First Generation

The first-generation Chevrolet Camaro is an American pony car introduced by Chevrolet in the fall of 1966 for the 1967 model year. It rode on a brand-new rear wheel drive GM F-body platform and was available as a 2-door, 2+2 seat, hardtop, and convertible. The F-body was shared with the Pontiac Firebird for all generations. A 230 cu in Chevrolet straight-6 was standard, with several Chevy V8s available as options.  The first-generation Camaro was built through the 1969 model year.

Second Generation

The second generation of Chevrolet Camaro debuted for the 1970 model year. This new generation of Camaro continued the manufacturing techniques established by its predecessor, but was an entirely new car featuring much more rounded styling. The second generation was only offered in a two door coupe body style, dropping the convertible offered for the First Generation Camaro.  On top of the base model, the ‘RS’ appearance package, ‘SS’ performance package, and ’Z28’ Special Performance Package were offered. Chevrolet built the second generation until 1981, when it was replaced by the Third Generation Camaro.

Third Generation

The “Third Generation” of the Chevrolet Camaro F-car was introduced in 1982 and had a production run which lasted an entire decade to 1992. The “Third Gen Camaro” went through various trim, facia, suspension and wheel changes as well as engine options. All were of a steel unibody, hatchback design. Various models included the Berlinetta, RS (Rally Sport), Z28 and IROC. The Third Generation Camaro was introduced and chosen to be the Indy 500 pace car. The Camaro became Motor Trend magazine’s Car of the Year for 1982.

Fourth Generation

The fourth generation of the Camaro was introduced in January 1993, as a 1993 model. The fourth-generation Chevrolet Camaro was produced by General Motors for the 1993 through 2002. General Motors discontinued production of the fourth generation of the Camaro due to slow sales, a deteriorated sports coupé market, and plant overcapacity.

Fifth Generation

The fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro is a pony car that was manufactured by American automobile manufacturer Chevrolet from 2010 to 2015 model years. It is the fifth distinct generation of the muscle/pony car to be produced since its original introduction in 1967.

Sixth Generation

The sixth-generation Chevrolet Camaro is an American pony car. Produced by automobile manufacturer Chevrolet, it was first introduced to the public on May 16, 2015. Sales started in 2015 for the 2016 model year. The Camaro now utilizes the GM Alpha platform shared with the Cadillac ATS and CTS and features MacPherson struts in front, rather than the former multi-link setup. General Motors claims that 70 percent of architectural components in the new Camaro are unique to the car.
