It never ends...

Okay so last week I said I would be getting my 2013 CRT 2LT/RS sometime this week. Well the dealership where i wanted the car sent to could not beat the price that the other one was giving to me, so they said they just can't buy it from them. So now I don't have the car because my mom works until 6:00 pm, and the dealership is two hours away!

But I have been seriously thinking about it, and since the 2014s are rolling their way out, should I stick with my 2013 2LT/RS or get a 2014 1LT/RS? I would have to stick with a 1LT on a 2014 because of price range (under 30k) but which would be the best decision?

And when are dealerships going to start stocking the 2014s for sale? (other than a few orders I assume)?

Personally I like the 13's better, even after seeing the 14's up close and personal. This is a choice only you can make as looks vary from person to person. 14's are on the lots already, just look around.

the 2013? That's what I will get if, I don't get the 2014 lmao. If I have the possibility of getting the 2013 before i see a 2014, I will take it, but if it doesn't happen until after I see the 2014's I will have a decision to make then.

here's a list of what the 2LT has, that a 1LT does not have:

HUD
Boston Acoustic 9 speaker system
XM for 1 year instead of 3 months
Auto Dimming
interior USB
heated mirrors
rear vision camera
rear park assist

Why would you be asking this? Which body style do YOU prefer, your the one shelling out all the cash? I can understand the frustration that the deal didnt work out and you have to wait a minute to get the car because Ive been there myself, but just relax and exercise a bit of patience and really think about what you want to do here. Your gonna be the person driving this car everyday so this isn't a matter I would want an internet forum to decide, your gonna 10 people giving you 10 different opinions. The 2014's are already shipping to dealers, so sounds to me anyways like you should wait so you can see both cars in person. Neither is gonna be a bad buy, so its all a matter of preference. Buy what you like.

I would go for the 2013 2LT. I like the '13 better too and you get more for your money with one.

For instance:
1LT
6-speaker audio system

Sirius XM satellite radio for 3 months
Standard sport cloth seating Luxury leather seating
No HUD available
No auto dimming available
No USB port available
Standard mirrors only
No Rear Vision Camera available
No Rear Park Assist available
18-inch wheels

2LT
Boston Acoustics 9-speaker system
Sirius XM service for 1 whole year
HUD Display (<-This feature alone is why I got the 2LT)
Auto dimming
Interior USB port
Heated exterior mirrors
Rear Vision Camera available
Rear Park Assist available
19-inch wheels


That is for the '13 models of course but I dont see it changing on the '14. I do love the leather, Mylink, backup camera and sensors too. Good luck with your choice.

Love your sig BTW..

what's wrong with getting a second opinion? I can understand if he made a poll and said the winner was going to be his choice, but just relax and exercise a bit of understanding that the Camaro is a car to be excited about and sometimes people want to see different views. Maybe I missed something that others picked up on. Thanks to PoorMansCamaro I learned that the 2LT has heated mirrors over the 1LT.

I know what it has. I just want to know everyone else's opinion. I've seen the 2LT and driven it. It's just fun to have other people's opinion!

It comes down to what you like more but I'm not a big enough fan of the 2014's to be bothered to wait for one. I'm all about the latest and greatest with snowmobiles, jet skis, and normally cars but this time around I'm just to neutral on the refresh to lose anytime driving the car

I have a CRT 2LT/RS. It is great. The extra items are worth the cost. Oh yes and the 2LT also has the ABL on the door panels. I would not have been as satisfied with the 1LT

That's ok, I think it great that it's cool enough to be used by someone else. From my album:




Whatever you get, just make sure it's Crystal Red. They're faster.

I personally find the HUD a distraction. I drove a Corvette with HUD and I found myself watching the display more than the road, lol.

I didn't find it distracting when I sat in it, but I don't know about driving. I think its a neat feature!

I love the HUD, I hate driving cars that don't have it now, it's very useful and not a distraction at all!

Just imagine what your friends will think when you tell them your speedometer is on the windshield.

2LT > 1LT.

...I'm not going to lie... the HUD sold me on the Camaro.

Keep some patience, I know it's hard, but you'll have one eventually.

I like the leather and the ambient lightint and boston acoustics more than the HUD (but it is still a nice feature!)
