GM Says Goodbye to the 5th Gen Camaro with the 2015 Commemorative Edition
The 5th generation Chevrolet Camaro was introduced for the 2010 model year, after a seven year hiatus in production for the GM muscle car. Since returning, the new Camaro has been incredibly popular, beating both the Ford Mustang and the Dodge Challenger in sales every year since being introduced…and it appears as though it will outsell the Ford this year as well.
2015 marks the final model year for the current generation Chevrolet Camaro so as they have done in the past, General Motors will offer up a special edition package to celebrate the end of a great run and the beginning of what likely be another popular generation of the Camaro. That special edition – the 2015 Chevrolet Camaro Commemorative Edition will be formally introduced later this week at the 2014 SEMA Show in Las Vegas.
"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 Chevrolet Camaro Commemorative Edition
The 2015 Chevrolet Camaro Commemorative Edition is available in either 2LT or 2SS trim and in either coupe or convertible form. The package begins with the RS package and adds unique 20 inch wheels, a package specific body stripe that runs across the front end and down the sides of the car, a body color front splitter, a ZL1 rear spoiler and package specific fender badgers. The Commemorative Edition is available in five different schemes - Black with a Cyber Gray stripe, Silver Ice Metallic with a Cyber Gray stripe, Summit White with a silver stripe, Ashen Gray Metallic with a silver stripe and Red Hot with a black stripe. All SS models get a body colored hood insert.
On the inside, whether the buyer picks a coupe or convertible, V6 or V8, the 2015 Commemorative Edition 2015 Camaro comes with a new Adrenaline Red interior that is only offered on this special edition. This package includes striking adrenaline red and black leather seating surfaces, adrenaline red instrument panel insert and red stitching on the black leather portion of the seats, the flat bottomed steering wheel, the shift knob, the shift boot, the door trim armrests and the center console armrest.
11th Special Edition 5th Gen Camaro
The 2015 Chevrolet Camaro Commemorative Edition arrives in the final year as the 11th special edition package in the 6 year run of the 5th generation Camaro, after 2014 was the only model year devoid of a unique special edition package.
2010 - Camaro buyers could pick the Transformers Edition or the Indy Pace Car Edition.
2011 - The Camaro got another Indy Pace Car Edition, the Neiman Marcus Edition and the Camaro Synergy Series.
2012 - The Transformers Edition returned, along with a new Camaro Synergy Series and the 45th Anniversary Edition
2013 – The Camaro Dusk was joined by the Hot Wheels Edition Camaro.
2014 – No special edition packages
2015 – Commemorative Edition
Of course, in addition to these special edition packages above, the 5th generation Camaro has come in LS, LT, SS, 1LE, Z/28, ZL1 and COPO form – all of which helped the Chevrolet Camaro lead the muscle car segment in sales every year since 2010.
