I don't see how the V8 will cost under $30,000 AND have 400hp+. The G8 GT costs $30,000 and has "only" 361hp. Why would the big bad muscle car cost less than the family sedan AND have more power? I don't see it happening.

That's exactly what I've been wondering. The G8 GXP is supposed to be $38,000 with 402HP. I have no idea how the Camaro V8's will be priced below a less powerful G8 GXP...

Then, by this logic...there's no way a V6 Camaro can be priced near $20k; the G8 is above $27,000!

I guess I'll find out in 1 days, 2 hours, 20 minutes, and 58 seconds.

got this from http://consumerguideauto.howstuffworks.com/2010-chevrolet-camaro.htm'

Quote:
2010 Chevrolet Camaro Prices: They're a bit hard to predict, what with an on-sale date nearly a year away. But GM has said Camaro will be a premium car, and it won't compete with the Ford Mustang on price. Our guesstimate: The 2010 Chevrolet Camaro V6 coupe will start around $22,000 with the V8 model around $28,000. Convertibles will likely start at around $28,000 for a V6 model and range up to $35,000 for a V8.

Dragoneye I believe that it was you that made several important points in another thread a while ago relative to pricing.

The G8 is built in Australia. It is safe to say that it costs a lot to ship it here from the southern coast of Australia (Adelaide). It also safe to say that the cost of shipping it has not gone down as energy prices have increased.

The other important thing to note is that the Australian dollar recently hit an all time high against the American dollar of nearly 1 to 1. It usually is in the range of one Australian dollar equaling 60 to 70 cents here in the US. So, the recent decline in the value of the US dollar has actually made it cheaper to build things here or in Canada relatively speaking. Its one of the good things about the decline in the value of the US dollar.

The Camaro, at a projected volume of about 100,000 units also has a much larger economy of scale, build more and the price per unit costs less. Components are cheaper when bought in larger volume.

I believe Scott has said that we will not have final pricing on Monday, but I think people will be pleasantly surprised.

I did make some case points, but the ones you mentioned all came from DGthe3. And good points they are!

Despite what Bob said a while back, the car will be priced competitively with the Mustang as per the most recent info that Fbodfather posted up. Besides, nobody here will be upset if they price a 400hp animal near the $$$ of a Mustang GT, will they?

Easy. The G8 is a large car, and traditionally in the American market "bigger" equals "more expensive". Of course that may change quick, but for now that's how it is. Also, being a family sedan, it is quite well equipped, as large sedan buyers tend to place more importance on things like auto-AC, premium leather, and high-end sound systems than pony car buyers (not saying we don't care about those things, but in general they're lower on our list.) Pontiacs are also traditionally priced a step higher than Chevys. Its just the GM hierarchy. Also, I'd say the G8 is more of a muscle car than the Camaro. Muscle cars are the product of stuffing a powerful V8 into what was otherwise a standard family car. The Camaro on the other hand, is a pony car, a small sporty coupe that also happens to offer a V8. Finally, price is not correlated to hp. Its a small factor, not the only deciding factor.

Unless it has changed, it doesn't have to be a Chevy dealer, any GM dealership can do Chevy warranty work. You can even order parts for any GM vehicle at any GM dealership. But like Scott said, some dealerships don't like to do it and get an attitude if they didn't sell the vehicle. I had that problem in my home town. I bought my last Chevy from a dealership in Houston, which at the time was 125 miles from my home town, and took it in for service at my local dealership. They weren't very friendly about working on it. I called the regional manager and talked to him about it and I guess he got it straightened out, because the next time I went in there was a different service manager and they were glad to work on it. I explained that I gave them first shot at selling me one, but they didn't have what I wanted and couldn't come close to the price of the other dealer.

...in fact, you can even order parts for Toyotas at GM dealerships, complete with GM packaging and part numbers:

I do that to myself all the time! lol. Then it makes you feel like you saved money.

I will say, this is the ONE piece that I am truly hung up on. I have seen 1000 pictures, and could look at 10000000 more, but I already know this is one badass car and I love it. but this is the one angle that is the make or break. I do not want the v6, and I know it is gonna be one SWEET v6, but I have never got to own a v8, have a v6 firebird now, and want this to be my first. But if it is some crazy price, I may just have to hold off. I am hoping it is around 30k, I priced the G8 with the 6.0L on GM Supplier and it was 29.5k with my discount. I think some people are right that the G8 would be a more expensive car. It is a larger FAMILY performance vehicle, with all the extras and what not. Maybe I am just hoping since I want the Camaro so damn bad...

Me to since I now know there will be a number of options I wish to add. I think $35,000 is going to be my limit.
