The 2022 Chevrolet Camaro is just around the corner but it will arrive a little later than expected.
It is understood that Chevrolet planned to begin production of the Camaro on June 14th, 2021 but GM Authority asserts that production has been delayed until September 20th, 2021. No explanation has been given for the delay but it is understood that the delay impacts both the Camaro Coupe and Camaro Convertible models.
Order books for the 2022 Camaro opened on April 8th, although we are yet to actually see what the new Camaro will look like. Media reports suggest that it will only feature some minor updates when compared with the 2021 model. These changes will probably be limited to some differences in the equipment offered with each trim level. Some new color options are also possible.
The same line-up of engines as the 2021 model is expected to remain. As such, the range will kick off with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that pumps out 275 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque while those after more power will be able to opt for a 3.6-liter naturally-aspirated V6 producing 335 hp and 284 lb-ft. Two V8s will be offered. The entry-level 6.2-liter naturally-aspirated V8 is good for 455 hp and 455 lb-ft while the flagship LT4 supercharged 6.2-liter V8 has 650 hp and 650 lb-ft.
The Chevrolet Camaro has been lagging behind the Ford Mustang and Dodge Challenger in sales recently and it is understood that the current sixth-generation model will be phased out in 2023. It remains to be seen what form its successor will take.
