6th Gen Camaro moved back to 2015 or 2016?

I was talking on the phone to dealer about ordering a 1le and he said if I don't want to wait a really long time to get the vehicle best do it soon. Becuz of the manufacturing changed areas said the new body style has been pushed back.

Anyone else here this?

Sorry if this is a repost.

99% of dealers know nothing about future product schedules. And of course they don't want you to wait, they want to sell cars now and not worry about two years from now.

It makes sense considering the moving process. What all they have to get and what all they have to do to the building

Even if it is true, he would have no way to know that. He is just trying to pressure you to buy now (from him).

I don't see the camaro changing its body style dramatically, until the mustang does, it just wouldn't make sense. I can also see the challenger getting canned in the next few years, after they come out with the srt cuda. Also, i keep hearing the new camaro will be on a smaller platform, if that is the case, i won't buy, that was the whole reason i bought a camaro, i like the room.

Your dealer is full of chit!!

GM has not shared anything about any future product release dates with any dealers.
A dealer knows no more or less than most on this forum.
Anything any dealer tells you at this point about any vehicle not currently available is doing so with the sole intent to better their sales position with you.


There are probably a few on this forum that know more, but they are not in a position to say anything.

I'd agree with this, New models from any manufacture are top secret and only known by a very elite staff, unless you read or hear information directly released by GM consider it to be rumor or speculation. whether it be GM, Ford, Chrysler, or any other auto company, they go to great lengths and expense to keep thier plans to themselves.

If the 6th gen is being produced in the US, and the 5th gen isn't, and Super60s "farewell" post is to be considered accurate, then yes, 2015-16 will feature the redesign.

I don't believe they can design and tool up for a '16 remodel in 18 months unless they started already. Thirty months June '16 for a new '17 model is my guess.

This. And in my experience, 90% of dealers know nothing about current product as well.

The next Mustang is coming as a 2015 model year. The 6th gen Camaro will come within a year at the most, so 2015-2016 sounds right.

I feel this is correct. I think waiting past that is just too much of a head start for the next gen Mustang.

But I wouldn't mind seeing a late 2014/early 2015 release as a 2015 model either

I'll add my 2cents and as most have stated the dealers know nuthin about what is happening until GM tells them something and they probably started a new design or working on updating the design within months of releasing the current car,these things take time plus they can guage consumer interest and plan on making changes if necessary to the design over the 5-7 years of production,if you can get a 1LE now do it don't wait around I wish I could order now but need to pay one car off before buying another,if you wait and the next gen is not appealing your gonna be out of luck unless you buy used of course,I miss the way manufacturers did in the good ol days when they would release new year models in sept.or oct. of the year now you never know when they will be coming out,but suprises are good sometimes!

That may be pushing it. The CAW has already publicly stated that 5th gen production ends in '15.

In this case SOME dealers might know something about it because they had a conference in Vegas where some beans were spilled.
