The recertification process also found an extra five pound-feet of torque hidden inside the Camaro's 3.6-liter V-6, giving it a new total of 278 pound-feet. Mustang fans will of course point out that the Camaro still falls two pound-feet short of Ford's V-6. Because GM hasn't actually changed anything in the engine, just recertified it, the V-6 Camaro's performance numbers shouldn't change. That means a zero to 60 time of 5.7 seconds and a quarter-mile time of 14.4 seconds at 98.3 mph,[U]leaving it still just behind the Mustang, which hits 60 in 5.1 seconds and runs the quarter-mile in 13.7 seconds at 102 mph, owing to its lighter weight."
The best thing I can tell you is that we won't know for certain the options you can get on Camaros until at least you can start building them on the chevy site and ordering them.

Their might be more changes coming. Nobody but GM upper management know this.
