The new 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport is still making us giddy. But Chevy isn’t content to rest on its laurels. It’s turning its attention to a 50th anniversary edition Camaro.
The Camaro will celebrate 50 years on the road on September 26th. The 2017 50th Camaro special edition package will be available on coupes and convertibles with the 2SS trim or the 2 LT which also includes the RS appearance package.
The muscle car will stand out from the crowd in a dark gray hue with orange stripes on the hood. It also comes a front splitter and mesh grille with satin chrome trim. There is also a matching shade for the brake calipers. Oh, and the droptop models come with a black roof.
Right now, Chevy isn’t showing off the interior, but we know it will get black leather seats with suede inserts and orange stitching. Of course, you can’t have a 50th edition without special logos all over the place, like on the instrument panel, seatbacks and steering wheel. Twenty-inch wheels also come with 50th anniversary badged caps.
No pricing info is on the 50th Anniversary Camaro is available yet, but the 50th Anniversary model goes on sale this summer.
Chevy completely redesigned the sixth-generation Camaro for 2016. But it hasn’t exactly overtaken the Ford Mustang in the sales department like GM thought it might. The Mustang outsold the Camaro in 2015 and it’s doing the same so far in 2016.
Nonetheless, Ford recently decided to speed up plans for its next Mustang. A redesigned version was due out in 2022, but now it’s been pushed up to 2020. The last all-new Mustang was just introduced in 2014.
