The Rapid Blue (color code GMO) exterior paint color is no longer available to order on the 2023 Chevy Camaro, GM Authority has learned. The tint will be built out after the week of June 26th, 2023.
Rapid Blue was originally exclusive to the C8 Corvette Stingray, but GM also added it to the Camaro’s palette after a pace car in that hue appeared at NASCAR events. On the 2023 Chevy Camaro, Rapid Blue was offered on all trim levels as an extra-charge color option priced at $395.
It was originally one of nine exterior colors initially available on the 2023 Camaro, which include the following (with relevant paint codes listed in parentheses):
- Black (GBA)
- Radiant Red Tintcoat (GNT)
- Rapid Blue (GMO)
- Red Hot (G7C)
- Riverside Blue Metallic (GKK)
- Shadow Gray Metallic (GJI)
- Sharkskin Metallic (GXD)
- Summit White (GAZ)
- Vivid Orange Metallic (GCF)
Additionally, it was available with four out of the five 2023 Chevy Camaro interior colorways, including Ceramic White, Jet Black, Jet Black with Red Accents, and Medium Ash Gray. It could not be ordered in conjunction with the Adrenaline Red interior color.
At this point, it’s unclear if Rapid Blue will return for the 2024 model year or if it will be replaced by a new color. The start of regular production (SORP) for the 2024 Chevy Camaro is scheduled for August 7th, 2023.
The 2024 Chevy Camaro will be the final model year for the famous GM sports car’s sixth generation. The General has announced it will release a special 2024 Chevy Camaro Collector’s Edition to commemorate the nameplate’s long history.
Few details of the Collector’s Edition have been released so far, but GM Authority has confirmed the model will be available in both convertible and coupe configurations. Teaser images also indicate the special-edition Camaro will be available in ZL1 trim with a wing-like rear spoiler and multi-spoke alloy wheels, in addition to RS and SS trims.
While the 2024 Chevy Camaro will sunset the car’s sixth generation, GM has confirmed it will revive the Camaro nameplate for a future generation of vehicles. This may take the form of a Camaro EV sub-brand including multiple all-electric models in several different segments.
Meanwhile, the current sixth-generation 2023 Chevy Camaro continues to be motivated by 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.
