Some 2017 Chevy Camaro Models See Price Cuts of $400–$2900© jcapparella Some 2017 Chevy Camaro Models See Price Cuts of $400–$2900 The Chevy Camaro has been closing ground on the Ford Mustang's sales lead as of late, and Chevy is looking to keep the good times rolling by lowering the price on certain 2017 Camaro trim levels. A new base model called the 1LS, available only with a manual transmission, starts at $26,900 including destination—not quite as low as the 2017 Ford Mustang V-6's base price of $25,815, but $400 less than the 2017 Camaro's previous lowest price. Several 2017 Camaro convertible trim levels also drop by $1000 to $2900 as part of this lineup reshuffling.

From what we can tell, the manual-only 1LS is no different from the now-discontinued 1LT manual trim level: the main change is that the 1LT trim now has the eight-speed automatic transmission as standard (it was previously a $1495 option). That means that the 1LT automatic's price drop is even more significant, as its new price of $27,595 is $1200 less than before. The 1LS, 1LT, and 2LT come with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder as standard and a 3.6-liter V-6 as an option; SS models are powered by the rip-roaring 6.2-liter V-8. The rest of the coupe trim levels, including 2LT ($31,400), 1SS ($37,900), and 2SS ($42,900), don't change in price.

The 2017 Camaro convertible, however, sees price drops across the board. The 1LS trim, which is also manual-only, starts at $31,400, which is $2900 less than the 1LT manual convertible's previous price. The 1LT automatic convertible is $2200 less than before, and now starts at $33,595. The 2LT convertible, meanwhile, has had its price trimmed by $1800, to $36,600, while the V-8–powered 1SS and 2SS convertibles are each $1000 cheaper, at $43,900 and $48,900.

These price changes went into effect a few weeks ago, and the slightly cheaper 2017 Camaros are now on sale nationwide. So, if a few hundred or a few thousand dollars are enough to persuade you to join the Chevy muscle-car club, there's no better time than the present.
