It will also gain a new color previously only available for the new Corvette Stingray.
While the Chevrolet Camaro Nascar racer has been updated for a new generation, the current road car will stick around for a few more years without any radical upgrades. Despite consistently finishing third in the muscle car sales race after the Ford Mustang and Dodge Challenger, the life of the seventh-generation Chevrolet Camaro has reportedly been extended from 2024 to 2026.
While this is only a rumor for now, Chevrolet has already confirmed the Camaro will return for the 2022 model year. However, the 2022 Camaro will have fewer options than the 2021 model.
While the 2022 Camaro will be available with a new Rapid Blue color option, which was previously only available for the new Corvette Stingray and previewed by the Camaro pace car at Daytona last month, it will also lose two color options. For 2022, the bright Crush Orange and Shock Green color options will no longer be available. Both colors were available for all 2021 Chevrolet Camaro trims for an extra $395. If you were hoping to order a 2021 Camaro in Crush Orange, you're out of luck because this color has already been removed from the palette, but at the time of writing, Chevrolet is still accepting orders for the 2021 Camaro in Shock Green.
It remains to be seen if there will be any other updates, but we're not expecting any major changes. Like the 2021 model, the 2022 Camaro will be available with four engine options, including a 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder engine producing 275 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque in the base model and a nautrally-aspirated 3.6-liter V6 rated at 335 hp and 284 lb-ft of torque. If that's not enough power for you, the LT1 trim is motivated by a 6.2-liter V8 generating 455 hp and 455 lb-ft. Topping the range is the track-focused ZL1 with a 6.2-liter supercharged LT4 V8 engine good for 650 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque.
