The curtain is drawing to a close for one of Chevrolet’s most iconic and beloved nameplates,the Camaro.

The Covenant Car Company Inc. announced in March 2023 that the sixth-generation Camaro would become the final edition of this iconic American muscle car, with the very last Camaro scheduled to roll off the assembly line in January 2024.

In the Philippines, the Camaro has not only become a mainstay among sports car enthusiasts but has also garnered a strong following for its power, agility, and striking presence.

The announcement has caused a stir in car circles, fueling excitement among Filipinos keen on owning what is now regarded as the “last Camaro.”

With the sixth-generation Camaro notching its place in motoring history, the importance of this moment has not been lost on Chevrolet Philippines.

In recognizing the car’s status as a collector’s item, the company has made a final call to own this symbol of American muscle, noting that the Philippine market will receive the last batch of this legendary icon.

The vehicle retails for an SRP of P4,266,888, and Chevrolet Philippines has opened reservations in all 19 dealerships nationwide for this soon-to-be classic.

The Camaro’s journey began as a response to public demand for Chevrolet to produce a solid street machine capable of fierce racetrack performance. Unveiled in 1967, the first Camaro came as a two-door coupe with V6 and V8 engine options, quickly winning over the motoring public.

Through various iterations, the Camaro has forged a legacy, with performance and style at its core. Its impact extends beyond the racing world where Chevrolet campaigns the sixth-generation in series like NASCAR, IMSA, SRO Motorsports Group, NHRA and Supercars Championship.

Additionally, the Camaro has transcended automotive culture to become a pop culture icon. It has starred in numerous TV programs, movies, and music videos, from the 1969 Camaro SS Convertible in “Charlie’s Angels” to the Camaro models featured as “Bumblebee” in the Transformers movie series.

The sixth-generation Camaro continues the lineage with a robust performance profile and an unmistakable design. With a sculpted hood, distinct fascia, muscular flanks, and 5-spoke 20-inch machined wheels, it possesses an imposing character.

At its heart lies a 2.0L Turbo Intercooled All-Aluminum engine delivering 275 hp and 398 Nm of torque. Paired with an 8-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission and a high-performance Brembo Brake package, it promises a spirited yet confident drive.

Inside, the Camaro offers a refined experience, boasting sport bucket seats, an 8-inch driver information center, an 8-inch MyLink Infotainment System with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and various advanced safety features like the StabiliTrak System, ABS, EBD, Lane Change Alert, and more.

Chevrolet also assures each vehicle with five-year warranty coverage, 24/7 roadside assistance for three years, and access to the 24/7 Chevy Hotline for all vehicle service and ownership needs.

The farewell of the Chevrolet Camaro is a significant moment in automotive history, marking the end of an era for a car that has resonated with enthusiasts for decades.

As Chevrolet Philippines prepares for the final flock of this legendary icon, it is an opportune time for admirers to seize the opportunity to own a piece of this automotive legacy.

The sixth-generation Camaro stands as a testament to Chevrolet’s commitment to innovation, performance, and style, and its departure will undoubtedly leave a void in the hearts of many. The final Camaro serves as a reminder of the car’s impactful journey and a nod to the changing tides of the automotive industry.
