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.

There's no way to integrate this into either the 2010 or 2011?

That's alright. Turning the key keeps it more car, less computer IMO. Plus I always wanted a switchblade key

Eme's Lexus has PBS, and it's great- for that kind of car. But when it comes to Camaro, I'd rather crank the motor myself

Wow, i feel sorry for all the folks who bought the SGM Limited edition camaro, they just got punched in the face like people who bought the 09 Stang
HUD is cool, kind of a bummer that its standerd on all 2LT and 2SS models
I wonder what the etra HP v6 will do performance wise now

.... GM cant win here

If they added a lot more stuff the folks who have 2010s would complain
We have shown via sales numbers that they got a lot right on the 2010 model

The design team will have finite $ to invest and it looks like right now they are directing that towards some more specialized models - e.g Z28

From memory - what the team here was yelling for most before launch was HUD and a Z28... Based on what I see it looks like GM team is keeping the faith and focussing on those

I would have loved to have had HUD - but I will at least have had the pleasure of driving the car for 9 months of so and to have been on the road while car is still a rarity
