The final year of the sixth-gen Camaro comes at a price.
Some tears were shed when Chevrolet announced the Camaro would be discontinued after the 2024 model year. In preparation for the Camaro's retirement, GM has already made some changes to the lineup. The turbocharged four-cylinder will not be made available, relegating the 3.6-liter V6 to entry-level status.
The LT will ship standard with this engine, pushing the base price up to $32,495 in coupe form and $38,495 in convertible guise. That makes it a substantial $4,700 pricier than the outgoing base model, the 1LS RWD, which uses the 2.0-liter four-pot. It's worth noting the 2024 V6-equipped LT is also $2,605 pricier than its 2023 counterpart.
Chevrolet has not explained why it has dropped the turbocharged model and the LS trim level. However, one can assume the automaker is trying to streamline its offerings as it prepares to wrap up sixth-gen Camaro production for good.
If you're interested in bagging yourself a Collector's Edition, you'll be pleased to know this limited edition will be offered on all trim levels (including the LT and SS), not just the fire-breathing ZL1. As for pricing, CarsDirect got the full breakdown for all trims with the Collector's Edition option.
The 1LT (with RS Package) will command $39,440, while the LT1 (with RS Package) will set you back $47,385. For these two models, the special package costs $4,995 and $5,495 to equip, respectively. On the 1SS trim level, you're looking at a total cost of $49,890, as the Collector's Edition package costs $5,995.
It's the ZL1 that enthusiasts will be most interested in, with the range-topper priced at $88,690. In ZL1 guise, the package is priced at $14,995. So, what do customers get for the additional outlay?
On LT/RS, LT1, and SS models, the Collector's Edition pairs Panther Black Metallic Tintcoat paint with Satin Black stripes. These trims also receive 20-inch wheels with a Satin Black finish, along with a 1LE front spoiler. Coupe models are treated to a ZL1-style spoiler, and customers can specify optional forged alloy wheels.
The ZL1 further differentiates itself with Panther Black Matte paint, a black ZL1 stripe, red brake calipers, and black lug nuts for the wheels. Additionally, the exterior is uplifted by the rear wing from the ZL1 1LE. Unlike lesser Camaros, the ZL1 Collector's Edition will be limited to just 350 units, making it super exclusive.
Aside from this, Chevy is also celebrating the Camaro with a Garage 56 Edition, to celebrate the Camaro that participated in Le Mans. The company also has plans to release 50 convertibles inspired by the Indianapolis 500, and the 20-inch Caliente wheel design has been dropped.
