2024 Chevy Camaro: New Camaro High-Performance EV Sports Car Review

Posted on

2024 Chevy Camaro the current sixth-generation 2024 Chevy Camaro is slated to launch in 2023 as the model year 2024 vehicle. To mark its departure the 2024 Chevy Camaro will be offered a special edition “farewell” package.

The as-yet-unnamed special edition “farewell” package for the Chevy Camaro 2024 will probably be called the Heritage Edition and will be offered in various trim levels possibly including the LT LT1 SS and 2024 Camaro Zl1.

The package will also likely be limited to the exterior and interior with no powertrain or suspension changes to the standard model given that development resources have been pulled from the Chevy Camaro for about two years now.

Thus the rumored upgrade to the Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing version of the supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4 petrol engine making 668 horsepower and 659 pound-feet of torque is highly unlikely.

For the record, the 2024 Camaro Zl1 model is equipped with a supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4 petrol engine but outputs up to 650 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque.

Moreover, rumors that the Chevy Camaro will adopt Magnetic Ride Control 4.0 suspension are also very unlikely.

The lack of suspension and powertrain upgrades for the last few model years of the sixth-generation Chevy Camaro can be attributed to emissions and/or internal validation costs which cannot be justified for the nameplate at this point.

The term of discontinuation for the previous sixth-generation Chevy Camaro is somewhat uncertain as previously discussed by GM Authorities.

Development of the seventh generation model has stopped making the sixth generation model the “final” generation for the nameplate at least for now.

Going forward it has now been determined that the sixth generation Camaro will be discontinued for the 2024 model year. The sixth generation was originally introduced for the 2016 calendar year.

What happened to the legendary nameplate after that timeframe remains uncertain. One possibility is that the Chevy Camaro will be revived as a new performance EV sedan to coincide with General Motors’ move towards an all-electric future.

2024 Chevy Camaro Review

The all-electric performance model is reported as a sedan and effectively replaces the two-door Camaro. It may retain the Camaro name because Chevrolet recently used the Blazer moniker on a crossover that bears no resemblance to the historical model.

2024 Chevy Camaro

Parent company GM is transitioning all of its brands to electric vehicles over the next 13 years including performance models.

The Corvette was already slated to adopt a pure electric and hybrid powertrain in the next few years but the future of the Camaro is unclear once the current generation ends production in 2024 or so.

In presenting its plans for an all-EV future, GM illustrated its Ultium EV platform with an outline of a sports car hovering above. The image bears a striking resemblance to the current profile of the Camaro although Chevrolet has not commented on the similarity.

Reports suggest the car will be a sedan even if it retains the name even though all past Camaros were coupes. Although theoretically, Chevrolet could place any type of body on an Ultium skateboard platform.

2024 Chevy Camaro Platforms

All future GM EVs will be built on the company’s Ultium platform which can be customized to fit any size or style of vehicle.

It also supports one to three electric motors so this EV sedan can be anything from a classic rear-end performance car to a 1,000-hp all-wheel-drive superseded.

Chevrolet has given no indication of what route it will take or whether it will offer multiple batteries and motor configurations as GMC is doing now with its new Hummer EV and SUV pickups.

2024 Camaro SS

Chevy Camaro SS in EV CGI format which at least is the initial digital opinion of German virtual artist Andras Veres better known as Andras.s.veres on social media who transformed the front of the Blazer SS EV over the body of the next generation Camaro pony/muscle sixth is currently and the pixel master is probably up to something.

Meanwhile, General Motors is on an Ultium collision course with the zero-emissions market after the Chevy Bolt and Bolt EUV efforts were fraught with slow and catastrophic (fiery) sales.

GM knows that all too well which is why they are setting up a trifecta to attack the sustainable EV market the 2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV.

The Equinox EV 2024 compact crossover SUV and the mid-size high-rider Blazer EV 2024. Notice how each of them has been announced alongside its ICE counterpart and in slightly different styles.

it’s not hard to predict at least not in cyberspace where a technical platform can pull off even the most improbable of tricks that a Chevy corner office manager might want to do the same with today’s underperforming sixth-generation Camaro pony/muscle car.

