The Chevy Camaro will continue to be offered with the Shock and Steel Edition package for the 2023 model year and will also be available to order with the Sharkskin Metallic exterior paint option, GM Authority has learned.
For those readers who may be unaware, the Shock and Steel package (RPO code B2E) brings a variety of aesthetic upgrades to the Chevy Camaro’s exterior and interior. The package is tagged with RPO code B2E and is offered on 2LT, 3LT, and 2SS trim levels, as well as both the Coupe and the Convertible body styles. For the 2023 model year, the Shock and Steel package will include the following equipment:

As GM Authority reported previously, the 2023 Camaro will be offered with two new exterior paint colors. One of these will in fact be Sharkskin Metallic, which arrives in place of Satin Steel Metallic (paint code G9K) while the other will be Radiant Red Tintcoat, replacing Wild Cherry Tintcoat (paint code GSK). The Chevy Camaro is expected to receive some other minor changes for the 2023MY, too, however full details on these changes have yet to come to light. GM Authority expects mild revisions in the way of available options and equipment.
As a reminder, the current, 2022 model year Chevy Camaro represents the seventh model year of the sixth-generation sports car. It’s offered with four available engines, including the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LTG gasoline engine, the naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LGX gasoline engine, the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 LT1 gasoline engine, and the supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4 gasoline engine for the range-topping ZL1 performance trim.
