The 2024 Chevy Camaro will be the final model year for the current sixth-gen sports car. To mark the occasion, the Bow Tie brand is offering up a new special variant dubbed the Collector’s Edition, as GM Authority covered previously. However, that isn’t the only change in store, as the 2024 Chevy Camaro will also no longer offer the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LTG gasoline engine.
With the announcement of the new 2024 Chevy Camaro Collector’s Edition, Chevrolet also listed off the sports car’s powertrain options, which include 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. Notably, the turbocharged 2.0 I4 LTG gasoline engine is absent from the list.
The Chevy Camaro was the last GM model to offer the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LTG gasoline engine. The boosted four-banger was previously offered for the 2022 Chevy Malibu, but was dropped from the lineup following an early build-out date. The engine option did not return for the Malibu’s 2023 model year.
Per a GM Authority exclusive, production of 2023 Chevy Camaro units equipped with the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LTG gasoline engine began winding down earlier this year. Now, with the 2024 Chevy Camaro set to hit production this August at the GM Lansing Grand River plant in Michigan, the turbo 2.0L I4 LTG gasoline engine will no longer be offered.
In terms of specs, Chevy Camaro units equipped with the turbo 2.0L I4 LTG were rated at 275 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. By comparison, the naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LGX is rated at 335 horsepower and 284 pound-feet of torque, the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 LT1 is rated at 455 horsepower and 455 pound-feet of torque, and the supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4 gasoline engine is rated at 650 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque. The sixth-gen Chevy Camaro rides on the GM Alpha platform.
Looking ahead, the Chevy Camaro nameplate may be used in conjunction with a new EV sub-brand.
