5th-Generation Chevy Camaro Waves Goodbye With New Commemorative Edition

It’s hard to believe that the current Chevy Camaro has been with us for only five years. Yet it’s sold over 400,000 copies, making it the current best-selling American performance car. But, alas, this Bow-Tie BadBoy is about to be replaced by a smaller 6th-gen Camaro in 2016. It is going out with a bang though. So meet the last 5th-generation Camaro epecial edition, the 2015 Chevy Camaro Commemorative Edition.

Most GM final editions usually consist of special color combos, lots of badges, and not much else. The 2015 Chevy Camaro Commemorative Edition doesn’t stray far from this formula, but it does pair some extra equipment with that unique side stripe. There’s a body-color front splitter, the rear wing from a Camaro ZL1, and unique 20-inch wheels, accented by a red stripe around the edge. Special badges are glued to the front fenders, and the HID headlights/LED tail lights from the RS package are included with the package.

The interior of the 2015 Chevy Camaro Commemorative Edition will have you seeing red... literally. The Camaro byebye edition gets Adrenaline Red leather seat inserts, red stitching details all over the cabin, a red dash insert, and a flat-bottom steering wheel.

As you might have guessed by now, this is only a trim package. Buyers don’t get any sort of performance enhancements. But they aren’t really necessary. The 2015 Chevy Camaro Commemorative Edition can be a V6-powered 2LT coupe/convertible, or a V8-powered 2SS coupe/convertible. The V6 Camaro makes 323hp, and gets 30 mpg on the highway, while the Camaro SS gets a 426hp 6.2L V8, which is enough to launch it to 60 mph in just 4.7 seconds. The Commemorative Edition Camaro might just be a cynical marketing exercise, but the car it’s based on is actually good enough to deliver the thrills.
