Nope, if they do it too early it may hurt sales of the current gen. Only reason you got so much info for the 5th gen is because there was no current model.

Do you think it will be so soon? With the exception of 1st Gens, they have a pretty long run life.
Gen 1 3 years 67-69
Gen 2 12 years 70-81
Gen 3 11 years 82-92
Gen 4 10 years 93-02

2017 would be on par.

I think GM is anxious to build an even better Camaro, but I agree with JustCraig. 2017 might be a bit too long, but I would guess 2015 at the earliest. We're only on the fourth year of this body style. The C6 Corvette has been around since 2005... it's pretty typical for sports cars to have a longer period of time between generations.

I heard 2015 was supposed to be the year for the 6th gen, but only those who need to know know for sure (as sure as they can be). What I wonder is if there will be any slight body mods to the 5th gen before they release the 6th gen?

Yes. With CAFE standards hitting around the same time as well as a mustang redesign the 5th generation will have a short run like the first generation.

I wouldn't expect anything for another year or so.

They realized that by taking longer to release a new iteration gives them more time to 1 up on Ford.

Same formula as the 5th gen.

I thought 2015 model year was already confirmed. If so it will be at least another year or more before things even start leaking out.

Can we go more than a few days without a post regarding the next generation Camaro? This generation has barely started. Let's embrace it instead of worrying about what's to come.

I don't see any reason to make dramatic changes for at least another few years. 6th Gen can wait until 2016-2017 as far as I'm concerned.

I agree with those who say 2016-2017, this 5th gen isn't going anywhere soon considering how well they sell & how much the public loves the design. GM will likely just keep updating the Interior w/ new gadgets, and such and new appearance packages for the exterior.
