One for the Road: Chevrolet Camaro Officially Says Goodbye

We've known for a while that the sixth-generation Chevrolet Camaro is on the way to the great junkyard in the sky. Now Chevy has officially announced the send-off.


The final sixth-gen Camaros will roll off the assembly line at Lansing Grand River Assembly in January 2024.

A Collector's Edition will be available on 2024 RS and SS models and on some ZL1 units. More details on what that edition will offer are set to be announced later, though Chevy does say it will have details that harken back to the first-gen car and its internal code name of Panther.

Race fans shouldn't fret -- Chevrolet plans to keep the Camaro involved in its racing efforts. There are no further details on that -- we'll guess that specifics might depend on the series. We do think that the body style will continue to drape NASCAR stockers.

Finally, Chevy says that this is NOT the end of the run for the nameplate. Whether that means a successor is planned -- perhaps EV or electrified -- or the name will be cynically slapped on some crossover trim level, we shall see. Let's hope for the former over the latter.

Tim Healey grew up around the auto-parts business and has always had a love for cars — his parents joke his first word was “‘Vette”. Despite this, he wanted to pursue a career in sports writing but he ended up falling semi-accidentally into the automotive-journalism industry, first at Consumer Guide Automotive and later at Web2Carz.com. He also worked as an industry analyst at Mintel Group and freelanced for About.com, CarFax, Vehix.com, High Gear Media, Torque News, FutureCar.com, Cars.com, among others, and of course Vertical Scope sites such as AutoGuide.com, Off-Road.com, and HybridCars.com. He’s an urbanite and as such, doesn’t need a daily driver, but if he had one, it would be compact, sporty, and have a manual transmission.

    No Chevy SS, No Camaro, No Monte Carlo, hell, no Lumina. Behold the 2024 Hendricks Chevy Suburban stock car.

    The Camaro always had to contend with the Corvette. Up until the mid-engine Corvette, bother were just muscle cars occupying the same niche.


    The demise of the Challenger and Camaro will be great news for Ford and the Mustang. Once again they are the last domestic Muscle car standing.

  • 28-Cars-Later Can we end debt slavery next? Its getting to the point where its no longer voluntary.
  • Carson D Honda and Toyota still make the best American cars.
  • Slavuta I just though, with this rate we could make Cinco De Mayo a national holiday as well. Since we have tens of millions of American Mexicans, and probably more than African Americans
  • Wjtinfwb Well, it LOOKS pretty great for 36 years old and 356k miles! I've seen plenty of 2 decade newer trucks that looked like a shrapnel bomb went off inside and and exterior that looked worse. This owner got everything out of that truck it had. Time to let it retire to the farm.
  • Wjtinfwb Stellantis. They've gone from Hero to Zero in 24 months with some really stupid decisions and allowing politicians to influence their business. They also hung onto old products way too long and relied on RAM and Jeep to pull them through. RAM plays in the most competitive market of all, full-size trucks and competition is brutal with Ford and GM keeping their foot to the floor on development and improvement. Chrysler now has one model, a 5 year old van. Dodge made a living off old cars with stupendous power, that's gone with the mothballing of the Hemi. The Hornet is an overpriced joke. Now they have new Durango Pursuit's self-destruction because of a plastic oil cooler that self destructs and dumps oil into the coolant lunching the engine. Grand Cherokee, a staple of Jeep has not been well received and has limited power options due to canning the Hemi. Now they've got to build interest around the Hurricane turbo in-line 6 in trucks, Charger's and Jeeps. If that engine turns out to be problematic its likely lights out in Sterling Heights.
