6th Gen Camaro Features

So with the sixth gen coming possibly 2015 it is a nice time to all decide what we would like to see in the 6th gen. Hopefully GM and Chevy reps see this thread I know there are people from GM on this site. So keep this thread alive and state what options you want.

this may be heresy to some here, but i would like to see the ability to see your instantaneous MPG, as well as the average mpg.

i would also like to see a tt v6, but not at the cost of the v8 model. a tt v8 would be SICK!

A smaller frame and a lighter weight is all it needs.

Less weight, direct injection, less weight, keep the V8 in the SS, less weight, better steering feedback, less weight.

Oh, one more thing...less weight.

Here are my opinions.

2010 steering wheel
Heritage Grill Stock
LESS WEIGHT
Get rid of the LS Wheels
RS Halos Stock
MORE COLORS
MORE OPTIONS
ZL1 Style Front End
LS7
Flappy Paddles bigger LOL
More trunk room
IMPROVE THE WEBSITE

GM PLEASE, THE CAMARO IS A FANTASTIC CAR DEF. BETTER THAN MUSTANG AND CHALLENGER BUT THE OPTIONS ARE ENDLESS ON THEIR CARS.

Gas cap on the left side, please.

Edit: And a locking door for it with a lever release.

The 6th gen definitely needs an upgraded dashboard and gages.
It was proper decorum to go with the retro style.........BUT, the Camaro dashboard must now be sporty and exciting.
The sooner the better.

I find the trunk is already huge for a sports car.

I'd keep the cap on the right side. I personally like it there. And I'd get rid of the "cap" all together. My fiesta doesn't have a cap, just that quick fill hole that came from the race program.

The instant reading on the fuel reading is pretty much worthless, probably why they don't have it.
My Corvette has that, but what good does it do?
Very easy to make it read in the 50 to 60 mpg range by just letting off the throttle going down a long grade.
But then watch it drop into the single digits going up a hill.

Instant means nothing, other than the amount of fuel flowing that "instant".
It is constantly changing.

At least with the average reading, you'll get an idea of what real fuel mileage your getting.

We just don't know what the design will look like yet.

Most design features of the next gen are probably already "locked in" based on the long lead time on all GM vehicles.

Lighter weight and more HP. I love my SS but having to spend a lot of jack just to get this heavy beast moving is kind of ridiculous.

Lighter weight, smaller V8 + better gas milage, more options such as suspension up grades. Better 6-speed shifter. Better sounding exhaust.

I would imagine whatever V8 the Corvette ends up with will be really similar to the 6th gens

These people won't be happy until they are able to magically suspend their 56OZ big gulps in midair in the interior, without spillage of course.
