I really like the interior, but i'll never get comfortable with the gauges on the console.

Don't think I'd seen the shot of the key before... looks like a spring-hinged design... very nice. First time I ever saw one of those was a Mercedes key I saw about 10 years ago. Always thought it was a great design.

I love those tires

1) The radio looks like it is moved forward so you can reach it without doing stomach crunches. (I have a flat stomach now after driving a 2001 mustang.)

2) The fat tires on the Camaro are probably base V6 tires. However (me personally), I would drive the V8 Camaro with those exact tires because most roads I have to drive on are under construction and extremely messed up. 18 inch rims could turn into an oval shape if you're not careful.

3) As someone else said, those pics look the same as before. I wouldn't assume anything.

You know what?

To save weight and money, I would have really liked to see GM put the window and side mirror controls in the center console. I've seen that more and more with newer cars and I tend to think it's just wiser to do. You don't have as much work to do by putting the control box in the door, adding the wiring, etc. It's just easier and more cost effective to put it in the center console.

That little switch to the left of the 12 volt power supply (which I think should be hidden......) might be the power window switch?

Not to mention pretty retro to the F-body design.

If you were talking about the switches on the end of the stalk, my wife's Jetta has something similar, and it's used to toggle the little information display between screens.

I was thinking the same thing. Didn't we see some quotes from GM stating that the final interior would look different than the spyshots of the mules?

I'll search when I have some time.

Well I just saw this now..... you guys already filled up 6 pages, LOL!!!!

But overall from these new shots I can say..... I think the interior is just fine.... but that centre console..... I dont like it at all.... that probably the only part of this car that Im gunna have to re-do on my own.

But this Camaro really is gunna be something else inside/out.

Good work GM..... just change that centre console, LOL!

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....
The GTO Judge/all muscle cars were doomed by bad MPG, yes. However, they were also doomed by higher insurance premiums. I don't think the new Camaro is "DOA" if gas is 4.50 a gallon. The old muscle cars got about 8-10 MPG, not 20+ we will no doubt see on the new Camaro. I don't know about the rest of you, but this new Camaro will be my weekend or cruise night car, not a daily driver....especially when it SNOWS!

I would love to see a different center console, and with a nav screen in it. This one is huge and bulky and uses a lot of unnecessary room. I'm not too sure about the speedometer and tach housings, but I don't think those are going to get smaller or change, , but it's not a big deal. I'm sure I would get used to them.

Indeed. It costs less to fuel new muscle cars now then it did back in the day, once inflation and fuel economy has been taken into account. Though that may change at $4.50-$5.00/gallon.

Those on the malibu are pull-type paddles. I thought at first too that you push them with your thumb but those things are just there to let people know which side does which.

mmmm. You might want to check again.
The shift controls on both sides of the wheel do the same thing (there's one on both sides for asthetics, and in case one hand is freer than the other maybe? ). Anyways; on either side: you push for upshift, or pull for downshift.
