The upcoming 2022 Chevy Camaro is set to arrive as the seventh model year of the latest sixth generation, introducing a few minor changes and updates over the current 2021 Chevy Camaro. Now, however, GM Authority has learned that production of the 2022 Chevy Camaro has been delayed.
Originally, production of the 2022 Chevy Camaro was set to begin Monday, June 14th, 2021, as GM Authority covered previously. Now, however, production of the 2022 Camaro is set to commence on September 20th, 2021, roughly three months later than originally planned.
The new production dates include both the 2022 Chevy Camaro Coupe and 2022 Chevy Camaro Convertible. Just like the current 2021 model year, the 2022 Camaro will be produced at the General Motors Lansing Grand River facility in Lansing, Michigan. Order books for the 2022 model year opened April 8th, 2021.
When it arrives, the 2022 Chevy Camaro will introduce only a selection of small changes and updates compared to the current 2021 model year. The changes include small alterations to the equipment offered within each trim level, as well as a few new color options.
No major changes are expected for the powertrain lineup, with four engine options on offer. These include the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LTG, which produces 275 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque, the naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LGX, which produces 335 horsepower and 284 pound-feet of torque, the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 LT1, which produces 455 horsepower and 455 pound-feet of torque, and at the top of the heap, the supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4, which produces 650 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque.
Under the skin, the 2022 Chevy Camaro will continue to ride on the GM Alpha platform.
