Sales of the sports Chevy Camaro will stop after 2023?June 26, 2019
The American concern GM, which includes Chevy, has not yet confirmed or denied the inevitable demise of the Camaro sports model.
Could Chevy be on the verge of ridding its model range of a sporty Camaro again? A new report from a foreign publication claims that this may well happen after 2023, when the current sixth generation of the model should end its life cycle. The sources of this information are “trusted people from General Motors”. It is reported that the next generation Camaro project will be suspended without a visible future after 2023. These sources also allegedly say that the product name will most likely not be used anymore.
The future of the model looks bleak; shipments of the sixth generation Camaro have steadily declined since its introduction in 2016, according to the results of 2018, less than 51,000 units of this model were sold.
This is the lowest year of sales since the Camaro revival in 2009, and the performance of the first three months of 2019 is only slightly better. This may be to blame for the ambiguous facelift in 2019.
But on the other hand, things can change after another facelift – the coupe 2020 model year will get a more traditional look of the front part of the car. In addition, it is worth noting that sales of one of the direct competitors – the Ford Mustang in recent years are declining, although not so much. So it is quite possible that if sales of the Camaro 2020 model year will increase, then the model will be left alone.
