The Chevrolet Camaro gets two new colors and a new package for 2022.
Despite being overshadowed by the Ford Mustang and Dodge Challenger, the Chevrolet Camaro is back for the 2022 model year. It's going to stick around for a long time too, as reports suggest GM plans to keep the current model alive until 2024. After that, it will reportedly be replaced by an electric sedan to compete with the upcoming electric Dodge muscle car.
For 2022, the Camaro has been updated with new color options and a new package. Helpfully, Chevrolet has launched an online configurator for the 2022 Camaro, allowing potential customers to browse the new options and see what the Camaro looks like finished in the two new colors: Rapid Blue and Vivid Orange Metallic.
You may recognize Rapid Blue from the C8 Corvette Stingray's color palette, but Vivid Orange Metallic is a more eye-catching color if you want to stand out. Both colors are premium options that cost an extra $395, but Wild Cherry Tintcoat is the most expensive premium color at $495. Last year's Crush Orange and Shock Green premium color options are no longer available, however.
In addition to the new colors, a new Design Package 3 is available for the 2022 Camaro. Available with the premium Rapid Blue, Vivid Orange Metallic and Wild Cherry Tintcoat colors, Design Package 3 adds silver Camaro logos for the wheel center caps, 20-inch forged polished wheels, a black Camaro fender badge, premium carpeted floor mats, and black sueded interior knee pads.
This option will cost you an extra $5,395 and is available for every trim save for the entry 1LS and the range-topping ZL1. The configurator also reveals how much the 2022 Camaro will cost. Thankfully, pricing for the 2022 Camaro hasn't increased since last year's model.
The entry-level 1LS trim still starts at $26,195, but for $35,195 you can buy the new LT1 with a 6.2-liter V8 rated at 455 hp and 455 lb-ft. At that price, the Camaro LT1 is one of the most affordable V8-powered muscle cars on the market, undercutting the Dodge Challenger R/T by a considerable margin. This has proven to be a popular option, with 25 percent of Camaro customers opting for the LT1.
