With a redesign due the next year,
sales of the 1992 Chevrolet Camaro were low.
The 1992 Chevrolet Camaro, in the final year of the car's third generation, marked its 25th anniversary with a Heritage Appearance
option but otherwise continued with few changes.
Available in coupe or convertible form, the commemorative edition options package included a body-colored grille, black headlight pockets, hood and trunklid stripes, and special badging -- all for a mere $175. Cars with the Heritage Appearance package were available only in red, white, or black.
RS and Z28 models were again offered in both coupe and convertible form. Standard on RS Camaros was a 3.1-liter V-6 with port fuel injection and 140 horsepower, while a 5.0-liter V-8 with throttle-body injection and 170 horsepower was optional. Z28s came with a port fuel injected 5.0-liter V-8 that made 230 horsepower.
Optional on Z28 coupes only was a 245-horsepower 5.7-liter V-8, which was available only with a four-speed automatic; all other engines could be mated to either the automatic or a five-speed manual. New Z28 features included 16-inch alloy wheels to replace 15s, faster-ratio power steering, and a handling suspension.
With a heavily revised Camaro waiting in the wings for 1993, it's no surprise that sales plummeted in '92. Total production amounted to just over 70,000 units, the third-generation Camaro's worst full-year showing.
The convertible was available
on the Z28 (shown) or base RS model.
