That is a GS the front end on the turbo is a little different. You can get the regal in turbo 220 HP or the GS like pictured (ho Turbo) 270 HP /295 Lb Ft. With the GS you get GS Mode which is stiffer steering and 20% more suspension than Sport Mode, Sport Mode which is 20% more suspension than normal mode, Hyper Struts, that unique front fascia and a unique rear one. Mine is a 6 sp manual and is fun to drive for sure.

Not to mention you can still tow with a trailblazer. The Jeeps have center exit exhaust (=No towing). New the SS was about $20k less then the Jeeps new, with only 25hp less.

Why not just add another vehicle to the stable rather than replacing the Camaro? When we moved to Pittsburgh, I replaced my GTO with a TrailBlazer LS and Camaro SS (albeit a 4th gen). We just had our first child in March, so I was preparing for such a lifestyle change Nonetheless, I still have a "fast" car (12's used to be fast!) and a practical, all weather vehicle.

Find a good low mileage used one for about 14-16k.

Had mine for a couple of years and love it... The Camaro I ordered will be my toy.
V6 was available through the end of that generation -- our 2012 LTZ has the 3.6. Don't forget they require mid-grade 89 to achieve that 252hp rating.

Neither are most lanes on the road but I'd still rock one. Just make sure you strap that newborn in nice and tight.

If its a v8 sedan you're looking to get into, then its either the Chrysler 300 or Charger, or the new Chevy SS as a logical step up in roominess to the camaro.

What I would do (what I've done) would be to keep the camaro and pick up a reasonable, roomy car...(or two haha).
