Listen to this story:

The Chevy Camaro is as American as apple pie, with a little help from some other countries in the world.

Several years after the concept version was introduced GM finally unveiled the production version of the Chevy Camaro. But don’t get too excited just yet, it won’t hit showrooms until next year.

The exterior design is very similar to the concept, with that V-shaped grill and gills in the rear quarter panels especially stand out. Inside the design is a blend of classic and contemporary looks. For example, the gauges on the center counsel cluster are sort of like the ones on the ’69 Camaro but now they have LED back lighting and there’s an optional LED ambient lighting package.

Despite being such an iconic American car, the Camaro is actuially a product of GM’s global development process. The design was done in the United States, the engineering was done in Australia and the car will be assembled in Canada.

    You’re so right John. The new Camaro IS as American as Apple Pie. Being engineered in Australia and imported from Canada it’s a perfect representation of the immigrant population that America was built on. Apple Pie was engineered in the Netherlands and imported from England.
