Back in August 2022, GM Authority reported that certain trim levels of the 2023 Chevy Camaro convertible were no longer able to be ordered with the lowered suspension option. Now, sources close to the matter tell us that all 2023 Camaro models are no longer available with this feature.
The lowering suspension upgrade system, LPO (RPO code SG3) is not available for the rest of the 2023 model year. As an LPO option, this feature is installed at the dealership, rather than at the factory when the vehicle is initially produced. Currently, it’s unknown if this option will return for the Camaro’s final 2024 model year.
Originally priced as a $2,195 standalone option on 1LT, 2LT, 3LT, LT1, 1SS and 2SS trim levels, the lowering suspension upgrade system was offered for both coupe and convertible models. Notably, this feature was not available on 1LS and ZL1 trims.
In case you missed it, the sixth-generation Chevy Camaro is set to drive off into the sunset following the 2024 model year. However, General Motors has confirmed the Bow Tie muscle car will receive a new generation sometime in the future. Unfortunately, not many details are known at this time, although it’s likely that the Camaro may return as an electric vehicle as GM looks to field 30 EVs worldwide by 2025 on its way to full carbon-neutrality by 2040.
In regard to the current sixth-generation Camaro, the Bow Tie muscle car is available with a wide range of powerplant options, including the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LTG gasoline engine, the atmospheric 3.6L V6 LGX gasoline engine, the atmospheric 6.2L V8 LT1 gasoline engine, and the supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4 gasoline engine.
