Camaro Axed after 2024, but a Successor Is ComingCar and Driver
  • The sixth-generation Chevrolet Camaro will go out of production in January 2024, the automaker announced today.

  • For its final model year, Chevy will introduce a Collector's Edition, although no details on the package have been revealed yet.

  • Chevy says that the Camaro nameplate will live on and that a successor will be announced in the future.

Chevrolet announced today that the sixth-generation Camaro will end production after the 2024 model year. The last examples of the muscle car are set to roll off the line at the Lansing Grand River Assembly Plant in January of next year. While there is no direct successor waiting in the wings, Chevy promises that "this is not the end of Camaro’s story.”

The sixth generation ran for nine years, selling a healthy 72,705 units in its first full year on sale in 2016. Yet it was never able to reach the heights of the fifth generation—which crested the 80,000-unit mark in five different years—and sales dwindled to just 24,652 vehicles in 2022.

A special Collector's Edition will arrive for the Camaro's final year, although Chevy has yet to provide details on what it includes. For now, we just have a shadowy teaser. The automaker did divulge that it will have "ties that date back to the development of the first generation Camaro in the 1960s" and referenced that Camaro's original codename, Panther. The package will be fitted to the RS and SS models, as well as a limited number of the ZL1 variant.

With the Dodge Challenger biting the dust after 2023, the Camaro's demise leaves the Ford Mustang as the only remaining American muscle car. But Dodge is promising an electric competitor, inspired by the Charger Daytona SRT concept, and we expect that whatever Chevy cooks up to wear the Camaro nameplate next will include some form of electrification. The muscle car world is in for some major changes.
