Chevy Planning A Grand Camaro Finale In 2024

Muscle Cars / Comments

A new special edition is in the works.

The sixth-generation Chevrolet Camaro is a fine muscle car that more than holds its own against its arch-rivals, the Ford Mustang and Dodge Challenger. However, Camaro sales continue to tank. The writing is on the wall: the Camaro no longer makes a justifiable business case. Discontinuing it makes more sense than a redesigned successor, though Chevy is rumored to be developing an all-electric four-door muscle sedan. In all likelihood, the Camaro will die in 2024 but GM intends for it to go out with a bang.

According to the Lethal Garage YouTube channel, the American automaker intends to debut the "Heritage Edition" 2024 Camaro ZL1.

Muscle Cars and Trucks claims inside company sources have confirmed this plus a few more details. First off, the definitely not happening sixth-gen Camaro Z/28, of which a teaser sketch was released by GM design last week, does not preview this grand Camaro finale model. No major design changes are expected, but the source says this collector's edition package will expand beyond just the ZL1; it'll be offered on LT, SS, and ZL1 models. Just 2,000 units are planned at this time.

Styling-wise, expect the usual unique badging, some enhanced bodywork, accents, and hood stripes. It's way too early to get an idea regarding pricing.

Meanwhile, the 2024 Camaro ZL1 could still potentially receive a power upgrade, specifically the LT4 V8 currently powering the Cadillac CTS-V Blackwing. It's possible engineers will increase output from the current 668 hp in the Caddie to 670 hp to symbolize the Camaro's first model year of 1967. Other potential upgrades include the latest version of GM's outstanding magnetic ride control and a few other suspension and chassis enhancements.

Lastly, the report claims only a single body color will be offered: yellow. Why yellow? To honor the popular Transformers Bumblebee Camaro that first arrived in 2010. More information is expected in the coming months.
