6th gen Camaro when?

Okay so this is a long time from now, but I will be getting an SS camaro sep 2013...I was wondering if there are any rumors on the sixth gen because I don't want to get it and a year later the sixth gen comes out. The Camaro will be my first car, I am trying to get into Johns Hopkins University and I live in SoCal currently, I plan on driving from Maryland to California once every 2-3 months so I need a safe car, that's why I'm going down the Camaro route, but if the sixth gen is scheduled for 2014 I can most def. drive my dads company truck for a little while. Thanks in advance.

Really, It wouldn't make sense if they do because camaro sales are doing really well.

Thats a long ride. You would most likely save money by flying if it's just you. Your talking around 2800 miles. I've driven it a few times. The only time it was ever cheaper then flying was on my motorcycle, and it was only about $50 cheaper. I drove to see the country though. It takes 3 days to make the drive, each way and thats pushing it. If you really plan on driving that much I would recommend getting either a Sonic, or Cruz ECO with the 1.4L turbo engine. they are decent cars and the sonic runs about $18K new and you can get close to 40mpg running on the highway. The long of a trip will kill you in gas even in the V6 Camaro. Especially on a college budget.

That is a long trip!

The current Camaro is a great ride on the highway. We won't know about the 6th gen ride until it is released.

When I was in school I had ~500 miles to home. I usually found one or two or three other students to share the driving and cost. You can drive only stopping for food and fuel and changing seats then.

I wouldn't drive for most of the holidays, that was usually by air.

I would be surprised to see the 6th gen by 2015 even. I agree with the other replies as well. A road trip of that length can be fun. Driving it every 2-3 months will drive you crazy and it will be much more expensive than a flight.

Take the plane. After a few months @ JH you'll want the extra down time.

Your profile says you currently drive a Mercedes GL450. Um....I'd keep that

Regarding the Camaro...if you like the current generation, buy one. There's no promise of a 6th generation or what it will look like. And it's okay to own a car that's not in its current generation

Any particular reason you want to go to Johns Hopkins?

Just my $.02... but why would you buy a brand new car to start taking it cross country every couple months... back and forth. Think about the depreciation value. Think about the gas money you are going to spend. The V6 still only gets 25-30mpg and you mentioned getting the SS, which maybe gets 24..advertised. Realisitically, if you can keep your foot our of it..20. You can get a used Cruise or a Sonic...that will get great gas mileage and wont depreciate as fast. Not trying to be a buzz kill..but its just not practical.

You plan to drive that every couple of months. Then after 1 trip you will be flying as it will probably cost less and be a lot quicker.

Your safe. 6th gen is not coming next year. Closest i see a 6th gen is 2015 model year considering we have not even seen one single sketch of it yet.

Man you're so dumb. What they're ACTUALLY doing is putting a 2.0 L turbo in it and making it front wheel drive. People these days...

I was told its going to be a 2.0L 4 banger front wheel for the LS models,
2.0L turbo AWD for the LT. And a 3.5L v6 supercharged AWD for the SS.

My money is on 2016 model year meaning it'll be out late 2015. The typical lifespan these days seems to be 5 years before either a new gen or refresh.

I'm hoping for 2015 or 16. That way they'll have a year or two to work out the kinks before a 50th anniversary edition.

I've read a number of places that they are expecting a release in the fall of 2015, so I would assume it would be the 2016 model.
