Other than those smallllllll gripes, this is a huge improvement over the earlier editions we have been seeing. Now... if we could just get past the snoozy look of this test model. SO far, I am just bored with the exterior. I think its the headlights and lack of paint-flare which this body style obviously must have... Colors will make this car or break this car... Too bad gas prices are going to be 4.50/gallon before it hits the market... This car might be DOA if it can't get past that... Remember the Judge...GTO's death brought on by OIL/Gas problems....
Couple questions...1. Why does it matter where the ignition is located?? Or were you looking for a push-button ignition?? Either way...does it matter?? 2. Do you think that this is the final iteration of the production Camaro? I think that it should be pointed out once again that these are EARLY pre-production cars...Recently Scott told us that Camaros were being flown up from Australia so that the interiors could begin getting "texture" as he called it. So, I would venture to guess that those vents ARE last minute-ish...why bother shelling out MORE money just to have perfect looking vents?? The same idea goes for the shifter...And as far as your comment about the "improvements" over the last interior shots we've seen...it's not much different...*just sans tape...* Other than that, the design has remained the same.





And one more thing...I'll argue that if you think that the Camaro will be DOA, because of gas prices...then so will the Mustang and Challenger...

Have you ever driven a car with the gate shifter? I'll be honest with you...if you haven't...it's not that fun. In fact, I don't think it's fun at all...I think that if there will be any sort of "manual" shifting for the automatic...it'll be paddle shifters (the Malibu even has that)...I've never driven a car with paddle shifters...but I have driven one with the gate shifters...and I'm actually glad that this pre-pro isn't showing it...

I agree, I've driven both back when I used to sell cars...I personally couldn't stand the paddle or gate shifters. Give me a good ol stick shift anyday.

Yeah there is really nothing new here. Here is what I think, this is not the new interior or even close! remember we have 4 months till indy much will change. More proof of this is the fact that the stampes are just being finished.


Now my thoughts about this interior stays the same I hate, no wait, if I see that damn radio and A\C control set up in my Camaro I will remove it and smash it to all hell an custom make the concept style myself.

The only thing I absolutely hate about the dash, is how completely bare the passenger side of the dash is, plus that center vent is WAY too wide!! It looks incredibly boring on the right. But other than that, I'm liking it a lot!

PEOPLE my theory is that the Center Gauges will be housed in Black, not the silver you see there. it will still have the same shape without the chrome outlining...


my evidence for such a theory??


well its either that, or GM has decided to Duck Tape the Chrome into place.


did anyone else see the tape holding those onto place?????

On another subject, WTH is this?

Here you go...



They may not be what you would consider traditional paddle shifters...but they are none-the-less. In fact, on Chevy.com they describe them as "steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters."

However, if the Camaro would get this technology for it's automatic...I'm sure they would opt for the pull-type paddles as opposed to these thumb-pushed paddles.

I wonder how many times people have extended their thumb to shift and instead ended up blasting their stereo

Werd....i was really hoping this was a no-brainer given the vette has had push button ignition since '05...

I guess you have to save money somewhere...

the buttons near the gauges on the console are probably the suspension adjustments, and maybe something to do with overall performance modes (sport, etc).

a passenger side display????? interesting.....that hasnt been done before?

interior refinement: I like it overall. details and fit and finish are showing a marked improvement.

EDIT: we have to consider how hard it was to get the shots of the interior. Brenda Priddy & Co are THE spy shot MASTERS!!! holy schnikies.....

reserving final opinions until they hit the dealer floor.

1. I like the interior a lot. Peformance over BS electronic play-things.
2. Passenger side info screen: cool, save money where you can. I change my oil before the warning anyway.
3. Auto "stick" sucks...sorry! Bulky and weird. Won't stop me from buying a Camaro though.
4. All I want to see is speed and tach. Props on keeping those two gages prominent.
5. I like the unique dash. COOL.
6. I didn't like the 4 gage cluster to begin with...but now I do. More props.

I like it and I want to see the manual version.
