Soon, Chevrolet will debut the sixth-generation version of its Camaro muscle car. That means the fifth generation – which revived the Camaro name and proceeded to regularly outsell its cross-town rival, the Ford Mustang – is on its way out. To commemorate the Gen 5's successes, Chevrolet brought two limited editions to the 2014 SEMA Show in Las Vegas.

Shown above, we have the Camaro Special Edition, which isn't actually its name, as we explain here. Although it can be had in either coupe or convertible body styles, buyers are limited to the SS model and its 6.2-liter V8. Aside from that, a "ground effects" body kit has been fitted along with a ZL1 rear spoiler and 21-inch chromed Dusk wheels. Cyber Gray rally stripes and the standard RS package round out the exterior work.

Next up is the Camaro Commemorative Edition, available as either a coupe or convertible and with either a standard 3.6-liter V6 or an optional 6.2-liter V8. Unique 20-inch wheels, a body color front splitter and the rear spoiler from the ZL1 are the main aesthetic changes, although Chevrolet has fitted the typical range of graphics and badges, as well as an Adrenaline Red leather interior. Basically, all of these Camaro models, like the Convertible Spring Special Edition from the 2013 SEMA show, are created using parts of the GM aftermarket catalog along with unique color schemes.

Scroll down for the full press releases on both Special Edition and the Commemorative Edition, and then take a look up top for a gallery of the former and down below for the latter.

Chevrolet will announce the name next month, when the vehicle publicly debuts at the SEMA Show, the world's largest trade show of automotive personalization and performance.

"Chevrolet has made a tradition of offering special-edition models each spring, but this is the first time we've turned to the community of Camaro fans to name it," said Todd Christensen, Camaro marketing manager. "We can't think of a better way to involve the owners and enthusiasts who have made it the segment's best-selling sports car for four years running."

The special-edition Camaro SS will be offered in coupe and convertible models with 2SS trim. In addition to the exclusive Emerald Green Metallic exterior, the package includes:

2015 Camaro Commemorative Edition Debuts at SEMA
Special edition celebrates culmination of segment-leading fifth-generation Camaro

LAS VEGAS – Chevrolet revealed the 2015 Camaro Commemorative Edition at the SEMA Show today. The special edition celebrates the success of the fifth-generation Camaro – which is on track to be America's best-selling performance car for five consecutive years – and marks the final year for the fifth generation. The special edition goes on sale this spring.

More than 400,000 fifth-generation Camaros have been sold since April 2009. Since then, Camaro has been America's best-selling performance car for four consecutive years. Camaro sales for the first 10 months of 2014 are up 8 percent over the same period a year ago, and Camaro currently leads Mustang by 10,000 sales – putting Camaro on track to be America's favorite performance car for a fifth consecutive year.

"The fifth-generation Camaro was a success from the moment it was introduced, in attracting both long-time Camaro fans and new buyers who have never owned a Chevrolet," said Todd Christensen, Camaro Marketing Manager. "We wanted to create a special edition Camaro that celebrates that success as the fifth generation comes to a close as the end of the model year."

The 2015 Camaro Commemorative Special Edition is available on 2LT and 2SS coupes and convertibles and includes the RS package.

The exterior features of the Commemorative Edition include unique 20-inch wheels; exclusive stripe; body-color front splitter; ZL1 rear spoiler; and Commemorative Edition fender emblems.

Five exterior color combinations are available: Black with Cyber Gray stripe, Silver Ice Metallic with Cyber Gray stripe, Summit White with silver stripe, Ashen Gray Metallic with silver stripe and Red Hot with black stripe. SS models receive a body-color hood insert.

The new Adrenaline Red interior, only offered on the Commemorative Edition, features adrenaline red and black leather seating surfaces, adrenaline red instrument panel insert and red stitching on the seats, steering wheel, shift knob, shift boot, door trim armrest and center console lid. Additional details exclusive to the Commemorative Edition include a leather-wrapped, flat-bottom steering wheel and Commemorative Edition sill plates.

Fifth-generation Camaro special editions
The Commemorative Edition builds on the fifth-generation Camaro's legacy of uniquely equipped, limited-run models with custom-inspired exterior and interior appointments. Previous special editions included:
• Camaro Transformers (2010 and 2012)
• Camaro Indy Pace Car (2010 and 2011)
• Camaro Synergy Series (2011)
• Camaro Neiman Marcus Edition (2011)
• Camaro Synergy Series (2012)
• Camaro 45th Anniversary (2012)
• Camaro Dusk (2013)
• Camaro Hot Wheels Edition (2013).

Since its introduction, the Camaro line has expanded to nine distinct models:
• The 323-horsepower V-6-powered LS coupe and LT coupe and convertible – including the 2LS with an EPA-rated 30 mpg on the highway – which match performance with efficiency.
• The SS coupe and convertible come with Chevy's legendary small-block V-8, featuring a 6.2L engine delivering up to 426 horsepower and 0-60 acceleration 4.7 seconds.
• The road-racing-inspired Camaro 1LE performance package for SS coupe (manual transmission only), with unique gearing, suspension tuning and tires that make it capable of more than 1 g of lateral acceleration.
• The Camaro ZL1 (coupe and convertible), which is at home on the race track, the drag strip or daily commuting. It features a supercharged 6.2L V-8 with 580 horsepower and 556 lb-ft of torque – making the ZL1 the most powerful Camaro ever from Chevrolet. It is also the most technologically advanced, with standard Magnetic Ride Control and, on coupe models, Performance Traction Management.
• The Camaro Z/28 – the most track-capable Camaro ever. It features exterior elements designed like a race car to produce downforce that presses the car against the track for greater grip – up to 1.08 g in cornering acceleration – and faster lap times. Motor Trend named it their Best Driver's Car for 2014.
• Chevrolet has also offered the COPO Camaro since 2012, a hand-built race car designed exclusively for drag racing. It's the first purpose-built Camaro race car from Chevy and the quickest Camaro ever from the factory. Only 69 were built in 2012, 2013 and 2014, with 69 planned for 2015.
