* * SYNERGY GREEN CAMARO UPDATE (Only for the 1LT V6) * *

Out of all Camaro's at SEMA, the SYNERGY GREEN is one that will be slightly modified for production.

Show car includes potential future accessories...

Green accents, stitching...

1LT ONLY! NO RS - stick or auto February until the end of the model year. Emphasis for V6 sales

C&C package

January 14th is the first chance to order - under regular allocation


Other news:

High wing cancelled for 2010

Hurst will be available over the counter BEFORE factory ordering begins

any more greens planned? "maybe"

HUD "maybe"

BLack and DE edition "Had good responses - maybe"


Regarding the 1LT availability of Synergy Green, John Fitzpatrick shared this with me:

We spent a considerable amount of time discussing whether to make the Synergy Green available on a 1SS models. Our original goal was to create a special edition model that would broaden Camaro's reach and stand out in the crowd, while delivering our unique looks and fun to drive qualities at a tremendous value for our customers (with a MSRP that starts well under $30,000).

In the end, the V6 LT model best fit these goals.

I am watching the webcast now. I am very disapointed on no V8 or RS!!!!!!
I think they missed the boat on that one.

When you compare V6 sales to V8 sales, I don't think so...They need to make something appealing about the V6 cars....

There's plenty of lifecycle left in the years to come....Maybe a HUGGER GREEN for the SS....bring back the historic colors for the SS.

Kinda weird that it's only on the 1LT, if I were to get one I'd want leather seats.

Limiting it to the v6 - dumb
limiting to the 1LT - Dumberrrr
Limiting it to the 1LT with NO RS - Epic Fail

Very disappointed!!!!!! I originally wanted a 2SS ABM and that got cancelled. Then I saw Synergy Green and thought that would be a good choice. What a bummer. Now I have to decide on a different color.

Wow. I understand the marketing behind this, but this will turn a lot of people off.

My only guess is that it might be geared towards the young ricer types who want a unique G5 for the look at me and still be affordable. YES? No? Maybe so...

does the no RS have anything to do with the limited RS parts?
I dont see why they dont just let all trims have it.
Why limit it to the 1LT and no RS only? Makes no sense.
Sure if you wanted to target v6s, the specs do that for itself but fine, do v6 only, but no RS = fail and 1LT only is another fail
Im trying to understand why GM would decide on that asnd im drawing up a blank.
I understand about the green stitching and it being exclusive that a 1LT will get green plastic panels but still, having black leather with green stitching and green panels wouldve made alot of people happy. Having the RS option wouldve made ALOT of people happy and having it avialable on the SS would make alot of people happy
The v6 is cool, adding another color to try to jump sales wont make a big difference, especially when you limit it to 1LT and no RS only

stupid move. On the other hand maybe GM wants to test the market for this color before making it for other models.

Chevy is going to have to kick it up quite a few more notches than that - with the new Mustang coming. Does this color look familiar . . . ? j/k
