The GTO also did not have AFM and the more sophisticated transmission setup that will be in the automatic Camaro (good old 4 speed was in the GTO while the Camaro will have a 6 speed and paddle shifters or a manual operation of some kind).

Another factor to consider is that, since GM knew the automatic would get the gas guzzler tax, I think they used that as a reason to charge extra for the 6 speed and say to people "hey, you're still getting it cheaper than an automatic without the gas tax"
