Common Differences

1993

(http://www.classicchevyandcorvetteshow.com/93camaro2.jpg).

Introduction of the LT1, rated at 275 horsepower. M6 cars offered with either 3.23 or 2.73 rear end ratios due to the 2 different 6 speeds offered in that year. The unique transmission in 93 had a higher (numerically) 1st and 6th gear and GM offered 2.73's to conteract this. A4 cars came with the non computer controlled 700R4. They also had a lower torque capacity because of this. LT1's were ECM controlled rather then PCM, ran off of Speed Density, and were batch fire injected rather the sequential. They have a unique intake manifold casting due to their fuel rails.

1993 marked the introduction of the 4th generation Camaro. Available in two versions: the base coupe, and the Z28. The coupe has black "CAMARO" icons on the front fenders just behind the wheels. The L32 3.4L V6 powered the base Coupe. This is not the same 3.4L that powered the Lumina Z34's of the early '90s. The Z34's engine was an DOHC making around 200hp, compared to 160hp of the Camaro. The DOHC would have been nice and the potential was enormous, but at a 1/3 more cost GM opted to go with the OHV 3.4L. Another reason was that power output was was approaching the Z28's level!

The Z28 was powered by the LT1 5.7L V8 MFI making 275hp. The LT1 was 1st seen in the 1992 Corvette. The Z28's version is slightly de-tuned due to the more restrictive air flow and exhaust.

All Base coupes received body colored C-Panel (unless with T-Top's in which case both roof and c-panels would be black) and all Z28's received black C-panels no matter if equipped with T-Top's or not. All Camaro's had black side mirrors no matter what. All Base coupes received body-colored roofs unless ordered with T-Tops in which case the roof and c-panels would be black. All Z28's had black roofs no matter what. The Z28 had black "Z28" icons on the front fenders, replacing the "CAMARO" icons on the base coupe, and a "+Z28" icon under the right rear tail light.

Both Base Camaro's and Z28's received a new indicator lamp "Low Trac" in the left hand side of the instrument panel. This lamp lit up when ABS brakes were in effect due to low traction. However this is not to be confused as being "Traction Control" which was first introduced in the Camaro in 1995.

The 1993 Z28 was selected as the Indy 500 Pace Car, and came with a special black and white paint scheme with decals, all were t-tops and automatics. Only 645 replicas were produced.

The Coupe came standard with steel wheels and wheel covers. Optional 16" Aluminum alloy wheels were optional, but were standard on the Z28. Instrumentation had yellow lettering, while the window and climate controls were gray.

The base tires were the S-rated Eagle GA. All cars with these tires included a 105 mph speed governor. The Coupe only came with the GA, but the Z28 could be ordered with the Goodyear GS-C (QLC) Z-rated high performance tire, which did away with the speed limiter entirely, and also included the 155 mph speedometer.

Only 3,340 of 39,103 total cars were equipped with T-Tops. No convertibles as GM did not finish the final design in time for the 1993 model year.

Just 19 1LE (the so-called "factory race car" RPO option) cars were made this year.

Exterior colors available: Arctic White, Bright Red, Black, Bright Teal, Polo Green, Dark Gray-Green Metallic, Purple Pearl Metallic, Medium Patriot Red, & Medium Quasar Blue.

Interior colors available: Light Gray, Graphite and Tan. Cloth only. No leather surfaces were available.

1994

(http://www.dragtimes.com/images/5242-1994-Chevrolet-Camaro.jpg).

In 1994, the LT1 Camaro's received the 4L60E, an electronically controlled version of the 700R4. The new models began to use sequential fuel injection and the MAF sensors became PCM controlled.

Fuel injectors were upgraded from 22lb. to 24lb. GM changed from Speed Density to Mass Air Flow control. The EPROM computer chip was now soldered to the main computer board, preventing its removal. Heated 3 wire O2 sensors replaced the single wire.

The Corvette LT1 now benefit with SFI (Sequential fuel injection).

Convertibles were now available.

Instrumentation was changed to white, and the window and climate controls were changed to black.

