Here’s When The Last 2023 Chevy Camaro Will Be Built: Exclusive62
The fate of the Chevy Camaro nameplate remains somewhat uncertain, with a few theories on the table with regard to where it may evolve. For now, however, production of the current sixth-gen Chevy Camaro is set to wind down soon, and now, GM Authority has exclusively learned when the last 2023 Chevy Camaro will be built.
According to sources familiar with the matter, production of the 2023 Chevy Camaro will end on August 3rd of the 2023 calendar year. GM will stop taking orders for the 2023 Chevy Camaro in June of the 2023 calendar year. As a reminder, the Chevy Camaro is produced at the GM Lansing Grand River plant in Michigan.
Looking ahead, the current sixth-generation Chevy Camaro will sunset after the 2024 model year. As GM Authority covered previously, the 2024 Chevy Camaro is poised to offer a special edition “farewell” package which may be called the Heritage Edition.
The forthcoming package will be available for multiple trim levels, likely the LT, LT1, SS, and ZL1, and will probably include exterior and interior upgrades, but no significant powertrain or suspension changes.
Per previous GM Authority coverage, development of the seventh-generation Chevy Camaro has been terminated, throwing the future of the nameplate into doubt. As such, the current sixth-generation is expected to exit after the 2024 model year. To note, the sixth-gen Camaro was originally introduced for the 2016 model year.
Looking ahead, it’s possible the Chevy Camaro nameplate may be used in conjunction with a new all-electric performance sedan, which would fall in line with GM’s plans to transition to a full EV powertrain lineup across its passenger vehicle portfolio by 2035.
For now, though, the sixth-gen Chevy Camaro offers a selection of gasoline-powered internal combustion engines, including the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LTG, the naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LGX, the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 LT1, and finally, the supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4. Under the body panels, the Chevy Camaro rides on GM’s Alpha platform.

It’s about time. This car is much too big for its class. I rented one earlier this year in California and I never felt more claustrophobic.
You should probably stick to driving your Camry.
Rose Malone – your comment contradicts itself. You say the car is too big for it’s class and yet you never felt more claustrophobic driving it? Let that sink in a bit. Ha ha ha ha
A bit of contradiction but the claustrophobic probably comes from the sunk in bunker feeling.
He’s right, the Camaros interior is smaller than a miata.
You either don’t know what the word “big” means, or you don’t know what the word “claustrophobic” means (or maybe you don’t know the meaning of either one) but they are polar opposites! Might I suggest you rent a motorcycle next time as they have no doors.
For al those who personally attack Rose Malone for her comments, you should really read the sentence. First part “it is too big for it class”, second part “it feels claustrophobic”. These statement are only related to the vehicle, not to each other.
Please no personal attacks. Critic the vehicle, not the person.
It’s not a personal attack, her comment makes no sense. In contrast it should be a saller car to fit its class (whatever that means) but then should have a roomier interior? How exactly do you pull that off? And it’s classmates are the Mustang and Challenger. The mustang is the same size as the camaro the challenger has a roomier interior and guess what it’s an even bigger car. You people make no sense your just looking for something to b1tch about.
It feels fine to me. I have no issues driving my 22 2SS Camaro. Actually smaller in size than a CAMRY as I owned a 2018 Camry XSE before the Camaro. Camaro fits in my garage space better than the Camry.
Can’t wait to see how further GM restricts the customer from ordering options of their choice when the last year rolls on to it’s sad conclusion. Some thoughts: That an EV replacement has not been announced just speaks to the incompetence of the GM Suits. The Camaro nameplate will live-on In Memory for decades beyond it’s final assembly line roll-off, while these people will long be forgotten. But their destruction of a once-proud corporation, will still be felt. Another thought: with the conclusion of the Camaro, I wonder what happens with the GM-Nascar affilliation…….. where does a Hendrick Motorsports or a Richard Childress turn to? Cadillac and their Blackwing (I believe that nameplate is also slated for cancelling)? A Chevy Trax or Blazer? LOL…..that one bears watching.
It is so sad to see the camaro ending. I have a 2021 lT1 camaro and I love it. You people better get on the ball and get yours while you can.
GM hasn’t said a single word about discontinuing the Camaro… this article is full of speculation..
