Sixth-Generation 2023 Chevy Camaro Primed with 668-Horsepower 6.2-Liter V8

Everyone here at Jim Butler Chevrolet has always loved the Camaro, and they’ll be happy to know it will be around until the 2024 model year and may even be still happily scorching pavement two years after that. A few camouflaged prototypes have been spotted by the Motor Authority staff that appeared to be a variant to provide a sendoff for the current-model Camaro. It is said to be arriving with the 6.2-liter supercharged V8 currently found in the Cadillac CT-5 V Blackwing.

It’s a powerful and aggressive number that will crank out 668 horsepower and 659 lb-ft of torque or maybe even more! The Challenger and Mustang both have options that deliver over 750 horsepower, and this model could arrive for the 2021 model year and last through 2024. Many lovers of this legendary and high-performing pony car wonder what lies in the future after 2024, and there are rumors that a brand-new electric performance sedan may be coming next.

Since Dodge has already officially confirmed an electric muscle car for 2024 and Ford already sells an electric Mustang, it is plausible the Camaro will follow suit. The 2022 Camaro is keeping the pleasantly old-school muscle car segment alive while still boasting a high-tech interior and class-leading handling performance. The 2LT offers up desirable features such as heated and ventilated seats and other goodies to keep you nice and comfortable behind the wheel. The 2SS is perhaps the most well-rounded trim, balancing the V8’s hearty acceleration with a good helping of modern technology and comfort features.

The 3LT features heated and auto-dimming outside mirrors, an 8-inch touchscreen, a 9-speaker Bose audio system, upgraded driver information display, a rear camera mirror, customizable ambient lighting, a heated steering wheel, and a wireless charging pad. The 1SS trim has Brembo and front and rear brakes, enhanced powertrain cooling, rear spoiler, and 8-inch touchscreen along with upgraded driver information center.

From the minute it was first introduced to what may someday transform quite heavily into an electrified model, the Camaro has always been destined for stardom. Originally code-named “Panther”, this was the competitor to the Ford Mustang that won over the hearts of many. In a world where practicality reigns and many drivers are on the hunt for a vehicle with personality, the Camaro has consistently delivered breakneck excitement and raw power.
