According to DuPont, the popularity of blue is (unfortunately) on the decline. Their 2010 report on most popular automotive colors shows it at 5% globally while it was at 9% according to the 2009 report.

As for the dumbo mirrors... there will always be aftermarket sources so that shouldn't be a big worry.

If they never improved and added features there would be know temptation for those that already have one to want to buy a new one. I think they plan out all the features in the first design and just slowly release them a few each year.

Mine will be paid off when the Z28 is released and i'll be trading up for sure, Althou I think I will probably wait for a 2nd year production of the Z's so as not to miss out on any little addtions they might add in.

Backup up camera will be a plus. These things have so many blind spots when reversing

When are they going to add height adjustment to the passenger's seat?! IMO this is the biggest shortcoming and the easiest to fix! Most passengers that ride in my car dislike the car for this simple reason.

The trend has also been related to green and blue. One color rises in populatrity and the other one falls. It's only between those two colors too. In the 90's green was more popular, the 2000's was blue and now the trend seems to be going back to green. Everyone screams about bringing back aqua blue or a color like that but not many people bought that color. I would venture a guess that synergy green is a lot more popular and that's why it is still offered.

I wounder what the FE4 suspension will consist of, and how it will compare to the performance of aftermarket suspension setups out now. I'm eager to see the 45th anniversary package too.

I hope the suspension upgrade is the magnetic ride, because the 2011 Escalade has the option and I for one think that the Camaro should get it if they are using it on big SUVs.

Yeah still happy with my ABM 2ssRS, I was scared they were going to announce a new Blue. Abm is still the best in my eyes!

Changes for 2012

It would be nice if they re-arranged the console. The cupholders need to be on the passenger side of the console ala Corvette to get them out of the way. The console is designed obviously for the automatic trans. Most with the stick shift may agree that the console area under the right forearm gets in the way of the shifting. The cup location does for sure. Anyone agree?

If the next year has NAV, a redesigned console/interior and supercharger on a stock model like the 2ss/rs, I will give mine to the kid and buy a new one.

Most of this camera and black granite conversation in this thread is already in place at GM. My 2009 Black Granite Traverse 2LT has the back up camera in the rear view mirror and it also has back up sensors. They dont come on the 1LT and most is either standard or optional on the 2LT. I don't think you can get Black Granite on the LS and only the LTZ has in dash Navigation

ABM wasnt even offered for that long and there were no good samples of the color for people to go on from the beginning. ABM has been very popular on this site with many pleading for them to bring it back or offer something similar. It would just be nice if they could offer more colors than they do. Thats one of the biggest decisions when buying a car or truck.

Maybe LS drivers, like many early 2010 model year adopters, just know how to back up without needing a stupid beeping sound to tell them when to stop? Hmmmm....

45th Anniversary Appearance Package might get me to the show room! But 500+HP will.
