Ordering, Allocation, and Pricing News....Your one stop thread.

Here's what I know:

Ordering starts October 13th.

Allocation will be known on October 13th as well. Dealers will be getting ordering guides to assist in the process...

Prices will be made available after January 1, 2009. (I won't get into the guessing games.....)


This is NOT speculation.

This IS however, (per GM's law) *subject to change


Thanks for YOUR support! Thanks for sharin' the CAMARO LOVE!

In other words, do not listen to any claims from dealers or individuals who claim to know pricing.

pricing THAT much later than allocation & ordering kinda sucks - but itll be worth it in the end i guess.

18 days - ordering...then 2.5 months - prices....then 3-4 months and we'll have them!!

I was going to ask the same thing. Has it been confirmed that we can edit our orders after pricing is announced? I don't want to order 21" chrome wheels only to find out in January it is a $2,000 option (that's an exaggeration, but you know what I mean).

BTW-Long time reader, first time poster. You guys are awesome, thanks for all the info over the past few months.

yes ftizpatrick made clear that because the orders now are only to help determine what parts they need on hand that you will be able to change your order once you discover pricing.

makes me sad though considering that they said they would try to have it by oct 13. if it was close to get it by then why do they need to bump all the way back to Jan....

I would like to place my order in october, but im scared that they will see how many people are placing orders without even knowing pricing and then charge more than they had originally planned.

When you place an order when is it sent in to be built at the factory? Like what if you place an order and you realize you cant afford some of the options that you wanted, can you change something?

They would have to let you change it. I'm sure there will be an announced date for when orders will be sent to the factory. Once this happens, your order is probably set in stone.

If they were allowed to take orders before prices were announced and then disallowed changing or canceling of those orders, there would be an uproar.

Again, this is just my guess.

All this weighting. There is a freind of mine out here that was going to buy the camaro but this one issue on getting the price has him changing him mind. He is now going to be getting the shelby gt500 when we get back. I told him that if he weights for the new one to come out in the fall of 2009 he might as well weight and stay on for the camaro. Hee said that GM has had three years to get this small issue out of the wat. If they cant fix that now then they really dont have there prioritys right.

no, three years is way too much time to make an absolutely perfect car, they sure don't have their priorities right (insert sarcasm alert)

and justfor future reference weight (how much something weighs) wait ( as in you wait a long period of time for something worth it, like the camaro)

Scotty-
Have you heard any of this from GM (other than the Indy folks) ? I went to 3 different dealerships yesterday, and they were all dumbfounded by it. I wasn't surprised, but it would be nice to tell them where to confirm with GM. None of them would talk specifics with me because they thought I was coming in with some crazy internet rumor.

I guess im just nervous, I know i am getting what i want and the options i want no matter what, i just like to be prepared and know how much i have to save. Id just be scared that February rolls around and i dont have enough money saved for a downpayment.. then what do i do? and we are all guessing about these prices, what if we are waaaaaaaaaaaay wrong? This is my guess

LS 22,000
LT 23,500
LT2 25,500
RS on LT2 28,500 ( I think a fully loaded LT will have to be cheaper than base ss)

but what if they charge another 1,000 for automatic transmission?

ugh... this is stressin me out.

My wife knew a guy several years ago that ordered an S-10 from a dealer here in town. Once the truck came in the salesman called and told him that there was another customer that was willing to pay more for the truck and that he needed to come up with more cash if he still wanted it. I'm hoping this is an isolated incident? Anyone else heard of something like this happening?

Wow, I can see this becoming an ugly situation when pricing is released. I'm not saying that Chevy will overprice, but lots of people ordering between 10/13 and whenever pricing is revealed will have different expectations of how much they are spending.

I hope Chevy isn't making the assumption that people who order in October don't care how much they're spending...

That is odd - in the Corvette ( a Chevy, after all ) world
there is an event code

2050-Order changed

- Ray
I wonder why these Camaro orders cannot be changed -
with months & months between order & build ?????

if we can't change it (which seems slightly unsettling) can we @ least have the option to cancel our order if it ends up out of our price range?
