Video: Kelley Blue Book Drives 2010 Camaro V6

Hey Guys,

I work for Kelley Blue Book and recently had the chance to drive one of GM's 5th gen V6 test mules. Even in pre-production form the new Camaro is impressive. If you are interested here's a link to the video we shot.



Thanks

Doesn't work for me. I get to about 12 seconds and it freezes every time. Even on YouTube's site.

EllywnX,
That's odd. It seems to be working just fine for me. Anyone else having problems?

The vid worked fine for me. The V6 is getting great reviews from all around the net, I think the only thing the V8 doesn't have going for it compared to the V6 is price and fuel economy.

Yeah. 21" wheels from the dealer have been known since the reveal on 7/21.

I'm just glad to see that they stuffed a camera guy in the backseat with someone sitting in the front passenger seat. That means my kids will fit just fine.

LS FE2 package? drool...

The rear seat space does look bigger. Still hard to tell about legroom. Very nice video thanks.

Kinda random but does anyone know how tall the driver is? He seemed to fit pretty well with room to spare even, so hopefully he is about like me lol.

kanys,

I'm 5' 10'', although I apparently have a long torso (probably too much information), so headroom is sometimes worse for me than it should be. I fit quite comfortably in the Camaro. My camera guy, Mike Delano, fit comfortably too.

Overall the cabin is a tighter than Challenger but still plenty roomy. The only gripe I have from the driver's seat is a colossal blind spot thanks to the wide C-pillar.

So the paddle shifters will only let us upshift? The downshifting will still be automatic? Kinda bummed about that.

Other than that interesting review; it was nice to see the engineers get to do a lot of the talking (even if they were only repeating info we already knew).

The blind spot just has to be there or else it would kill the body design. As long as you are aware of it you can be defensive about it. The back window view does remind me of the 1st and 2nd gen.

How was the lower back support of the seats?
