Wow. Got my 2011 ordered just in time. Nothing in these lists are making me regret ordering.

It looks like the 3.6 LFX and the LS3 are getting the TR6060. It is still unsure if the SS's M10 gear set will be used with the LFX but it looks like the Aisin transmission production is being affected by the Japan quake.

Although this is bad news for Aisin, this is great news for those who are Camaro enthusiast. Aisin surpassed GM in the transmission department and controls a pretty hefty chunk of transmission production market share. The Camaro crowd is really getting something special with the new 3.6 LFX V6 and the Tremec TR6060 package. Even though the engine is 20.5lbs lighter, the weight could have been gained back with the Tremec, those transmissions are some of the heaviest out there and this specific TR6060 is the lightest 6 speed they have weighing in at 149-159lbs.

The curb weight still reads the same as the last two previous years but I am wondering if the 1SS and 2SS tipped the scales past the 4000 and 3900 pound mark. We will have to wait until a publication weighs the cars, that is, if there is even a V8 vs. V8 shootout this year. Not worth doing a comparison if the results are going to be the same. On the other hand, I see a V6 vs. V6 comparison coming very soon... I still have my money on my favorite this round, as always...

This also means that there will be a slight sales decrease starting now until GM is able to ship and sell the new 2012's unless there are incentives on the remaining 2010's and 2011's. If I were in the market for a Camaro in general, I would keep an eye out for pretty decent factory incentives starting tomorrow.

Edit: Oh, It also means you can order 2012 Camaro's now...
The order information link doesn't work or is it because I was on an iPad? Also what I don't get is why just a week or too ago the ordering was opened for the 2011 Synergy series Camaros.

The link probably doesn't work because you’re surfing on a wireless or 3G network. My iPhone gives me trouble sometimes. As for the 2011 Special orders, there still might be exceptions to the rule. Some thought it was kind of odd that GM were releasing special models at the very end of the model year. They only need to move 500 Synergy Camaro's and that may just be enough to appease those individuals that absolutely cannot wait for a 2012 Camaro and do not want a 2011 from the lot... GM is being kind of weird lately.

The link doesn't work on my desktop either, so I guess it is still a few days to be able to put an order.

There are often many mistakes on the Order Guide, especially early on.

The Aisin 6 speed is junk. Designed for trucks and lacking in refinement.
If the Camaro V6 does get the Tremec 6060 that will be awesome.
it may have a lower tq rating though.
I wonder when Chevy will give us more info on this?
is fbodfather around?

I wish they'd keep the SGM though. I was on the fence with it and CGM. Guess whenever the time comes I'll see about getting the CGM.

Take a look at the 45th Anniversary Edition pictures to see what it looks like

Maybe just me, but I like the idea of having a color that they don't make anymore.

Its a metallic black. I haven't heard of them getting rid of either the current black or cyber grey metallic.

Crystal Red Tintcoat (its replacement) is very similar

Yes, the new V6 will produce 323 hp. It is also 20 lbs lighter than the current V6.

Carbon Flash is a new name for an existing GM color called Black Granite Metallic. I have it on my 2009 Traverse.
