Chevy slaps a discount on its Camaro Z/28 ahead of the 2016 Camaro’s production

Chevy has just revealed its 2016 model year Camaro, a significant redesign inside and out, and now the automaker is looking to clean out some of its current inventory to make way for the new model.

As a result, for those of you who have just purchased a 2014 or 2015 Camaro Z/28, we have some unfortunate news: you left some money on the table.

Chevy has announced a pair of discounts for the Z/28 that have a short effective period. If you hurry on over to your local Chevy dealer before June 1st, providing your local dealer stocks the Camaro Z/28, you’ll be offered $2,000 off the price of the 2015 Z/28, or $4,000 off the sticker of the 2014 Z/28.

While these aren’t massive discounts, they dip the price of the 2015 Camaro Z/28 to $70,305 and the 2014’s price to $68,305. For that chunk of change, you’re buying a 300-pound weight reduction compared to the ZL1, a 505 horsepower 7.0 liter V8, a retuned suspension, massive Brembo brakes, and wide-as-yo-mamma-fat-jokes 305 section tires at all four corners.

Production of the fifth generation Camaro ends on November 20th at the Oshawa factory in Ontario, Canada while the sixth generation will begin production at GM’s Lansing Grand River factory in Michigan.

Sales of the 2016 model year Camaro will begin at the end of the year.

While a 2016 Camaro Z/28 hasn’t been announced, the hottest 2016 Camaro will be the SS, featuring a 6.2 liter LT1 V8 making 455 hp and 445 pound-feet of torque – the same as the C7 Stingray. The new Camaro also gets a revised suspension, Magnetic Ride Control, active exhaust, and weighs 200 pounds less than the current generation.

As the pony car wars escalate, no doubt Chevy will respond to Ford’s new Shelby GT350R with an updated Z/28. Even before then, a shootout is in order to see if the Shelby’s flat-plane crank V8 and carbon fiber bits best the Z/28’s massive levels of grip and incredible brakes.
