With A Few Key Changes For The New Model Year

The sixth-generation Chevrolet Camaro straddles the line between bruising American muscle and a downright sports car. Whether it be a base model car or the range-topping ZL1 1LE, the Camaro continues to offer incredible performance at any price point. And now you can spend some time speccing your ultimate version of the muscle car with the 2021 Chevrolet Camaro configurator, which has now gone live.

Chevrolet didn’t make any dramatic changes to the Camaro for the 2021 model year, and this is reflected in the new configurator. In terms of new content for 2021, GM has added two new Wild Cherry Design Packages, which MC&T was the first to confirm back in May. The Wild Cherry Design Packages 1 is available on the 2LT, 3LT, LT1, 1LZ, 1SS, and 2SS coupes, as well as on all convertible models except the ZL1. The second Wild Cherry package is more exclusive, and can only be ordered on Camaro’s in 2LT, 3LT or 2SS trims. Pricing starts at $2,145 for the level one package, though it varies depending on which trim level you are choosing to spec. The The Wild Cherry Design Packages 2 carries and MSRP of $5,595. Garnet Red Tintcoat and Rally Green Metallic were both axed for 2021 to make way for the new deep red color.

Another big change for the 2021 Chevrolet Camaro lineup is the fact that buyers may now choose to spec a 10-speed automatic with the $7,000 SS 1LE performance package. Since its inception, the hardcore 1LE package has required SS drivers to row their own gears with the six-speed manual. While this change may be upsetting to some purists, it will allow more buyers to experience all of that added track-ready hardware. The only added cost is the $1,595 Chevrolet charges for the automatic gearbox.

The starting price for a 2021 Chevrolet Camaro 1LS is $25,995, which gets you a 275 horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine and a manual gearbox. A performance bargain even in its cheapest form, the real value with the Camaro lineup comes towards the top. The supercar-rivaling Camaro ZL1 1LE fully loaded up on the configurator comes in with an MSRP of $78,370, which is miles away from the $95,000+ top spec Shelby GT500. The price delta doesn’t stop the Chevy from keeping the fight with the Ford interesting, either.

If you’re in the market for a new muscle car, or if you’re like us and can’t get enough of this stuff, you can head over to the configurator here.