In any case, at least in some ways, the Camaro EV will be a huge upgrade, especially on the zealous SS trim.

following the logic of this CGI expert who mixes the look of the Blazer SS EV with the body of the modern Camaro and if his thinking takes it to a higher level we can easily assume that under the hood is no longer a 6.2-liter 455-horsepower LT1 V8 engine but a bunch of electric motors which produces up to 557 horsepower and up to 648 lb. ft (879 Nm) of torque.

2024 Chevrolet Camaro Report

Although it hurts us to admit the Chevrolet Camaro we know may not last long in this world.

Rumors have been circulating for some time that the iconic muscle car Chevrolet might be frozen once the current generation goes its own way and those rumors escalated this week when new reports started swirling that the last Camaros could arrive for the 2024 model year.

Still, there might be some surprises left for us along the way.

According to this latest report which first reportedly appeared in the form of a private message to the team at Lethal Garage and was later allegedly confirmed by a source who spoke to Muscle Cars & Trucks Chevrolet product planners are currently working on the idea of seeing the sixth generation ‘Maro off with the so-called ” Collector’s Edition.”

According to their sources, the 2024 Camaro Collector’s Edition will be mostly an appearance package consisting of a new badge, accent stripes, bodywork adjustments, possibly a vibrant carbon fiber addition, and the obligatory yellow paintwork, perhaps as a tribute to the Bumblebee that helped inspire the current Camarossance in 2007.

Other rumors suggest that the ‘Maros may be able to benefit from performance improvements as well such as a more powerful version of the 2024 Camaro Zl1’s supercharged 6.2-liter V8 tuned to around 670 horsepower and 670 lb-ft of torque carbon-ceramic brakes and a new rear wing.

But one variant we weren’t likely to see before the sixth-generation ‘Maro disappeared: the new Camaro Z/28.

According to an anonymous Motor Trend source inside the GM one indeed being worked on appeared to pack a flat-crank C8 Corvette Z06 55 liter V8 and a manual gearbox but that was discontinued.

The closest we’re likely to see is the image at the top of this post released by GM Design’s Instagram page last week with little context but a clear resemblance to the fifth-generation Z/28 that won hearts and minds nearly a decade ago.

Of course, the automotive world’s push towards electrification certainly played a role in the possible extinction of the incipient Camaro as did the 2018 restructuring that was reported in the company looking at alignment priorities but the real fault lies as is often the case with forced-out cars.

Into the sunset with a lack of sales. While the current-generation Camaro is off to a strong start, sales have been marked in recent years as Americans continue to flock to SUVs and trucks rather than coupes and convertibles.

Didn’t help of course: the controversial 2019 model year redesign that saw the Camaro’s handsome face slaughtered so badly that GM was forced to try and walk again with the next redesign.

But if we’ve learned one thing from the automotive world you can’t keep a good nameplate.

Camaro had returned from the previous death and he would likely do it again; indeed it may end up as something like an electric performance crossover but you can bet the 2024 model year won’t be the last time we see the “Camaro” name in a Chevrolet showroom.

2024 Chevrolet Camaro Farewell Special-Edition Package

General Motors recently announced that it will be retiring the Chevrolet Camaro in the next few years. GM is working toward a major company-wide transition to electric vehicles hoping to go all-electric by the 2035 model year.

It will remove the Chevy Camaro but will first ship it with a Camaro farewell special edition package for the 2024 model year.

Although the discontinuation of the Camaro will mark the end of an era sports car enthusiasts can look forward to a new electric muscle car replacement.

Unfortunately, the Camaro is on its way out. That means there will be no redesign for the seventh-generation Camaro. Sports car enthusiasts can rest assured knowing that the sixth-generation Camaro remains available to customers despite GM discontinuing the Alpha platform on which the Camaro is based.

