1. Competition mode/key like the Boss Mustang with upgraded tune
2. Integrate the mood lighting in the doors into the dash also
3. Ram air package option
4. Little/No cost option alternate wheels other than different shades of clear, not many, just one or two more factory options not listed as "upgrades"
5. Full size spare option for SS (I don't mind taking it out if I ever want to race)
6. Integrate halos and daytime driving lights for RS package
7. Instant gas mileage instead of estimated average, or both
8. Disengage factory A/C compressor when over 1/2 or 3/4 throttle
9. Alternate color HID by push button, possibly interior lights also but only for cool factor.
10. Retractable 40mm automatic cannons and smoke screen...don't ask.

Oh yeah, I'd love to see a V6 turbo/supercharged package with a stiffer suspension, like a 1LE V6 that racks up close to 400hp, but that comes under the cost of a comparable SS as an option to get a decently fast car that handles well w/ good fuel economy and lower insurance rates. Just an idea if it is feasible. Has me wondering what impact it could make on the market...

Here's my list. Sorry if they have been said before, I'm fairly new to the forum.

1: Driver Profiles / Memory Seating/Mirror positions/Radio station favorites/Car Phonebook. Have them linked to an individual key fob. IE: Driver #1 presses the unlock button on their key fob, then seat/side mirrors/radio station favorites all adjust to their preferences. Same for Driver#2

2: Adjustable seat belt anchors. Tall people end up getting their necks chaffed due to the seat belt. Yes, I know the seats have a loop for this, but the crappy magnet that holds the loop down doesn't cut it.

3: A more aggressive tune for the automatics.. someone driving an automatic doesn't always mean they lack a desire for an aggressive driving experience.

4: T-Top option?

Forced induction for the v6, its already been done with the twin turbo'd Leno Camaro. Would like to see a kit (maintain warranty) that can be put on LLT / LFX motors, turbo or S/C.

Thanks.

This is a great idea GM, to ask the fans about what they would expect in the Camaro!!!
My suggestions to make a better Camaro from an already breathtaking sports car would be:

5th gen
  • Bigger sun visors
  • Real Navigation/Info Center with apps and all connectivity the technology has to offer these days
  • On Star Delete option
  • 3rd brake light on rear wing, 4th gen like
  • SS Functional air scoop
  • Memory seats
  • Dual climate control
  • Start/Stop push button
  • Side mirror signals (arrows)
  • Redesigned cup holders with Hot/Cold option
  • 275/315 F/R tires option or all 275 option
  • ZL1 style wheels option
  • More interior colors
  • Better quality interior materials
  • Camaro, Camaro SS, Camaro ZL1 logo on steering wheel
  • Black bowties instead of gold
6th gen
  • T-Tops and/or Targa
  • More Backseat and Trunk space (3-4" on the back seat would do wonders)
  • Better visibility (keep the overall exterior look, maybe with thinner pillars and more glass)
  • Lighter

This is what I have for now... Again, thanks to all for a great forum!!!
I know this is an old thread and it will not matter much now, but after I owned my 2012 2SS for a little over 7 months, I HAD TO GO BACK AND MAKE CORRECTIONS:

5th gen
  • Bigger sun visors - TURNED OUT THEY ARE BIG ENOUGH AND ACCTUALLY LOOK STYLISH AND SLICK
  • On Star Delete option
  • Dual climate control
  • Redesigned cup holders with Hot/Cold option AND OUT OF THE WAY PLUS SOME SPACE FOR CELL PHONES EVEN WITH THE VINTAGE GAUGES PACKAGE
  • ZL1 style wheels/TIRES option - FOR AUTO ALSO, NOT ONLY 1LE
  • Better quality interior materials - MY 2012 2SS HAS SOFT TO THE TOUCH PLASTIC AND LEATHER PACKAGE, SO IT REALLY LOOKS NICE
  • Camaro, Camaro SS, Camaro ZL1 logo on steering wheel
  • BETTER PAINT/CLEARCOAT
  • LESS WEIGHT
6th gen
  • T-Tops and/or Targa
  • More Backseat and Trunk space (3-4" on the back seat would do wonders)
  • Better visibility (keep the overall exterior look, maybe with thinner pillars and more glass)
  • Lighter

I TRULLY LLLLLLOOOOVE MY CAMARO, WHAT A GREAT CAR!!!!!!!!

Please don't take this the wrong way.................................

But a place for your cell phone,cooled seats,front camera,etc,why don't you go buy a Cadillac.Also you want stuff added and a weight reduction to top it off.

So very true, nice stuff and performance don't always go together, well they do sometimes, but it costs more than a Camaro

I know I may be blasted for this but. Why not make the Camaro a two seater and drop all that excess weight of a back seat that does not get used anyway?

That's called a Corvette. The camaro will always be a 2+2 car.
