That is correct my comments are purely opinionated. We all have our hard earned money to spend and we buy what we like. The new Silverado is more technologically sound than ever before and on that aspect alone blows the previous truck away. However, the current design of the new Silverado just doesn't do it for me. For what it's worth, I own a 08 Sierra and I think the new Sierra looks much better than the new Silverado.

Right now they have discounts as steep as $13,000.00 on 2013 Sierras and Silverados. Is the new truck 13 grand better? I'm not so sure. They 13's are more than capable for much less money.

In the end it probably doesn't matter because we will either buy what they have to sell us or take our money elsewhere I suppose.

Did they end up changing the gauges at all? It's a color HUD now right? I'd love to see pics!

Fbodfather,

Thank you for keeping our beloved Camaros alive, some of us might differ on things here or there, but, rest assured, I think most of us will purchase another Camaro when the Gen 6's are released. The Gen 5 is an outstanding platform (my 2nd LS is being delivered tomorrow...)

Can we please, see a Hugger Orange color option on the Gen 6? I like IOM (next one is IOM) but would love to see a true Hugger Orange, even if it's for only a year or two.

After seeing the '14 K2XXs in person, you'd have to pay me to take a GMT-900 over one.

The current 2010-2013 design is timeless in my opinion. This 2014 not an improvement. Maybe they did this to move the rest of the 13's remaining on lots for 2015.
Three niche/low volume models aren't going to be enough to keep Camaro afloat for two more years.

This will also give GM time to tool up the factory and hopefully get their quality to where Oshawa's was/is, if not better.
LGR isn't tooled for Zeta, nor would it be economically feasible to begin 5th gen production there.

Well I have been into cars since the early 60's, and I can say without any doubt that pictures do not always look as good or as bad as the actual car when you see it on the street. Also I can say there are a few cars that I absolutely hated when I saw them for the first time, but over a couple years they started to appeal to me and I ended up buying one.. Such as the Monte Carlos from the early 2000's and the HHR.

Well, all this bickering aside, the '14s certainly are showing up now. A few dealerships near me show several in transit, and one has a CRT 2SS on the ground with the Recaros!! I'm going to look at it today to see how I like them and if I want them for my 1LE... Can't wait to finally see a '14 in person!

I hope they look better in person, I like the front just not sold on the rear yet. Good to hear they are coming to dealerships now.

It appears that the 2014 will have an Active Cruise Control system. The 3rd picture of the Black SS you can see a front mount sensor. Which means it senses the distance between you and the car in front of you and will modify your speed if necessary to maintain a safe distance. Anyone else agree that is what that sensor is for?

Do you mean the square piece on the passenger side? I think that is for a tow hook.....

I absolutely love the 14. I should have waited and gotten one, it looks more modern. That being said the 13 is awesome too, I love mine.
It's my opinion.

It probably won't, but fbodfather has said to give it a chance and see the car in person as picture's don't do it justice and not to judge before then. So out of respect for him people are going to see it in person.
