Leaked order guide reveals some juicy details.
While the all-new Corvette is getting all the attention right now, the Camaro is still losing the muscle car war to the Ford Mustang and Dodge Challenger. There's even chatter of the Camaro being replaced by an electric vehicle in 2023. At least for now, the 2021 Chevrolet Camaro will arrive on the market more or less how you remembered it. GM Authority has obtained an order guide detailing all of the Camaro's updates and changes for the 2021 model year. Nothing is too outrageous but there are some tidbits worth noting.
There won't be any changes made to the Camaro's trim structure, meaning you'll still be able to order a 1LS, 1LT, 2LT, 3LT, LT1, 1SS, 2SS, or ZL1 with one of four available engines. The only mechanical change is available on the SS 1LE Track Performance Package.
All of the 1LE Track package models except for the ZL1 were previously available with a six-speed manual transmission only. For 2021, Chevy is expanding the availability of the 10-speed automatic to the SS variant. Enthusiasts may not agree with this decision but the Camaro is quicker around a track when equipped with the automatic. The manual will still be an available option for the V8 SS and the four-cylinder turbo and V6 1LE models will still be manual-only.
As for the other changes, they are less significant. Garnet Red Tintcoat and Rally Green Metallic are no longer available but Chevy has added a new color called Wild Cherry Tintcoat. Inside, the navigation upgrade kit is no longer available and CarPlay and Android Auto can now be used wirelessly, just like the recently-revealed Tahoe and Suburban. Wireless phone charging also becomes standard on 3LT and 2SS trims.
Chevy will also make some changes to the Camaro's packages for 2021. The RS Package and Redline Edition Package are now both available on the V8-powered LT1 model. The Shock And Steel Special Edition Packages as well as the Camaro Insignia Package will no longer be available for 2021. We expect pricing and availability to be officially revealed later this year, possibly at the 2020 Detroit Auto Show in June (or later in the year should it be postponed).
