The current sixth-generation Chevy Camaro is slated to sunset in 2023 as a 2024 model-year vehicle. To mark its departure, the 2024 Chevy Camaro will be offered with a special-edition “farewell” package.
The yet-unnamed special-edition “farewell” package for the 2024 Chevy Camaro might end up being called Heritage Edition, and will be offered across various trim levels, likely including LT, LT1, SS, and ZL1. The package will also likely be restricted to exterior and interior bits, without any powertrain or suspension changes over the standard model, given development resources have been pulled from the Chevy Camaro for about two years now.
As such, the rumored upgrade to the Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing’s version of the supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4 gasoline engine, rated at 668 horsepower and 659 pound-feet of torque, is highly unlikely. To note, Chevy Camaro ZL1 models are equipped with the supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4 gasoline engine, but output is rated at 650 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque. What’s more, the rumor that the Chevy Camaro could adopt Magnetic Ride Control 4.0 suspension is also highly unlikely.
The lack of suspension and powertrain upgrades for the final few model years of the sixth-generation Chevy Camaro can be chalked up to emissions and/or internal validation costs that simply can’t be justified for the nameplate at this point in time.
The discontinuation timeframe for the sixth-generation Chevy Camaro was previously somewhat uncertain, as GM Authority covered previously. Development of the seventh-generation model has been terminated, making the sixth-gen model the “final” generation for the nameplate, at least for now. Moving forward, it has now been determined that the sixth-generation Camaro will be discontinued for the 2024 model year. The sixth-generation was originally introduced for the 2016 calendar year.
What happens to the legendary nameplate after that timeframe remains uncertain. One possibility is that the Chevy Camaro will be revived as a new performance EV sedan, coinciding with General Motors’ move towards an all-electric future.
