Camaro seems to get Car and Driver excited

I was at the store the other day, and I noticed that car and driver put the camaro on the cover of their buyers guide, on the front page of the coupes category, which I thought was weird, cuz if I recall correctly, car and driver doesn't like gm a whole bunch. so I bought it.. thought I'de share it with y'all

Interesting...they gave both the Camaro and Corvette a 4/10 stars on Consumer Appeal? And why are they rating the V8 at only 395 hp?

It says 422 in the specs area, but 395 in the text. what the hell...dont editors get paid to pick up mistakes like that? also it hurts GM if people think it only has 395

GM was originally throwing around the 395hp number for the L99

even for the L99, the power stats have been out plenty long enough to fix that before the press run. i think it's more that C&D really don't care enough about GM to worry about it.

What is the L99 rated at for hp? I must have missed the update because I thought it was still 395.

Question

Did anyone notice that the Camaro in the fold-out is gray? Is that CGM?

last i checked the L99 was rated at 400hp and the LS3 was rated at 422hp. are these the official numbers or are they still tweaking things? and if not, when will the final numbers on hp and mpg be released?
