Exclamation 2012 Camaro - New Color and Options Info

Yes, it's not yet even 2011, but some info on the 2012 Camaro has already come to light. The 2012 model is due sometime in middle of 2011 (June-July) and will feature the following new color and options.

Note: these may not be inclusive of all the new options/features and do not reflect any potential styling changes. Info courtesy of BeckyD@RodgersChevrolet

  • New Carbon Flash Metallic (aka Black Granite) color (2SS and 2LT only)
  • 45th Anniversary Appearance Package (2SS and 2LT only)
  • 3 sets of 20" wheel designs (likely one for 45th anniversary package)
  • Rear view camera (2SS, 1SS, 2Lt, and 1LT)
  • Suspension system special ride and handling (FE4) (2SS coupe, 1SS coupe only)
  • No mention of navigation system yet? (but a rear view camera may indicate the presence of a navigation screen?)

So is the color a metallic black or a dark gray metallic? When I hear the word carbon, I think dark gray, not black.

Since they mentioned FE4 already, I assume it's the Z/28 suspension available for an SS... pretty cool!

It could be almost anything, from just higher rate springs and struts/shocks to (add) higher durometer bushings, CTS-V type brakes, stiffer sway bars (likely) ... I'll stop now

I just got my 2011 and they are already talking 2012. Those engineers are very busy. More HP maybe.

Sure would have liked to have had the "Dusk" color, or just to have them bring out the "Executive" edition that was displayed at the SEMA show. Nice color, nice interior color and nice wheels.

Carbon Flash Metallic

I think this color was produced before. I'm pretty sure itís the same as Black Granite. My Expedition is the Ford equivalent called Tuxedo Black - in direct sunlight it looks dark gray, with a little over cast it's black. The metal flake really helps with swirl marks. This will be the color of my Camaro - no question.

You are correct, Carbon Flash is the same as Black Granite.

So, just joined this because I was considering buying the 2011 Camaro 2SS/RS -- do I wait for the 2012? It's only 5 months away -- do I wait? I'm not in a hurry to buy, but I really REALLY need to park my butt in a Camaro instead of this POS Cavalier

^^ unless you are very interested in the new color, or waiting for a convertible or something, you should just get a 2011. The next year is always coming.

So in looking at the pictures of the ZL1, it would appear that the dash design will remain the same for 2012. The only difference I saw was the steering wheel (I realize the seude and flat bottom will be ZL1 only).