The T56 6-speed transmission in the Z28's was revised with new gear ratios and also introduced CAGS, the skip-shift feature. The EPA made it necessary on all 6 speeds to meet emissions standards. Under light throttle it locks out second and third gears forcing you to go strait to fourth to maximize fuel efficiency. The only axle ratio available with the 6-speed was now a 3.42.

New Automatic transmission, the 4L60-E electronic unit.

Interior colors were Light Gray, Graphite, Tan, and Flame Red (Available in cloth only).

Leather interior was introduced late in the year, in graphite or tan.

All Camaro Base Coupe's received black side mirrors no matter what. All Camaro Z28 Coupe's received black side mirrors no matter what. All Base Coupes received body-colored C-panels, unless equipped with T-Top's (CC1) in which case both the Roof, and C-panels would be black. All Z28 Coupes received black colored C-panels no matter what. All Base coupes received a body-colored roof well unless equipped with T-Top's (CC1) in which case both the Roof, and C-panels would be black. All Z28 coupes received a black roof no matter if it had T-Tops or not.

1995

(http://srv2.lycoming.edu/~pelusoem/1995CamaroZ28.jpg).

Camaro returned in 1995 with the same lineup. A coupe and a convertible were offered in both the base and Z28 series.

The Buick 3800 Series II V6 (L36 3.8L) was introduced midyear, most were available only in California, eclipsing the 3.4L OHV. Z28's in California received dual catalytic converters (Right - under passenger side floor / Left - under left engine manifold), good for an additional 10 hp. Base Eagle GA tires were upgraded from S-rated to T-rated, and the speed limiter was raised from 105 to 115 mph.

The Eagle RSA (QFZ) all-season Z-rated tire was introduced and available on the Z28, in addition to the Eagle GS-C (QLC) high-performance Z-rated tire.

The black roof and mirrors on the Z28's could now be ordered in same body color for no additional charge (if customer selected CC1 T-Top's AND the RPO D82 Monochromatic Roof Paint). Base Coupe could also have the same treatment as long as it was also ordered with the CC1 T-Top's.

The "CAMARO" icons are no longer on base coupes.

Acceleration Slip Regulation (RPO NW9), commonly called traction control, became optional for Z28 coupes and convertibles. The interactive engine and brake system decreased wheel spin on slippery surfaces. A new all-season performance tire option (RPO QFZ) complemented ASR, but could be ordered with any Z28 model.

Exterior colors: Dark Gray-Green Metallic and Purple Pearl metallic dropped. Mystic Teal, Sebring Silver and Dark Purple Metallic introduced.

70 Camaro's were produced as Government vehicles (GAM).

310 were turned into Z28 Police cars (B4C). Introduction of the vented opti. V6 cars now offered with 3.8L and introduction of Dual Catalytic Converters (California Cars)

Completely new front end. Introduction of LS1, still retains Metal Gas Tank, PCM is unique to 98 cars only. Also introduction of completely new brake set-up as well as new aluminum drive shaft. 6 speeds gain new Slave and Master system and removable bell housing on automatics.

LS1 Gen III V8 engine rated at 305-hp replaces the LT1 in the Z28.

Camaro SS bumped up to 320hp, 327hp with SLP's exhaust system. The LS1 debuted in the 1997 Corvette, rated at 345hp. While they are the same engine, most people will tell you that the f-body version is under rated to make the Corvette look better. The camshaft in the Camaro and Firebird is actually a bit more aggresive than the Corvette. Larger brakes (11.8" front/11.9" rear) all around on the Z28, and V6 cars with the Y87 Performance Package option. It includes dual piston front calipers and electronic rear brake force distribution.

Camaro's received a new hood, light settings (headlights were now flush with the car rather than set inside headlight pockets) and nose, (nose now rounded rather than at a point) .primarily to accommodate the LS1 which is slightly taller than the LT1. It is suspiciously similar to that of a Chrysler Concorde, but no changes were made to the rear of the car.

The short-lived Camaro RS was dropped and replaced by the Sport Appearance Package which is now available on all models (basically just ground effects and rear spoiler lip).

