The Chevrolet Camaro was first introduced in 1966, and since its introduction, has become an icon in the sports car industry. Spanning nearly five decades, each new generation of the Camaro brings with it updated design elements, advanced technologies, and new levels of luxury and refinement. As we prepare for the all-new sixth generation Camaro, we thought we’d share our five favorite iconic Chevrolet Camaros.
- The original 1967 Camaro. The Camaro that started it all holds a special place in the hearts of many auto enthusiasts. Its vintage good looks were exceptionally elegant for the time, and it offered a whopping 81 factory options and 41 dealer accessories, making it possible for buyers to create a nearly-custom Camaro.
- 1969 Camaro ZL-1. Many Camaro enthusiasts agree that the 1969 Camaro ZL-1 is the most exotic Camaro of all time, and for a long time, it was also the most powerful. The ZL-1 won the 1971 American Hot Rod Association Pro Stock championship, proving just how powerful this model was.
- 1988-1992 Camaro 1LE. Daring to be different, the late 80s brought with it the third generation Camaro. The race-track capable Camaro Z28 1LE was offered from 1988 to 1992, and delivered fun-to-drive performance and head-turning style.
- 1998-2002 Camaro SS. Delivering sleek looks, an affordable price tag, and impressive performance, the fourth generation Camaro was a top choice in its segment.
- 2014 Camaro Z/28. More powerful and bold than any version before it, the 2014 Camaro Z/28 is the culmination of years’ worth of improvements.
Moving forward, the upcoming sixth generation Camaro’s design is reminiscent of the original, delivering a modern take on a much-loved icon. More powerful, mare luxurious, and more capable than ever before, the 2016 Camaro promises to earn a spot on our ‘favorites’ list.