Chevrolet has indicated that it will keep the Camaro coupe and two-door convertible until 2024 when it officially retires.

Keep in mind that GM has a long transition window for electric vehicles so it won’t be completely ditching gas-powered vehicles for now.

Chevrolet plans to release a special edition Farewell package for the 2024 Camaro to retire the Camaro while honoring its enduring legacy. The collector’s edition is expected to be available in various trim levels including the LT LT1 SS and 2024 Camaro Zl1.

But Chevrolet may only release 2,000 units so availability is limited. All indications are that the Camaro will offer 650 horsepower along with its historic muscle.

This edition pack is likely to feature interior and exterior design improvements meant to give the Camaro the ultimate in style.

Chevrolet has hinted that the Camaro’s successor will be a “performance” electric sedan meaning Chevy isn’t abandoning muscle cars altogether. The main difference here is that Chevrolet’s four-door performance vehicle will be electric which has a lot of great benefits for the customer.

It is likely the electric sedan will feature GM’s Ultrium battery technology which is currently available in the GMC Hummer EV pickup which has 1,000 horsepower and is compared to the Porsche in speeds of up to 60 mph.

All of this ensures that being electric doesn’t mean sacrificing power or performance.

2024 Chevrolet Camaro EV: Maintains a Muscular Look in Rendering

The 2024 Chevrolet Camaro EV in a media carvibz said that it seems that it will be difficult to find a segment where electrification has a bigger challenge. After all, this American slab is all about strong emotions and V8s so how did you come up with the first part with a battery pack and electric motor?

Well, two of Detroit’s Big Three at least partially answer that question. But unlike Dodge and Ford, Chevrolet didn’t reveal anything about the future of the muscle car genre.

So at least for now, it’s up to digital proposals like this to paint a 2024+ future for the iconic Camaro.

It’s been a few years since rumors of Camaro’s death started circulating. And now only GM has avoided ignoring it but the introduction of questionable styling updates and the lack of a new derivative for the 1967-born nameplate only seems to confirm the grim unofficial chatter.

In fact, the only official detail we can keep as far as the future of the Camaro is concerned comes from a teaser released in 2020.

The image you’ll find at the bottom of the gallery below depicts an EV that looks to resemble the silhouette of the legendary model despite appearing to pack more than two doors.

Of course, this has spawned new rumors suggesting that the current sixth-generation Camaro which has been in production since 2015 will be retired in 2023 and will be replaced with a battery-powered model.

Well, the CGI masterpiece that is on our screen depicts a Camaro EV-like though it sticks to the two-door layout that has defined muscle cars for decades.

Digital artist Marouane Bembli (aka The Sketch Monkey) built the 2024 Camaro Zl1 650 hp adopting futuristic elements from the Equinox EV 2024 compact crossover that will hit the market in the fall of next year.

But in the real world, anything is possible for the Camaro. The worst-case scenario involves retirement which could be temporary (remember the 2003-2008 gap between Gen IV and Gen V?).

As for the EV transformation of the nameplate, models such as the 2024 Blazer EV electric crossover that was recently showcased show that GM has not always respected the model’s legacy (the K5 Blazer was once a full-size SUV) as is the case with the GMC Hummer EV.

So a four or five-door battery-electric model bearing the Camaro name cannot be ruled out.

But we’d rather see Chevy go head-to-head with Dodge because Dodge will unveil an electric muscle car concept a coupe this year with a production model slated for 2024.

There have also been rumors of internal combustion continuity for the Dodge although the twin-turbo 3.0L Tornado straight-six is said to replace the current V8 raft at least for most models.

There is also an optimistic scenario that this will involve GM following the path that Ford has taken.

So while Blue Oval goes by the Mustang name for its Mach E crossover the automaker is providing the future of internal combustion even though the hybrid for the pony with its seventh iteration of the ‘Stang (here are some leaked pictures of the next-generation Mustang) is expected to debut next year as a 2024 model.
