Camaro changes - Aqua Blue and Transformers Edition to end; high wing spoiler; hurst
 
There are a number of changes upcoming for the 2010 Camaro production that you need to be aware of:

The first change is there will not be a DOSP cycle this week as there are enough orders in the system to cover the necessary lead time for the plant. The next DOSP cycle will start on Thursday, October 29, 2009, which will also be the first week of allocation from the just completed consensus cycle.

Camaro Constraints Update
For the last few weeks, there has been a constraint in place that has limited the availability of the SS (V8 models 1ES37 and 1ET37) model to approximately 50% of total available Camaro production. The constraint is due to the continued high demand for SS production. The product team has been working hard with a number of suppliers to meet the market demand for the SS model; and, in the next two to three weekly DOSP cycles, the SS model constraint will steadily increase in availability to the point where production should align with current demand.

While the SS model constraint will be minimized, a new constraint on LT models equipped with the RS Package (V6 models 1EF37 and 1EH37 with RPO code WRS) will be instituted for the next Camaro DOSP weekly cycle (the DOSP cycle beginning next Thursday, October 29, 2009). This new constraint will significantly limit the availability (0% - 10%) of the LT models with the RS Package for the next five to six weekly DOSP cycles. However, after these five to six weekly DOSP cycles, the LT models with the RS Package constraint should improve and nearly align with current market demand.

Important Note: Although there is little content difference between RS Packages for a LT (V6) model and a comparable SS (V8) model, the new constraint ONLY impacts LT (V6) models. The RS Package (RPO code: WRS) will continue to be free flow when ordered with SS (V8) model. Camaro LT models without the RS package, and all LS models will also be free flow for production.

Again, the severity of this new RS Package constraint on LT models is only expected to last for production through the end of the calendar year. When production resumes after the planned holiday break in 2010, the availability of the RS Package on LT models is expected to improve significantly.

High Wing Spoiler Cancelled
Due to a number of issues, the dealer installed High Wing Spoiler (LPO code: 5V5) will be cancelled for the 2010 model year. If all goes well, the High Wing Spoiler will be introduced in the 2011 model year.

Orders currently on hand with the High Wing Spoiler will have the LPO code 5V5 removed and made available for submission.

Hurst Short Throw Shifter Availability
The introduction of the factory-installed Hurst Short Throw Shifter has been delayed to late Q1, 2010. Since the option code had not yet been introduced, this delay does not impact orders on hand; however, it does impact those customers who have been waiting to add the "official" Chevy accessory Hurst Short Throw Shifter to their current Camaro. The delay in the factory-installed shifter means the corresponding accessory part will also not be available until next Spring.

Aqua Blue Metallic Build Out
Aqua Blue Metallic (RPO: GBD) will end production for both Camaro and Impala the week of November 30, 2009. The last weekly DOSP cycle to submit an order for Aqua Blue Metallic will be the cycle that begins on Thursday, November 5, 2009, and concludes on Tuesday, November 10, 2009. After Tuesday, November 10, 2009, Aqua Blue Metallic will be on a full constraint, and removed from Order Workbench configurators and the Order Guide by the middle of November.

TRANSFORMERS Special Edition Build Out
As the next Camaro special edition ramps up, production of the current Camaro TRANSFORMERS Special Edition package (RPO: CTH) will end. The last weekly DOSP cycle to submit an order with the TRANSFORMERS Special Edition package will be the cycle that begins on Thursday, January 7, 2010, and ends on Tuesday, January 12, 2010. After Tuesday, January 12, 2010, the TRANSFORMERS Special Edition package will be on a full constraint, and removed from Order Workbench configurators and the Order Guide by the end of January.

Current estimates project about 1500 Camaro TRANSFORMERS Special Edition package will have been produced when production ends at the end of January.

Finally, the last four months, Camaro has outsold Mustang by over 7500 units -- a remarkable feat when you consider the dominance Mustang has enjoyed in the Regular Sport Segment over the last decade.

It didn't even take that for me. I didn't get anything. I'm going to tell my dealer of 20 some years to step it up or I'm going to camaroscotty.

Well, there's the official word on Aqua Blue Metallic. I'd be interested in knowing how many were produced, total. It'll be interesting to see how rare my car ends up being.

So Aqua Blue Metallic is being discontinued?! That's some big news.

I'm glad the High Wing Spoiler got canned. That thing was ugly

Oh, I knew it was a keeper. :D I'm just interested in seeing the final production numbers.

WySilverado 10-22-2009 10:39 AM

The SS constraint screwed my order,luckily a Dealer in Idaho has a 2SS/RS IOM/IO 6sp with white stripes and polished wheels ordered that wasn't sold and is on a transport truck...............My Dealer bought it from them and as soon as it shows up it's road trip time!

cab2g 10-22-2009 10:39 AM

Has the availability of the light green been confirmed for next year? Or will there be a dark green option as well? I'd much rather have dark green.
