Punctuation matters.

That says “Stingray (slash) Z06,” which means both the Stingray and the Z06. Besides, that’s just a generic placeholder in the chart anyway, since the real model names haven’t...

To be 100% accurate, I’d bet the Camaro “suede” is actually faux suede, because the real stuff is too expensive for a vehicle in that price range. (Even the Corvette gets “sueded microfiber.”) GM...

If you have a Camaro, you don't have real Alcantara on your steering wheel and shifter anyway - it's a knockoff sueded microfiber material. Just about any quality interior cleaner will keep it...

Unfortunately, that '19 4T 1LE video link doesn't continue into the C8 video that comes up next. The C8 video is watchable at the AutoBlog and AutoWeek sites mentioned above in #13.
