Although the 2022 Chevy Camaro went into production on August 17th at the GM Lansing Grand River plant, certain features will have limited availability at the start of production, while others will not be available whatsoever.
- ZL1 and ZL1 with A1Z (ZL1 1LE Extreme Track Performance Package)
- Redline Edition (WBL)
- Rapid Blue color (GMO)
Not available at start of production:
- Shock & Steele Edition (B2E)
- LT1 engine with six-speed manual transmission (MN6) but without dual model exhaust (NPP)
These items will become fully available later on in the 2022 model year.
Production at the GM Lansing Grand River facility has been an on-again, off-again affair, with the ongoing global microchip shortage impacting production of the Chevy Camaro, as well as the Cadillac CT4 and Cadillac CT5 luxury sedans also built at the facility.

Due to missed production, Chevy Camaro inventory has fallen, which has naturally led to a drop in Chevy Camaro sales. As GM Authority reported last month, Camaro sales dwindled to 9 percent segment share during the second quarter of the 2021 calendar year.
Chevy Camaro sales for the first six months of 2021 amounted to 9,881 units, a 29 percent decrease compared to the 2020 calendar year when 13,860 units were delivered. That performance gives the Chevy muscle car a 14 percent segment share during Q2 2021, down from the 20 percent recorded in the year-ago quarter.
Production of the 2022 Chevy Camaro was originally set to begin Monday, June 14th, but that date was later pushed back due to the semiconductor shortage.
The 2022 Chevy Camaro represents the seventh model year of the sixth-generation Camaro.
The vehicle arrives with just a few changes and updates compared to the previous 2021 model year, including the addition of two new exterior colors, as well as the deletion of two exterior color options, namely Crush, an orange hue tagged with paint code G16, and Shock, a green-yellow hue tagged with paint code GKO. The new paint options will include Rapid Blue, as previewed at the NASCAR Beef It’s What’s For Dinner 300 race at Daytona last February. The other new color is Vivid Orange Metallic.
