The Australian-developed and Holden Commodore-based 5th-generation Chevrolet Camaro has been one of the American brand’s runaway success, with 500,000 sold to date since it hit the market in late 2009.
It is America’s best-selling performance car in five consecutive years, with 63 per cent of retail buyers new to GM.
Chevrolet is celebrating the enviable milestone by releasing a teaser video of the next-generation Camaro.
Despite wearing full camouflage, its obvious the 6th-generation model will get an evolutionary styling with slimmer headlights and grille and similar proportions. However, the new model is expected to shave a substantial amount of it, and like the recently launched Ford Mustang, could possibly get a turbocharge four-cylinder engine for the entry-level model.
It isn’t clear at this stage whether Chevrolet will build the next-generation model in right-hand-drive, which would dictate its availability in Australia.
The production model is expected to debut at the 2015 New York Auto Show in April.
