The 2024 Chevy Camaro is the final model year for the current sixth-generation sports car, offering up a few crucial updates and changes compared to the preceding 2023 model year. It goes without saying that enthusiasts will love the 2024 Chevy Camaro for many different reasons, but perhaps one of the most important is the availability of the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 LT1 engine. Now, GM Authority has learned that GM will produce more 2024 Chevy Camaro units with the 6.2L V8 LT1.
According to GM Authority sources, General Motors will produce roughly 60 percent more units of the 2024 Chevy Camaro equipped with the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 LT1 engine, as compared to the number of LT1-powered 2023 Chevy Camaro units that were produced. Basically, that means more Chevy Camaros equipped with the LT1 engine will be produced for the 2024 model year than were produced for the 2023 model year. Production of the 2024 Chevy Camaro will begin August 7th, 2023, per a GM Authority exclusive.
All of that should come as good news for those Camaro fans eager to snag an example of the iconic Chevy performance vehicle with a generous heaping of atmospheric V8 goodness under the hood. As a reminder, the LT1 engine is available for three 2024 Chevy Camaro trim levels, including LT1, 1SS, and 2SS. Engine specs include cast aluminum construction for the block and head, Active Fuel Management, and Variable Valve Timing (VVT). The LT1 can also be found under the hood of the C7 Chevy Corvette.
In the Chevy Camaro, output from the LT1 is rated at a maximum of 455 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 455 pound-feet of torque at 4,400 rpm.
The 2024 Chevy Camaro will officially sunset the sixth-generation Chevy Camaro, and as such, it offers a few enticing special edition models, including the 2024 Chevy Camaro Collector’s Edition, as well as the 2024 Chevy Camaro Garage 56 Edition.
