Final Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 LT4 Engine Leaves Bowling Green Plant

Farewell, ZL1 Camaro

  • Last Camaro-bound LT4 has been built and shipped

  • Chevrolet Camaro dead after 2024


The current-generation Chevrolet Camaro is almost dead, and the Bowling Green Performance Build Center is showing just how close. With the last Camaro ZL1 engine leaving the factory last week.

Every one of the 650 hp 6.2L supercharged LT4 V8 engines was hand-assembled at the Bowling Green facility before being sent off to get installed into a new Camaro ZL1. The engine originally powered the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 before also being used in the Cadillac CTS-V, Escalade-V, and others.

The end of an era!

A pair of photos was put on Reddit last week (via CorvetteBlogger), showing Performance Center worker Billy Burke standing beside the final Camaro-bound LT4. Burke assembled that motor and his name will be on the engine build plaque in the vehicle. This means that at some point down the road, auction hunters will be looking for his name and the right VIN tag to prove that the car it went into was the last 2024 ZL1.

The entire Camaro line is set to end with the 2024 model year run. But, while Chevrolet hasn’t confirmed anything yet, we can’t image the nameplate going off into that good night. Expect something badged as a Camaro in the future, even if it is a Mustang Mach-E-like EV crossover.
