The MRC should have two settings (my ZL1 did, and the difference between the two was dramatic). I can't believe that you cannot tell the difference between tour and sport, and that they both feel...

Blind spot warning on the side mirrors helps tremendously. It should be standard on cars like the Camaro, but I don't know if it is or not.

Those splash guards are so small and subtle, they should have been integrated into the bodywork and saved everyone the trouble.

Right, I was going to wait to see what the new Z Camaro was like, but when I saw the back seat, I decided to trade my ZL1 for a Hellcat instead. Taking my father and son (6' and 6'1 respectively) out...

Totally unoriginal. From the side, just another Aston Martin wannabe, much like the Mustang. We've been seeing this design since the 2002 Hyundai Tiberon coupe; it's a cliche. Interior is hideous....

Well, given the back seat space of the new Camaro, it comes damn close to being a sports car (2-seater).

The old idea that cops target red cars is a myth.Time to put it to rest. Cops target cars that are going too fast; they don't care what the color of the car is.

I talked to chief designer Tom Peters at the "New Roads" event at TMS and he said the ATS platform dictated that the rear seat be placed "more forward" than in the 5th gen. Hence the legroom problem.

Yes, the ZL1/Z28 or whatever needs to come out next fall, or spring at its latest. The GT350 needs to be knocked off its perch. Don't doubt Chevy will do it though.

Thanks for the extensive review. As for the rear seats, they are usable in a pinch; you just have to move the front seats more forward temporarily than you like. I have a wife and two kids, and I can...

The new SS matches the GT350R's acceleration numbers for $15-20k less. The upcoming Z car should obliterate it.

Funny how they let you put red hashmark stripes on a blue car, but then not the red knee bolsters inside (changes the exterior color to silver when you choose them).:iono:

I disagree, it only has to outrun the Hellcat. With a 300-400 lb weight advantage, it won't need to match the Hellcat's 707 HP.

A disguised Camaro with a different hood/extractor vent and front fascia has already been spotted testing. Either a ZL1 or Z28.
