Japan Commemorates 2020 Camaro With Heritage Edition
As exciting as the 2020 Chevy Camaro’s American release has been, this performance car has also had a warm welcome in Japan. Per Autoblog, the country is commemorating the redesign of this model with an exclusive limited-edition version: the Heritage Edition.
Chevy will release just 90 units of the Heritage Edition to the Japanese market. That means you’ll have to act fast if you want to nab one of these eye-catching models.

The Heritage Edition comes in Rally Green Metallic, a hue that’s a bit darker and more dramatic than that of the first-generation Camaro. It comes in either convertible or coupe body style. SS trims come with black 20-inch wheels while other trims incorporate silver alloys for a flashier aesthetic.
Though the automaker has yet to reveal what the interior looks like, Autoblog has confirmed that the convertible will get a Kalahari (brown) interior while the coupe will receive a Jet Black one.
Both models come with an automatic transmission and your choice of either a 275-horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine or a 453-horsepower 6.2-liter V8. Unfortunately, manual transmission and a 3.6-liter V6 engine aren’t available options.
Price point and release date
The Heritage Edition LT RS model will cost 5.65 million yen (about $51,500). Though, you can expect to pay 6.45 million yen (about $58,000) for the convertible version and 7.48 million yen (about $68,000) for the SS trim.
The model will go on sale this summer, according to Autoblog. But from the preliminary photos we have of it, it seems like it’ll be worth the wait.
