Answeres to questions I have stumbled on

I dont think this is a repost if it is please let me know.... alot of this info is all ready out here, but this is condensed into one neat little package


Was a production Camaro the plan from the beginning?

No. Camaro production is a direct result of the overwhelming enthusiastic response to the Chevy Camaro concept at the 2006 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.



Why is the Camaro taking so long to launch? Is it late?

Back in August 2006, GM announced that the all-new Camaro would go on sale in the first quarter of 2009. Nothing has changed. This is still the target date for production. GM is using this time frame to further develop its new global rear-wheel-drive architecture and fine-tune Camaro’s fuel-efficient powertrain, sophisticated chassis and contemporary design.



When will the Camaro coupe be available for sale to the public?

The Camaro coupe will be available for sale in the first quarter of 2009. Production is slated to begin in mid-February 2009.



Are vehicles like the Camaro coupe compatible with growing concerns about fuel economy?

GM offers a wide range of fuel-saving technologies. Chevrolet and GM are continuing to look for ways to improve fuel economy and offer the latest fuel-saving technologies. The Camaro coupe is being designed with fuel economy concerns in mind and will deliver better-than-expected fuel economy. Specific fuel economy data figures will be available closer to launch.



Are fuel economy numbers available?

Final fuel economy numbers are not yet available for Camaro coupe. Projected fuel economy numbers on the highway are 26 mpg for the V6 engine with automatic transmission and 23 mpg for the V8 engine with automatic transmission. Stay tuned to Chevylaunch.com for future updates regarding fuel economy.



Is there a rich heritage surrounding Camaro?

Since it roared to life in the fall of 1966 as a 1967 model, Camaro has given millions a taste of “performance -- American style,” with muscular V8s, great road-handling suspension components and uncompromised styling that really turns heads. And after 35 years, Camaro remains the “purest of the breed” and part of the great American motoring landscape. Camaro has touched many lives -- and graced many garages -- with nearly 4.8 million produced between 1967 and 2002. More than 1,000 Camaro clubs exist globally and thousands of Camaro Web sites pay homage to the sports coupe.



Who will be shopping for the Camaro coupe?

Camaro will attract a very loyal customer base of passionate enthusiasts. These customers are looking to engage with the Camaro legacy.



Is Chevy targeting only one specific customer for the Camaro coupe?

In addition to the enthusiast customer, the Camaro coupe is targeting a new, more youthful customer. These new customers are very passionate drivers. They enjoy an exciting driving experience and like to impress and surprise others with what they drive. Be sure to visit the Marketing section for more detailed information on all of the Camaro coupe customers.



What trim levels are available on Camaro coupe?

The Camaro coupe will be offered in five trim levels: LS, 1LT, 2LT, 1SS and 2SS. Be sure to visit the Product section for standard feature information.



What engines will be available?

Camaro coupe will house a standard 3.6L DI VVT V6 engine with projected 300 horsepower and 273 lb.-ft. of torque. This engine is one of the most fuel-efficient offers in GM’s high-feature engine family. In addition, Camaro coupe will offer an available 6.2L V8 engine with projected 400 horsepower and 395 lb.-ft. of torque (automatic transmission) or projected 422 horsepower and 408 lb.-ft. of torque (manual transmission). For full engine details, be sure to visit the Product section.



What transmissions will be available?

A six-speed manual Aisin AY6 transmission is standard with the 3.6L DI VVT V6 engine. A Tremec® TR6060 manual transmission is standard with the 6.2L V8 engine. In addition, a Hydra-Matic® 6L50 or 6L80 six-speed automatic transmission is available with both the 3.6 DI VVT V6 and 6.2L V8.



What other performance features will be available on the Camaro coupe?

Camaro coupe incorporates a near 50/50 weight distribution for enhanced driving characteristics and a twin ball joint strut front suspension for precise handling. Camaro coupe also comes equipped with an independent rear suspension (a competitive advantage over solid axle) that is designed to handle its power. A variable rack-and-pinion steering system helps give Camaro coupe a sporty feel, while Brembo brakes with four piston calipers on the SS model provide racetrack stopping capability.



