Typically that is the time frame the new model year cars start hitting the dealers.

I know a production date has been scheduled, just don't know if the exact date was ever made known.

If you had to best guess, when you estimate?

I don't mean for this to come out as me being a jerk, but if you don't work for GM, why can't you tell us what you know?

Cause I really don't know. Like I said, the date's been scheduled, just nobody outside GM knows or is talking.

GM's really locked down the 6th gen. It's odd, actually. Never seen them act like this before.

No, C7 didn't get fully leaked until a few days before the reveal at Detroit but there was plenty of small stuff that got out. I think a dealer service manual was leaked.

Then it won't be a 2016 Camaro and there will be half a year of production gap. Don't think that's likely given the Mustang sales lead at this point.

Because it doesn't make business sense. I don't know when the model year starts/stops, but I do that that, economically speaking, it is a poor decision to release your product significantly later than the competition; it gives them a chance to establish themselves, and causes you to loose sales from people who would have bought your product had it been released.

Legally in the US a manufacturer can label a car a 2017 model on 1/2/16 as an example. So if they wait that long they won't call it a 2016.

hypercarfanatic is right, it would not make business sense to wait that long and leave a gap in production too.

They can. Doesn't mean they will.

Buick Cascada is launching in early 2016 and is still a 2016 model.

Yep they can. The Buick is a brand new model correct? Seems this happens more often on a new car introduction than a new generation of an existing car. Would you agree?

What we really need to find out is when 5th gen production is officially shutting down. That will gives us a better idea of what to expect.

The only issue with that is that the 6th gen will be produced in a different plant than the 5th gen, so the end of production of the 5th gen doesn't necessarily have anything to do with the start of 6th gen production.
