2015 Camaro Commemorative Edition Debuts at SEMA

Sun, Nov 2 2014  - LAS VEGAS – Chevrolet revealed the 2015 Camaro Commemorative Edition at the SEMA Show today. The special edition celebrates the success of the fifth-generation Camaro – which is on track to be America’s best-selling performance car for five consecutive years – and marks the final year for the fifth generation. The special edition goes on sale this spring.

More than 400,000 fifth-generation Camaros have been sold since April 2009. Since then, Camaro has been America’s best-selling performance car for four consecutive years. Camaro sales for the first 10 months of 2014 are up 8 percent over the same period a year ago, and Camaro currently leads Mustang by 10,000 sales – putting Camaro on track to be America’s favorite performance car for a fifth consecutive year.

“The fifth-generation Camaro was a success from the moment it was introduced, in attracting both long-time Camaro fans and new buyers who have never owned a Chevrolet,” said Todd Christensen, Camaro Marketing Manager. “We wanted to create a special edition Camaro that celebrates that success as the fifth generation comes to a close as the end of the model year.”

The 2015 Camaro Commemorative Special Edition is available on 2LT and 2SS coupes and convertibles and includes the RS package.

The exterior features of the Commemorative Edition include unique 20-inch wheels; exclusive stripe; body-color front splitter; ZL1 rear spoiler; and Commemorative Edition fender emblems.

Five exterior color combinations are available: Black with Cyber Gray stripe, Silver Ice Metallic with Cyber Gray stripe, Summit White with silver stripe, Ashen Gray Metallic with silver stripe and Red Hot with black stripe. SS models receive a body-color hood insert.

The new Adrenaline Red interior, only offered on the Commemorative Edition, features adrenaline red and black leather seating surfaces, adrenaline red instrument panel insert and red stitching on the seats, steering wheel, shift knob, shift boot, door trim armrest and center console lid. Additional details exclusive to the Commemorative Edition include a leather-wrapped, flat-bottom steering wheel and Commemorative Edition sill plates.

Fifth-generation Camaro special editions

The Commemorative Edition builds on the fifth-generation Camaro’s legacy of uniquely equipped, limited-run models with custom-inspired exterior and interior appointments. Previous special editions included:

  • Camaro Transformers (2010 and 2012)
  • Camaro Indy Pace Car (2010 and 2011)
  • Camaro Synergy Series (2011)
  • Camaro Neiman Marcus Edition (2011)
  • Camaro Synergy Series (2012)
  • Camaro 45th Anniversary (2012)
  • Camaro Dusk (2013)
  • Camaro Hot Wheels Edition (2013).

Since its introduction, the Camaro line has expanded to nine distinct models:

The 323-horsepower V-6-powered LS coupe and LT coupe and convertible – including the 2LS with an EPA-rated 30 mpg on the highway – which match performance with efficiency.

The SS coupe and convertible come with Chevy’s legendary small-block V-8, featuring a 6.2L engine delivering up to 426 horsepower and 0-60 acceleration 4.7 seconds.

The road-racing-inspired Camaro 1LE performance package for SS coupe (manual transmission only), with unique gearing, suspension tuning and tires that make it capable of more than 1 g of lateral acceleration.

The Camaro ZL1 (coupe and convertible), which is at home on the race track, the drag strip or daily commuting. It features a supercharged 6.2L V-8 with 580 horsepower and 556 lb-ft of torque – making the ZL1 the most powerful Camaro ever from Chevrolet. It is also the most technologically advanced, with standard Magnetic Ride Control and, on coupe models, Performance Traction Management.

The Camaro Z/28 – the most track-capable Camaro ever. It features exterior elements designed like a race car to produce downforce that presses the car against the track for greater grip – up to 1.08 g in cornering acceleration – and faster lap times. Motor Trend named it their Best Driver’s Car for 2014.   
Chevrolet has also offered the COPO Camaro since 2012, a hand-built race car designed exclusively for drag racing. It’s the first purpose-built Camaro race car from Chevy and the quickest Camaro ever from the factory. Only 69 were built in 2012, 2013 and 2014, with 69 planned for 2015.

Camaro stop delivery order for ignition key issue

GM issued a Stop Delivery Order to all GM dealers yesterday, June 12, 2014. Apparently this ignition key issue impacts all 2010-2014 Chevrolet Camaro models on their lots. 

Maybe GM should use the push button start on more cars like the Camaro?

Update 6/14/14

GM has issued a recall for all 2010-2014 Camaro models (roughly 500,000 units). This appears to be a precautionary decision to prevent any injuries or accidents that could potentially result.  We've driven Camaros, one would need to TRY to have any part of their body hit the swtichblade key assembly. Many other Camaro owners have posted images and videos of their Camaro online showing this same thing.

GM has informed the media that this is unrelated to the earlier recall involving Chevy Cobalt and similar vehicles. The ignition system meets all GM safety engineering specifications.