GM never says anything about products they will discontinue. It’s no different for the camaro.
Yes, it’s going away. No, your hopes and words to the contrary won’t change that.
Steven – if that is even your real name… where is the speculation?
I see GM Authority has some specific dates about the 2023 model year production ending. That’s not speculation.
Seems to me that you just a mad troll. Prove me wrong.
Went to the Chicago 2023 Auto Show and asked the Chevrolet rep about the Camaro being discontinuing and they stated that GM has not made an official statement of discontinuing and every year since 2017 the RUMOR says they are…
I wonder what BS eulogy they will give for its death.
Mmmm, I have my eye on ordering a final year model but now I’m worried that it may be a very limited edition that may not be attainable by the average buyer. Maybe I should just order a 23 SS convertible.
Or buy a real muscle car: Challenger, Mustang, Hi-po Charger
No thanks, I am a GM customer, for at least as long as they build ICE vehicles. No Chryslers in my past or future and I gave up on Fords long ago, they just became too difficult to maintain.
Article in today’s Wall Street Journal about how Ford is getting killed by warranty costs.
Challenger and Chargers are nice, but they are overweight pigs.
LOL…the Camaro outperforms both of them. Heck Ford has updated their Coyote V8 three times with HP/TQ bumps and it still gets beat in performance tests! Wish GM would wake up and realize what a performance bargain they have with the Camaro. It needs a HP/TQ bump, a interior refresh, along with a way to make it a little bigger for backseat riders.
I live in Canada and have had a ZL1 on order for almost two years now. GMs idiotic allocation system allows one of the largest dealerships where we live only one car per year. There’s a waiting list of people wanting them. Good thing the “suits” are discontinuing the car!!!
Gm is a woke company full of hysterical climate warriors. Ev is not going to succeed . Among other issues they are ridiculously expensive a pain to constantly charge and lithium is in short supply and we cannot provide adequate energy
Ice cars will be her in 2080 believe it and gm will be bankrupt again. We will be driving Toyota’s
These auto makers need to incorporate the SOUND of a V8 into cars like the Camaro,Corvette,and Mustang if thay are going to become EV’s. Who doesn’t like the sound of cars I mentioned? It somehow has to sound like a V8
That is exactly what Dodge is doing with the electric Charger. There’s a great video on it that touches on how they created an exhaust system to create the rumble of a V8. It’s very interesting! That being said, until they make an EV that can go 400 miles on a charge and can recharge as fast as I can fill the tank of my Camaro SS, I’ll just hold on to what I have and enjoy it.
I read doubt the charger will be electric. If you look at it, it features a transmission axel and everything a hemi will need for the next gen vehicle….. so is the EV charger a ruse?? Does it allow for “EV” allocated money be repurposed for Ice???
My prediction? There will be a gen 6.5 camaro. Even the “new” mustang is a continuation of the mustang released in 2014. It’ll be too easy to add the TL2 to the camaro and drop the 3.6 in favor of the 2.7, add a new grill and a bigger screen.
Also, since the raptor, millennials gave favored off roaders to muscle cars. We’ll soon see if gen Z prefers off roaders/muscle or luxury vehicles as their vanity car of choice. This segment may explode in the next 5 years.
Don’t worry. Give this EV crap a year or two and then ask how everyone feels about the green agenda! We will be helping to tow that junk of the roads, with Silverados and Sierras.
Sad times ahead. At least Ford will still be making the Mustang in its current form with a manual transmission on the V8 models.
Another sad day coming for GM and Camaro loyalists. But at least it will be going out arguably in its best form. I doubt the designers at GM could do any better. I just hope they don’t reuse the name for a vehicle that doesn’t have the Camaro spirit.
LOL. Compared to what?
Everything in its class. Thank god it’s getting canceled.
