Called it! If Stryker Blue would have been an option when I got my Camaro I would have had a real tough decision! Offer a nice medium blue.

Well now...


As much as I love my ABM and like that it is rare, I still think a proper blue can be a hit. Stryker blue from the G8 is also my choice! Not too dark, not too light...just a rich shade of blue. Not sure if it was metallic though....hot dang I sure do love metallics...they tend to POP in the sunlight

Thats why I love my ABM...just look at my sig and avatar....still makes me drool.

I thought I was the only one who felt like black wheels looked like a cop car. Maybe it's a generational thing. Most of the younger guys like 'em.

I like the 1LE but will stick with my plans for a 2SS/RS. Gonna stick with an automatic. Done with the shifting. It's a very cool option, however. Lots of people will be happy.

When is the new gen V8 with the direct injection coming out? I'm sort of hoping we'll see that pretty soon. That would give a bump in HP, unless they go to a smaller displacement, and better fuel economy.

I like the touch screen as well. Very cool looking, better than the aftermarket options, I wonder if we can get just the Outer piece without the radio and put our own double din in! That would be very cool!!

Enhanced Voice Control
You can use Chevrolet MyLink's enhanced voice control to find your favorite station or play different tracks from your CD player. Simply press the PUSH TO TALK button on your steering wheel and say, "Tune to FM 96.3" or "Play CD". And the radio will recognize your request and tune to the appropriate station or CD track.

Homepage Customization
Chevrolet MyLink lets you customize your homepage so you can easily access the features you use the most. Up to eight icons can appear on a homepage and you can actually have more than one homepage screen to help organize everything as more apps become available.

Your homepage comes with eight default icons. Each icon corresponds to a different feature, like PANDORA, USB, Phone, iPod,® Settings and more. You can customize this page to help you access things quicker. Simply press the (A) MENU button on the bottom of the homepage screen. Find (B) CUSTOMIZE in the list. Your Chevrolet MyLink system is now in customization mode. Tap the first icon you would like to move. After the system highlights that icon, select the position where you would like to move that icon to. Once you've done that, hit (C) DONE and your MyLink system will place the icons in the right position or swap icons if another one was in its place.

More info from the official MyLink website: https://www.myconnectedradio.com/web/chevrolet/home

this is what the new Equinox has,very nice unit,

I love the blue aspect of my ABM, but not the aqua so much.

I'd entertain getting a new one (I want the updated interior and stuff anyway) if they offered stryker blue or a blue close to it (one without the aqua shade in it), but I'm about to have mine modded the way I want it finally. I'd not want to get rid of it and start over.

i would have ordered blue(actually did initially order ABM)but changed it when i looked at an ABM "HHR" on our lot,did'nt like the green in it,so i ordered the IOM because it was basically a new color,but a med. blue like jetstream or stryker would have had my order if available,

Now that is an interior I can enjoy!!

How close do you think we can get to the Cadillac CUE system for a dash board? That is impressive!!

Did anyone else notice that the redline on the 1LE is 7000 rpm with an 8000 rpm tach instead of the SS's redline. I believe we are in for a pleasant surprise when it comes to this car's performance.

If it's still a generic LS3... I'd be curious what was done to allow that.

Sorry if this question was already asked, but I'm wondering why it has two different wheel sizes if the tires are the same size? Why not put the 305s on the back? Or put the same size wheels so a front to back rotation could be made?

IDK, but I'm glad they are going to make this car, and glad I decided to wait to 2013 model year for mine. Hopefully a nice blue comes back too.

I would conclude that GM is going to announce either another Synergy Series car or the Dusk Blue Edition for the Month of April. Lots of excitement for Chevy next month and with the starting shipments of the ZL1.......... .....and the warmer weather, happy times for all sports car enthusiasts (more for the Camaro people..ssshhhhh)

it seems to me like the way this article reads, the 1LE BASE will be under 40k. will the base include the head unit? if so, what doesn't the base include? and what about the regular 1SS and 2SS, will they be priced similarly to the 1LE or closer to 2012 prices?

last i checked on c5, there is always an abundance of affordability concerns with the camaro lineup. sure it'd be nice to own one with every feature possible, but it's also possible many of you that "wish you had waited" would have waited to only be offered a new camaro out of your price range.

not that my opinion matters in the mix of 15+ pages of comments, but i think the 1LE looks a little dumb. wasn't it the ricers who initially started the whole "let's paint one of our body panels a different color than the rest of the car" trend? and black wheels are generally disgusting if you ask me. the only thing discouraging about this article to me, a happy 2012 owner, is that i can afford the 2013 upgrade such as the head unit and would have preferred that over my 2012's configuration. but the 1LE itself isn't doing anything for me.
