Exclamation CAMARO SS price



Through the past moth i have contacted several dealers most of which have not had a clue about any info reguarding the soon coming Camaro...

However two have just contacted me (10-8-08 and 10-9-08) with some new info.

1) The sales person whom I just spoke gave me a quote for the SS...

$38-$40K :( for a fully loaded SS per the GM manager that comes to the store... guessing poss. a regional?

2) Any one in Ohio i have two dealers who promissed no more than MSRP and are ready to take orders.

3) He said there is talk of a bumble bee production car in limited number but does not have the details @ this time..

4) The some what confusing ordering of packages may be easier than thought.... i want a SS with leather seats and center consule guages but not all the options from the 2SS. He said that what he has seen from other models there should be a model or way to mix/ match so you wont need to get a 2SS for those options... poss dealer/GM option @ the same price?


Hope this helps in some way?

they have not announced price yet, they say that the car will cost so much so they can charge you that when it comes out.....so dont believe that.

It would be irresponsible of a dealer to do anything but guess high until pricing is out, and of course some dealers are planning extra markups for the initial buyers.

I don't understand why people think it will be priced that high. It would be CRAZY for GM to price it high and they would never meet their targets. If they want to compete with the Mustang, and they do, then it will have to be within about $1000 of the Mustang price, putting it in the low to mid $30k's for a 2SS/RS.

I'm going to go over this again. Camaro5 has a unique membership that eagerly seeks out facts and rejects bad or false data. We have GM insiders like fbodfather and JohnnyCamaro to help us do just that. Repeatedly, fbodfather has pointed out that the Camaro will be priced just above the Mustang. Does $38k sound like Mustang GT pricing to you? No one on this forum should be listening to their dealer about price. No dealer in the world knows what the Camaro will cost yet.

Here's why I'm worried: From the Ford website (Canadian) the GT's start at $33K with special packages (Bullitt package) starting at $38K. From the Dodge website (again Canadian) the Challenger SRT8 starts at $45K. These would be competitors for the SS. So even if GM prices a little below, a 2SS with any extras (striping, RS, etc) could easily mean the $40k range. I hope I'm wrong about this comparison or when the official pricing is released.

to my knowledge they are comparing the camaro to the R/T challenger and mustang GT. granted it will greatly out perform them i think thats the 'competitive price range' that they're in

Well I for one can tell you this.... If it's priced anywhere near $40K, then I'm out.

I may be out anyway and just hang on to my money with the way the economy is going.

I completely understand your worries, but you've got it all wrong. The Camaro will be priced with the Mustang GT. If that is overpriced in Canada, the Camaro will be overpriced in Canada. That we cannot fix. In either case, the Camaro will be competitively priced with performance that will shame the Ford Mustang. In US dollars, the Camaro 1SS will be under $30k.

My dealer quoted me $29,000 base price for the SS.. SO I think you're on the high side.. $36,000 is probably a fully loaded SS and $38,000 with taxes tag etc on a fully loaded SS/RS..

Probably a little high, but for a fully loaded SS .. I don't see this as unreasonable .. I still say fully loaded will be 36k - 38k .. somewhere in there ... who knows .. maybe higher ..

I can see $38k for a SS2/RS including sales tax, tag, title and all the bogus dealer fees but $38k MSRP seems a bit too high to me.

You should not be adding the "Bullit" package to the mustang. That is all marketing. You are paying for a "special" edition. You don't get anything other than a memorable plaque on the dash. Compare the pricing of a Premium GT with similar options. It seems a few on this sight are having a hard time accepting some of the Mustang "special ed-itions" may be overpriced.

Awesome. This makes me feel better.

I am placing my pre-order today and I really want the 2SS/RS.

Thanks!

Just built a Mustang GT ..

28,725 base price
after all the options I wanted: 34,600 (including destination fee).

So a camaro with a bit more power and IRS, I can see that coming in at least 1.5k - 2k higher than that (and selling quite well)... even at 1.5k that would put it around 37.1k before taxes ..

And where did you see this? There was an old article that said that but it wasn't true. If you have something new that says that then please post the link, but that would be about the stupid possible thing GM could do. If they want to sell any of these cars, much less 100k, they are going to have to be priced very closely to Mustang, no way around that.

MSRP will be right around 30K for the SS. There's a lot of options out there. Add them all up. It could get expensive for some of us.