What’s unique about the exterior styling of Camaro coupe?

Camaro coupe carries the dimensions, presence and overall refinement indicative of a 21st Century sports car. A powerful stance gives it a dominating road presence. An aluminum hood with “power bulge” contributes to a strong look. Large available wheels and tires (up to 20 inches) sit very outboard and are flush with body surfaces for an agile appearance. Large, round dual polished exhaust tips and an available 1.5-inch rear spoiler complete the aggressive design. For more styling details, be sure to visit the Product section.



Are there any special appearance packages available on Camaro coupe?

Camaro coupe will offer an RS Appearance Package that includes HID headlamps, spoiler on LT model, 5-spoke wheel with Midnight Silver paint finish, RS unique taillamps, body-color roof ditch molding and RS badging (front and rear). Camaro coupe will also offer an Interior Accent Package that includes a black interior with Inferno Orange accents on leather-appointed, heated seating surfaces. Inferno Orange stitching is also present on the steering wheel, shift knob, door armrest and center console. Inferno Orange appliqué is present on the instrument panel and door trim.



Is there anything unique about the interior styling of Camaro coupe?

Inside, Camaro coupe offers available four-pack gauges in the center console, a “deep- dish” thick grip, three-spoke steering wheel, available ambient lighting, contemporary graphics, oversized knobs with chrome detail and contemporary, comfortable seating. Design inspiration was drawn not only from the First Generation Camaro, but also various consumer products such as stylish cell phones, appliances and wristwatches.



What technology features are available with Camaro coupe?

Camaro coupe offers standard OnStar®, XM® Satellite Radio, StabiliTrak® Stability Control System with Traction Control and Competitive/Sport and Launch Control modes, and a USB port. Available features include HID headlamps, Bluetooth®, Boston Acoustics® Sound System and more. Be sure to visit the Product section for more details.



What safety features are available on Camaro coupe?

Safety features on Camaro coupe include standard StabiliTrak Stability Control System with Traction Control, ABS, six standard air bags, rear seat LATCH system, OnStar with one-year of Safe & Sound Plan and more. Be sure to visit the Product section for more details.



Is a full-size spare tire available?

No. Camaro coupe will offer an optional mini spare tire on the LS and LT models only. A tire inflator kit is standard on all models. The tire inflator kit is a convenient way to fix a majority of potential tire problems. Camaro is lighter in weight with the inflator kit, resulting in increased performance and fuel economy and less noise/vibration.



What vehicles will the Camaro coupe compete against?

Customers interested in the Camaro coupe will also be shopping the Ford Mustang and the new 2008 Dodge Challenger. Challenger will be built off established RWD architecture, allowing it to start production earlier than Camaro. The Camaro production vehicle will be designed to hold a number of product advantages over this competition and will surely be able to hold its own against any high-performance competitor out there.



Where will the Camaro coupe be built?

Production will take place at our award-winning assembly plant in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada.



Has pricing been announced for the Camaro coupe?

The 2010 Camaro LS (base model) will carry a starting MSRP of $22,995, including Destination and Freight Charges (DFC) and excluding tax, title, registration and other dealer fees. The 2010 Camaro SS will carry a starting MSRP of $30,995, including Destination and Freight Charges (DFC) and excluding tax, title, registration and other dealer fees.



How can I get more information about Camaro coupe?

Chevylaunch.com is your source for the latest information regarding Camaro. If you have customers who are seeking an information source, you can direct them to www.chevy.com/camaro.



Will there be a production Camaro convertible?

Yes, there will be a production Camaro convertible. Timing is scheduled for the summer of 2010 as a 2011 model.



Are there any plans for a Z28 model?

Chevrolet is continuing to look at lifecycle enhancements for Camaro. Currently there is no announcement to be made on a Z28 model.



Why is SS the uplevel model for Camaro instead of Z28?

