Thumbs up Camaro engineering and design is wrapping up! Entering production phase.

Quote:
The most recent project, following the completion of the VE Commodore, was the development of the Chevrolet Camaro to be built in Canada.

Mr Mooney said that as the engineering development for the Camaro winds down, "our next-generation project won’t be far away".

"The Camaro project is now slowing down because they are now getting into production. All the heavy engineering work is being done as we speak. The design work is pretty much done," he said.

Well, If that's true, then I think we can start expecting some more info Very soon, like, within months!

I heard somewhere that there'll be something on the production version by Christmas (December)... Hearsay, but if they really are starting to organise production, then maybe not too much hearsay?

I have a good feeling about January....very good feeling. That'll be three years in a row they've had something Camaro at NAIAS. Just think about it. Two years from the day the bring out the first concept model. A year and a half to get a mock production model built. I bet they show the production model. After all, we've heard Bob Lutz say he's seen the production model and he couldn't tell the difference between the two (concept vs. production).

I agree with you Tag. I think we'll see it in Jan. Not soon enough for me, but at least it's something to look forward to.

Dang, that is way !!!!!!

I just wish the Maro wasn't gonna be a year behind the Challenger.

Here's hoping that the General is keeping a BIG secret from us, and the production starts in line with the Dodge.

But I'm not betting the farm on it!!:(

Regards to ALL!!

I'm betting that towards the end of this year we'll get "rumors" that there'll be a production model at NAIAS, which'll amp up the attendance to the show. Then...it WILL be there, and everybody will cheer, and laugh, and cry again, just like in 2006.

Here's how i see things happening:
The production camaro will be at the detroit autoshow,
the different types of camaro offered and where they are relative to each other (SS, Z28, etc) will be released around the same time. The engines will be likely announced after the engines for the challenger and mustang are known.

I just wish they would put " build your camaro" on the chevy website so that we can see what options it has and all that. By the way ive read in several magazines that there is gonna be a v6 which will be 21k - 24k(all options). A standard V8 SS which will be around 28-30k (equivelent to mustang GT). and the SSR which is like the shelby mustang will be 35k or more. The SSR will have a 500hp plus engine.

I want to see the options!! I want to figure out what I can afford! And we need a release date!!

Road and track, motortrend mentioned it.

Also, go to chevy .com and look at the "performace" part of the camaro page. It says the V8 standard will be 400hp.

Oh and i forgot the Z28

You are reading stupid ass magazines then.

The SSR is already taken by another vehicle in the Chevy line. Not to mention, its a stupid name.

I think it will be
Base V6
Base V8 (Z/28)
Hi-po V8 (SS)

It is illegal for a dealer to take a deposit for a car that doesnt have a price or isnt on the market yet.

So yes, that would be a rumor.

I have to agree with ya on this....it just makes more sense to stick to "tradition" since the concept is sort of based around the 69.
