2021 CHEVROLET CAMARO GETS TWO NEW ACCESSORY EXHAUST TIPS

These Chevrolet Performance Add-Ons Will Help Finish The Look Of Nearly Any Sixth-Gen Camaro

The 2021 Chevrolet Camaro updates are minor, but here’s something that performance enthusiasts may enjoy; a pair of sporty looking exhaust tips that will add character and a finishing touch to their pony car. One is a Black Chrome Exhaust Tip, and the other a Carbon Fiber Exhaust Tip. Neither add any extra power, but we’d be lying if we said they didn’t look fantastic.

The new exhaust tips are available for both the 2021 Chevy Camaro Coupe and Convertible. They are available for the 1LT, 2LT, 3LT, 1SS, and 2SS trim levels. They are not offered on the Camaro LT1 or ZL1 variants at this time. Regardless of the configuration, pricing for these accessories will remain the same. For those wondering, the Black Chrome Exhaust Tip (LPO Code VTA) accessory is priced at $480 USD, while pricing for the Carbon Fiber Exhaust Tip (LP Code 5VF) is $650 USD. They are not quad-tip.

Per Chevrolet, the Black Chrome Exhaust Tip is built from 304 Stainless Steel with a Black chrome coating. Impressively, each 3-inch Black Chrome Exhaust Tip has been validated to resist corrosion and discoloration while maintaining the New Vehicle Limited Warranty. The development of the exhaust tip was done under maximum payload, operating temperatures of over 572 degrees Fahrenheit and extreme corrosion chamber testing equivalent to 5 years, so it won’t look like it belongs in a junkyard after a few seasons. The Carbon Fiber Exhaust Tip is of the same quality, but comes with the lightweight woven cladding that customers can’t seem to get enough of.

The official 2021 Chevrolet Camaro otherwise sees three new packages customers can order for their new muscle car. Like the Wild Cherry Design Package, these new options are strictly appearance packages, and don’t provide any performance upgrades. They are: the Satin Black Front Splitter/Side Package (LPO: PCR), the Black Accent Exterior Package (LPO: PCK), and the Red Accent Exterior Package (LPO: PCY). These accessory bundles were previewed during the 2019 SEMA Show with a Camaro LT1 Convertible Concept.

Pricing for 2021 Chevrolet Camaro trim levels remains unchanged from 2020.

The sixth-generation Chevrolet Camaro is expected to run its course by the 2023 model year. By 2024, General Motors is allocating a purely electric vehicle at the Lansing Grand River Assembly plant, where the Camaro is currently built alongside the Cadillac CT4 and CT5. While it’s possible that an electric Camaro could be that product, it’s more than likely going to be a Cadillac, as GM has tasked its luxury brand as being the tip of the spear with regards to the company’s “all electric future” product strategy.

Some highlights over the years of his reporting include the uncovering of the Zora trademark before anybody else reported on the coming of a mid-engine Corvette, as well as the dead-accurate reporting of the coming of the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2, two years before it hit the market, and even before the debut of the concept vehicle. This type of reporting has immediately continued here, with reports of the original seventh-generation Camaro plans being shelved, as well as what's in store for the Chevrolet Silverado.

Some of his work can be found on massive automotive media outlets, such as Motor1. He also has been a guest on the 910AM Radio Station with Detroit News auto critic Henry Payne, as well as the enthusiast-oriented Camaro Show podcast.

Over the years, Manoli has interviewed various automotive industry titans, leaders, and people that make things happen otherwise. These include figureheads such as GM CEO Mary Barra, GM President Mark Reuss, automotive aftermarket icon Ken Lingenfelter, Dodge firebrand Tim Kuniskis, along with various chief engineers of vehicles such as the Ford F-150 & Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro & Corvette, and many more.

At MC&T, Manoli is taking his journalism expertise, deeply planted sources, driving abilities, and automotive industry knowledge to new levels, covering more vehicles and brands than ever before. This is the place where you will continue to read groundbreaking stories about American performance vehicles, pickup trucks, and sport utility vehicles. Here is where you’ll also read insights and quotes from various automotive subject matter experts on the latest relevant products, as well as some of the latest official news from their manufacturers.

Fun facts: he also once beat Corvette Racing driver Tommy Milner in an autocross with a Chevrolet Bolt EV. The biggest vehicle he’s ever driven is a John Deere mining truck. Besides a go-kart, the smallest vehicle he’s driven has been a Hyundai i10. He’s also spent time in the cockpit of various American performance vehicle icons, including the fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, Dodge Challenger Demon, and Ford Mustang GT350R. He has reviewed dozens of trucks, SUVs, and performance vehicles over the years.

One of his favorite new vehicles on the market today happens to be the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison. He is also a card carrying member of the Sports Car Club of America, and regularly participates in Detroit Region autocross events.
