I want to buy a 5th gen Camaro. I am torn between v6 and v8! I know either will be bad in winter. This will be an every day driver. I have mild winters but may have to drive in the snow at some time. Is the v8 going to completely land lock me in this situation? Is the difference big enough to stick with a v6? Also what about safety in general?

If driven properly on snowy roads, with correct tires for conditions, it won't make any difference whether you have a V6 or a V8. You have to go easy on the gas and brakes - and the traction control will help a lot. Any car -even a 4 banger with 10 hp - will spin out on you if you hammer the gas. And if there is snow on the roads and your Camaro (any Camaro) has the Pirelli P-Zero summer tires... call a cab. If yours is a DD you should at least get all-season tires and drive sensibly. Then you should have no problem with a few inches of snow.

Let us not forget the 69 'step children' built in '12 / '13 and more than likely '14 .

Any idea when the 2014 non-z28 numbers will be up. Specifically looking for Dark magenta #s. Thanks in advance.

Does anyone know when the numbers for the '14 Spring Special Editions will be available? Or anyone have them yet?

Magenta has gotta be the new rarest regular production color. I don't think I've ever even seen one and it's discontinued already.

Interesting thread. But I can't figure out my numbers. It's a '10 yellow 6.2 manual stationed in the Netherlands, Europe.

The 2010's 1st year Camaros were sequential. After that Buick, Cadallac, Impalas etc were mixed in.
