Camaro Show #123 – New Camaro Build Options Coming

New Camaro Build Options Coming

We have spent the last couple of weeks talking about the State of the 6th Generation Camaro. From sales figures to what General Motors could do to “fix” the 6th Gen car. This week we have word that GM may be listening. At a press event here in Detroit this week, GM execs confirm they are looking at reconfiguring options for the Camaro. This could lower the price and be more competitive with Mustang and Challenger. We discuss.

Rick Hendrick, the owner of the Hendrick Motorsports NASCAR team, picked up his new 2018 Camaro ZL1 1LE right off the line. This is Vin#001 that we won in Auction with proceeds going to the United Way.

A new era in Chevrolet Motorsports starts today with the introduction of the Camaro ZL1 as the new race car for the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series.

Seven-time Cup champion Jimmie Johnson — driver of the #48 Lowe’s Chevrolet for Hendrick Motorsports — joined Mark Reuss, executive vice president of GM Global Product Development, to reveal the new race car at Chevrolet’s headquarters in Detroit.

“Chevrolet, Camaro, and ZL1 are all synonymous with winning, both on and off the track,” said Reuss. “We are thrilled to run Camaro in NASCAR next year, with the time-honored and track-tested ZL1 badge, and we’re just as excited for our drivers, teams, fans, and customers.”

The Camaro ZL1 will make its competition debut next February during Daytona Speedweeks, which kicks off the 2018 NASCAR season. It will join the Camaro SS, which has been Chevrolet’s entry in the NASCAR XFINITY Series since 2013.

We have 3 emails and 3 voicemails for this week. Please continue to give us a call and leave us a voicemail at 586-486-3182.