The SS trim level was chosen to place Camaro among the other flagship offerings in Chevy’s SS model lineup. Camaro SS will join Cobalt SS, HHR SS, and TrailBlazer SS in this high performance portfolio.



Are t-tops available as an option on Camaro coupe?

No. However, an express-open and venting sunroof will be available – a first-time application for Camaro.



Will there be a navigation system available on Camaro coupe?

No. There will not be a navigation screen option available on the Camaro. However, Camaro will offer Turn-by-Turn Navigation available through OnStar.



When will allocation and ordering information for Camaro coupe be available?

Allocation and specific ordering information will be released on October 13, 2008.



Is there a way to show customers the LPO's or accessories available on Camaro? The ground effects are one area that they cannot visualize.

You and your customer can jointly visit the Camaro Photo Gallery which displays various Camaro images (including the ground effects package). You can show these images to customers interested in ordering Camaro via your dealership computer. We request that they not be printed or scanned and provided directly to a customer or posted on various websites outside of GM. This photo gallery will continue to be updated with photos in the near future.



When will pricing information on the accessories or the LPO's be available? I have some customers who are holding back until they know a price on them.

The LPO pricing is available on the current price schedule available through GM Global Connect.



Are there any other car cover colors coming out, besides red?

Yes. The Camaro car cover will be available in red and silver.



Are all LPO accessories installed at the factory or through the dealership?

All LPO's are dealer installed. The benefit of the LPO's is that they appear on the window label.



What colors are available with the Interior Trim Package?

From the factory, the only interior accent trim package is the Inferno Orange Package; however, other trim packages - including yellow - is available from GM Accessories.



Is the only way to get the halo ring with the high intensity lights on the RS Appearance Package?

Yes, the RS Appearance Package is the only package that offers HID with the Halo Ring.



Is there a picture of the interior accent trim package available?

During the most recent IDL Broadcast, images of the Inferno Orange Interior and the various GM Accessories were shown. We would encourage dealers to view the IDL broadcast available on their GM Genesis training box so they can describe these features. You and your customer can also jointly visit the Camaro Photo Gallery which displays various Camaro images (including the Inferno Orange Interior). You can show these images to customers interested in ordering Camaro via your dealership computer. We request that they not be printed or scanned and provided directly to a customer or posted on various websites outside of GM. This photo gallery will continue to be updated with photos in the near future.



Is there a website I can show a retail customer the available accessories?

We are working on preparing broader description of the LPO packages. You and your customer can jointly visit the Camaro Photo Gallery which displays various Camaro images (including some accessories). You can show these images to customers interested in ordering Camaro via your dealership computer. We request that they not be printed or scanned and provided directly to a customer or posted on various websites outside of GM. This photo gallery will continue to be updated with photos in the near future.



What are the differences in the strip packages?

The rally stripes are dual stripes located on the hood and trunk. These stripes are available either as factory installed or as LPO/Dealer Installed Accessories. The other Dealer Installed Accessories are "hockey stripes" that run along the side of the car, and a single wide stripe on the power bulge of the hood.



Will you be sending the dealers a package of the Order Workbooks, and other literature that is available to download?

Point of sales materials including brochures and production information center updates will be provided closer to start of production. The materials you now have will not be provided in hard copy. If you are looking for material to provide to customers, please direct them to Chevy.com/Camaro for a Specification and Packaging Overview (a copy of which is available on Chevylaunch.com).



Is the Camaro going to be offered at G.M.S pricing?

We'll be making an announcement on our GMS plans closer to the start of production.



Also, are there any pictures available of the accent stitching package on the interior of this car?

Additional interior pictures will be made available closer to the start of production.



Can you please tell me if the exterior accent stripe package on the SS Camaro covers the hood, roof, and deck lid or what components?

The Rally Stripes are on the hood and trunk deck lid, but not on the roof.


On the 2SS with an automatic transmission, where will the TAPShift Switch(s) be located?

The TAPshift is located on the back of the steering wheel on both the left and right side of center spoke.



I have a customer who wants to order a White Camaro. With the color White being tentative for July production, what can I do to secure this order when White is not a color selection during the order process?

