I wont go as far as saying I dont love my Camaro anymore,


these new changes are almost too much to overlook...

WOW - I think I need to consider swapping up to a 2012...glad I didnt do anything motor-wise to mine yet. I can just swap my wheels on to the new one

Best thing I have read on here this year!!!!!!
You might have to do that every year!

I like the stitching on the seats best, along with the Camaro tri-color emblem making a comeback.

Love it all but the stripes.

A lot of nice improvements there - looks to be a little leather in the dash, power passenger seat, painted shark fin, wheels, steering wheel seems to blend in nice with the interior, improved SS suspension... I like all that.

But the stripes? those stripes will not be on mine. Hopefully the SS 45th version will have a different stripe package.

Love to see a Crystal Red Tintcoat without those stripes. That color has always looked great on Vettes.

Looks like I am good for a 45th Anniversary Camaro Convertible I think I will stick with the 2LT/RS and not opt for the SS.

Oh Becky I sent you an email on what I want to order from you

2010 2LT/RS, 2001 Z/28, 2014 Impala 2LT

Probably won't be many power boosts to the SS until the Gen V V8s arrive.

As Fen stated... it does sound like GM is doing a good job of listening to the public and not just sitting in their studios with the blinders on. Pretty exciting times and you know that each year or so we are going to get a new surprise... just when you think it could not get any better out comes the new and improved Camaro. Z28?? I am a dreamer... one of these days maybe.

Anyone want to pay my three kids College bills so I can buy me a new Camaro? I have a feeling it will be a while before a new Camaro ends up next to my 69 RS.

Rock on Chevy!

This entire paragraph... all changes that YOU guys requested. Minus the steering wheel, which I think too many automotive press members complained about.

Just goes to show that GM DOES listen to their customers.
I don't think anyone wanted a camera in the mirror. They want it in a touch screen nav system like just about every other non-GM car has an option for.

Well, I'm not crazy about the interior changes. I'm glad I ordered my 2011 2SS/RS.

But..... It would have been nice to have that SS suspension option

No - it isn't the same exact wheel and we DID listen to our customers thru the Disciples.

Keep one thing in mind:

When we change something on a Camaro:

50% love it

50% hate it

...........and 85% of those who hate it like it or love it 6 months later.
