More than just the SS?

Do you think Chevy will have more than just the SS at the reveal?

I think they're gonna come out swinging and have at least one performance package at the unveil, especially with all the track testing we've been seeing. Maybe a 1LE or the sixth gen equivalent.

It's been less than a day and all I can think about is the reveal. Hurry up

I'm guessing launch will just be the I4, V6 and base V8 coupes. Any more than that will be too much for the first year.

I agree. They need to come out with new models every year or two to keep the public interested.

It looked like the reveal is later in the evening. They may just have one car on hand for the event.

I agree that they need a slow roll out of cars, but maybe just have something like a track pack like the mustang has, not necessarily a full blown 1LE. Something just as a teaser of what else is to come.

On the flip side there are people waiting for the big dog that don't want to wait around for 3 years, and will buy competitors cars. Hellcat is hot right now, mustang 350(R) is right around the corner and Gm is going to hold its performance for a year or two? I know there bread and butter is the ss because of the cost but they need something to hold the name up. I don't see too many mags giving cover time to wopping 425hp camaro for long.

If you watch the ring videos one of the cars is sporting a front splitter different from the other cars. I would bet a 1LE is offered pretty quick. And possibly a ZL1 powered by the LT4. Although I think the LT4 car could be held back for 6-12 months.

I lean more on this side. as far as staggered releases to keep interest...I would say the vast majority don'the care beyond the SS just from a cost perspective, I don't see GM doing it for this reason...perhaps there are others, like ZL1 simply isn't ready.

But I'm purely guessing...I have no experience marketing cars.

I'm sure its going to be the same 12 month delay like the vettes have been subjected to with the last 2 Z06's. GM figures enough people will jump on an SS because of the newness then some will jump up to performance model a year later and its a win win for GM. I cant imagine GM strectching it out like the last Camaro Generation. And i think there will be a 1le Varient and the high Hp model. They dont have an NA motor for another Z/28. I guess will see what they will call it.

Z51 package came pretty quick for the c7, why not 1LE ? The Mustang also came with the performance package available right away. I think we will see a performance package available right away, be it 1LE or something similar.

Agreed. ZL1 or Z/28 not likely for at least a year. We might get a reveal on one of those by the time the 6th gen starts hitting dealer lots.

There have been no Nurburgring videos of gen6 car with a supercharger whine that I'm aware of so a ZL1 is a ways out

I'm betting on (hoping for) some kind of 1LE like handling/sport package for the V6/SS models that includes suspension and gears.

GM is under no pressure to release additional Camaro models beyond the I4, V6, and V8 SS. Other manufacturers aren't going to be offering much eihter: Dodge has suspended it's Hellcat sales orders, Ford is reported to be substantially limiting production of both the GT350, and GT350R.

Dodge has suspended ORDERS for the Hellcat, not production of it.

I bet they have a 450hp SS and a 460-470hp 1LE type package almost immediately.

And yes, I do believe there is potential for a smidge more power than a C7 corvette as the Corvette does not have tubular headers but the teaser pics make it appear they are at least an option on the Camaro.

They suspended orders for the hellcat because they cant meet the supply. GM is dreaming this happens with the camaro. If anything this shows that the 60-70K muscle car market is there, longer they wait the more the competitors take customers. The prodction numbers for the 350 are 5000, and 500 for the R. That seems like alot of production to me, and no one is saying its limited to that. just what is expected.

No Dodge is dreaming about selling 500,000 Challengers in 5 years. These higher end cars are not even 20% of volume. The Challenger, Mustang, and Camaro would all be extinct if they depended 2-5k of these cars selling a year. So put things in the right perspective, these cars mean little to the bottom line. They mean more to us because we are enthusiasts, but we keep in mind we need the V6 and I4s to sell extremely well. Only on the profits of those do cars like the Hellcat, ZL1, and GT500s become feasible for the companies to build.

Don't count on it. One of the plant workers said on another forum that they have built "several models".
