When will the SS be reviewed?

Have there been any set dates, timeframes, etc?

The Pre-production V6 reviews came out of thin air...It'll probably be the same, here.

I expect to see full-blown V6 cars, and V8 cars being reviewed very soon...there's only 2.5 months left till they hit showrooms!!

I remember seeing that they'd have reviews in December. Not sure where I heard/read that but pretty sure that's what they said. And since I doubt they'll do it right at Christmas, expect them within the next couple weeks.

Just as soon as the mags can get their hands on one. Hopefully this month. We are due for another treat before Christmas.

Im not sure if anyone caught this, but in the newest review of the G8 GXP, it clocked a 4.5 0-60 run.

now the SS camaro has a weight advantage and a power advantage over the GXP, so im thinking a 4.3-4.4 is entirely possible.

What did it run in the 1/4 mile? Also, was it a stick or an auto?

We must remember that gearing is better in the GXP though .. so even though we have a weight advantage .. I'm not sure how much better it will run .. should be a bit better though ..

With a manual it stands to reason you could pull off a sub 4.5 0-60 run.

Please don't misunderstand my next observation, but I've seen many 2.73 LS1 cars run every bit as quick as 3.23 cars - well, when they were mostly stock. I gotta' wonder when it is running higher gear ratios actually net increases in performance. I've read many articles and posts where there was little to no increase in performance from 3.23s to 3.73s. Maybe that just wasn't a big enough jump in ratio - I don't know, but hopefully, the advantage of the ratios in the GXP aren't going to be that much better than that of Camaro.

If the GXP ET is fairly accurate then the SS will defintely break into the 12's bone stock...this is good news, because with DR and full bolt-ons, it should be an 11 sec car or awful close...just hope the MPH is there with the ET.
