Barely. Curb weight as per Chevrolet.com is 3298 lbs

But still, the C7 is a fairly small 2 seater with an aluminum frame and composite bodywork. It isn't going to be a mere 100 lbs less than a 6th Gen SS.

Thinking of it from the other direction, an ATS with the V6 comes in at 3461. Its pretty wishful thinking to expect the 6th Gen (SS) as being within 100 lbs of that

The Camaro is only big on the outside. On the inside its classed as a compact car with roughly the same amount of space as my Grand Am

I'm thinking the SS will be somewhere in the 3700-3800 range.

That is the weight of a no-option C7. And no one stocks or buys no-option Vettes. C7's probably average @ 3400+ in the real world, especially when equipped with Automatic, which the majority are ordered with.

Building with sheet metal, only, and adding a rear seat, the Gen-6 Camaros on Alpha will weigh more than C7s, just like the ATS coupe does (2.0-T is 3418-Base).

Not really sure what you're trying to get at.. I replied to a guy and told him that 3400+ is not base curb weight. What are you going off about?

Who the hell doesn't think the Alpha Camaro will weigh more than the C7? I prefer to start at the curb weight and go from there. I don't care what options people order that adds weight. I want to know where they each start.

3,300 for the Vette and hoping for 3,700 range for Camaro.. Should be below 3,800 for base SS.. I hope.

Some previous comments suggest an expectation of up to 500 lb. loss. That's NOT going to happen, is it?

Feel better, now? Your google skills are intact. Sorry for your sensitive skin condition, though. Have you consulted with a dermatologist?

The above post does not imply that a significant weight reduction is realistic. I think he is simply stating how much performance would be gained by losing weight. I'm sure everyone would agree.

For those who are concerned with dimensions, my GTO has better visibility and more head and leg room than a 5th-generation Camaro. However, externally the GTO appears much smaller. As others have posted, a "smaller" Camaro doesn't necessarily mean smaller interior dimensions.

The majority of Corvette's are ordered with an automatic, but it's not like it's 80 percent. It's 60 according to GM. (I had to actually Google this as I read an article about this recently). Happy? No Google needed for the weight though!

I have no idea why you needed to quote what I said and talk about the Camaro weight afterwards. I never stated that it would lose 500 pounds. All I did was correct someone on the base weight of the Vette. That's it! Direct your posts at someone else. THANKS!

Camaro SS 2016 coming to you in the fall of 2015 at 3,7xx pounds.

Enjoy your day!

Miss the 05 GTO I owned. Best seats I've ever been in.

I don't think a smaller camaro would be functional for me and the family. I would like to see some weight reduction but cabin space is perfect. If it does go smaller, I hope they take that room out of the trunk because I will have to fit my kiddo in the back seat.

It's not going to be that much smaller. I understand it will be based on the CTS version of the Alpha platform, not the ATS. I would guess at most it will lose 100 pounds. Hope I am wrong.