Rose needs to learn how to drive I drove a SS about 2 years ago hardtop six speed I felt it had good balance and well mannered and I own two Corvettes one’s a C6 ZO6 and I enjoyed the Camaro quite a bit would definitely consider it an SS I still believe the electric car thing is really a pipe dream not doable in the real world needed be noted that they’re almost 300 million vehicles in this country think about trying to charge them in the event of a hurricane destruction like just having in Florida or an earthquake or just a general power outage then you’re going nowhere as usual more stupidity good luck America you’re going to need it
Can’t believe what I’m reading. A ZL1/1LT isn’t a muscle car? Fake engine noise? My parents bought me a new 1971RS/Z28 for my 16th birthday that I still have and I bought a new 2012 Zl1, that I also still have. Mopar and Ford make really nice cars but no way are my Camaro’s pieces of junk. Unfortunately if you want a Heritage Edition ZL1the option it will probably be on constraint just like the ZO6/ZO7 package that I gave my dealer a deposit on in April of 2019. Not saying that it is GM’s fault but very disappointing. I wish they could outsource less and have more control over what they build. Just a thought. Thanks.
This is a repeat of the 2002 model. I bought it and then a movie comes out with a future Camaro.This is the slow distruction of gm Chevy sports cars.Electric is not the answer and gm will pay dearly at the consumer level for the majority of us want our gas engines.The ceo of gm has drunk the cool aid of the woke administration.
Would have loved to have seen an updated version of the 2Gen Camaro. I owned a 71. Always thought it was one of the best looking production cars to come out of the GM Styling Center. Especially the RS split bumper version.
After having owned a couple of Chevrolet muscle cars, I am appalled every time I see a V6 Camaro that has NO SOUND(throaty rumble like my 427 had). Then I get passed by a Mustang. It is no wonder they are ending the Camaro. Maybe if they built all 2023-4 Camaro’s with a supercharged 6.2 they would get what their problem is. Do a survey of current Camaro buyers who owned a performance Chevrolet in the past. Why am I building a 1996 Impala with a 502?
I’m sure clever engineers and modeling software could produce a fully standards compliant Camaro that looked nearly identical to the 67-69 models. That was a beautiful design with a useful rear seat, outward visibility and trunk space. I’d love to have a 67-69 but with all the safety, engineering and technology features of the current models.
1st – I was angry when GM stop production the 1st time. I’ve owner 8 Camaros through my lifetime.! Do not end the Camaro production !!!!
2nd – Camaro’s history is AMERICAN MUSCLE
=> NO EV’s
3rd – If GM thinks there’s no market for both the Camaro & Vet – fire the Engineers, Marketing Department, & Every Board Member!!! You’re the problem…. => Ford & Dodge seem to keep finding the Market.
its annoying to see “the future is still uncertain” and then mention production is ending after 2024
Bought our son a new 2017 Garnet Red Tintcoat Camaro 1LT RS, V6, A8 (no transmission issues after the correct fluid flush), sunroof, in 2018 when he was a junior in HS. We love it. No vision issues if you know how to adjust mirrors! Not enough back seat room? It’s a sports car for goodness sake. Want more room. buy one of the hundreds of SUV/Cue’s available. He’s a senior in college now and has 22K on it, as he has really taken care of it. Gets compliments on it everywhere he goes. Hope he can keep it always.
To be clear, I am not a Camaro buyer. But to be even more clear, GM should NOT end this car. For what? Another boring box of an SUV/CUV? No way.
I don’t even have an issue with them making the Camaro an EV due to the great performance of the EV’s. But keep it around.
Luke: I’m not saying they are discontinuing it. The article seems to infer that. What I said is that they should not end it and instead keep making it, even if it means as an EV. And no, I’m not pushing for EV’s. I actually love my ICE powered cars, but EV is coming and it will be a fact of life as they continue to make improvements and advances in that tech. So I do hope it’s rumors and that they do keep the Camaro.
Here’s what I just don’t get and I do understand that GM is a company that needs to make money by selling product. But does that all need to be done with SUV’s? I don’t feel a model needs to sell 100K or more a year just to be and stay relevant within GM.
At least the Blazer’s interior resembles a Camaro. We can always pretend can’t we 🙄
GM should start building the performance Camaro’s that people are ordering and can’t get, they would make a fortune,《mismanagement》
I have owned a 2016 Chevrolet SS and a 2018 Chevrolet Camaro- At this point I would be much more interested in the Darkhorse Mustang over a Heritage 2024 Chevrolet Camaro that hasn’t had an interior upgrade in five years. Last chance to own a brand new ZL1 though- Decisions- Decisions
That’s what’s called letting the model die.
No upgrades for years other than some new stickers or badges.
