The Chevrolet Camaro is an iconic American muscle car, and it’s often seen as a beautifully made car. Not only that, but since it’s a muscle car, the Camaro is also very powerful, and it’s often used in races too. That said, with the 2021 Chevy Camaro, Chevy’s adding a new option to make your Camaro stand out.
A quick look at the 2021 Chevy Camaro
The Chevy Camaro is still a muscle car, and as such, it still packs quite a punch. This is arguably the most important aspect of any muscle car, as a muscle car without muscle is just a car. As a result, Car and Driver was impressed by the Camaro’s engine options, as they did live up to the task of giving the Camaro a lot of power.
Obviously, for customers with a lot of money to spend, the 2021 Camaro ZL1 exists. It boasts a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 that gets a staggering 650 hp. However, the 2021 Camaro ZL1 starts at $65,000, so it’s out of reach for most customers.
With that said, Car and Driver wrote that the regular Camaro is still a powerful car, even with its standard engine. At $26,000, the standard 2021 Camaro comes with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that gets 275 hp. Car and Driver thought that this standard engine was “surprisingly quick,” but of course, Chevy offers more powerful options, too. For example, the LT1 trim starts at $35,000, and it’ll come with a 6.2-liter V8 that gets 455 hp.
How you can make your 2021 Chevy Camaro stand out
While the Chevrolet Camaro’s muscle is one of the main selling points behind the car, Chevy does offer options for customers that’ll allow them to spruce up their Camaro without breaking the bank. These personalization options will allow customers who can’t afford to add a bigger engine to their Camaro to turn heads without forcing customers to spend a lot of money to upgrade the Camaro’s engine.
For example, as MotorTrend reported, the 2021 Camaro will have a brand-new paint option, and it’ll be replacing the old Garnet Red paint option. Instead of Garnet Red, the 2021 Camaro can now get the Wild Cherry Tintcoat paint job. Like its name implies, this paint job will make your Camaro look cherry red, but there’s more.
The Cherry Red packages on the 2021 Chevrolet Camaro
While Chevy won’t paint the base Camaro or the ZL1 Cherry Red, every other trim of the Camaro can be painted Cherry Red. This means that the cheapest Camaro that can be painted Cherry Red will be the LT trim, and that trim starts at about $26,500. For the LT trim, as well as the LZ trim, Chevy also offers the Wild Cherry Design Package 1.
This design package will cost about $2,150, and it’ll add a few aesthetic changes to the interior and exterior of the Camaro. For example, it’ll give it specially forged aluminum wheels that’ll have the Camaro shield as the center cap. Furthermore, it’ll improve the looks of the Camaro’s fender, and it’ll also add special Camaro floor mats among other things.
For the more expensive trim levels of the Camaro, Chevy offers the Wild Cherry Design Package 2. This package costs about $5,600, according to MotorTrend, and it’ll add even more features on top of what’s already offered on the first Wild Cherry Design package. Some of these additional features include a carbon fiber insert for the Camaro’s fuel door, a black suede interior trim, and a center stripe that can be in either black or silver.