We are hearing mixed reports on a fix. One is GM replacing the ignition cylinder in the vehicle steering column allowing users to retain their original 'switch blade' design key fob / key assembly.  The other option is GM replacing the switch blade assembly with a more traditional key with the key fob featured built into the head of the key itself, this would eliminate the moving/swivel parts.

Stay tuned for more developments as they are released.

Below is the GM STOP order shared online this week.

Update 6/25/14

A Chevy dealer posted the following key configuration online today. Have you had your key replaced yet? Let us know about your experience.

Problem with LSA superchargers?

According to General Motors, the Eaton supercharger on the 6.2l LSA motors found in the 2009 - 2013 Cadillac CTS-V and the 2012 - 2013 Camaro ZL1 models may not function properly, causing the unit to develop a noticeable rattle noise at idle. The noise will normally go away when the engine revs start to rise, but the problem, if left unresolved, may lead to contamination of the internal shaft bearing grease and cause the bearing to squeal over time. This could lead to the bearing overheating, which in turn could cause the engine to seize or simply fail to start.

GM dealers will replace the supercharger at no charge. Vehicle owners will receive a Special Coverage Adjustment for the problem. This special coverage covers the condition described above for a period of 10 years or 120,000 miles, whichever occurs first, from the date the vehicle is sent in to receive the new supercharger, regardless of ownership.

2014 COPO Camaro and Weld Wheels

Chevrolet Performance’s COPO Camaro program returns for 2014 with another limited run of factory-produced race cars and a pair of new racing engine choices. GM made the announcement at SEMA 2013 in Las Vegas, NV. 

Looking to purchase one of the exclusive models? Visit for detalis.
Weld Racing confirmed recently that their forged wheel, which was shown on the concept vehicle at SEMA, will come as standard equipment on the 69 models built the 2014 model year. The wheels, of which full-scale production began back in March, are direct descendants of the revolutionary new Delta-1 drag racing wheels that Weld Racing developed and released for the Top Fuel Dragsters and Funny Cars, Pro Stockers, and Pro Modified cars, two years ago.

Serial number 1 of the limited-production run – the only one to be painted Ice Blue Metallic – was auctioned off for charity by Chevrolet Performance at Barrett-Jackson’s annual January event in Scottsdale, Ariz. The car sold for $700,000 with the proceeds going to charity.
From the GM Media Press Release:
Each COPO Camaro race car is built by hand starting with hardware from the General Motors Oshawa, Ontario assembly plant that manufactures regular-production Camaros, including the same body in white body shells (part number 19243374) racers can purchase from Chevrolet Performance, along with other COPO-specific parts, to build their own dedicated race car. Each production car is fitted with an NHRA-approved roll cage and other safety equipment, along with racing chassis and suspension components – including a unique solid rear axle system in place of a regular-production Camaro’s independent rear axle.
The newly designed racing engines include a revised version of the naturally aspirated 427 engine and supercharged version of the 350 engine introduced in 2013. It will feature a 2.9L Whipple screw-type supercharger. Naturally aspirated 350 and 396 engines are also available. Customers select the engine based on their intended NHRA racing class. They can also purchase all four engines, each serialized to match the car.
The 2014 COPO Camaro also includes new racing seats, updated graphics and a new, available wheel design.
“The COPO Camaro contingent was strong at the first Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals in 2013 and we expect an even larger turnout with the new cars in 2014,” said Campbell. “The new engines will make the racing more exciting and COPO drivers more competitive.”
Expanded COPO crate engine lineup
The same high-performance engines used in the COPO Camaro production race cars are available as crate engines for racers building their own Camaro race cars. Each is engineered for NHRA’s Stock Eliminator and Super Stock classes, offering sportsman racers a range of factory-developed-and-assembled racing engines.
The COPO crate engine family grows to five for 2014 and includes a naturally aspirated 427 7.0L engine, two 5.3L supercharged 327 engines – a new combination using a Whipple twin-screw 2.9L supercharger and the other using a 4.0L Whipple supercharger – and all-new 396-cubic-inch and 350-cubic-inch naturally aspirated engines. Each is assembled by hand at GM’s Wixom, Mich., racing engine shop. 
The 427, 396 and 350 engines are designed to cover NHRA’s Stock Eliminator classes from E to AA. Curb weight adjustments are the primary requirement for class qualification.
Chevrolet Performance engineers designed and tested the engines with the same methods used to develop production engines, ensuring their performance and durability. A Holley engine management system is included with each engine.
Genuine GM Accessories 88958767 COPO Camaro Build Book provides an insider’s look at the assembly of the production race cars through hundreds of color photos. Additionally, the book includes detailed specifications for NHRA classification and descriptions of the aftermarket parts and their manufacturers used for the production vehicles. Important start-up, warm-up and pre-/post-race procedures are also included as well as fluid and maintenance recommendations. The book is available from Chevrolet Performance retailers.
