OK for sound I guess so. The G6 is a real POS.

SORRY for being so blunt.

The only problem with the G6 is that it's gone so long without a refresh or a redesign. Other than that, it's a perfectly good car, and it sells pretty well too.

Wasn't it introduced in 2004 as a 2005 model . . ? Thats not that long ago, at least for GM's refresh cycle. Sure its not exactly brand new, but its not that old either. I'd say its due for a refresh either next year or the year after.

i doubt it would sound much like an Accord, dont get me wrong i hav a v6 accord and beleive it or not get a handfull of complemets on it. i have full exhaust minus headers (magnaflow mufflers). it sounds deep kind of G35 ish but louder (gruntier). however with the larger displacment i think the camaro would have more of that muscle car sound u get out of say a beefed up mustang v6..... jus my thought.

We've seen pictures of a refreshed model, and it's pathetic. They stuck the G8's grille on, changed the foglamps, and called it a day. The radio's still the same as the one on my '07 Malibu when every other GM vehicle transitioned over to the new GM switchgear in 2008. From what we've heard, the G6 will stay the way it is without a major redesign until 2012, giving it a massive lifespan of 8 years since introduction.

Well yesterday I had a chance to stop by the dealer and they had a couple of CTS's on the lot. Was talking to them and asked if I could just check the engine out and they took me out and let me start it up. Didn't take it out for a drive but the engine revved real smoothly. Window sticker showed 26MPG on the highway. Looking forward to seeing this thing in the Camaro.

I would say the G8 V6 model would offer a decent comparison. I think the rear suspension might be a tad different, but if you're just looking for a ride feel comparison, it'd be the one to check out. The CTS will show you the quality of the V6 the Camaro will have. But it uses a control arm suspension.
