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!

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.

I would take the stripes off altogether or.............

I would remove the silver stripes on the hood but leave the red driver side hood bulge stripe with the "45" on and then have a mirror image one made without the "45" and install it on the passenger side of the hood bulge.
Then take the rear stripes off altogether.

I noticed the LS7 wheels also.

The hood is hideous but the interior doesn't look too bad. Is this only coming as a V6 model?

I wonder if you will be able to get the ZL1 in this edition? Doesn't say so, but perhaps once it comes out.

I just want to know if we have the pcm tuning dealt with yet on the v6's and then I will probably buy one of these.

I am happy no HP changes were made to the SS.

I think some Camaro guys are going to lament the hp and tq being moved higher in the rev range and the fact that headers will no longer be possible.....but on the other hand more power is more power and it will be fun to hold gears and ring this thing out to 7K.

My guess is that most of the FE4 suspension can be easily retrofitted to the earlier V8s and all V6s cars.

Option on 2LT or 2SS.

I would like to see the V6 aftermarket, what little there is compared to the V8, not be further diluted by completely changing everything, but I would also like to date a supermodel and have a 5000 sqft shop to work on and store project cars.

In the long run, this is what's best for GM and the Camaro, so my complaints are rather hollow and my reasons for not considering the 2012 rather shallow (colors, love my SGM). I guess that so as long as they get at least something in the V6 family that they can make a crate for I'll be ok.

All I wanted for 2012 was for my car to transform into a transformer!

Come on Fbodfather! Can we get a little help on that...

Overall I like the changes. I just wish they still came out with a stripped down Z28 to compete/obliterate the Boss Mustang...
