America’s Favorite Nameplate Gets a New Tint: 2022 Chevy Camaro Debuts Vivid Orange Hue

The Fourth of July is one of our favorite holidays here at Jim Butler Chevy of St Louis, as there is never a shortage of first-rate recreational opportunities in the area. As people roar back with a newfound sense of freedom, this year’s Fourth of July Fireworks Spectacular will be sponsored by Edward Jones, and will be the largest fireworks show the city has EVER produced! The score is set to feature patriotic music blended with current hits, and all of us will be front and center for the fun. 

The Chevy Camaro is one of those iconic and legendary vehicles that brings to mind other reasons we love our nation so much, and all of the A-list muscle cars it has produced. On a hot summer’s night, there is no place we’d rather be than at exciting tracks such as the World Wide Technology Raceway, where the All-American Classic will be taking place on the three consecutive days before the 4th. Thanks to the staff of, we were able to get a sneak peek last week at the new Vivid Orange Metallic hue on tap for next year’s Camaro.

This is one of two new colors coming to our favorite and track-ready pony, alongside Rapid Blue, which made its public debut during this year’s exciting Daytona 500. The Camaro pictured is also fully equipped with the new Design Package 2, and the 2022 lineup will also experience the addition of the Design Package 3. Available on all of the models except the 1LS and ZL1 trims, it includes a satin black hood stripe with silver ice metallic hash mark, a super cool black Camaro fender badge, and a blacked-out fuel filler cap with carbon accents. 

Inside you’ll enjoy premium carpeted floor mats and black suede knee pads brandishing the Camaro logo, and the RS Package is required for the 1LT, 2LT, 3LT, and LT1 models. This unique Vivid Orange Metallic hue is a strong throwback to Hugger Orange, one of the most wildly popular hues on the classic Camaro-era models. The 2022 Camaro is set to be assembled by GM USA at the GM Lansing Grand River Factory in Michigan, the only facility in the world to assemble this vehicle that absolutely fits “fast and furious” criteria. 

When we unveiled the 2016 Camaro, it then introduced a very aggressive and modern design for the car. Two years ago it was given thinner headlights, a wider air intake, and a noticeably more bulging hood at the front. Then boasting rectangular taillights, large exhaust pipes, and chiseled rear bumper, a stance that was current yet like one of a menacing bully looking for a drag race. The 2022 model will boast an 8-inch touchscreen, a wireless charging pad, navigation, and premium Bose audio system for an exhilarating and purist’s-perfect audio upgrade.
