Exclamation 2012 Camaro - New Color and Options Info

Reported on HOMEPAGE.

Yes, it's not yet even 2011, but some info on the 2012 Camaro has already come to light. The 2012 model is due sometime in middle of 2011 (June-July) and will feature the following new color and options.

Note: these may not be inclusive of all the new options/features and do not reflect any potential styling changes. Info courtesy of BeckyD@RodgersChevrolet

  • New V6 engine option: "LFX 3.6L SIDI, DOHC, VVT, E85 MAX, Alum GM" (see HERE for discussion)
    • The LFX should displace 3.6L, like the current V6 found in the Camaro. And it's packed to the brim with advanced technologies like Spark-Ignition Direct-Injection, Dual Overhead Cams, Variable Valve Timing, and E85 capability!!
  • New Carbon Flash Metallic (aka Black Granite) color (2SS and 2LT only)
  • 45th Anniversary Appearance Package (2SS and 2LT only)
  • 3 sets of 20" wheel designs (likely one for 45th anniversary package)
  • Rear view camera (2SS, 1SS, 2Lt, and 1LT)
  • Suspension system special ride and handling (FE4) (2SS coupe, 1SS coupe only)
  • No mention of navigation system (yet?)

The 2012 camaro colors will be:

  • Carbon Flash
  • Silver Ice
  • Summit White
  • Black
  • Red Jewel
  • Cyber Gray
  • Victory Red
  • Rally Yellow
  • Inferno Orange
  • Imperial Blue

Many of today's cars/trucks with rear view camera's are located in the interior rear view mirror's. So the inclusion of a rear view camera no longer requires a nav system.

  • Rear view camera (2SS, 1SS, 2Lt, and 1LT)


What are the odds that they will get rid of the rear sensors if they use a rear camera instead?

+1...This is most likely the route GM will take IMO.

GM really hates blue.... weird. I would've thought for sure that they'd be announcing a new blue for 2012. IBM is too dark!

Anyway, the backup camera is nice. I can't wait to see what the appearance packages look like! I'll be jealous of course!

I'm excited that they're adding suspension options as well. This may shut up MT regarding the loose suspension. ...And they're upgrading the interior! This had better shut reviewers up! Again, I'll be jealous, but you can't wait to buy forever, they always improve the next year!

hopefully they offer rear end gear options like the enemy does and factory Chrome wheels would be great to.

DANG I would love to see the Black Granite color. probably a metalic black that Mercedes Benz uses.
Im glad those rumors about the Dumbo side mirrors were only rumors :-)

If they were to put on those dumbo side mirrors in the US, I'd never want to upgrade. Those looked so horrible on this car it wasn't even laughable. It was just horrible.

Go to any Chevy dealer and look at the Impala's and you will see the Black Granite ... It's kinda like the IBM but in black with heavy silver and gray flakes ...

I like this, their adding some really cool stuff but nothing that will make us current owners upset that we didn't wait or something. Like V6 owners would be so angry if they added a turbo or V8 guys if they added new gearing options or a more powerful factory tune etc.

I hope they make some of this stuff available as accessories too, I'd be interested in the 2lt looks packages.

As said in the first post, the changes listed do not reflect any potential styling changes we may eventually see on the 2012 Camaro.

Always the case that something's released AFTER you buy.

I really wanted a black granite color but not flat black which is why I got cyber gray.

Ah well. I'm sure this is the first of a few new things to be announced I'll wish I had.
