgraded to package specific wheels.
The five wheel options listed above can be seen here:
To note, the Chevrolet Camaro SS gets some of the content offered with the Camaro RS package as standard, including standard dark tint LED tail lamps and standard black Bow Tie emblems. However, the SS also gets its own grille treatment and front end styling, as well as its own spoiler (called stanchion) and different wheels.
While the Camaro RS package doesn’t actually enhance vehicle performance, it definitely upgrades the styling with a more sporty aesthetic.