We are still a couple of months away from accepting orders with the White exterior color. We would suggest ordering the customer's vehicle in a different color, and then changing the exterior once White is released and available during the order process.



Will the automatic transmission be an additional charge over the manual transmission on the SS model?

Yes. The six-speed automatic transmission is an option priced between $995 and $1185 MSRP depending on model.

I have a couple of customers that are interested in the Bumble Bee Yellow that was used in the Transformers movie. Is this color available for the pre-sold orders? If yes, what is the order code? If no, will that color be available and when?

If a customer is interested in a Transformers looking model, we suggest you order Rally Yellow with the black LPO stripes. Due to a number of challenges, we do not plan to make the actual color from the Transformer movie available for production.



Why did GM change the color code ordering options for exterior and interior colors on Camaro?

The 2010 Camaro is the first product to adopt the new global option platform. As part of the platform, our color and trim codes resemble regular production codes. We understand dealers are unfamiliar with these codes, but our new process did not allow us to continue using the traditional color and trim codes.



What is the LPO code for the Rally Stripe in Black?

The option code for the LPO / Dealer Installed Black Stripe is VZG. Remember, we only offer Cyber Gray and White Rally stripes from the factory. The black stripe is available as LPO, and is installed at the dealership.



Are the hood and side stripes painted or are they decals?

The stripes that are applied at the factory and at the dealership are decals, not painted



What is the difference between the Cyber Gray Stripe (VYY) that is dealer installed and the Cyber Gray Stripe (B7W) that is installed at the factory?

The only difference between the two stripe packages are one is installed at the factory, the other is installed at the dealership.



I have a customer who is ordering a Camaro 2SS with the RS Package. He wants chrome wheels, the Convenience and Connectivity Package and the Interior Lightning Package which are not on GM Autobook. Can they be ordered?

We have learned there is a high demand for an optional wheel on the RS Package, and we will be making an announcement on an additional wheel in the near future, as well as sharing some information on Interior Ambient Lighting Package. The Convenience and Connectivity package is included with the 2SS model.



Can Camaro be neutral towed behind a motor home?

We would not recommend towing Camaro behind motor homes. Flatbed towing or trailer towing (Camaro on a trailer) would be the preferred way to tow.



Do the 21-inch LPO/accessory wheels (on the 2SS model) include any suspension modifications?

Suspension modifications are not required to install the 21-inch LPO/accessory wheels on any of the 2010 Camaro models.



Does the sunroof on Camaro slide into the roof or tilt and slide outside of the car?

The sunroof on Camaro tilts and slides over the roof.



I have customers that desire the LPO: 5V5 spoiler on their Camaro 2SS. All indications are that it is not standard or available. Why?

The High Wing Spoiler (LPO: 5V5) is not available with any model (including the 2SS or any RS Package) where the original vehicle had a spoiler installed from the factory. The issue around this matter is that holes on the factory installed spoiler do not align with the holes required for the High Wing Spoiler.



Are the V8-equipped Camaro’s going to be produced first? Can I summit orders for V6-equipped Camaro’s and what is the time line on their production?

All Camaro models - both the LS and LT equipped with the V6 engine, and the SS equipped with the V8 engine – will be available at the start of production.



Will the hood on the Camaro 2SS with the RS Package have a hood air induction that is open or just ascetic?

The SS model front fascia includes a non-functioning, appearance only opening. It is not an operating air induction feature.



If my customers order the Camaro 2SS with the RS Package will they lose the air scoop hood and SS fascias?

No. When the RS Package is ordered with the SS model, only the front headlamps and the SS emblem change on the front fascia. The headlamps are upgraded to HID with the "halo ring" and the badging changes from silver to red.



If a customer orders a 2SS with the RS package, what emblems will the car have?

When the RS Package is ordered on a SS model, the silver SS emblems on the exterior (front right of grille and on the right side of the rear deck) turn to red.



Will there be two exhaust tips on each side on the 2SS?

