So far I've only personally seen CTS Coupes and the SRX(driven) with it.
The CTS is built in Lansing, Michigan and the SRX in Ramos Arizipe, Mexico so they can sure as heck deliver the LFX motors to Oshawa.
I would fully expect that we will see Camaros within the week with the LFX.
The Camaro is too important to GM to not have the Camaro get it ASAP.

I've been wondering this myself for the past couple days now.. Wanting to see what kind of improvements the new HP bump gives on the 1/4 mile times, even if slight. Not expecting too much of course, just a little something something. I'm guessing we'll see some breaking into the high 13's, at least low 14's in stock form. Will be interesting to see at least what GM has in store for those opting for the v6.

Very nice!

I like how they made the switch from buttons to actual flaps for the tapshift. One thing I did hear him mention was the old 312hp rating instead of the new 323hp rating, but just nitpicking I suppose. Beautiful car, can't wait till I can stop dreaming about getting one and actually get one. Nice find again.

That's because the "323" isn't confirmed or SAE certified...

I've seen 318hp on the window sticker of the '12 CTS and 308hp on the '12 SRX. On the Impala it will be 302hp for the '12 cop car.
We know the CTS has less room under the hood than the Camaro for the air intake, so it's pretty fair to say the Camaro will have 323hp(maybe more. LOL)

That is sharp car.....I will take mine in Summit White with the gray interior and black stripes......I love how he said "ventilated" disc brakes...and kept saying 312-hp.....obviously not a car guy.
