Question Summit White on the SS "Interim Availabilty"?

I was checking the Chevy Camaro website and it said Summit White was "interim availabilty". Could I get this on the SS?

I would not mind a white w/ orange stripes and orange interior than. Why are they starting in July and could I order it now?

You cannot order it now because it is not listed in the work bench system.

I guess you could stake your position at the dealership and order it once possible.

Send a message via AIM to mdky2kss
GM stated on the IDL that it will be available later because that is when they are going to be switching to Summit White on the Impalas too. They want to be able to paint only one white at the Oshawa plant. That is what Cheryl said on the IDL.

Well, I guess it's kinda good that I'll be waiting a few more months (to save more $$). My first choice in color was white, but I would have been happy with Silver.

Waiting will allow me to get white.

Ordered an orange w/white stripes yesterday - originally I wanted White w/orange stripes. I just can't wait until July

Plus the CAFE standards make it harder to accomplish in an environmentally friendly manner.

I missed that part of the IDL on the reasoning but mdkyss response is logical. The 2009 Malibu is now the 50U Summit White (changed from the 40U White) so it does stand to reason a July date would coincide with the changeover to 2010 production for the Impala at Oshawa and thus the Camaro available in White also.