New interior cloth on Camaro's: Dark Gray, Neutral and Red Accent.

Leather interior available in Dark Gray, Neutral and White.

Exterior colors: Navy Blue Metallic and Sport Gold Metallic added. The black roof returned to the Z28, but side mirrors could be ordered in the body color.

In 1998, the SS order code changed to WU8, an "in house" option. In 1996-1997, Z28s were built at Ste. Therese and converted to SS by SLP Engineering. Beginning in 1998, SS's were built at Ste. Therese and shipped to SLP in nearby LaSalle with a temporary hood. SLP added the new hood, spoiler and any SLP exclusive content. SS included a 320-hp LSI, composite hood with air induction, P275/40ZR17 tires, 17x9" specific wheels, 3" stainless exhaust tip, special suspension, and SS trim.

1999

(http://www.fvn.no/amcar/joyrides/camaro/99camaro.jpg)

Changes for 1999 include electronic throttle control.

Zexel Torsen differential replaces all limited-slip differential applications; traction control now available with 3800 V6 engine; Monsoon premium sound system available on convertibles; new oil life monitoring telltale in cluster; new electronic throttle control with 3800 V6 engine; increased fuel tank capacity.

Fuel tank upgraded from 15.5 gallons to 16.8, a non-metallic tank is now used.

A new engine oil-life monitor monitor which tracks engine rpm, coolant temperature, and driving time, then uses an algorithm to predict the oil's condition. When the system determines the oil needs to be serviced, an "oil change" light illuminates on the instrument panel.

V6 cars get traction control.

Exterior colors: Bright Purple Metallic, Cayenne Red Metallic, and Sport Gold Metalic dropped. However 5 coupe Camaro's were in fact painted Sport Gold. These were exclusively done for a special Days Inn promotion developed in 1998 when Sport Gold was a stock color.

Hugger Orange, Bright Blue Metallic, Light Pewter Metallic, Dark Amethyst Metallic, and Fern Green Metallic added.

The engine received smaller fuel injectors and a bracket, which mounted the ignition coils together, rather than having them all latched on separately.

Camaro's for 1999 received a black box which records data up to 5 seconds before an accident for use in analyzing air bag, ABS, and other data during a collision.

Unlike the Corvette, Camaro's with LSI V8 engines never had electronic throttle linkage. However, electronic throttle control was included with V6 coupes and convertibles starting in 1999.

A new engine oil life monitor used a computer algorithm to analyze engine rpm, coolant temperature and driving distances to determine recommended oil change intervals.

A new non-metallic tank increased fuel capacity from 15.5 gal to 16.8.

2000

(http://www.mcpasd.k12.wi.us/kms/webfolder01_02/webba07343/pictures/2000%20camaro.jpg)

The most obvious change for the 2000's are the new style of wheels. The V6 still comes with wheel covers (which have been the same style since 1993), although the 16" wheels are optional. The Z28 has the 16" wheels standard with either a painted or polished surface. The 17" wheels are not available on the V6 or Z28. They are part of the SS Performance Appearance package.

The interior gets an update with a radio control steering wheel similar to the Firebird and Grand Prix's, leather wrapped. Cloth available in: Ebony (black), Accent, and Medium Gray. Leather available in Ebony and Neutral. Neutral cloth and Arctic White leather dropped.

Aluminum wheel designs were new, including RPO N96 16" standard with Z28, N98 16" polished optional with all but SS, and the 17" SS style. N98 required excess finishing time and was changed to chrome finish. It is thought all polished wheels went on GM fleet vehicles.

Ebony (true black) interior replaced Dark Gray. Medium Gray interior replaced White. Accent replaced Red Accent. Fabrics were new styles.

Exterior colors Monterey Maroon Metallic and Sebring metallic added; Hugger Orange, LeMans Blue dropped.

A leather-wrap steering wheel with redundant radio control was optional.

2001

(http://www.fvn.no/amcar/joyrides/camaro/01camaro2.jpg).

