I'd be willing to bet the base model alpha Camaro will come in under 3400 and the V6 under 3500.

* 3315 pounds is the curb weight for the ATS 2.5L, the 2.0L turbo curb weight is 3373 (A) and 3403 (M)
I fully agree based on everything I've read. If the Alpha SWB is used, which is what ATS is on, I'd expect a V6 version in the low to mid 3,400 lb range.

On the other hand, the new 2014 CTS is on the Alpha LWB, and it weighs right around 3,650 lbs. I'd think a Camaro on the same chasis with the same V6 (not the turbo V6) could come in at under 3,600 lbs.

That said, I'll be disappointed if the next V6 (if there IS a V6 version) weighs over 3,500 lbs.
