They are going to keep it! It is going to be rebadged as a Caprise.....

My only request:



This should be on the steering wheel hub and the front grille instead of the gold bowtie.

Oh yeah, just a few other things. I agree a DI 6.2 would be great. If you just do a ratio of displacement to hp the V8 DI would have about 500 HP naturally aspirated with a mild tune. Another thing that I think would be cool would to do a special paint with having the guy from overhaulin' do realistic flames direct from the factory that way. Just a question. Does anybody know if a dealer orders a certain number of vehicles with a special Color they can get the color even though it is not a standard paint color? It seems like it used to be a dealer could order 10 of a special order color to do this.

The Z-28 and the convertible go without saying. I'll keep my 2010 regardless, but it will be nice to see Chevy add those two to compete with Ford's offerings.

Nav, HUD and hopefully they'll have the ABL across teh dash fixed by then (and in aftermarket parts). Yeah, it is not a huge thing, but it will complete the dashin my mind.

Other than that, I don't think GM will need that much of a refresh the first year.

1) Upgraded interior quality - similar to what they did with the '08 Corvettes.
2) USB standard on all trims. My phone has a USB port, it can't be that expensive to add.
3) "Smart" Key. The kind that recognizes the vehicle so you never even have to take it out of your pocket. My friend's $14k Nissan Sentra has this feature and it's super convenient.
4) Different guages. I like the retro look, just don't like the guages.
5) Built-in navigation. I know a lot of people don't care for it, but it should at least be an option.
6) Z-28 package. 1" lower ride height, Bilstein shocks, 20% stiffer springs, bigger sway bars, 3.90 gears, GMPP exhaust, dovetail spoiler.
7) ZL1 package - LSA engine, keep the front Brembos but use the V-6 rear brakes so we can fit some 16" wheels and 29" slicks, shorty headers and GMPP exhaust.
8) RS package should include aluminum pedals, similar to what comes on the G8 GXP.
9) Make Ambient Lighting an option. Not everyone likes it.
10) Now that I think about it, GMPP exhaust should be standard. Track version optional.
11) Direct Injected 6.2L V-8

-Navigation like in the corvette
-Make mail slot functional or remove, it's kind of disappointing
-I would like red stripe and interior options instead of inferno orange, it may
close to some but quite different to me atleast
-Sportier spoiler
-Reduced weight would be nice if possible without raising price too much,
the camaro should outrun the mustang better than it does with the hp and tq
difference that there is, but i know there needs to be a close enough competition
-The LS option seems kinda pointless, i know its to stay cheap but still...
-CONVERTIBLE!!!
-I know he said don't mention it but Z28!!!!!!!
I don't know how valid my input is since i won't be ordering mine until may, but this is what i want and there may be a few more things i could think. Don't get me wrong the Camaro is AWESOME!! but still a few things could be tweaked. Keep up the good work

550HP SuperCharged LS3 or LS7. (or more)

Nav System, and reverse the stearing controls; swap sides, how are you supposed to shift and change your radio station at the same flippin time?)

Bigger, better, faster, more

But seriously...

1. LS7 option. Ah what the hell, LS9. I want the Star Trek "warp" effect when I floor the accelerator. I want my cheeks pulled back with g's.

2. HUD with Navigation! That would be the cat's meow.

3. Rearview camera display or sensor (my wife just dinged the damn bumper! )

4. Smaller rearview mirror (better yet, non-OnStar version). OnStar == evil

5. JL Audio upgrade option (speakers, amp and sub) :updown:

6. Definitely push to start

That is all.

Figure out how to get rid of about 300 lbs.

Relocate the hood latch mechanism and make the mail slot a true cold air intake.

Redesign the rear view mirror so that it doesn't obstruct forward vision.

Redesign or paint the bulging gerry can mufflers under the car so they don't look so bad.

SS badges on the front, sides and rear instead of the bowties for the SS models.

The Heritage Grill should be standard on SS models.

The afterburner tail lights like the concept car should be standard on the SS.

OnStar should be optional.

iPod/iPhone connectivity should be standard on all models.

A new, long term, non "kid oriented" interior and hvac/sound system. By long term I mean aftermarket capable.

When you hit the unlock button on the key fob and hold it so it can make all the windows go down and up.

NO NAV
NO HUD
NO ONSTAR
NO side curtain air bags
NO IPOD crap
NO climate control

If I wanted my computer and home theater in my car I would by the CTS-V.

All I need is the following

LS9
Stronger rear differential
Lightened up by 400lbs
Stronger sway bars
Funtional l-88 hood
Blade style spoiler
Different front seats
And a fuel filler that doesn't look like an after thought(go back to the concept)

T-tops would be nice but make it a one piece removable roof panel(not glass) with a center support. T-top look with it off but solid roof look with it on. I love T-tops but I also love the current roof.

If the 2010 had HUD, I'd buy one right now. Hopefully they'll add one or more of these so I can get one next year:

HUD
Smart key / push button start
Nav

And if there really is a Santa Claus:
All wheel drive
Night Vision

A better navi system! More ambient threater style lighting, and floor lighting, I don't want it to look like a disco tech but I know the mustang has alot of ambient lighting and I kinda liked it. Also I would like more touch screen options even a touch to start system. I don't mind the switch blade key style only because I have the excuse that like the ol' school cars of having to crank the car on, instead of touch a girly little button. But, GM says they are making an ol' school car for the modern driver so, that means latest technology is required. Also more customizable options through GM, like the bowties, the grill, more wheel options, somewhat like the Scions offer when it comes to customizing through the makers. I know its not a toy but it helps us individualize our cars more.

If you want ALL WHEEL DRIVE buy a Subaru.... It's hard enough trying to keep the muscle cars alive we don't need to give the white collar boys at GM a reason to turn the Camaro into a hatch back cross-over rally wanna-be eurotrash car.
