The Chevrolet Camaro is an automobile manufactured by General Motors under the Chevrolet brand, classified as a pony car and some versions also as a muscle car. It went on sale on September 29, 1966, for the 1967 model year and was designed as a competing model to the Ford Mustang. The car shared its platform and major components with the Pontiac Firebird, also introduced for 1967. At that time, there was no need for keyless entry remote key fob programming instructions, as the keyless entry remote key fob option was not yet available.
The Chevrolet Camaro remained in production through the 2002 model year, marking 35 years of continuous production and 4 distinct generations. Chevy also offered a 35th anniversary edition for the 2002 model year. Production of the F-Body platform was stopped due to slowing sales, a deteriorating market for sports coupés, plant overcapacity, and stiff competition for sales from Ford's Mustang.
The nameplate was revived on a concept car that evolved into the fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro; production started on March 16, 2009. On April 1, 2010, the Chevrolet Camaro was named the World Car Design of the Year at the World Car of the Year Awards. Some model years have keyless entry remote key fobs that are onboard programmable, which means a person can program the keyless entry remote key fob with no special equipment other than the keyless entry remote key fob programming instructions. While other model years are not on-board programmable and require special equipment in order to program the keyless entry remote key fob.
