To answer your question a bit better, The manual V6 and V8 Camaro's have LSD, the auto V6 does not, and I not sure about the auto V8

do those words seem like they belong together when talking about a Camaro ...

I'd say that the A6 went without because its target market is not interested in performance, hence no need to spend money on a limited slip.

Whose buying a camaro that isnt interested in performance? Im in the market for an auto v6 and I want performance. The only reason i dont step up to the 1ss is the lack of leather seats. cant buy a sweet new car and have me and my gal sittin on cloth.

but anyway, like i said. Im a person that wants the auto to have that performance. its not practical for the kind of driving i do to have a manual. annd.. its got more horses than a lot of the older fan's gen 4's, so whatevs man.

the majority of people buying the a6 v6 camaro won't be interested in performance, nor will they be on this website. Don't forget we (enthusiasts) are the minority.

I understand, but thats why I specified target market. For everyone like you whose daily drive make a manual annoying and don't want a 1SS, and a 2SS is too much of a stretch for the budget, there are many more who want a cool looking car that gets good mileage that they don't have to shift themselves.

I don't know about your gal, but mine is more impressed from 426 horses than 4 cows.

I do however think the auto V6 should at least have the limited-slip diff available as an option if not standard.

Most people buy (and accessorize) vehicles based on appearance.

Plus, it's not that the auto V6 won't perform well. I suspect that it will perform very well without needing a LSD. Modern traction control and good suspension should make it work well.

In the meantime, an open diff is safer in some situations when the rear could kick sideways from spinning wheels (big difference driving my open diff pickup and my dad's LSD pickup). It's also cheaper, and the auto V6 needs to be cheap more than any other Camaro.

You have a rare girl there. Most are just interested in how badass the car looks, and if they are comfortable in it. (except in rare situations, hence my Ducati) Camaro RS=Badass looks, Leather=Badass comfort

But the point made ^^ on the price needing to be extremely competitive on the Auto 6 is a good one. But as an option at least. Kind of like leather on a 1SS, so I wouldnt be worried about this even. :(