There is only one exhaust tip per side on all Camaro models, including the SS model.



When will Camaro be available in Summit White?

Summit white exterior color should be available in July 2009.



Is the only way to get High-Intensity Discharge (HID) headlamps with the RS Package?

Yes. The 2SS Camaro has the standard halogen headlamps. Ordering the RS appearance package is the only way that a customer can get the HID headlamps.



Is an LS9 crate engine available on Camaro?

GM Performance Parts is planning to offer a LS9 crate engine for the Camaro. However, it will not be available until the Fall of 2009.



Early Order Program – Frequently Asked Questions


Since the unveiling of the Camaro concept coupe in 2006, the anticipation for the production version has been unprecedented. Over 600,000 people have raised their hand requesting information on Camaro. There have been many rumors of customers submitting their names to various dealers to be placed on waiting lists for the car. With the premiere of Camaro in the new NBC series “My Own Worst Enemy”, and the fact that production is scheduled to start in a little over four months, the timing to start taking sold customer orders seemed ideal.




Will the production guide numbers supersede future estimated shipments and/or consensus activities?

No. The production guide numbers were created to provide dealers with a preview of their expected allocation for production from mid-February through Q3 2009. These guide numbers are not guaranteed and provided only for guidance. Monthly consensus activities, which include calculating an estimated shipment number, are expected to start either in December 2008 or January 2009. Reasonable measures will be undertaken to fulfill individual production guide numbers during the mid-February through Q3 2009 production period; however, potential unforeseen disruptions in production or changed business conditions could prevent GM from actually producing these quantities.



Is there a special method for submitting sold orders?

Sold orders can be submitted using the “Quick Order” feature under the Order Workbench’s Order Vehicles selection. This feature is a quick and easy method for submitting orders. To access the Camaro ordering information, Dealers need to select the “2010” model year and a “sold” order type (SRE for direct contact and SDC for RCC dealers). All sold orders will require customer’s full name and address information. If Dealers have any issues in submitting orders, please contact the Dealer Business Center.



Why are only “sold” and not “stock” orders being accepted?

Dealers will have the opportunity to submit stock orders during the normal consensus and order submission periods late this year or early next year. This is an opportunity to legitimize customers’ demand for Camaro, and provide acknowledgement of that demand with an actual GM-issued order number. Again, however, please insure that you counsel with your customers appropriately about the uncertainties in whether and on what timetable vehicles will actually be produced.



Why are customers’ full name and address information required on the sold order?

This sold order submission activity provides an opportunity to build a special bond with these customers. Having customers’ name and address information permits the customer, Dealer and GM to easily track individual orders. If price protection is offered in the future, having accurate, matching customer information on both the order and delivery record is a requirement for price protection payment. Please make every effort to submit accurate customer information when submitting the ordering information.



If sold orders are not submitted during this early ordering period, is there a risk the production guide will be lost?

No. The production guide is not dependent upon the number of sold orders submitted. In fact, dealers can opt not to submit any customers’ orders during this period, and submit stock orders during the traditional order submission periods. As mentioned earlier, the goal of the production guide was to provide a preview of expected estimated shipments for the initial production period in an effort to manage your business and customers’ expectations accordingly.



If bona fide sold customer orders are submitted in excess of the production guide number, will additional shipments be provided to cover these orders?

No. The goal of the production guide was to provide a preview of expected estimated shipments. The option of submitting orders in excess of the assigned production guide number is solely that of the dealer. Future allocation will be based on a fair and equitable equation, not on the number of sold orders submitted to GM.



Will GM automatically place our bona fide sold customer orders into production? And is the first order submitted the first order produced for our dealership?

GM cannot guarantee production of any order at this early stage. Dealers are responsible for the flow, or prioritization of sold orders or stock orders during order submission periods. Actual production will be impacted by available weekly allocation, material constraints, and priority numbers assigned by the Dealer. It is strongly suggested Dealers assign a varied priority number for each order on hand, starting with the lowest number on the order the dealer would like to be the first submitted into production.



