It’s no shock to car enthusiasts that General Motors is phasing out its last muscle car coupe and convertible (no, the C8 Corvette is not a muscle car). However, if you want a Chevrolet Camaro of your own, the 2022, 2023, and possibly 2024 model years can oblige. The 2022 Chevrolet Camaro offers everything from a competitive sports car entry point to the razor-sharp track day weapon, the Camaro ZL1. So, how much is a fully-loaded 2022 Chevrolet Camaro, and which trims should you consider?

How much is a fully loaded 2022 Camaro?

The top-trim 2022 Chevrolet Camaro is the ZL1, a track star thoroughbred with a supercharged 6.2L LT4 V8 engine and race-ready features like adaptive dampers, Brembo brakes, and a commanding rear wing. However, the mad mutation of the Camaro line demands a premium. The coupe starts at $66,045, and the convertible (why bother, right?) starts at $71,895.

To take the lunatic further, Chevrolet offers a $7,500 1LE track package for those who want a fully loaded 2022 Chevrolet Camaro. Moreover, the bonkers track-pack might be worth every penny; Car and Driver says an earlier variation of the ZL1 1LE beat the non-1LE around the Nürburgring Nordschleife by a full 13 seconds.

What is the cheapest 2022 Chevrolet Camaro?

The cheapest 2022 Chevrolet Camaro in the lineup is the 1LS, which starts at around $26,195. The 1LS is standard with a turbocharged four-cylinder engine and a six-speed manual transmission. However, many higher trims before the LT1 offer an optional 335-horsepower 3.6L V6 engine that livens the entry-level Camaros more than the comparatively anemic four-cylinder powerplant.

However, if you want a V8-powered Camaro coupe or convertible, the most budget-friendly option is the LT1, with a naturally aspirated 455-horsepower V8 engine. A 2022 Chevrolet Camaro LT1 starts at $35,395, making it much cheaper than a comparable 2022 Ford Mustang GT.

Which trim is the fastest?

It’s no surprise that the 2022 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 is the fastest of the pony cars in Chevy’s stable. The 650-horsepower brute isn’t just a track-toy; it has drag strip credentials, too. The last Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 that Car and Driver tested dispatched a run to 60 mph in just 3.4 seconds and a quarter-mile sprint in 11.5 seconds. Not bad for a muscle car that can manage a 1.17-g result in skidpad handling tests.

Should you consider a 2022 Chevrolet Camaro?

If you want a fully loaded 2022 Chevrolet Camaro with a V8, the 1SS and 2SS trims are challenging to upstage. Moreover, with the upcoming discontinuation of the Chevy Camaro, the 2022 model year will be one of the last gas-powered pony cars the marque ever produces. That’s a bittersweet bit of news, but the Camaro will almost certainly give way to an EV muscle car, like what Dodge is doing with the upcoming Charger Daytona SRT EV.

Furthermore, the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE is one of the few supercar-fighting muscle cars and represents a special chapter for Chevrolet. Scroll down to the following article to read more about muscle cars!
