Camaro Speedometer Gauge

I'm getting my Camaro next month and was just down at the dealer looking at em and deciding which color I want. Stupid question, but the speedometer gauge was in KPH. Is this normal..isn't it supposed to be a 180 mph gauge, or do they come in both? (I'm living in the Middle East and I really don't wanna have a stupid looking speedometer. Would much prefer MPH) Thanks guys

Mine has MPH but I think Canadian is KPH. The digital speedometer can be set to either.

you can switch it to MPH, and it will stay there till you change it back.there is only one row of numbers, the needle adjust accordingly, even when you are moving you will see the needle flick back.

Cars for export to the Middle East and Canada have metric speedometers and gauges. I'm guessing your temp gauge is in degrees Celsius as well.
Seems a lot of people like the higher numbers on the dial face!

Here's a YouTube video from the Middle East of a CTS-V hitting 300 KPH on the speedo


Best regardSS,

Elie

The analog one will switch as well. When you are going 100 MPH the needle will point to 100, it's all good.
