Will 2023 Chevy Camaro Redesign Happening? – The 2023 Chevy Camaro is the eighth generation of the newest sixth-generation brand. The Authority has revealed the production start date. As per GM Authority sources, the 2023 Chevy Camaro is expected to begin production on June 6th, 2022.
The GM Lansing Grand River Plant in Michigan, which already produces the Cadillac CT4 & Cadillac CT5 premium sedans, will once again be the production site.
For the time being, it appears that the Chevy Camaro moniker is winding down, with a production of the seventh-generation model halted and the current sixth-generation designated as the “last” iteration.
As previously reported by GM Authority, the sixth-generation Chevy Camaro’s demise date is a shifting goal yet to be established.
2023 Chevy Camaro Changes
The switch from a front-engined to a middle-engined layout is the most dramatic modification the famous Corvette has ever seen. It was not an easy transition.
Chevy began the experiment by mounting an engine behind Holden Ute to demonstrate its notion. The C8 Corvette, on the other hand, appears to have paid off, as it is far more advanced than a car it replaces, and everyone is anticipating when other carmakers will develop mid-engined competitors.
The next mid-engine American Sports Car won’t be made by Ford or Fiat Chrysler, as it turns out. On the other hand, Chevrolet has announced that the 2023 Chevrolet Camaro will be center-engined.
That isn’t a denial, but neither is it the final nail in the Camaro’s coffin. Future sales appear to be limited; deliveries of the sixth-generation Camaro have consistently declined since its introduction in 2016, with just over 51,000 finding homes in 2018.
It was the lowest sales year since the Camaro’s comeback in 2009. The first 3 months of 2019 are only marginally better. An unsatisfactory 2019 facelift is to blame, and to Chevrolet’s credit, a new facelift for 2020 restores the car’s more classic appearance.
According to Muscle Cars and Trucks research, the Camaro chassis is also divided by the now-defunct Cadillac ATS and CTS.
That’s not to say the next-generation Camaro won’t use a different platform. Still, the story also mentions the Camaro Team members who have been assigned to other projects by GM. When you add it all together, there’s a solid argument to be made for cancellation claims.
2023 Chevy Camaro Engine
Okay, before you start whining, the Camaro SS and LT1 do, in fact, already come with a 6.2-liter V8 borrowed from the Corvette.
That is the Corvette Stingray and Grand Sport from the C7 generation.
(For the record, that engine is code-named LT1 internally at GM and by fanboys.)
According to GM Authority, Chevrolet will replace the Camaro SS and LT1 models for the 2023 model year with the LT2 V8 found in the C8 Corvette — internally known as LT2 — which produces 490 horsepower and 465 lb-ft of torque.
Those figures would offer the ‘Maro a respectable late-life power boost over its current 455 horsepower and 455 pound-feet of torque. Perhaps more importantly, from a business standpoint, the LT2 emits fewer pollutants than the LT1.
Still, as GM Authority points out, it’s not a given; according to their sources, GM has already redirected all design and construction resources previously assigned to the Camaro, which would make adapting the LT2 — which, for example, has only been mated to a Corvette’s eight-speed dual-clutch transmission — difficult.
Still, we can’t help but to hope that the Camaro has one more surprise in store for us before it becomes the inevitable electric crossover.
2023 Chevy Camaro Release Date
Muscle car fans may be disappointed by the loss of the V8. Still, with speculations pointing to an all-electric Camaro by 2023, we believe this mid-engined car is a better option.
The Camaro is expected to be thinner and lighter than the Corvette. It may even provide manual transmission options, unlike its older sibling.
