WHAT!!! NO RJT for 2012... glad I got mine in 2011.
Like the idea of the Rear Vision system though.

Mike25, thanks! I saw Becky's original thread but it didn't have a defined date yet.

I'm still waiting on the pricing and order date info for the 2012s so I can place my order and have my Camaro when I get back to the states. This helps narrow it down.

We were told at C5Fest, that "yes" you will be able to update the 2010-2011 models with the new 2012 passenger seat. No word on what needs to be replaced or how much it will be for the retrofit.

Unless GM changes something, this is what Crystal Red Metallic looks like on a Corvette. Not quite as dark as Red Jewel but still a nice red. I would have picked this over Victory Red if it had been available in 2010.

The order guide is out, that gives dealers the opportunity to get educated on the new product changes (supposedly). That means pricing should go public within the week or so. Monday morning perhaps, or at least the beginning of the week. Friday wouldn't be optimal as most dealers take the weekend off. Pricing should go public on Monday, the 16th...

I would ask your dealer to see if orders can be placed now, there is a guy on Camaro5 that placed an order for a 2012 convertible http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=146240

See man, that makes two. The dealers will typically price the vehicle as a 2011 until the prices become official. I orderd a 2011 on 8 March 2010 (Mustang) before pricing was public... Go ask your dealer...

No price yet, closer to the end of the month she said. But I anticipate the price not going up much more than $800 or so and I am OK with whatever the price increase is.

Just to comment on a few questions raised in here...

Door lock control is still available at the touch of the center button. But people asked for door locks - so they got'em, too.

ZL1 should go on sale late this year for an early 2012 delivery.

The best place to get up-to-date ordering information is your dealer. And if they don't know, find another one. The information is available to them.

Good info!

But what I can't seem to find is a picture of the "new" gauge graphics. I see the steering wheel but countless threads talk about redesigned gauge graphics but I have seen no proof of them. Are they talking about the speedo/tach or the 4 cluster?

I'll show you!!

They touched up the main gauge faces with a skinny (Corvette-esque) needle and tighter font so they're easier to read...versus the older 'fat' needle that didn't work very well...

I can't seem to find a good straight-on shot of the guages, so I snagged this one of the ZL1, just don't mind the 200mph mark...Name:  ZL1guages.jpg

how interesting... especially since I was told by a Camaro team member that the order date for 2011s ended around May 18th and I got the same June 2nd date for ordering confirmation on 2012s



start of production on 2012s will be July 18th... I'd be interested to know when your allocation will be here... if its before the end of July, I have a feeling you're going to really love your 2011 Camaro.

No worries there. She knows what I want and I know that it won't be delivered until the end of August or early September.
