The 2023 Camaro will be offered with two new exterior paint colors, GM Authority has learned.
The Camaro will introduce the following two exterior colors to its order books for the 2023 model year (relevant paint codes listed in parentheses):
- Sharkskin Metallic replaces (paint code GXD)
- Radiant Red Tintcoat replaces (paint code GNT)
These two colors will replace two existing exterior hues that were offered on the Chevy Camaro for the 2022 model year. Sharkskin Metallic arrives in place of Satin Steel Metallic (paint code G9K) while Radiant Red Tintcoat arrives in place of Wild Cherry Tintcoat (paint code GSK). Photos of the 2023 Chevy Camaro in these two exterior colors were not immediately available.
The Chevy Camaro is expected to receive minor changes for the 2023MY. Full details on these changes have yet to come to light, although GM Authority expects mild revisions in the way of available options and equipment.
Production of the sports coupe nameplate will continue to take place at the GM Lansing Grand River plant in Metro Detroit, where the vehicle is produced alongside the Cadillac CT4 and CT5 luxury sedans. According to GM Authority sources familiar with the Camaro program, the 2023 Chevy Camaro is scheduled to begin rolling off the production line at the Lansing facility on June 6th, 2022.
The 2022 Chevy Camaro is offered with four gasoline engine options: the turbocharged 2.0L LTG four-cylinder, naturally aspirated 3.6L LGX V6, naturally aspirated 6.2L LT1 V8 and, for the high-performance ZL1 model only, the supercharged 6.2L LT4 V8.
Some rumors have suggested the vehicle will receive the 6.2L LT2 V8 from the C8 Corvette Stingray for the 2023 model year, which would arrive in place of the LT1 V8, but we have our doubts, as this would require GM to make some significant engineering investments in the nameplate. That seems unlikely, in our opinion, as the Camaro is set to be discontinued in the coming years amid GM’s shift to a more EV-focused product portfolio. That said, the Camaro’s departure could make way for a new high-performance Chevy EV, which may or may not leverage the Camaro branding.
