Just got done test driving a V6 coupe. Damn, the DIFFERENCES they've made in this car are UNREAL!!

I'm just waiting for the new verts - I'm almost paid to the point that I won't be in negative equity when I trade mine in, so I'm getting another V6 Vert...

The price is WORTH it!

Woah

My 2012 isn't going anywhere. Right now I would only trade for a Z/28. I am also going to be working on getting a new Silverado in a few yrs

Here in Canada, back in 2011, my Vert was at $53K +13% tax. That's close to $60K. However, as i do with all my car purchases, i bought mine used (3yrs old) but only 16000KM for $23K less. Could have gotten it a bit cheaper if i waited a bit but found the color and options i wanted. Can upgrade a hell of alot for $20K!

Prices for the 6th Gen. Convertibles are considerably higher than the 5th Gens were.

For me, it wouldn't make a lot of financial sense to trade my 2011 2LT RS in toward a 6th Gen. at this time. Although my 2011 is paid for, it only has 7k miles on it. The trade-in would probably be somewhere around $20k-$22k and being free of payments was my goal and that'd leave more to finance than I'd be comfortable with. Having a low mileage, fully paid Camaro convertible is a sweet situation to be in.

Here is the Camaro 6 2016 Camaro Convertible pricing thread:
http://www.camaro6.com/forums/showthread.php?t=433786

1LT (4 cyl): $33,695
1LT (V6): $35,190
2LT (4 cyl): $37,795
2LT (V6): $39,290
1SS (V8): $44,295
2SS (V8): $49,295

I got my 2012 1SS ordered new for $36,540. Damn near 8 grand more than my car in 4 years. Granted, updated everything but not worth it to me. Sorry GM, with your history of top problems on the 5th gens, and the drastic price increase, you lost a sale on a new one. If I were to get one, I will pick it up used in a year or two when I can get it for around 30K.

Keeping mine for sure. I wouldn't be able to afford one even relatively new with the prices and tax in Canada. I did drive by a 2016 in the dealer lot yesterday and must say I was surprised how good it looked in person v.s. photos. Still, it will be mimimum 3-5yrs before I even look at one in hopes that the re-sale price is more reasonable.

I pulled out the sticker on my 2014 2SS vert:

Base=$42,255; Dest = $995. = $43,250

2016 2SS + Dest = $49,295

Or...

+$6,045 which is...

+14%....gulp.

And it's worse on the 2LT convertibles. From 2015 to 16 the price change isn't horrible, until you realize there is no HUD or other electronics, you have to add the package for $2800 and another $1800 to add the V6. Makes a 2SS convertible a much more attractive choice, since almost everything is already in that price. The real selling price of my 2015 2LT V6 was 36500, and I was able to get the 2SS to the same price, but without the RS but adding the polished wheels. Granted that was a year end lot clearing price plus private offer, but my other choice was to wait 6'ish months for 2016 convertible and drop 8 - 10 grand more for a V6 car.

Much less even want that. True muscle car people dont even like v6's... a four cylinder... I know Im young and whatever, but where is this world coming to. A four cylinder muscle car. If it werent for the 33k price tag a bunch of (other) young fellas are going to be putting fart cans on these cars. Dual fart cans...

Chevy must be proud of their shit.
This is almost as rediculous as a 75k suburban. If the 1LE makes a debut will it cost around $55k? What about a ZL1 vert, close to 70k or above? Nope, wouldnt buy it! And if a Z/28 costs nearly the same as a Z06 is sure as hell better beat them in every way if you expect someone to buy it. Hopefully over the first 3 years in production the price drops.

This world is coming to....V8s regulated out of existence. You young folks gotta quit voting for people who institute a 54.5mpg CAFE.

Expensive GMT 900s? I found a 2007 Tahoe with only 55,000 miles and a cherry interior for $21,500. Had to put another two grand into it to refresh tires, shocks and solve a stubborn CEL but I love it and consider it to be the best used car I've ever purchased.
