Post Official 6th gen Camaro FACTS Thread

This thread is for posting known facts about the 6thgen Camaro. Post what you know with a link proving it.

FACT—The 6thgen Camaro will be built in Lansing, Michigan alongside its Alpha platform mate the Cadillac ATS (GM).

Things we can reasonably expect (NOT FACTS):
  • available 8-speed automatic
  • LT1 engine (SS model)
  • turbo-4 (competes directly with Ford turbo-4 Mustang and imports)
  • evolutionary styling
  • significant weight reduction

Additional facts provided by SuperSound! Appreciate the help! Will edit when I get to a PC to clean up the post. As of 4/27/15

Fact: Some will like it, some will hate it, some will think it is just ok. Entire threads will be created for each opinion, multiple times over.

Fact: The integrity, masculinity, intelligence, etc., of people who bought a V6 (or, gasp, a 4-cyl), auto, or heaven forbid both will still be questioned by those with nothing better to do.

Fact: Somebody will mount 30"+ rims on it and we'll have several threads discussing the same pictures and why/how someone would do that to a Camaro.

Fact: A bunch of people will take a thread asking for 6th gen fact collection and crack wise all over it instead.

It has been confirmed that the 6th Gen will be built on the Alpha platform. Also, unless something has changed it is supposed to be available in 2015 as a 2016 model.
