Exclamation Production Synergy Green Camaro Special Edition - press release and photos

As reported on Homepage Blog.

From Scott Settlemire:

Good afternoon, Camaro Comrades and Firebird Friends!

We wanted you -- our enthusiasts -- to see this first..........
We're showing the Production "Camaro Synergy Special Edition" at NAIAS and it will appear at select shows later this winter and early spring.

From Scott: "...I can assure you that the pictures do not quite do the color justice -- in my opinion, this color is stunning! -- the color accents all of the body lines of the Camaro....and I believe this will be a defining color on the 5th gen when we look back 20 years from now......"

Feel free to share with your fellow enthusiasts, club members, and web-friends!

Al, Cheryl, John, and Scott



The New Green Machine: 2010 Camaro Synergy Special Edition

DETROIT, Jan 14 – Today, Chevrolet debuted the 2010 Camaro Synergy Special Edition. The special edition will be produced in limited quantities from February to May, with pricing starting at $26,790.

“The Synergy Special Edition package is designed for customers who want a unique performance car at an attainable price,” says Camaro marketing manager, John Fitzpatrick. “For under $27,000, Camaro Synergy Special Edition offers standout styling, modern technologies like Bluetooth, and 304 horsepower under the hood.”

The 2010 Camaro Synergy Special Edition is based on a Camaro 1LT, with a 3.6L direct injection V-6, paired with either a six-speed manual or automatic transmission. The powertrain has become a benchmark for the segment by offering a combination of performance and efficiency: The V-6 delivers 304 horsepower and 273 lb.-ft. of torque, and returns up to 29 mpg on the highway.

The Synergy Green exterior color was first previewed at the 2009 SEMA show. In production form, the Synergy Green is accented by Cyber Grey Rally Stripes running the length of the Camaro hood and rear deck. Other exterior features include a standard rear spoiler, and standard 19 inch, Sterling Silver painted wheels wrapped with P245/50R19 tires.
The color scheme is mirrored on the interior, with Synergy Green instrument panel and door inserts. Synergy Green stitching also accents the Jet Black cloth seats, steering wheel, shift knob and center console. The Special Edition also includes the Camaro Convenience and Connectivity Package, with Bluetooth phone connectivity, USB port for MP3 players, and remote vehicle start for models equipped with an automatic transmission.

“Synergy Green continues a long tradition of dramatic Camaro colors,” says Camaro historian Scott Settlemire. “Some of the most sought-after Camaros are first generation cars – those from 1967 to 1969 – in Hugger Orange, Daytona Yellow, and Rallye Green. Just as those colors helped make the first generation Camaro an icon, modern colors like Inferno Orange, Rallye Yellow Transformers Edition and Synergy Green will define the 2010 Camaro.”

That's really too bad you can't get that in a SS package. Looks good though!

It didn't take away ABM. The Transformers Special Edition ended this month and now this will take that over and then something else will take over this synergy green edition.

Not to brag, but my picture of it, and the look of it the film are spot on. That is exactly how it looked at the show.

Looks good.......but I am guessing this will be a test for them too. See how popular such a package maybe. You get the 19" wheels, Conv Package, spoiler and stripes under 27k, not bad.

If sales go through the roof on this edition, than they might have this as a normal package.

Bad way of going about testing, if 20% of the customers are buying V6s and you're testing on a V6 model then they better be prepared to think of 4% sales figures as phenomonal otherwise this package is dead in the water....personally i think it was dead before it left the f*ckin whomb but hey thats my two cents...

I'd rather it be a darker green, although I suppose it's irrelevant for me since I couldn't get it on an SS anyway.

I don't like it and not offering it in SS is an EPIC FAIL IMO. I would like it better if it were a darker green but that's just me and it doesn't matter since I have mine already.

At least it’s not a bad as that horrible pale green color that the Mustang used to have. I actually kind of like this color, but the green interior is what I can’t stand.

I don't like it.

I will always miss a decent blue, like jetstream blue, like Stryker blue, or any blue close to the medium blue of 1969.
