Why no 2012 pricing?

I know there is probably no answer for this, but I'm really amazed there is still no pricing for 2012's, considering we're less than a month til production begins. Seems like it was certainly out by this time last year.

Also, why no really good pictures of the new interior yet?

It doesn't really matter, I guess, since my order has already been placed for a 2012 with dealer allocation, but a price would be nice to see. As it is, my dealer just gave me a price based on 2011 models.

...and the dash insert, and the center A/C vents are slightly different.

These pics are from the 45th Anniversary edition but the changes should carry over across all trims. No drastic changes besides the "Love It or Hate It" steering wheel.

That's actually a really good way to refer to the steering wheel.

I'm sure the prices will probably be going up. I remember seeing an article in the paper the other day about Cruzes being more expensive. We should find out soon though.

I had to drop off my Camaro at the dealer yesterday to have a cracked A/C condenser fixed, and sitting right next to a 2011 SS was a new Cruze. Sorry to say this but the new Camaro steering wheel is the same as in the Cruze. Don't like it, but to each their own.

When I ordered my 2011 in May of 2010 there was no pricing until about a week after production started in June.

The door locks on the 2012 are now on each door whereas on the 2010-2011 it was under the radio.

That's great that he'd price it for the 2011, but what about new features and packages like the SRU? I definitely want that on my 2012 but have no idea how much it is. If it's considerably more then the connectivity package then it's a no go for me.

I really need that pricing to come out so I can place an order!!!!

Also, was the rear assist dropped from the connectivity package? If so, how much would that change the price?

I drove a Cruze this last weekend and wasn't a huge fan of the steering wheel. But then I don't own a Camaro with the original version and I don't buy cars because of steering wheels, so I figure I'll get used to it and it really can't/shouldn't be that big of a deal. I've had steering wheels that weren't my absolute favorites before but it's not like that affected my experience with the vehicle in any way. I figure if I can't appreciate the overwhelmingly positive and fun qualities the Camaro has, but instead get hung up on a steering wheel I would have designed a bit differently, I've got bigger problems to deal with.

I can see how one might be glad they bought an earlier Camaro, though, if they like theirs and think this one is less useable.

2012 also has a better suspension package. who really cares about the steering wheel, especially if you already own a 2010-2011 camaro and wouldn't be purchasing a 2012 anyway? i doubt the steering wheel will have spikes on it or be growing poison ivy, so i'm sure after a month or two of owning your car that the steering wheel will no longer be a sore point...if it even takes that long in the first place.

while i will agree the initial look of the wheel is better in the 2011, it does not in any way dissuade me from wanting the 2012 version of the entire vehicle over a prior year version. all around it's going to be a superior vehicle, even if that's just via a suspension upgrade. coming down to an interior aesthetic frustration shouldn't hinder anyone from getting it, even if/when the price does go up.

on another note, i'm predicting tomorrow, the start of june, to be the date that GM posts their prices. seems like a "welcome to summer" kind of thing...

I think a fair guess would be an increase of a few percent over 2011, across all models. Does anyone know the increase from the end of the 2010 MY to the start of the 2011 MY?

My dealer sent me an email today saying my 2012 1SS Triple Black Convertible will be picked up. I am getting more excited by the day. Now if the rain will get out of here in the next 8 weeks I will be even happier.

Thanks for the responses.

Well my dealer just based my order for a 2LT with RS package based on the 2011. Two different dealers told me they expected the usual few hundred dollar increase for the new model year, which wouldn't drastically change what I expect to pay. If the price is significantly different, then I'm going to be in a bit of a financial pickle, but I'll make it happen. I've been waiting for more than a year now for the 2012. The order has been placed with allocation, and there's no turning back!!! Keep that refrigerator stocked for me forum family..lol.
