The 2024 Chevy Camaro is the final model year for the current sixth-generation sports car, and as such, it brings with it several changes compared to the preceding 2023 model year. Among these changes is the deletion of numerous packages and options, including deletion of the Shock and Steel Edition package.
Tagged with RPO code B2E, the Shock and Steel Edition package was initially offered for the 2020 model year, then discontinued for the 2021 model year, reintroduced late for the 2021 model year, then carried over for the 2022 and 2023 model years.
The Shock and Steel Edition package was offered as optional for 2LT, 3LT, and 2SS trim levels, including both the Coupe and Convertible body styles. Pricing was set at $2,820. The package bundled together a variety of different aesthetic upgrades, such as the following for the 2023 model year:
- 20-inch blade design aluminum wheels (2LT and 3LT only, RPO Q7F)
- 20-inch blade design aluminum wheels (2SS only, RPO 56Y)
- Carbon Flash-painted outside mirrors
- Center stripe (Silver when Rapid Blue is ordered; Shock when Black, Sharkskin Metallic or Summit White is ordered)
- Fuel filler door in Black with visible carbon fiber insert
- Yellow-painted calipers (RPO J6E)
- Black sueded knee pads (RPO S0U)
Now, however, the Shock and Steel Edition package has been dropped with the introduction of the 2024 Chevy Camaro. Nevertheless, those customers looking to outfit their 2024 Camaro with some spiffy styling upgrades can opt for the new 2024 Chevy Camaro Collector’s Edition, or the highly limited 2024 Chevy Camaro ZL1 Garage 56 Edition.
The 2024 Chevy Camaro Collector’s Edition is available on all trim levels, and includes a variety of different content to enhance the Camaro’s looks, such as new paint, stripes, badging, 20-inch wheels, and aero bits.
Meanwhile, the 2024 Chevy Camaro ZL1 Garage 56 Edition will be limited to just 56 units total. The Garage 56 Edition package gives a nod to the Chevy Camaro race car that competed in the recent 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance event, packing in a number of competition-inspired aesthetic changes.
As a reminder, the 2024 Chevy Camaro offers three powertrain options, including the naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LGX gasoline engine, the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 LT1 gasoline engine, and the supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4 gasoline engine. The turbocharged 2.0L I4 LTG gasoline engine is no longer available for the 2024 model year. Under the skin, the Camaro rides on the GM Alpha platform, while production will kick off at the GM Lansing Grand River plant in Michigan this August.
