General Motors has released a Service Bulletin for certain units of the Chevy Camaro due to an issue with a trunklid that doesn’t want to open.
Tagged with Bulletin Number 23-NA-211, select 2023 Camaro and 2024 Camaro units may have a condition where the trunklid refuses to open regardless of commands from the power buttons or keyfob. In light of this, it’s likely that the Emergency Trunk Release (ETR) handle is not properly seated, which could cause the trunk latch to prevent the lid from opening.
To remedy this inconvenience, certified GM technicians are to inspect affected vehicles and verify that the ETR handle is snapped upward into its bezel. Once that has been confirmed, techs will verify that all trunk latch functions – which include keyfob power release, an exterior button and an interior button – operate normally.
As a reminder, the sixth-generation Chevy Camaro was available with a suite of powertrain options, including the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LTG gasoline engine, rated at 275 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque, naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LGX gasoline engine, rated at 335 horsepower and 284 pound-feet of torque, naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 LT1 gasoline engine, rated at 455 horsepower and 455 pound-feet of torque, and supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4 gasoline engine, rated at 650 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque.
Notably, the 2.0L LTG engine was discontinued for the 2024 model year. For its final year on sale, the Camaro was offered with a couple of limited-run packages, including the Collector Edition available on all trim levels, and the Garage 56 Edition available on the range-topping ZL1.
Under the skin, the Camaro rode on the GM Alpha platform. Moving forward, General Motors has not released any concrete information regarding an upcoming seventh-generation, but has alluded to the return of the Camaro nameplate.
