The 3.91 s are not going to give much of a performance increase because the 6 SPd ratios are taller and closer. Note that 6th gear is now a .50 than the shorter .57. It will give back some of the mileage lost with the 3.91s.

Cool. Looks like this will be a serious performer. Starting under 40K is really good news. Looks like MRC is out but overall I'm happy. Really proud of how the Camaro lineup is growing and all the improvements being made. It's cool how electric steering is now standard on SS and that dual-mode exhaust is available. ZL1 technology is good for everybody. And for all those people that asked for years for in dash navigation, Chevy listens.

So no ZL1 brakes and no MRC? I can deal with no MRC since a normal performance tuned suspension is preferable to me. However, if it doesn't come with ZL1 brakes, then that's a downer. Its weird because the original thirdgen 1LEs were basically Z28 G92 cars with two differences: no AC and BIGGER BRAKES. Also, for people complaining about options, you could load out the thirdgen 1LEs... There are some out there with leather, power seats, etc. Yeah, it's strange but they're out there.

Still tempting with base SS brakes, but it went from gotta have it to thinking about it...

If I was going to trade, I'd go for the 1LE over the ZL-1. Especially with such a good price point!

I'm saving myself for the 2017 50th Anniversary Z28 though

Just guessing, but maybe with mrc it was too close to the ZL1 on the track. Could be why it doesnt have it. Just a thought.

A real risk. I'd been waiting for a Z28, problem is who knows what the Gen 6's are going to look like. It's going to be very hard to top the Gen 5 look and appeal!

My car will be paid off next March, perfect timing to get a 1LE!

This 1LE Camaro is another kick-ass looking addition to the Team Camaro Family . Very impressed with this new model , and i know all of you will love to get behind the wheel

The new touch screen and dual - mode exhaust are a game changer for the up-coming 2013 model year It is very exciting to be a part of this Team.

True... I have faith though and I've got my 5th gen I'm sure the gen 6 will look amazing. Excepting the late 70's, I've never seen a Camaro I didn't like

Yeah, that's what it says....

If it only comes in a manual that would leave me out, hopefully not. If it is only a manual (and this release would likely mean no 5th Gen Z28) my focus will turn back to getting an SS. Going to see what happens regarding the transmission but looks like a 2013 SS might be in my future as my dream of a 5th Gen Z28 is probably gone!

They must have felt that they were up to the task. Under 3 minutes at VIR can't be done with subpar brakes. Nice 3rd gen by the way.

Awesome. I still think I will be getting a ZL1, but it is tempting to get a 1LE to go along with my 91 1LE.
