Was really hoping they weren't going to go with that steering wheel. I'd be fine with it if it still had "CAMARO" on it, but with that giant bowtie it looks like it belongs on a mini-van or something. Will be the first thing to go when I get my ZL1.

I REALLY want the ZL1 but this car is going to make an outstanding alternative for me if the ZL1 comes in too pricey.

They had that in photos of the 2011 pace car too when they announced it. Probably a PS.

I hate those stupid stripes, what are they thinking??? I do love everything else especially the return of the Camaro badge. Very nice car all around. Hopefully prices for the LLT V6's drop with the introduction of the LFX, I need a new DD.

pricing? a couple thousand at least as an option. plus with all the improvments all models will likely get a price increase....

Yes but I wonder what the standard price increase for each model, specifically the 2ss will be.

I just noticed, the stitching on the seat is White, Blue, Red... I hope they rearrange it to Red, White, Blue for production, it's out of sequence.

Glad to see they are adding the camera option to more than just the ZL1. Not crazy about the center portion of the steering wheel, I like the center of the old style but not the overly chunky outer rim and spokes. Black metallic looks good too. I saw a few people meentioned LS7 concept wheels??? Did I miss something? I hadn't heard anything about that! I think the 45 badges are a little busy (too many) for my taste anyway but cool options and upgrades. Plan on ordering a 2012 early next year, hopefully they have a track pack LS7, that would be sweet!

IMO GM's 3.6 V6> 3.0 V6

With the upcoming revise turbo 4s from GM it makes you wounder what is the point of the 3.0, especialy since it has no advantages over the 3.6 whatsoever, not even in fuel economy.

+12314215465239712904.

The 3.0L needs major work. Peak torque comes at too high of an RPM to offer any fuel economy savings over the 3.6L.

However, I do think it has potential...maybe slap a set of turbos on.
