The upcoming 2022 Chevy Camaro Coupe will go into production at the GM Lansing Grand River production facility in Michigan on Monday, June 14th, 2021, CamaroNews has learned. Order books for the 2022 Chevy Camaro will open April 8th, 2021.
The 2022 Chevy Camaro will arrive as the seventh model year of the latest sixth-generation vehicle, ushering in only a few minor changes and updates over the current model year. The changes will include a handful of new color options, a few minor changes to the equipment offered within trim levels, as well as some potential powertrain updates for the turbocharged 2.0 I4 LTG gasoline engine. More information on changes to the Camaro’s LTG engine will be covered in a follow-up post, so stay tuned. As a reminder, the turbocharged LTG currently produces 275 horsepower at 295 pound-feet of torque.
The rest of the current Camaro powertrain lineup includes the naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LGX, which produces 335 horsepower and 284 pound-feet of torque, the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 LT1, which produces 455 horsepower and 455 pound-feet of torque, and the supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4, which produces 650 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque. Transmission options include a six-speed manual as standard, and a 10-speed automatic (the turbo LTG offers an eight-speed, rather than a 10-speed automatic).
Under the skin, the 2022 Chevy Camaro will continue to ride on GM’s Alpha platform.
As CamaroNews covered previously, General Motors currently has no plans to offer a 55th anniversary special edition vehicle with the introduction of the 2022 Chevy Camaro. GM previously offered a 50th Anniversary Edition model with the 2017 Chevy Camaro, adding a host of aesthetic upgrades including 20-inch wheels, new badging orange brake calipers, and a special grille. However, no such model is planned for the muscle car’s 55th anniversary.
