The naturally-aspirated 3.6L V6 LGX engine slots above the turbocharged 2.0L LTG I4 in the Camaro LS and LT models. Meanwhile, the LT1 and SS models are powered by the atmospheric 6.2L LT1 V8 while the ZL1 and ZL1 1LE models are powered by supercharged 6.2L LT4 V8.
As GM Authority exclusively reported last month, other features and equipment will also have limited availability on the 2022 Camaro since the new model year went into production on August 17th at the GM Lansing Grand River plant. This includes the 2022 Camaro ZL1 and ZL1 with the 1LE Extreme Track Performance Package along with the Redline Edition (WBL) and Rapid Blue color (GMO). Unavailable at all since startup have been the Shock & Steele Edition (B2E) and LT1 engine with 6-speed manual transmission (MN6) but without dual model exhaust (NPP).
These items will become fully available later on in the 2022 model year, though exactly when is currently unclear.
The 2022 Chevy Camaro sees several updates and changes over the 2021 model, including the discontinuation of the 1LE Track Performance Package for LT models. The 1LE package is still available for the Camaro SS (as the SS 1LE Track Performance Package) and for the ZL1 (as the ZL1 1LE Extreme Track Performance Package). Both of those packages, however, feature different content and equipment compared to the LT 1LE Track Performance Package.
Production at the GM Lansing Grand River plant has been an on-again, off-again affair, with the ongoing global microchip shortage impacting production of not only the Chevy Camaro, but also the Cadillac CT4 and Cadillac CT5 luxury sedans that are also built at the facility.

Due to missed production, Chevy Camaro inventory has fallen substantially, which has naturally resulted to a drop in deliveries. Chevy Camaro sales fell 29 percent to 9,881 units during the first six months of 2021, well behind its primary rivals – the Ford Mustang and Dodge Challenger, both of which recorded over 30k deliveries during the same timeframe. The circumstance gives the Camaro a 14 percent segment share versus 42 percent for the Challenger and 44 percent for the Mustang.
The latest news about Camaro production involves assembly being idled until October 4th.
