Release date, price and specs

The Chevrolet Camaro is an American muscle car that rivals others like the Ford Mustang and the Dodge Challenger. It’s been around since the 60s and we don’t know what will happen to the nameplate in the future given the growing popularity of electric and hybrid cars. However, here’s what we can expect for the 2023 Chevrolet Camaro.

According to GM Authority, production of the 2023 Chevrolet Camaro began on June 17e, so we can expect to see actual models appearing at dealerships soon. How long? We would make an estimate by the end of next month or so, barring a supply chain blockage. For now, you can still find 2022 Camaro models at a dealership near you.

How much will the 2023 Camaro cost?

The 2023 Camaro is priced slightly higher than the 2022 model. To be specific, there was an $800 year-over-year price increase for lower trims and a $3,700 increase $ for the ZL1. Here is the breakdown:

  • Camaro 1LS: $27,195
  • Camaro 1LT: $27,695
  • Camaro 2LT: $29,695
  • Camaro 3LT: $33,695
  • Camaro LT1: $37,195
  • Camaro 1SS: $40,695
  • Camaro 2SS: $45,695
  • Camaro ZL1: $68,095

That’s a pretty big price gap between the entry-level Camaro 1LS and the top-end Camaro ZL1. However, the Camaro’s price remains comparable to that of the Mustang and Challenger, which may be enough to attract potential buyers to the Bowtie brand. Also remember that these prices also include destination charges.

2023 Chevy Camaro Changes

The 2023 Chevy Camaro doesn’t bring many changes. Autoblog notes that the changes are mostly cosmetic, with the bulk being paint changes and a few aesthetic updates. To start, two new colors will be offered – Radiant Red and Sharkskin Metallic – as well as 20-inch wheels, a rear spoiler and a black and yellow stripe kit for the 2LT, 3LT and 2SS versions. levels.

There are also a few carbon fiber trim pieces and painted brake calipers that can be added to the mix when customizing a 2023 Camaro. Otherwise, most standard features and engine options remain the same.

What’s under the hood of the 2023 Camaro?

Just like the outgoing model, the 2023 Camaro LT and LS will come standard with a turbocharged inline-4 engine that develops 275 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. However, a 335 horsepower V6 is available on these same versions. Those who want to get the most out of their Camaro can opt for the LT1 or SS models, which will feature a 6.2-liter V8 under the hood. This massive engine generates 455 hp and 455 lb-ft of torque.

However, for even more power, the Camaro ZL1 comes with a supercharged V8 engine that spins the tires to the tune of 650 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. This trim level isn’t exactly for the faint-hearted, but it’s tough enough to leave other muscle cars shaking in their boots.

As for the rest of the specs of the 2023 Camaro, we can expect them to be the same as last year. This includes all electrical conveniences, dual zone climate control, a Bose audio upgrade and Apple Carplay/Android Auto. Plus, you can have any interior color you want, as long as it’s black.
