Same here. Just wondering if 1le owners think there is enough there to justify the cost for a GEN 6. My 2013 2ss 1le will be worth about $27k this time next year, (well at least the bank who...

It may be difficult to lease a new 2016 if all the banks do not have their residuals and money factors available yet. The key to a good lease if a high residual value, low money factor (interest),...

My 2SS 1LE with every option except recaros had an MSRP of $43k, paid around 38500. If a 2016 2SS camaro costs $50k, it better come with a supercharger in it. For that much money I would think...

With that info the car is priced too high. Probably worth more around 20-22k assuming it was repaired properly.

They may not have priced it correctly thinking it is just a regular 2SS, although there is probably not much of an add for the 1LE package anyway. Maybe $12-1500 or so. You can see in the specs the...

That's just the way life is. Pros and cons. Black looks sharp but more work to keep looking sharp. These new blue colors may be a nice compromise though.

I agree. I just hope they keep these cars affordable. Once you get over that $35k range you it becomes a stretch for a lot of folks who love a V8 Camaro.
