Gets outsold by the Mustang and Challenger, both of which are behind it in performance but more visually appealing to most..

All they needed to do is fix the front end!!! Then they could have sold a Camaro or two.

It was hideous. too much body excitement as the term was. Curves and bulges here and there. Too busy. The pixar front end. Then there is the interior and visibility issues. A mess

It sounds like moving away from the Alpha platform is what killed it... I honestly didn't see this coming, especially since the Corvette going mid-engine. I figured that Chevy would want to keep at least one front-engine performance vehicle in the fleet.

****UPDATES****

A new report alleged that the seventh-generation Chevrolet Camaro has been cancelled, but we have now received new intel indicating the car has actually just been delayed.

The report cited unnamed sources who said the seventh-generation Chevrolet Camaro has been shelved. It’s not that GM is abandoning the Camaro nameplate altogether, though, but has rather delayed the introduction of the seventh-gen car until further notice.

The good news is that the current version of the muscle coupe isn’t going anywhere soon, with production expected to last until 2023. That leaves room for another potential refresh after the recently introduced 2020 model year update, along with more model variants (ahem, Z/28, anyone?).

Dwindling sales and a shifting business strategy may have driven GM to reconsider its Camaro strategy. Not only is the Camaro losing the sales race to the Mustang and even the Challenger, it’s somewhat at odds with GM’s strategy to focus on trucks, crossovers, SUVs and hybrid/electric vehicles in the United States.

If the seventh-generation Camaro ended up getting the green light as previously planned, it would have likely ended up on the A2XX/Alpha 2 platform that underpins the new Cadillac CT5 and CT4 sport sedans, which is an evolution of the Camaro’s current platform

GM bailing on the Camaro would be one of the dumbest things GM done in a while... Whoever is in charge of designing the Camaro & giving it the final approval needs to be fired. Let whoever is in charge of the Corvette take over. The 5th gen was a huge success whether what people think about it. Came out with a bang. The 6th gen 2016-2018 Camaro looks bad *** & preforms like crazy. 2019- just fell flat on it's face & should be considered an abomination. But that shouldn't mean they just give up & throw in the white towel?

This is great news, and makes way more sense than just killing it all together. Thanks for posting!

Well, the war over whether the Camaro or the Mustang is a better car is still happening, and it looks like the Camaro still has what it takes. I really hope they don't kill it.

They really dropped the ball when they killed it off last time, I sure that cost them even more market share since you couldn't buy a GM pony for 8 years. I agree with Doggy they need to fire whoever let the current design to come to market. At least the 2020 version looks way better, I actually don't mind the 2019 in person but it is just not a photogenic car.

Maybe they should see hat people biggest gripes are for not buying and fix those issues but maybe that's too simple.

The problem was it wasn't a huge success, I like the look but I know many die hard Chevy guys that didn't and they decided to buy a truck or wait and see if something else came along and when it didn't they simply gave up. GM should have done more to make it look like the first gen, The Dodge Challenger was a hit because it looks a lot like a 70-74 Challenger. You can also throw in the fact that the younger crowd isn't into muscle cars like they used to be.
Silverado sale are nearly 600,000 units a year not counting the GMC Sierra while the Camaro is in the 60,000 to 80,000 range and the market is getting smaller as more and more people choose SUVs and Trucks and fuel efficient cars over muscle.

If you think the 6th Gen Z/28 is coming, I've got some bad news for you...

So what the hell is going on. First I hear the Camaro is ending then I hear it's on hold. Then I hear a Z28 coming out then its not?! Someone from GM needs to speak up & get their heads out of their asses & grow a pare of *****. Seriously a joke how this company is getting ran right now. They need to take notes from Dodge/Chrysler & how they're doing with the Challenger, Charger, & the Durango. The Blazer is cool & all but come on offer a AWD SS version. Then I heard they're making the CTS-V slow now?? CTS-V looks bad *** & is what Id consider a sleeper. But compared to the Charger & what it has to offer I'm in the Bay Area & I see them everywhere!

I just really like what Dodge is doing with their vehicles! They stepped up & grew a pair & gave us what we wanted. A bad *** vehicle & continue to do so

Read the R&T article.

I couldn't agree more with what they said.

They ask the question " how could a car this big be so tight inside?"

They hate the interior and ergonomics.