You mentioned constraints; are any expected on the Camaro?

GM is doing what is reasonably possible to avoid constraints, but some issues are emerging. See the answer to the next couple of questions. One of several reasons constraints occur is an imbalance between forecasted supply and actual demand. A survey was recently conducted with 10,000 early intenders to help identify areas where demand may exceed our initial forecast. The results of this survey are helping adjust material schedules. Furthermore, the ability to accept bona fide customer orders provides GM a real-time view of initial demand. This view will provide a further opportunity to avoid constraints.



So, are you guaranteeing there will be no constraints?

No. The fact of the matter is, it is difficult to identify future material shortage until orders are on hand. Some issues have already surfaced due to various regulations. On LS and LT models, for example, an available option is a compact spare tire (the standard condition on all Camaro models is a tire inflator kit). Due to a number of factors, this option is constrained to 30% of LS and LT production (and not available on SS models due to different suspension requirements). If additional option constraints develop, notification will be provided through normal channels.



What about model constraints – is the SS model expected to be constrained?

All SS models come equipped with 6.2L V8 engine. All LS and LT models are equipped with the highly efficient, powerful 3.6L V6 engine. The results of our early intender survey indicate the majority of the demand will be for the 3.6L V6, however, the plant is preparing for a 50/50 production split between V8 and V6 engines.



Why do you think there will be a higher demand for the V6 engine models?

There are a number of reasons, including affordability, fuel efficiency and power. The 3.6L V6 engine features Variable Value Timing and Direct Injection that reduces carbon output and delivers a GM-estimated 27 mpg highway and 300 horsepower rating. While EPA estimates are not yet available, Challenger and Mustang’s V6 engines do not come close to offering this combination of power and fuel efficiency, and foreign sport coupes like Nissan 350Z and BMW 335I are much more expensive.



How will customers know they can submit an order?

As mentioned earlier, over 600,000 individuals have raised their hand and requested information on the Camaro. Plans are in place to send all these individuals an e-mail on Monday, October 13, 2008, announcing the early ordering activity. The date has been leaked to a number of enthusiast Web sites which have generated a great deal of “buzz” in the enthusiast community. Chevy.com/Camaro Web site will also be updated with information regarding the early ordering activity, including an update with packaging information to the downloadable specification sheet, and a list of Frequently Asked Questions (which follow this answer). All of these plans should lead to very viral spreading of the word to interested customers.



There will be a number of customers reluctant to order a Camaro without knowing the price. Will we have pricing information on October 13, 2008?

Yes. The introductory prices for the 2010 Camaro have been set, and a price schedule for the various models and options will be available to you on Monday, October 13, 2008, through normal channels. It will be a few additional months before prices are available in various on-line order configurators. As you will read in the FAQs for customers, the 2010 Camaro LS (base model) will carry a starting MSRP of $22,995, including Destination and Freight Charges (DFC) and excluding tax, title, registration and other dealer fees. The 2010 Camaro SS will carry a starting MSRP of $30,995, including Destination and Freight Charges (DFC) and excluding tax, title, registration and other dealer fees.



If we place an early order, how long would we have to make any changes?

Changes can be made to orders up to the time the order is prioritized and selected for production.

How much will the 2010 Camaro cost?

Delivering great value to our customers has been one of the hallmarks of Chevrolet and previous Camaro generations. The 2010 Camaro was developed with this legacy in mind – to deliver great value against its core competitors in the areas of style, technology, efficiency and performance. The 2010 Camaro LS will start at Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price of $22,995, including Destination and Freight Charges (DFC) and excluding tax, title, registration and other dealer fees. The 2010 Camaro SS starts with a Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price of $30,995, including Destination and Freight Charges (DFC) and excluding tax, title, registration and other dealer fees. For further information on individual model and option prices, please consult with your Chevrolet dealer.



Once pricing is announced, can I change the order?

Orders can be changed, but only by your Dealer, and up until the time the order is placed into the production cycle. Once the order is placed into the production cycle, no changes can be made to the order.



