Love the pass. dash revision, but the new wheel is hideous, and the non-ZL-1 cars don't even have the flat bottom, which makes it even more ridiculous. As for the "keeping costs down" argument, it's a steering wheel, not a platform. The current design is model-specific, so I don't buy that. Like someone mentioned earlier, it's just like when they put the Cavalier wheel in the '05 Vettes. The interior is utilitarian enough without adding a steering wheel from the Cruze. Just my .02...

I was driving around a cruze today and the wheel actually feels amazing and it isn't as big as the 2010 camaro wheel! I feel its an improvement

Dang! everyone is worried about the steering wheel. I was hoping that they would dump the poor retro job on the speedo and tach...two ugly bumps on the dash and hard to read speed...do not care for digital speed indicator...

And not to mention the radio controls???

Just take the C-6 cluster and stack...nice..

Why all the hate

2010-2011 Interior Design looks incredible. 2012 steering wheel is not my fav but the car is amazing. Keeping the Camaro alive and letting more people experience the greatness is important.

This reminds me of all the bitch!ng over the tail lights that turned out to be a complete non-issue.

Jeez, everyone, relax.

And I've never seen so many people complain about a steering wheel. I drove a Cruze and wasn't a huge fan of the wheel. But then I don't buy cars because of steering wheels, so I figure I'll get used to it and it really can't/shouldn't be that big of a deal. I've had steering wheels that weren't my absolute favorites before but it's not like that affected my experience with the vehicle in any way.

I'll be way too busy flooring the gas pedal, feeling the wind through my hair, and drifting around corners to even remember the steering wheel's there!

For all the people bitchin' about the steering wheel, have you actually seen it in person? My initial impressions when I first saw the wheel in these pictures were.....meh...OK, I guess. When I saw it in person at Camaro5 Fest, it looked good. I guess my only complaint is the Chevy bowtie in the middle. I like the '10-'11 steering wheel "Camaro" letters because it makes it unique to the Camaro.

No hate here, just a dumb dash...I bought and drove the orginals (ya we ran new goats, hemi cudas, SS, road runners like they would make them forever) and the dash looked better and you could read the speed etc...

I think the speedo and tach are a poor effort and the radio makes no sense to me ...look at the late 60s..not that good but why a sad copy now...

Look at the C-6 dash and stack....no wrapped bumps in your face with no flow...and you can read the speed too...gee...the HUD is great for this Camaro

The camaro wrapper is real good but you spend all your time driving looking at the dash..let the Camaro flow and lose some of the retro..Looked at a 69 z-28 just the other day and the current dash is not the winner....check the dash on this 69...

I think the next gen Camaro has a chance to be the best performing and the best looking inside and out if the retro grip is given the boot or at least less of a grip......

On a side note to let you know how it was back then.....had a friend in VM and he stored his paid for 69 Camaro Z-28. His father rolled it out one day to wash..went inside and Z was long gone and friend had no insurance and no Z when he got home from Nam...but he did come home.
