GM will ship certain 2023 Chevy Camaro units to dealerships without under hood insulators due to a materials shortage, GM Authority has learned.
All Chevy Camaro models that are produced without hood insulation will be indicated as such on the window sticker by the RPO code R8V. It’s currently unclear if buyers will receive a credit in exchange for the insulation, however this part can be retrofitted by the dealership at a later date. It’s unclear when the retrofitting process will begin. This change affects all 2022 Chevy Camaro and Camaro Convertible trim levels, including the range-topping ZL1.
The 2023 model-year Camaro introduces small changes and updates to the nameplate, including a revised list of exterior paint options and two new 20-inch wheel options. The nameplate also deletes the optional Sport Pedals Kit and gets rid of the optional 1LE Spec Visible Carbon Fiber Spoiler for the ZL1 trim.
Pricing for the 2023 Camaro will start at $27,195 (including DFC) for the base 1LS trim level, up $800 as compared to the 2022 model year. As a reminder, the sports coupe’s engine lineup is comprised of four powertrain options, including the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LTG gasoline engine, naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LGX gasoline engine, naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 LT1 gasoline engine, and supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4 gasoline engine. It rides on the GM Alpha platform.
Looking ahead, GM is set to phase out the Chevy Camaro from its lineup as it transitions to a more EV-focused portfolio. As a result, the nameplate will be offered in a special-edition “farewell” package for the 2024 model year that will include a select number of aesthetic enhancements for the exterior and interior.
