The 2022 Chevrolet Camaro will solider on relatively unchanged from 2021, with a few exceptions. Of which, MC&T has continued to shed light on what customers can expect, such as copper-free performance brakes, and a new Design Package 3 that more or less replaces the Wild Cherry Design Package from 2021. The latest tweak for the 2022 model year, according to the Camaro’s official dealer order guide, is the addition of Rapid Blue exterior hue for the Shock and Steel Special Edition.

Opening up the color palette for the Camaro Shock and Steel Special Edition continues a trend that was observed in 2021, from 2020. In 2020, Chevrolet only offered the Shock and Steel package in two exterior paint colors: Shock and Satin Steel. These colors were obviously the namesake of the package, but for 2021, buyers had the choice to spec their Chevrolet Camaro Shock and Steel Edition muscle car in either black or white, as well. For the 2022 Camaro, it’s now all four of these colors, plus Rapid Blue.

The 2022 Chevrolet Camaro Shock and Steel Special Edition (RPO code B2E) will vary in its appearance depending on the exterior color it’s ordered with. For instance, with Rapid Blue, the center stripe is painted Silver instead of Carbon Flash. The stripe is colored Shock yellow when the exterior choice is black, and is Satin Steel Metallic when the package is ordered with Summit White. Otherwise, the Shock and Steel package features a black fuel door with a visible carbon fiber insert accessory from the 650 hp Camaro ZL1, yellow painted calipers, black sueded knee pads, a carbon fiber instrument panel molding, and premium carpet floor mats. Completing the look is a set of 20-inch blade design aluminum wheels.

The 2022 Chevrolet Camaro Shock and Steel Special Edition includes everything in the popular RS package, and is available on 2LT, 3LT and 2SS coupe and convertible trims. It’s not available on the base 1LS trim, the popular LT1 trim, the 1SS trim, nor the range-topping ZL1. It also can’t be paired with the 1LE performance package. Oddly, the package cannot be paired with copper-free performance brakes, which could limit its availability in People’s Liberated Republic of California.

The sixth-generation Chevrolet Camaro is expected to live on until 2023. Original plans for the seventh-generation Camaro were scrapped, as were the plans for a sixth-generation Camaro Z/28 and its unique 6.6L small block V8 engine. MC&T exclusively reported on this news back in the summer of 2019.

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.
