What's a Low-Mileage 2021 Chevy Camaro 1SS Worth to You?

Like its direct challenger (pun intended) from Dodge, the current Chevrolet Camaro is about to bite the dust, with the final one rolling off the line in January 2024. But fret not, as the nameplate will return.

What does that mean? A direct successor would be the most logical approach, as the bowtie brand likely wouldn't risk not having a muscle car in its portfolio anymore. Whether it will be fed by electrons or gasoline, or perhaps both, is a different topic, and some believe it might spark a sub-brand with additional body styles using the famous moniker.

Chevy's website reveals that a brand-new 2024 Camaro starts at $32,495 before destination, featuring the 335 hp (340 ps/250 kW) and 284 lb-ft (385 Nm) of torque 3.6L V6 engine. The better-equipped 2LT adds $2,000 to the MSRP, and the 3LT can be ordered from $38,495. Packing a 455 hp (461 ps/339 kW) and 455 lb-ft (617 Nm) 6.2-liter V8, the LT1, 1SS, and 2SS have respective MSRPs of $40,395, $43,895, and $48,895.

Everyone knows the top-of-the-line flavor of the series, which is the ZL1. This Hellcat fighter is the punchiest one, and even if it may not be on par with Dodge's range-topping Challengers, it is still a 10-second car on a good day. Powering it is a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine that makes 650 hp (659 ps/485 kW) and 650 lb-ft (881 Nm) of torque. As for the MSRP of a brand-new Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, it is $73,695.

Now that we've reminded ourselves about the power and pricing of the sixth-gen Camaro, it is time to take a look at a 2021 1SS that's searching for a new home. It has a red finish with a few black accents, 20-inch five double-spoke alloys in black spinning around the red brakes, and a black interior that mixes leather and suede. It comes with the standard six-speed manual transmission with hill-hold assist and makes use of the naturally aspirated 6.2-liter V8. The odometer indicates 9,947 miles (16,008 km), so it is a low mileage example, albeit one that's priced accordingly.

Garage Kept Motors is responsible for selling it. The online ad, which you can see here, reveals an asking price of $49,900, or nearly $10,000 over the MSRP of a brand-new 2024 model. Therefore, it is not exactly a bargain muscle car, but the fact that you can beat the waiting list and drive home in it after transferring the funds and signing your name on the papers should help it find a new home in no time. Is it worth paying that much for it when you can get one with only the delivery miles under its belt and lots of plastics to peel off? Speak your mind below in the comments section, and tell us what you think of it.
