Looks like, I wondered if this was what they were doing. To be fair, Ford was going to do the same thing with the 2010 4.6L, but it didn't work out....or at least it didn't work out to the extent that they had planned.

A power passenger seat will do nothing but add more weight the car doesnt need. Take out your driver seat and weigh it, then weigh the passenger seat.

No thank you, the passenger will survive without power.

I'm a little confused by this too. Did GM give it a "conservative rating"? Or SAE? Who? Did this extra 8 hp just appear? How did you get it?

Only if he is a mediocre driver. Every 2005 and newer Mustang GT is a solid 13 second car, it takes some doing to make a naturally aspirated V6 Camaro run 13's. The fact that a 2011 Mustang V6 with the optional gears will be door to door with him at the end of the 1/4 mile? That may well piss him off a bit.

not to mention we're talking similar kinds of cars, i think its kinda dumb people bash one pony car on another on looks - they are all more or less the same! - its would be a different story if they were comparing a 5gen Camaro to the current STi...

People complain about the weight yet they want things which will add more.

I am starting to believe the rumor that Chevy rated the 2011 v6 for 91 octane fuel and the 2010 Camaro v6 for 87 octane.

Exactly what I wanted to say. The marvelous car that we'd deemed as a gift from the gods barely a year ago all of a sudden isn't enough??? Gimme a break. Everyone knows that the companies don't try to renew interest for a couple of years with the overhaul every four. So what the h*** was everybody expecting?? I was actually suprised they screwed with horsepower so soon! Synergy Green was no suprise as a full time color. It was already being produced and proved to be successful in sales. Same ole song.

Get over it.

Hey GM, how about memory seats? I’m 6’4”, my wife is 5’4” I love the ability to press one button and have everything set to the way I drive after she has driven it.

He'll still take me at the track... He too has an intake, in addition to a tune. Still, it's fun to rag on him a bit to get him riled up!

While I agree with you, its like they had two differnt designers on the mustang. One guy designed the front half and did an outstanding job and then they had Stevie Wonder do the rear. They should of went with the concept rear for a real knock out car.

I hope they fix it so the HUD shows the same speed and revs as the instrument panel

Someone gets a photoshop fail for that pic

you hit the nail on the head. It's as if they forgot to finish the rear of the Stang. The front doesn't look bad at all IMO but the rear is another story. To each his/her own I guess.

Could not agree more. Considered the Mustang GT, but everytime I walked around to the backside, I just couldnt take it. Those rear taillights are horrible. Love the front, hate the back. Bought a Camaro. Love all of it!

That's fantastic. So they didn't actually make any changes to the V-6 other than just say it now has 312 HP yet they are calling it a HP increase over last year. What? They could have at least done what other companies do and make up something about tweaking the intake manifold or something.
I hate when car companies do this. The HP rating varies from motor to motor anyway, so OBVIOUSLY some cars may have 312 and others may have 306.
I'm digging the SG SS though. This made my next purchase much more difficult...

The 304 horsepower in the 2010 Camaro was actually a conservative rating on our end,” said Tom Sutter, GM V-6 chief engineer. “But we knew already that this award-winning engine produced at least the amount of power we stated, but now we’ve gone the extra step in certifying the engine for this application and have verified an additional 8 horsepower.”
..now I have to change my stickers again, and what about all those already published literature? Who's in charge of marketing again?

..I'll just find some '327' logos some place. That should cover it..

Honestly, I expected more. Maybe, as other have said, this is only the first volley of information and more is to come.
