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.

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.
The Mustang getting a redesign for the 2015 MY.

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.

Speculation, guessing and BS. Until someone with some authority says something, don't believe anything.

How exactly would moving it change anything? Nothing is built anywhere now so what is there to move? They are just gonna set up shop in the new plant. Hell it could already have been there for a year already waiting to go into CTF mode. How would anyone who isn't supposed to know, know!? Ya know?

That's what I was thinking. The future plant could have been well into conversion before the switch from Canada to the U.S. was announced. Heck, the first 6th gen Camaro could roll off the U.S. line as the last 5th gen is rolling off the line in Oshawa. We are so uninformed.

Wouldn't Mike be someone w authority? I thought he said they would stop producing Camaros at his plant in 2015 or something. Couple that with GMs announcement that 6th gen Camaros will be produced in America. It makes sense that that's when the 6th will come out.

I agree with the dealer being full of crap.

however GM history shows us that the typical life span of a given design or model is 6 - 7 years.

Send a message via AIM to Mr. Wyndham
The Rumormill says that the car appeared as a 2016 MY in internal systems.....take that for what it's worth...

From my perspective...the car is selling well enough, and performing awesome enough...to not need to rush a new generation out the door...

Not to diminish Mike's comments, but Scott, Cheryl, Al or Ed etc would have more authority. Upper management has the details and won't be talking out of turn.

Heh, ya. I bought my 11 in mid August 11. I asked the dealer when he thought they would get the new 12s in. He said, ooh, probably not until at least Jan '12... when I went in to sign the papers the sales manager told me the same thing. Then I told him the dealer up the road had some 12s he wanted to sell me for as much as this 11! I punched them up on the website on my phone and showed him.... he he... I got a good deal and I got the RJT I really wanted.

About a week later, i dove by the dealer and saw a whole row of 12s right out front...

Dealers want your money NOW! Theyll tell you whatever crap they can come up with if they think it will help.
