MC&T was first to deliver on some fresh 2022 Chevrolet Camaro details earlier this year, and now it’s time to for potential customers to get a real visual on what these details look like. The 2022 Camaro configurator is officially live, so let’s take a look.

2022 Chevrolet Camaro Details

Good news: pricing for trim levels appear to be unchanged from 2021. That means for just over $35,000 USD customers can treat themselves to the most affordable V8 muscle car on the market right now in the form of the 2022 Chevrolet Camaro LT1. It’s also the most powerful V8 engine for the money, too, at 455 horses. Compare that to the Dodge Challenger R/T, which comes in at 375 horsepower. It’s no wonder why the Camaro LT1 trim level has become the darling of the lineup, with its take rate swelling to over 25 percent of the entire lineup.

While clicking through the 2022 Chevrolet Camaro configurator, don’t forget to have a look at the two new hues that have joined the color wheel: Rapid Blue and Vivid Orange Metallic. The seer-sucking colors are in place of Shock Yellow, which is probably for the better. Also new for 2022 is the Design Package 3. Effectively replacing the Shock and Steel Special Edition, the Camaro Design Package 3 takes all of the content from that package, which was only available in four colors, and applies it to the entire color palette of the Chevrolet muscle car. It’s also available on all trim levels, save for the entry 1LT and the range-topping ZL1.

2022 Chevrolet Camaro production is scheduled to start in September, should there be enough semiconductor microchips to go around. The sixth-generation Camaro is otherwise expected to sunset by the 2024 model year, with the latest industry analyst report claiming that General Motors will replace it with some sort of performance electric sedan, perhaps sharing components with the eventual replacements to the Cadillac CT4 and CT5.

Stay tuned for more.

Muscle Cars & Trucks was founded by Manoli Katakis - an automotive media veteran that has been covering the latest car news since 2009. His journalism has uncovered dozens of major product changes, updates, plans, and cancellations long before automakers were ready to make things official.

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.
