At least it's not handicapped in the aesthetics category. In the Mustang world, it's obvious to anyone that you've got a V6.... and Ford V6 is anything but respectable. I think you made the sensible choice.

This may be hard to believe, but the "why did you get a V6" comments scenario never even crossed my mind. I guess after driving SUVs and family cars for so long, and waiting so anxiously for this car to become a reality, I never even thought about it. I was just happy to be gettign a really nice Camaro.

BTW - day two of ownership, and two more people asked the magic question. Ugh

The V6 doesn't necessarily have "plenty of power". Just because it has 304hp doesn't mean it's quick. It's gotta lug around all that weight.

0-60 in 5.9 seconds is not quick

the word quick can mean many different things quick as in pushes you back in your seat, quick as in acceleration

Yeah, roughly 6 seconds to 60 is slow

Quick is relative. Most people would agree the V6 is no slouch performance wise.

Besides 6 cyls... and even 4 bangers.. are part of Camaro heritage from the past.

The story of the Camaro is not just winning races and drags. But as a daily driver for folks in rain and shine. Year after year and brining you and yours home safe and sound.

Isn't there a Mustang forum somewhere online? Look! I think I hear your buddies calling you. I think they want to know what the heck are those halo eagle eye headlights and why are they approaching so quickly, OMG!

Yep, a Ford guy that also owns an IOM 2SS/RS M6. And just because I'm a Ford guy doesn't mean power-to-weight ratios and torque don't exist.

You mean the Halos from a 2LT? Oh that's nothing to worry about, it's only a V6.

Why would team Fordpower buy a Chevy Camaro?

The last time I checked Ford made a GT500 Cobra, Mustang GT, etc.

Lol just because I'm a Ford fan automatically means I'm not allowed to buy a Chevy? I guess it's wrong to like two different muscle cars now. . Ignorant comments rock!

Why would you own such a massive boat of a vehicle?

In all seriousness, I think it's cool that you can look beyond the fanboyism and appreciate the rival vehicle. You do seem offended at every pro-Chevy comment, expect it... it's a Camaro forum.

yep... and some times all the power in the world doesn't help...



I'm a Mustang guy... and I'm a V6 guy... but Ford screwed up the rear completely on the 2010... and missed the boat by deciding to put 3.7 in the 2011 instead of the Ecoboost, which would have rocked... I went with the 2010 Camaro... 2LT RS.. and as big as a boat as it is it still beats the current Ford 4.0... and trust me... I know the 4.0...

I really DON'T care if the Camaro I'm driving is real or fake... I just can't stop driving the damn thing!

Not every pro-Chevy comment...it would be simply inane to expect Ford sympathy on a Camaro site. I just get a laugh at pro-Chevy comments that don't take into account actual facts, let alone intelligence and common sense. Saying a V6 Camaro will beat a Mustang GT, for example...that's just silly.

Hey guys. I'm new to the forums, so bear with me. I ordered a Rally yellow, 2LT RS pack 3 weeks ago ( i know it's gonna be awhile!) I've driven a V6 and I was really impressed with it. Right now I'm driving a 2007 Mustang GT and if no one buys it from me I'm gonna trade it. I've never owned a Chevy, but will be happy to. Here's the thing, an SS is awesome no doubt, BUT, I can't afford it. While my Mustang has 300 horses (on a good day), the 2LT Camaro will more than likely come out better in terms of power (I'm pretty sure thats true). It's roomier than what I drive now And I can always save $$ and drop in a V8 and/or do some other work to it. But as it stands, the V6 is no slouch. I know for a fact that a v6 can hang with my Mustang and then some. (All depends on who's driving...) Pay the haters no mind...
