Back in 1967, Chevrolet unveiled the first Camaro. When asked what the word Camaro meant, a representative responded: “A Camaro is a small, vicious animal that eats Mustangs.” Now in 2017, we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Camaro.
Before looking ahead, we need to pay respect to what came before. The Camaro wasn’t built in a generation – it evolved through six. Each innovation has been the starting point for the next.
When it first came out, the Camaro was fit for the times. 1967 was a time of active, youthful movement which was perfect for getting behind the wheel of the First Generation.
The Second Generation was the personification of its fans, sharing in creative passion; passion for performance and style. This passion stuck through every generation that followed.
The 80’s was an era of excess and with the Third Generation, the sky was the limit. This Camaro could go from the showroom to the drag strip.
The Fourth Generation was a little bit of everything. It was living on its legacy in a new era.
Then it was gone! But the true Camaro fans knew it wasn’t the end – this incredible sports car would be back one day. Next came the Fifth Generation; Chevrolet looked back to the first generation models for inspiration and took what worked well and spruced it up with a new contemporary design.
The Camaro has carved a distinctive place among American muscle cars with passionate owners who appreciate engine horsepower and impressive handling.
Now it’s time for the Sixth Generation; tying in key, track-related Camaro features from the past and bringing them into the current day, making it leaner, stronger, and faster – because there is no feeling like driving a Camaro. The 50th Anniversary Edition honors the distinctive looks and performance that have always set the Camaro apart. It is now available in both Coupe and Convertible 2LT and 2SS models.
