2025 will host a very different muscle car landscape. Gone are two of the modern mainstays: the Dodge Challenger and the Chevrolet Camaro. However, before the 2024 Chevrolet Camaro rides off into the sunset, it leaves a lasting impact on pony car fans everywhere.

The 2024 Camaro will be Chevrolet’s last pony car of its kind

Chevrolet announced that it would discontinue the Camaro after the 2024 model year. It’s a move that leaves the Ford Mustang, which just entered its seventh generation, as the sole pony car in the domestic market.

However, the sixth-generation Chevrolet Camaro continues to make an impact even with the news of its incipient discontinuation. For starters, the 2024 model undercuts the price points of directly comparable Mustangs. For instance, the 2024 Ford Mustang GT starts at around $43,305, nearly $3,000 more than a comparable V8-powered Camaro LT1.

What’s more, the 2024 model will host a blacked-out Collector’s Edition on the standard vehicle as well as the corner-consuming ZL1. The Collector’s Edition will commemorate the end of the sixth-generation pony car’s run, which started in 2016.

Of course, a handful of accessibly-priced pony cars and a collectible commemorative edition are only part of the Camaro’s formula. Enter the ZL1, a supercharged punctuation mark on the statement that muscle cars needn’t be lazy lumps. Sure, 650 horsepower and the same number in torque is nothing to dismiss. 

However, the ZL1 1LE also put the Camaro’s name on the performance car radar. Specifically, a sixth-gen 1LE lapped the famed Nürburgring in 7:16.04, making it one of the fastest American cars to take on the “Green Hell.” 

The next-generation Camaro might be an SUV or electrified sedan

While the sixth-generation Chevrolet Camaro comes to an end after 2024, the nameplate isn’t dead. No, Chevrolet and GM are reportedly prepping an SUV variation of the storied model for future production.

Furthermore, Car and Driver suggests that the Camaro nameplate may go on to become a Chevrolet subbrand, not unlike Dodge and RAM. We could see an electric sedan or sports car with a “Camaro by Chevrolet” badge.
