As GM Authority previously reported a few weeks ago, the Rapid Blue paint color was no longer able to be ordered on the 2023 Chevy Camaro. Now, a second color is unavailable for the remainder of the model year, as the Bow Tie brand’s muscle car can no longer be ordered in the Shadow Gray Metallic paint hue.
Sources familiar with the matter tell GM Authority that it’s no longer possible to order a 2023 Chevy Camaro in the Shadow Gray Metallic (color code GJI) paint color. Moving forward, the color will be built out following the week of July 17th, 2023.
For reference, Shadow Gray Metallic 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)
As a reminder, the 2023 Chevy Camaro is offered with a wide range of powertrain 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.
Under the skin, the Camaro rides on the GM Alpha platform, while production of the current model kicked off on June 17th, 2022 at the GM Lansing Grand River plant in Michigan. Notably, production of the 2023 model year will end on August 3rd, 2023.
Following its final 2024 model year, which will feature the send-off Collector’s Edition package, the sixth-generation Camaro will cease production. However, GM has already confirmed that a new generation of the Bow Tie brand’s iconic muscle car will appear sometime in the future.