Camaro is the purest, most uncompromising expression of the breed, making it "America's honest sports car." Camaro remains true to it's 34 year heritage character, whether in coupe or convertible form. Equipped with either the standard 3800 V6 engine or the growling Corvette-inspired 5.7 Liter LS1 V8, Camaro is eager to perform. And with four unique models, three transmission options and other option packages such as the SS, Camaro is the next best thing to a Corvette, offering the customer an affordable choice to the higher-priced domestic or import models.

Code 71 Sunset Orange was a new 2001 exterior color, although 13 2000 models were also painted this hue. Sebring Silver Metallic (code 13) and Hugger Orange (code 99) were not available.

Newly styled 16-inch chrome wheels were introduced.

In the way of functionality, the LS1 V8 engine has an improved horsepower rating of 310 and an improved torque rating of 340 lb.-ft. for Z28 models. Plus the SS models also offer more power with horsepower rising to 325 and torque improving to 350 lb.-ft.

The Base Camaro convertible is discontinued in Canada; decontented Z28 model introduced.

LS6 Intakes are now stock on all F-Bodies along with the removal of EGR, GM installed smaller camshafts as well. New updated Slave and Master cylinder are introduced to help fix the problems with the older systems.

The Base Camaro convertible is discontinued in Canada; decontented Z28 model introduced.

Production of 29,009 Camaro's in 2001 was the lowest in Camaro history. Part of the reason was an early build-out to allow an early start up of 2002 production, the Camaro's 36th and final year.

Horsepower for the LSI engine (Z28 and B4C models) increased from 305hp to 310hp, and torque from 335 lb.-ft to 340 lb.-ft. Horsepower for the Camaro SS version of the LSI increased from 320hp to 325hp, and torque from 345 lb.-ft to 350 lb.-ft.

Code 71 Sunset Orange was a new 2001 exterior color, although 13 2000 models were also painted this hue. Sebring Silver Metallic (code 13) and Hugger Orange (code 99) were not available.

Newly styled 16-inch chrome wheels were introduced.

The Camaro reaches the final year of production. Heritage/Anniversary packages are available as well as the 35th Anniversary badging. Badging could be the Camaro Dash Plate, or even embroidered on the headrests. Wheel choices also differ for special Anniversary Packages. Certain 2002 LS1's were also found with the LS6 Corvette engine block. Factory 'Freaks' crank out a whopping 400 BHP, 60 more than advertised.

Camaro celebrates its 35th year of Performance American Style. Camaro's V8, rear-drive DNA dates back to the fall of 1966 and remains an icon of uncompromised performance.

The 2002 Camaro is a 2-door, up to 4-passenger CS, or CV, available in 4 trims, ranging from the Coupe to the Z28 Convertible. The 2002 Camaro's closest competitors include the Acura RSX, the Mitsubishi Eclipse, and the Volkswagen New Beetle Convertible.

Upon introduction, the Coupe is equipped with a standard 3.8-liter, V6, 200-horsepower engine that achieves 19-mpg in the city and 31-mpg on the highway. A 5-speed transmission with overdrive is standard, and a 4-speed a transmission with overdrive is optional. The Z28 Convertible is equipped with a standard 5.7-liter, V8, 310-horsepower engine that achieves 18-mpg in the city and 25-mpg on the highway.

Farewell to the F-body!

The GM St. Therese plant in Canada will produce the very last Camaro (and Firebird). They will roll off the assembly lines for the last time Tuesday, August 27th 2002. Both cars will be red convertables and will go into GM's Heritage Collection.

The St. Therese plant will officially close Wednesday, August 28th 2002.

Last year for Camaro. Official wording by General Motors was "Hiatus". As the Camaro was put on Hiatus. Seeing how "Hiatus" means "Put on hold", and not discontinued, we can assume this means they have indeed put it on HOLD and will bring it back at a later date.

Introduction of a special 35th Anniversary package; reintroduced base convertible model with V6 engine and 4-speed automatic transmission.

Camaro Base convertible now came with a 4-speed automatic transmission rather than the 5-speed manual. There was no 5-speed or 6-speed manual transmission available for the Camaro base convertible.
