They reworked the engine. I think its based off of what they did on the 3.0L they introduced a little while ago. It is now E85 capable, weighs less, produces more power, and is just as efficient.

Torque is the same, but peaks 300rpm earlier

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

WRONG, but thanks for playing.

I ordered my 2012 vert from Becky on the 5th of May and got an order number and she called me 3 days ago with an allocation.

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.
