Chevrolet will deliver the 500,000 fifth-gen Camaro this month.
Time is running out for the current Chevrolet Camaro. Launched in 2009, Chevy has just announced that the 500,000th fifth-gen Camaro is set to be delivered to its owner in the US sometime this month. As this generation takes its final bow, Chevy wanted to take a moment to brag about the car’s achievements. For starters, it became America’s best-selling performance car for five consecutive years, passing the Ford Mustang back in 2010.
During that time, the Camaro helped to revitalize Chevy's image with 63 percent of buyers being new to GM. And get this: even as the fifth-gen Camaro is heading towards the sunset, its sales are still kicking ass.
In 2014, total sales increased by 7.1 percent and for the first two months of this year sales are up 3.6 percent. From January through February 2015, a total of 11,364 Camaros were sold in the US. Consider this Camaro going out on a high note because Chevy has now begun teasing its sixth-gen replacement, as shown in the featured video.
