Ok, so peak torque stayed the same, just 300rpm lower @ 4800, and the HP is now 323 and 300rpm higher @6800.

Would have loved to see a bump in torque. Interested to see if there is much of a difference with the peak torque at a slightly lower rpm.

That's a very disappointing number. Though it is at lower rpms.

Any better views of the "new" rear spoiler? Looks basically the same to me???

If it looks cooler I may just swap it out on my 2010.

Overall, I like the 45th - and the new V6. But not enough to trade in my 2010. She is irreplaceable .

Maybe I'll consider a 50th anniversary in 2017 to add to my garage.

Really liking the new black exterior color. Also think the silver rings around the DRLs adds a nice touch. Love the new panel across the passenger side dash with the stitching. Wish I could have that on my 2011. Updated gauges look a little cleaner. As for the steering wheel, I actually like the current one. Although, as one poster mentioned, it is tough to reach the innermost buttons without taking your hand off the wheel.

Overall, great improvements. Almost makes me wish I waited a few more months (just got my 2011 2 weeks ago).

wtg GM, definitely an improvement, just need to bring back another shade of blue or green, and choice of different rims. 45 stripe needs to be an option of red, white or blue(maybe a combo?). I can hear people saying, "Does that thing have a 4.5L engine?"..But the emblems about a 'nose' emblem?

..45th convertible = sweet

Yes.. I second that.. I'd like to see a different Green/Blue.. My GF really wanted me to buy a 2011 SGM SS.. But, I refuse to buy a color that was a special option only on the model year prior... just seems rude to those that spent the extra money for a limited run.

Overall, decent refresh , but whats up GM? Why is there no 3.73 gear option? Also I was hoping for a better Wheel/Tire combo for the FE4 suspension, but oh well. Still great job with the V6.
