Few cars exemplify power, speed, and American innovation quite like the Chevy Camaro, which has been a “vicious animal that eats Mustangs” since it first hit the scene in 1966. Now, with the 2024 Chevy Camaro, we say goodbye to the sixth generation of this legendary pony car, and it will probably be a while before it makes a return—though we would be surprised if it took too long. Although it has not had an uninterrupted run, more often than not, the Camaro has been an iconic part of the auto industry and a major player in Chevy’s lineup. Thankfully, Chevy is sending the modern Camaro out in style, and the 2024 model delivers incredible power, gorgeous interior options, and a truly remarkable final Collector’s Edition.
No matter what you are looking for in terms of performance, there is a 2024 Camaro with your name on it. From the standard LT model with its 335-hp V6 engine to the incredible ZL1 and its 650-hp Supercharged V8, you can find a Camaro with the kind of power and exhilarating muscle to meet your needs. Every 2024 Camaro comes with a six-speed manual transmission standard, though there is a 10-speed automatic available if you prefer a less demanding driving experience. 18-inch wheels are standard, with 20-inch wheels available, along with available Brembo brakes to deliver improved stopping power and an available dual-mode exhaust system for even greater flexibility when you are on the road.
Inside, you can find a gorgeous selection of features and options to enjoy while behind the wheel, including dual-zone automatic climate control and heated and ventilated seats. A heated steering wheel is available, along with a power sunroof, and you can get an 8.0-inch infotainment display to improve your driving experience even further. One of the things we are most excited about is the special Collector’s Edition for this final sixth-generation Camaro, which features Panther Black exterior colors, forged aluminum wheels, and much more. Details for this edition can vary based on the trim you look at, but each of them is something special and the perfect way to bid farewell to an absolute legend.
As a pony car, you expect the Camaro to have some get-up-and-go when you hit the pedal—the 2024 model does not disappoint. You have a number of different trims to choose from, and your choice will directly impact the engine you get, so it is important to consider your options before picking the right Camaro. For starters, you have the LT models that feature the standard 3.6L V6 engine, which delivers a solid 335 hp and 284 lb-ft of torque. This engine, and the other two available, comes with a six-speed manual transmission standard, with a 10-speed automatic available, and we promise not to judge you for whichever one you prefer.
If you are looking for boosted performance, the 1SS and LT models come with a 6.2L V8 engine that delivers a robust 455 hp and 455 lb-ft of torque. You have a number of available options here beyond the engine that impact performance, however, so it is important to consider a number of factors. For example, the 1SS coupe has a 1LE Track Performance Package available that offers more than 1g cornering capability and a Magnetic Ride Control active suspension. Similarly, Brembo brakes come standard on the front for the LT, while the SS models feature them on both the front and rear wheels.
For unbelievable performance, you owe it to yourself to check out the 2024 Camaro ZL1, which takes power to another level entirely. This model comes with a 6.2L LT4 Supercharged V8 engine that delivers 650 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque. It comes with a MacPherson strut with Magnetic Ride Control standard and an available 1LE Extreme Track Performance Package with Multimatic DSSV dampers for improved handling. Considering the fact that this model comes with Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar summer-only tires, the kind of power it brings to the road should be clear.
When we learned that this would be the final year for the sixth-generation Camaro, we hoped that Chevy would send it out in style, and they did not disappoint. You can find remarkable features inside the 2024 Camaro, though your choice of model and trim will impact some of what you get, so keep that in mind. For example, the standard LT model is available in several trim levels, including 1LT, 2LT, and 3LT, with different features. Standard features include a 7.0-inch infotainment display, while the 2LT and 3LT come with heated and ventilated seats plus dual-zone automatic climate control.
You will find similar options and available features looking at higher trims like the SS, which is offered as a 1SS or 2SS, with differences between them. For example, the 1SS comes with an 8-inch infotainment display, while the 2SS adds navigation functionality to that. Similarly, heated and ventilated seats with a heated steering wheel are standard on the 2SS, while both models have a Performance Data Recorder available to monitor your performance on the track. Other upgrades like a head-up display and forward collision alert are standard on the 2SS but not on the 1SS model.
The pinnacle experience for the 2024 Camaro is the ZL1, which not only comes with an amazing engine but also incredible features inside. You will find RECARO heated and ventilated front seats in the ZL1 model, along with a heated, suede flat-bottom steering wheel. The 8-inch infotainment display is standard, with navigation available, along with a standard wireless charging pad for compatible devices. Advanced features like a head-up display, rear park assist, and more are also standard on this model.
Although we love special editions for vehicles as much as anyone else, we do not typically focus on them when giving our customers an overview of a car since they can be more of a secondary consideration. With the 2024 Camaro, however, we would be doing this model a disservice if we did not talk about its remarkable Collector’s Edition, designed to send this generation out with a powerful and gorgeous look. You can get this special edition with any of the trims for this final Camaro, which we love, though there are some slight differences between them. All builds of this edition include unique front fender script badging and a panther on the steering wheel badge to commemorate this incredible moment in automotive history.
Hailing back to the original code name for the development of the Camaro in the 1960s, this Collector’s Edition features a Panther Black exterior. LT, LT1, and SS models with this package come with an exclusive Panther Black Metallic Tintcoat paint job featuring Satin Black accent stripes, 20-inch Satin Black or available Polished Forged wheels, the front splitter from the 1LE package, and the rear spoiler from the ZL1 package. They also come with Satin Black outside mirrors, additional exterior details highlighting their stunning design, and microfiber-wrapped flat-bottom steering wheels inside.
Limited to only 350 available, the ZL1 Collector’s Edition changes things up with a Panther Black Matte exterior color, the first matte paint offered from the factory on a Camaro. This one comes with a Black Metallic ZL1 stripe for contrast, red brake calipers for a pop of color on the exterior, and black lug nuts to complete the look. In case that was not enough, they each have a serialized steering wheel badge on the inside that indicates their number within the limited run being produced. Those drivers lucky enough to scoop up one of these models even get a bespoke Canfield Sport 45mm watch from Shinola to commemorate this final edition with a serial number that matches the number on their vehicle’s steering wheel badge. We have never seen anything quite like this before, and we imagine we will not see it again for a long time—if ever.
