Synergy green vs synergy green special edition

The 2010 Synergy was to be a very limited production "synergy special edition". Many owners of this limited edition were angered when they learned GM continued production of the synergy model into the 2011 model year.

What are your thoughts?

They don't have a synergy model or package in 2011, they have a color.

The 2010 Synergy Green Special Edition, had this:

Interior ❱
• Leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob
• Jet Black cloth interior
• Synergy Green accent stitching
– Seats
– Steering wheel
– Shift knob
– Manual shifter boot
– Armrest and center console
• Synergy Green instrument panel and door inserts
with ice-blue LED light pipe
• Redundant steering wheel radio controls
• Bluetooth® connectivity for select phones1
• USB port2
Exterior ❱
• Synergy Green exterior paint
• Cyber Grey Rally Stripes
• 19-inch Sterling Silver painted wheels
• Rear spoiler from RS/SS models
• Ultrasonic Rear Parking Assist
Options ❱
• Automatic transmission with TAPshift®
controls and remote vehicle starter system
• Sunroof
• Boston Acoustics® Premium Audio

The option package’s ordering code is B2E. The Quick Order function of Order Workbench will start accepting orders for the package on Thursday, January 14, 2010. Production will commence in February, 2010. All items in this package will be installed at the factory, and covered under GM’s New Vehicle Limited Warranty.
Order acceptance for the Camaro Synergy Special Edition package is limited. The package will only be produced through May 2010. Allocation for this package must come out of the dealership’s existing Camaro allocation.

I have many opinions and personalities. No I don't, shut up and be quite no you be quite......

Speaking of which ketleone - the only special thing about the synergy special edition was the synergy color option. Other wise the edition is just an optioned lt. What would your opinion be if GM released a special limited edition yellow camaro in 2010 ( along with all the other yellow camaros but with the above mentioned options)...

Where are the angry people? They haven't posted here. Synergy is a premium color and that's it. The Special Super Spectacular Never-to-be-Used-Again Edition should have the stitching, door panels, and then that's it. The color itself, like Aqua Blue should be available as a dealer extra for any and all trims for the future. But at the same time those with the above ridiculous edition named cars, can still be unique with their extra included special items.

I think it would have been cool to keep the same color, but give it a different name.
So the original guys get something unique, the new guys who like the color get to get it.
Down the line it would make a good trivia question.

Wouldn't make much difference... the DMV would still list it as "GRN" no matter what you call it. Let's face it, that's what it is. The package deal was Limited, not the color.

Who cares what the DMV labels it as. It's about having something unique.
This little change is subtle, but gives it something unique.

Correct me if I am wrong but I think the roughly 1700 Transformer edition Camaros were just that. The also still made just Yellow ones.

I think that's the rub.. The color was to be limited. The package is nothing more than an optioned lt without the synergy paint. And the synergy color was only applied to the synergy edition in 2010, in other words you could not order the synergy color on any other option package.

Fair enough - the transformer branding made the car limited. The color option on the synergy edition made the car limited.

And you could only get the B2E package on the SGM.

Maybe I'm splitting hairs. But the B2E package was the bundle that included the synergy paint color. The paint made it "special".

In the above transformer example the synergy color and the transformer logo are the unique items that make the package special.

They could release a Special Edition Black Camaro too and it wouldn't make much difference to me. Make the stitching black, the seats, the lights, drop a disco ball from the ceiling I could care less. It wouldn't detract from me having a black car, but it would give someone buying the Super Special Limited Edition something unique in that they get little things I don't have. Same applies to Synergy or any other color. Have a Limited Edition that has small extras, but offer the exterior color to anyone for any trim.

I guess I fail to see the issue here. The new Synergy cars aren't the same and wont be. The only similarity is the outside color. Which again, everyone looks at it as green. You could go to an aftermarket paint manufacturer and supply him with a sample and they could make Synergy. But what they're not doing is adding panels, lights, and stitching inside.

I guess we found the real question I should have asked in the poll: what makes the synergy special edition so special? I thought the color did and now that has been taken from me and the other who also thought this.:(

Don't let some ruin it for you. The car IS unique period. It has it's own identity for a 2010 model. Enjoy, you have a rare car.

lol, I'm 100% positive the color was limited as well. When they decided to go with the synergy green in 2010, they were not going to make the same color in 2011. Until they dicided to bring it back, for a limited time. lol

We will have to agree to disagree about what makes it special.

The package including the spoiler, the stripes, the stitching, the auto with remote start, C&C, backup sensors, green door panels with ice, and being a special edition all made the decision of buying a V6 1LT in 2010 vs me waiting and ordering a 2011 SGM SS without all that.

Yes, there are other things that made the synergy green "special" or "limited" besides the color, but color was also a factor, until they decided to bring it back.

It's still "special" because of the color. Only you guys will have that color for 2010 and some of 2011 years. 2-5 years down the road, it will seem more special.

Q. Is the Synergy Green exterior color available on the LS, 2LT or SS models?
A. Not at this time; however, Chevrolet reserves the right to make the exterior color available if there is enough market demand.

Yeah it's all good - looks like it's about half and half on the poll. Guess there is no clear majority opinion on the subject. Time to let it go..........................
