I'm wondering the same thing....HP is up for the V6 but no mention of the TQ has me thinking it's the same.

Overall, nothing over the top, but a good "midlife" refresh of the interior. I like the 45th Aniv stripes...nice color and design combo. I'd still prefer "camaro" in the steering wheel instead of the Chevy Bowtie.

My only question now is are those 45th specific wheels?

Overall, makes me somewhat glad I had to wait for the 2012 model year.

I am in love with the anniversary package. I wasn't sure about the stripes at first but from the time it took me to find a larger computer screen than my ipod, it grew on me. I really hope I can pull off a miracle and get a 2012 model if not the anniversary edition.

If any of you are considering getting this one, I wouldn't be pulling that stripe off. As a 45th anniversary car, it certainly is a unique one! We all know that GM isn't exactly a brand known for it's subtlties, but the stripe is a part of that package. The 45th only comes around once!

But as for the wheel. With the exception for the fact that it's smaller, with a flat bottom... yeah, not exactly sporty. My favorite part about the 2010 wheel... it says "Camaro" across the center! Aren't the exterior bowties enough??
lol

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.
Remember the SS fasica saga?! LOL

I love the new IP and interior minus the steering wheel. Love the rear view camera.
Love the interior for the 45th.
Wheels will grow on me, I know theyre similar to the LS7 concept but those looked bigger and beefier, not sure if its just the pics throwing me off.
Love the granite black.
Love the V6 upgrade but now im afraid whether were going to see the aftermarket stopping on the LLT
Way to go GM
Where do I sign up for the power passenger seat?! I wish we could get that for free :(

I like the interior changes. I'd get used to the steering wheel. The hands-free BT buttons are hard to reach without taking your hand off the wheel on the current models.

Is there a change to the rear bumper below the license plate? I wonder why the SS or at least the L99 didn't get a slight HP boost this year. I mean why not show up the Mustang GT?

The body color shark fin is a good idea. black works with my color scheme, but not with most other colors.
ABM was soo damn sexy!
It was soo sexy that GM got sued BIG for distracting too many people and causing accidents so they had to discontinue it :( Hence the bailout plan because the government already sued them big :(



lmao but seriously, I miss ABM. Hydro Blue?

Glad to know that those of us that bought the RS package now get to see some of that on normal non-RS Camaros. It would be nice if GM could not put limited/special options on year and then make it standard the next. It's like giving the former the finger -- like the Synergy color

I like my stock wheels better
the dash isn't that significant of a change
the horsepower upgrade is nice but 11hp isnt enough for me to need to upgrade
rear view camera is a nice upgrade,we have it on equinox and it is nice
not liking the steering wheel

all in all i will keep my 11
still love the car though

hmm. i think the interior is awful. dont like the steering wheel or the seats. those big flat leather spots will show wrinkles quicker than the perforated leather seats i have now. i guess after having the orange interior i just dont think there will be an interior i like better especially the grey plastic on the doors (yuk!). rims maybe even though they look more difficult to clean and stripe package maybe but only cuz its an anniversary edition. i do have a 25th anniversary and it would be cool to have 2 anniversary cars twenty years apart though.

Following a months-long wait, I am sitting here in dreaded anticipation of confirmation that our Red Jewel convertible order will not be filled, and this pops up on my screen. Looks good, but another black interior? Hasn't anyone in GM driven a car on a sunny day?

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.
