The only real concern I have is the weight......4,200lbs seems bit high to me considering that GM was trying to offset some of the necessary weight gain due to the blower & upgraded/stronger suspension components by saving weight were possible (lighter tires & wheels come to mind). I'm, hoping that 4,200lbs number was pulled out of thin air by Jloplink. I was hoping they would be able to keep it more around 4,000lbs.....I'm sure it's only a matter of time before we get the "real" weight from GM.

Overall though....

Now I just have to be impatient over cost, options & colors!
4200 lbs is a bit too clean for me. Not 4187 or 4216 ... just 4200 even. Plus, Motor Trend said nothing about the weight.
Note, if I've gotten any facts wrong in the above, just ignore any points I made with them
