The 2010 model year proved to be a very successful and exciting year for the segment-leading Chevrolet Camaro. For the 2011 model year, Chevrolet looks to expand the car’s popularity among consumers with the introduction of additional features.

“We are pleased with Camaro’s success in the market during its first year of production,” said Jim Campbell, U.S. Vice President, Chevrolet Marketing. “The 2010 model year has been a banner year for us, and we plan to build on this momentum.”

So much for all that talk that the mustang was going to take back that top spot. Ford finally stopped being cheap and stepped their game up only to be outdone again. Guess there's always next year.

Stupid comment. It's my opinion. I've driven a camaro and a mustang and I like the former better than the latter, even though the camaro's blind spots take a while to get used to.

Eversince the news of the 2011 mustang came out all I been hearing at the shop my buddy works at is that ford is going to have the better run this year because the engine is better and that the camaro sold off hype.

Personally I think chevy made the better car.

Quote:
Chevrolet has found an additional 8 hp for V6 versions of the 2011 Camaro, power that likely has been there all along.

The direct-injection 3.6-liter engine with VVT is now rated at 312 hp, up from last year’s 304 hp. Chevy didn’t actually do anything to the engine. Rather, engineers were conservative with the rating the first time around and were quite confident that it would make “at least” the original output. Torque also is rated a bit higher for 2011, at 278 lb-ft; the previous number was 273 lb-ft.

HUD looks cool.

Synergy green is a nice color.

The gain of horsepower in the V6 is nice, although I heard that the previous v6 was underrated.

Wanted to see performance upgrades on the SS.

I've driven a 2010, my brother let me drive his v8 on our trip to the nba finals in orlando last year and I rented a 1lt to drive to a titans game this last season.

I was making a comparison of the 2010s. Pretty sure nobody in the general public has driven a 2011 yet. I'm new to the forum but I'm not stupid enough to say I've driven a car that hasn't hit the streets yet.

If you think I've driven a 2011 mustang I got a 2030 mustang you're really going to love. I know chevy didn't make major changes but I feel like they still have the better car just going off the 2010s.

Good move on the HUD but a big fail on the colors. They need a jetstream blue or bring back ABM!

While a 2010 Camaro and a 2011 Camaro look like they are going to be nearly identical that is not the case for the 2010 and 2011 Mustangs.

Major changes were made.

Time will tell on who gets 'outdone'. Look for a nice 2LT/2SS price increase because of the HUD. On Corvettes, the HUD windshield is about $600 more than a standard one, not including all the HUD electronics.

As far as the symbolic HP upgrade on the v6, I don't think the Camaro will be the faster car because of this. I'm upset that they are playing in a pissing match with Ford instead of providing actual car improvement.

Green? Green cars account for about 1% of all car sales. This means no one wants green. Look for it to be dropped very soon.

My .02 cents; GM has repeatedly said product is now king, for them to make NO performance improvements to the SS is plain stupid. A standard CAI, a different Gear, and/or better sways would at least alllowed them to say they are working on it. Resting on thier laurels is what got them into bankruptcy. Ford is doing a MUCH better job of this..and, I have a 2SS!!!

All this Camaro vs. Mustang talk actually warms my heart...I missed it for all those years that the Camaro was away! The best part about the "competition" in this thread: there has been only one brief mention of an import. Folks, the "good ol' days" are back...Chevy vs. Ford is what this hobby is all about! Well, at least for me...

Good news about the HUD. I really like the idea of turn by turn being integrated. In fact, I posted this nearly 2 years ago:

Simple, effective, no need to look away, and nearly fool proof. ...

Well, Synergy Green was available for late 2010's, while ABM wasn't ... there is nothing that says GM won't change some colours later in the year.
