Looks like they are going to do the same thing to the camaro they did with the Avalanche.

The new camaro had dramatic styling, and it was a HIT. Then they listen to all the average people give design input, they adjust their design accordingly, and create a coupe that looks like every other car on the market, and then wonder why no one buys it.

On the avalanche they had a crazy design that while a lot of people thought it was ugly, it sold well. They change the design to make it look like what everyone wanted and sales plumetted to 1/3rd what it was before, never recovering until they pulled it off the market.

GM needs a new VP of Marketing.
2010 Camaro SS modified extensively. I stretched the body to make it a 4 door, but I swapped in the 3.6L DI V6 for fuel economy. Then I picked up a corvette body around the V8. I also swapped the body for a C2 Z28. (In short I traded it for three cars, a Corvette Z06r, a C2 Camaro Z28, and a Cadillac CTS Summer Performance package 3.6L DI with Aisin 6spd.)