If I place an order for a Camaro with a Dealer, is it guaranteed to be produced and delivered by the summer of 2009?

Order submission assists GM and Chevrolet in understanding market demand. Each Chevrolet Dealer has been provided an estimated production guide number based on an estimated production horizon. The guide number comprehends individual dealer’s retail sales and competitor’s market trends, and was calculated based on expected production through Q3 2009. However, General Motors does not guarantee order production due to many factors, including unexpected production disruptions. Chevrolet Dealers are also responsible for controlling and prioritizing their customer’s order flow versus their individual production guide numbers, in some cases, customer demand may exceed production capacity. For this reason Chevrolet will not guarantee individual customer’s order’s production or timing.



I want to make sure my Camaro order gets produced as soon as possible: How can I find each dealer’s production guide number?

Sorry, each dealer’s production guide number is considered confidential and not available to the public.

Which Chevrolet Dealer should I order my Camaro from?

Chevrolet has great respect for every authorized dealer, and does not recommend one dealer over another. To see a list of your closest Chevrolet dealers, please visit the home page of Chevy.com, and enter your Zip code in the dealer locator section.



Am I obligated to take delivery through the Dealer I ordered the vehicle?

As indicated in an earlier answer, Dealers are submitting customer orders against an estimated production guide. Unless extenuating circumstances are present, orders cannot be transferred from one Dealer to another.



How do I know my order was submitted to Chevrolet?

Upon entering the order information into the GM ordering system, each dealer is provided a six-digit alpha numeric order number for customer and Dealer reference.



The Dealer requested my name and address for the order; is this a requirement?

Yes, for a Dealer to submit a bona-fide customer order, the customer’s full name and address is required. You will also want to ensure your correct name and address is on the order in the event GM and/or the Dealer needs to contact you in the future.



How can I track my order?

As mentioned above, your order is assigned a six-digit alpha-numeric order number which is necessary to track an order. The best method to track the order is to stay in touch with your ordering Dealer; however, you can also track the order by contacting the Chevrolet Customer Assistance Center at 800-222-1020.



Why can I not submit an order for my Camaro directly to Chevrolet?

The partnership between Chevrolet and the vast nationwide network of Chevrolet Dealers is very important, and was established to best serve our customers. With this in mind, only Chevrolet dealers are authorized to submit orders to General Motors.



Will I have to put a deposit down to order my Camaro? And how much?

As part of normal business practices, some dealers require customers to put down a monetary amount to submit an order. A deposit requirement, as well as final transaction price, is negotiated between you – the customer – and the dealer.



When can I submit an order for a Camaro convertible?

The Camaro convertible is scheduled to start production in the summer of 2010 as 2011 model. Convertible ordering information will be provided at a later date.



Will I be able to take delivery of my Camaro at the plant?

Camaro will be produced at the award-winning Oshawa assembly plant in Ontario, Canada. U.S. and Canadian customs and legal requirements prevent us from offering delivery of your Camaro at the Oshawa assembly plant.



Where can I find information regarding models, options and packages?

Chevrolet has prepared a downloadable PDF file that provides basic ordering information. Each Chevrolet Dealer has been provided full order guides and workbooks to help you chose the Camaro that is perfect for you.



Is there a full-line Camaro catalog available to review?

Our catalog is under development and will be available early in 2009.



In reviewing the Camaro model lineup, I noticed there is no Z28 model; are there plans for Z28 model?

The “Z28” moniker has an honored place in Camaro’s history; but at this time, Chevrolet will not have a Z28 model available in the first production year. Chevrolet continues to review market opportunities and does not comment on future product plans.

This is a really good compilation of questions. The only thing is that if I follow the "Back to Top" instructions, my mouse pad will be doing suicides (down one paragraph, up to top, down another paragraph, up to top...).

Nice info there, especially about the build mix (V8 vs V6 cars), and the stripe package details. Very cool.

^ I'm a little concerned about this... I don't think this is a dealer installed option.... I think its just a crate motor that you have to install your self???

I'd like to get this answer.
