But on the C6 non-hud cars, there is a blank in the dash....this will be one of the first "we'll see when it gets here" items on my list. I think it would be a major job in a 2010 Camaro.

Where are the Power Passenger Seats GM? Please tell us that you are just holding off telling us until the press release!
I have heard more people complain about not having a power passenger seat then I have about not having a HUD!

So they gave the V6 six more HP? So the V6 pony is back to being the most powerful base-model pony car. Congrats! Too bad that small bump is only enough for bragging rights, as it does little or nothing to close the performance gap between it at the 2011 Mustang base model.

Honestly, I expected more. Maybe, as other have said, this is only the first volley of information and more is to come.

It would be very nice if they integrated the turn by turn onstar navigation with the HUD system. You know, basically an option for the HUD to display arrows and text to tell you where to go.

I don't think the corvette has this feature with HUD, so I doubt we'll get it since I'm sure it's the exact same system. Would be a very nice and usable feature though.

How do yall expect so much of a change after 1 year ?

No automaker will make drastic changes after the first year.

V6 gets a bump in Hp Cool SCREW the V6 Mustang its probably a good car as well its ugly. IF you care so much about racing a V6 its going to be a drivers race. Probably the same way with a V8 just because you have more hp or less weight doesnt mean jack if you cant drive.

Heads up display ? yeah its cool you look at it for a few weeks then it blends in and its not even looked at anymore.

I wont miss it lol



The only thing I would have loved to see on the Next Camaro power passenger seat that raised up and down.

Where did yall expect Gm to get the money to make this huge jump in Hp to come from ?
No way were they going to bump hp in a Camaro and pass a Corvette lol
if anything happens next for the SS it would be weight loss and thats going to be a whole lot of redoing stuff.

I think everyone was expecting wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyy to much be fortunate for what we have and learn to drive a car then that underweight 412 hp mustang wont matter add a few mods and its on lol

Love the bump in HP for the V-6, just to mess with the Mustang. Really thought they would do the ABL across the dash though.

It is to early to jump to conclusions. We haven't seen all the news yet.

I didn't expect big changes.

The HUD additions are very nice though.

It's a fairly straightforward retrofit on the non-HUD C6's, you should be able to add it w/out too much difficulty.

Help me out here..

new HP rating of 312 horsepowers on the V6 (3.6L SIDI V6)

Is that the same v6 engine tweaked?

We don't know yet.

Any number of things could have changed. The easiest being the tune.

oh now the morning has taken a turn for the worse.... I told my fiancee I was depressed about none of the small changes I wanted being announced, and she said, "if you don't want it that bad, don't get it. $500/mo is a lot!"

oh no!!!!! I should've kept my mouth closed, now I'm going to be stuck driving a Chevy Aveo!

Everybody complains about the weight of this car but then ask for features like this. With a car like this, you unfortunately can't have it both ways.

The model has just been released and some of you guys expect a major overhaul? Small updates/changes like this are the norm. Then if it was the other way you'de all complain about the price hike.

My question as well - has to be tweaked/tuned.

I'd love the HUD but agree with Scotty an install would be a major job.

Well, +8 hp is the same if u add good aftermarket intake. Maybe enough to be as fast, as stang v6 is. Maybe u will have add shorties or smth. Not a big deal. U have some money to add it, if stang comes with perf. package. Actually, no one rly knows, how fast mustang v6 is. Some of those magazines posted a year ago camaro v6 is going 5,7... Lie.
But the main idea ofc is 312 sounds better then 305 for the most young buyers, who cant decide: chevy or ford. Then they look at design... Interesting, what will they buy....

Its 8 hp not 6 no biggie there but in combination with the independent rear suspension it will help make up some of the difference in weight. We don't know any other changes in weight and or performance hardware yet. One though, If your such a big mustang guy why do you troll around here wouldn’t your buddies at rustang.com be much happier with you servicing them? Can't find the same thrill over there? I've been here on this site twice as long as you and have half the messages; I've owned 4 camaros and have been a big fan for a long time. Yet I don't have time to troll on mustang sites let alone visit one of them. Someone needs to move on and mature a little.

If nothing else changes then 8 hp is not good enough for even a 1 tenth and 1 mph jump in performance.
