The upcoming 2022 Chevy Camaro will slot in as the seventh model year of the latest sixth generation, introducing a few minor changes and updates over the current 2021 model year. Among those changes is the deletion of two exterior paint options.
When it arrives, the 2022 Chevy Camaro will no longer offer Crush and Shock as exterior paint options. The Crush exterior color is an orange hue tagged with paint code G16, while Shock is a green-yellow hue tagged with paint code GKO. The 2021 Chevrolet Camaro offered Crush and Shock as optional paint colors for an additional $395, with both hues previously available on all trim levels, as well as both the Coupe and Convertible body style.
Unfortunately, customers interested in grabbing a new 2021 Chevy Camaro in Crush paint no longer have that option, as the color has been built out for the model year, as GM Authority covered previously. To note, the Crush paint option as also offered with 2020 and 2019 model year Camaros, plus the 2018 Chevy Camaro 50th Anniversary Edition.
Although the discontinuation of the Crush and Shock paint options deletes two vibrant paint options from the lineup, the 2022 Chevy Camaro will still have a swath of eye-catching paint colors to choose from. One of the most notable additions will be Rapid Blue, a light shade of cerulean previewed by the pace car that led the field at the NASCAR Beef It’s What’s For Dinner 300 race at Daytona in February. As eagle-eyed readers no doubt already know, Rapid Blue is the same hue first offered by the mid-engine Chevrolet Corvette C8.
Like the current model, the 2022 Chevy Camaro is expected to offer a total of four engine options, including the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LTG, the naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LGX, the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 LT1, and the supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4.
