2022 Chevy Camaro Gets New Rapid Blue Color: First Look19
The 2022 Chevy Camaro adds two new exterior colors to its palette: Vivid Orange Metallic and Rapid Blue. Here’s our first look at the new blue hue.
Assigned color code GMO and touch-up paint code WA-632D, Rapid Blue is one of two blue hues available for the 2022 Chevy, with the other being Riverside Blue Metallic. The new Rapid Blue color is also one of three extra-charge colors available for the Camaro, along with Wild Cherry Tintcoat and the also-new Vivid Orange Metallic.
Notably, the Camaro offers nine exterior color options in total:
- Red Hot
- Satin Steel Metallic
- Summit White
- Vivid Orange Metallic
- Shadow Gray Metallic
- Riverside Blue Metallic
- Rapid Blue
- Wild Cherry Tintcoat
As mentioned, the new Rapid Blue color is not included in the base price of the 2022 Camaro, and carries an extra charge of $395. Additionally, the new blue color is available on all trim levels and with every interior color combination except for Adrenaline Red.
The color is available on both the Camaro Coupe as well as on Camaro Convertible. It’s worth noting that Blue and Kalahari convertible tops were deleted for the 2022 model year, making Black the only available convertible top color.

2022 Camaro Interior Color Combinations:

Production of the Chevy Camaro at the GM Lansing Grand River facility in Michigan was be down for two weeks in September, including the weeks of September 13th and September 20th. The downtime is a result of the ongoing global microchip shortage. Before the stoppage, 2022 Camaro production began mid-August.
Noteworthy changes to the 2022 Chevy Camaro over the 2021 model include the deletion of the LT 1LE Track Performance Package, expanded availability of the Wild Cherry Design Package – now simply referred to as the Design Package – as it is now available with the two new color options, Vivid Orange and Rapid Blue. Additionally, a new Design Package 3 is joining the lineup while Design Package 2 becomes available on 1LT, LT1, and 1SS models.

I dig the color!
Just as I predicted!
I personally like the Camaro, but I’m afraid this could be the last year of it. 2016 to 2022 and now change in HP? GM just doesn’t care about the Camaro. The SS should have at least 500hp by now.
I am ordering a 2022 Camaro as my new daily driver.
But in my normal Black or maybe Riverside Blue but definitely not Rapid Blue.
Awful on the C8, and of course no better on the Camaro.
Agreed. Makes both of them look like toy cars. The only tasteful colors for a sports car are black, red, white, and some shades of grey. Same for the interior…with the proper color match to the exterior color.
No better way to ruin a sports cars styling than a gaudy color combo.
Yep, especially the C8, that car gets ugly real quick and any combo goes thru the order process. I have a C8 and a 6th gen Camaro, so not a 6th gen hater or a C8 hater.
So much for the power of choice
Shut your mouth!!!
My favorite is GREEN. What are my choices??? – NONE!
When are they going to ditch those ugly bulging tail lights? They look like unsightly blood blisters in red, weirdly obtrusive in silver, and conspicuously fugly in black. The previous tail lights were much cleaner & classsier.
Production is also down the week of the 27th, and will not resume until the 4th of October.
Yep they may start Oct. 4 but they say the engine are a problem getting them.. Next it will be the tires.. LOL
On the bright side I did order my 2022 Rapid Blue Convertible in April and still waiting on a build date order.
But with winter coming it’s one less thing I have to find someplace to park for the winter…
Which trim did you get? Also are you on the Camaro forum, where you can get the latest status updates and info on your order? I have a 22 LT1 M6 in Riverside Blue that was scheduled to be built the week of 9/13, right when they shut down. I ordered it towards the end of July.
Most of the info it’s off my dealers computer. I’ve worked with him for a lot of years, and bought lots of cars and trucks. I did get the 2LT package with white interior. After having black seats on motorcycles and it our old C4 vette, we wanted cool seat to sit down on.
I ordered cherry red tint convertible in February with manual transmission and still no idea when it will be made.
In which trim? Did you get NPP?
It’s a damn shame that people that make big money at a company things a over priced electric Hummer or changing a blue Camaro is going to save the company’s down fall.. I worked for two GM dealers one 9 the other 41 in a small town and seen some damn ass ideas threw the years that common sense tell you it’s wrong .
