Many people voice how much they love ABM but the numbers never proved it which why it got pulled. It was the lowest numbered Camaro from what I remember.

Now compare that to the narrow gap between 2lt and 1lt. Looks like the 1LT owners didn't see the point of spending any more change, because they wanted to stay at a certain pricepoint. But combine the 2 numbers and you have almost 35% of the market being V6 Camaros.
i see what your saying but i see that a lot of guys on here want just the engine and nothing fancy, like no guages, no bluetooth, no leather, just an engine, body, a steering wheel and maybe... maybe.. maybe a radio lol

V-6 = 41.5% (LS+1LT+2LT)

V-8 = 58.5% (1SS+2SS)

Second most popular color is Red...if you combine the two shades of red (~19.0%).

Better be careful- if trim levels are anything like paint, the 1SS could be heading down an ugly road... When you compare, you have to look at strictly V6 then strictly V8. The 1SS is less than 12% of the V8 volume while the V6 trims are 16.2%, 36.5%, and 47.3% respectively of the total V6 production. I would venture a guess that there is a number at which they would drop a trim level; say if 1SS falls below 7% of the V8 volume...

ONLY A GUESS PEOPLE...don't freak out.

Hmmmm, it seems people do care about options and luxuries even in a muscle car.

Who would have thought.

+1

One of the reasons I bought an LS. If they would have made an LS with the V8 option for around 2-3k more, I would have bought it.

I got a 1SS because I hate leather seats. I dont mind the rest (blue tooth, stereo etc) but they arent that important to me. If they offered the 2SS in cloth I'd have gone with that.

It will be interesting to see these two charts again after all the 2010's are built, just to see the final percentages of models and colors.

True. I honestly thought that by this point the V6 would have overtaken the V8. I would expect current V6 sales to outdo V8 sales by 2:1 now that the initial "gotta have it" group is done and the weather is breaking in all the northern states.

WTF

Or maybe some of us just don't want leather and want to be special for a low model production. Because maybe down the road since so few are made they will be worth more LOL

See me at the Christmas tree and I will show you that I have the full model. You have a sixbanger and you're calling the 1SS less than a full model? I guess that you would rather have DOODADS than the horsepower of a honking V-8. I have had experience with Chevy's "leather" and found the 66% of it that is VINYL. What do you think? Do you think that those of us that are adverse to "Pleather" should not be offered an SS? Why do you care what I bought? I don't care if you got the one with the Vinoleum seats and the Bluetooth. Does the bluetooth make yours go faster or handle better than my 1SS? If I add the garage door opener will I turn a quicker quarter mile at New England Dragway? I have just what I need, no more or no less. I have the polished wheels, the Boston Accoustics and the only thing that I thought that the car should have had from the factory, the gauge pack is on order and paid for and will be installed by the end of the week.

I wanted my Camaro SS simple. A 1SS is perfect for me. It's just like the way Brock Yates drew up the original Roadrunner. Very basic car with lots of muscle. I LOVE it!

Same here. But but I'm also small (in height and weight), so I slide on leather. I don't require all the bells and whistles in the 2SS either. I'm pretty happy with a 'bare bones' car. As a matter of fact I prefer it in this car.

I think you're taking this far more seriously than was warranted. ::shrug::

I couldn't justify paying the 2SS price with the performance mods i had in mind. Not knocking the 2, but...
