An internal GM memo announced that the sixth-generation Camaro will be built in Michigan. These is good news in so much as that it means the Camaro is going to continue to be built after the fifth-gen's lifespan is over. The Camaro has been the best-selling car in the ponycar segment since its introduction in 2009 as a 2010 model.
From the memo: Today, GM announced that production of the next-generation Camaro will move from Oshawa Assembly to Lansing, Mich. This will inevitably raise some questions and speculation about what the announcement means for the future of Camaro.
For now, we can tell you that it does mean Chevrolet is committed to the Camaro, and we are already planning for the arrival of the sixth-generation car. It does not mean we are ready to announce the timing of the next-generation, or to confirm any details about a future Camaro.
Introduced as a 2010 model year, the fifth-generation Camaro still continues to be a success thanks to fans like you -- and we are not done yet. This year alone, we launched the Camaro ZL1 coupe and convertible, the Camaro 1LE, and introduced the Camaro Hot Wheels edition. We still have more news to come, and expect the fifth-generation Camaro, built by the team in Oshawa, will continue to bring new people to the Camaro community.
Thanks for your support, and we look forward to sharing more Camaro news with you in the future.
