Thank you for the info.

Now waiting for the thread to start on an aftermarket solution for adding the ABL in the dash.

If that's the final configuration, then it must not look bad at all. Like Scott said, if it didn't look right, it wasn't gonna happen. Therefore, it looks right, just like the rest of the car. Can't wait to see it.

There have been many inquiries from customers who saw a very early pre-production photo of the Camaro interior. The photo displayed a blue ambient light traveling across the top of the door panel inserts and on to the dash. This early concept proved to be very popular, and the product team worked on developing a similar feature for the production model.

As a result an ambient lighting feature is now a standard condition with the start of production on all 2LT and 2SS models. This light will have a light blue tint with Black, Neutral and Gray interiors, and reddish-orange tint when the Inferno Orange Interior Package is ordered. This feature is only in the door panels and not across the dash as the concept photo originally illustrated.

This feature is not an orderable option, but will be included on all 2LT and 2SS models at the start of production. No action is required by the customers or dealers to receive this feature.

At the Cleveland Auto Show this weekend, we plan to show an image of how the light is displayed and answer questions.



Our goal was to have the look of the early rendering (and it was just a rendering -- never an announced feature), but there were a couple of issues with execution. In the end, a desire to have the highest quality look, fit and feel for the interior won out (which is the way it should be). I know some will be disappointed, but I still think in the end we have the best in class interior.
Scotty...that's all well and good but what I REALLY want to know is.....Will it have ABL?

Thanks for the update CamaroScotty! I really hope this puts an end to the "discussion" but I doubt it.

Please don't

I hate the "ABL" acronym that was somehow created here... it makes absolutely no sense to me, and I refuse to call it that. It's Ambient Lighting!!!

Thank you for finally ending this, Scotty! Now we can live with one less acronym on this board

If GM decided to include it, then it's going to look good. The end.

+1 -

I'm actually going to look for custom solution in advance. Any idea if the plastic on the dash is easily removable? Then we could string our own neon or led tubing inside!!!

Thanks Scotty, You know, I thought about cancelling, ONLY TO RE-ORDER
when it was rite, and get hud, and probably alot of other goodies in a year
or so. I dont haft to be the FIRST on the block to have one(like ALOT of you)

But with the economy and govt. Whose to say this car will be here in a year
or so( especially with the 426 ponies),so with that said, I will go ahead and
take it now. I mean surelly GM wouldnt release a car if it did'nt look rite?


btw, I have not seen 1 person say they would cancel altogether over ABL.
(Felt a need to say this 1 more time!)


O yeh, cancelling altogeter means , not re-ordering later, being done with,
finished, no more maro. just thought I better mention that.

When I said Cancel their order I didn't specifiy if it was a temporary cancellation or permanent. either way the ones behind them will move up the line... I did read a couple posts from some people that said if ABL wasn't going to work like the description And or video said it would that they would cancel their order. Maybe they meant cancel the option (at that time) for the ABL.. I don't know...
Oh well...
