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.
