The latest sixth-generation Chevrolet Camaro was introduced for the 2016 model year, with a refresh arriving for the 2019 model year, and a “refresh of a refresh” arriving for the following 2020 model year. Now, with the arrival of the 2021 Chevy Camaro, the iconic muscle car nameplate gets a few minor changes and updates, including two new exhaust tips as official accessories.
The new exhaust tips are offered as LPO-level items, which means they are produced by General Motors, and can be either ordered with the vehicle and installed by the dealer, or purchased post-sale as accessories.
The new tips include either a Black Chrome finish (RPO code VTA) with engraved Bow Tie emblems, or a Carbon Fiber finish (RPO code 5VF) with cutouts showing BowTie emblems on the top of the metal tip underneath the carbon. Installation is a simple bolt-on affair. The automaker even points out that the Black Chrome tips for the 2021 Chevy Camaro reduce exhaust tip temperatures by up to 100 degrees F.
The new exhaust tips are available for both the 2021 Chevy Camaro Coupe and Convertible, including every trim level with the exception of LT1 and ZL1.
