6th gen reveal and Detriot autoshow

I've seen other threads and the possible reveal date, nothing solid. So I came accross this for the detroid auto show. Doesn't look promising here either.

What in there leads you to believe the 6th gen will not be revealed?

well in looking in other threads right below mine (http://www.camaro6.com/forums/showthread.php?t=387737) there was a small segment that its "rumored". Now, I would have imagined it would have been a possible mentioned in the article that a debut of the new 6th gen. I still have high hopes for Detroit.

I wouldn't read into it, a reveal like this is not typically leaked in advance...

If it's going to be revealed at the Detroit show, we'll probably know something after Christmas.

If the premier IS at Detroit, it will be kept super top-secret. We MAY get lucky, as Z/28Forever said, and get a hint dropped after Christmas.

Did you kids notice that the Chevy presentation is the VERY FIRST ONE scheduled for Monday, January 12? Coincidence? I think not.

Is the CTS-V also getting revealed at this show? Possibly the Tuesday Caddy presentation?

The CTS-V engine details will tell us a lot about the future for the gen6.

I think the CTS-V has a better chance of being revealed in Detroit than the Camaro. Pretty sure it's coming with the LT4 judging from what Ive read on here. I thought GM said the Camaro wasn't being revealed in Detroit and that they had no plans for the reveal yet?

They never officially said it wasn't coming. In a light-on-facts article a month or so ago, USA Today reported that someone at GM said 'there were no plans.'

Brand Chevrolet is leading off the Monday press conference. That's the prime spot... with everyone's attention. If not then, when? New York? With no Buick or GMC press conferences at NAIAS, obviously they're saving their 2nd tier brands for the 2nd tier show(s).

It's happening. 1/12.

I remember GM being purposely vague not saying yes or no on Detroit...that was my take anyway. This was what...couple months ago...

I don't know more than anybody else but consider this...where was the concept unveiled? Detroit NAIAS. Convertible concept? Detroit NAIAS the following year. The 2010 production model? Warren.

I just have a hard time seeing them doing it elsewhere. What's the Muscle Car culture in New York like? Nothing compared to Detroit.

The only doubt comes from whether or not GM is really gonna pack the CTS-V, Volt, and Camaro all into one auto show, but I don't think doing so is far fetched at all.

The 2010 Camaro was not revealed at a show. It was a private event based on what I could find on Google. I guess they figured that's all that it needed with the concept being revealed earlier.

I would be surprised if GM wastes the prime time reveal slot on Volt with the Camaro still not being shown to the public.

I would like to see the new Camaro in Detroit but I believe that the 2014 refresh and Z/28 were revealed in New York. We need an official rumor to confirm.

A refresh isn't as big a deal as a new generation.

It was revealed at an event at the Warren Technical (Engineering) Center, in Warren, MI - just north of Detroit. That's why I used it to support my belief that it will be at NAIAS.

Also IMO the Volt is HUGE for GM. Sure not from an income, volume, or market share perspective but it's existence creates a halo effect and generates (hopefully) good PR. They want people talking about their alternative energy options.

The New York Auto Show is in April. If GM is going to launch this as a 2016 model, that's quite late. NAIAS makes more sense, at least in terms of generating hype.

This is key, Chevy is going first for a reason people. They want to make a big splash and not with a car like the Volt. Camaro revealing in t minus 30 days

There is some speculation that GM will be announcing/displaying several items at the Detroit show and are afraid that if they unveil the 6th gen, it'll draw too much attention from their other announcements that they want to be front and center.

Who knows.

Thats possible. However, if they reveal the Volt, the CTS-V and 6gen Camaro, i dont think any of the cars will steal eachothers thunder. The Volt is for the treehuggers and to show people they are in the game. A game that could be a gamechanger in a few years time. The CTSV, i dont know exactly who their buyers are, but i suspect not too many people crosshop the caddy and camaro. They are 2 cars built for different purposes. 1 is a muscle car. The other is a luxury tourer, a BMW M5 fighter perhaps..

I honestly believe these 3 vehicles revealed at the same time would garner GM the maximum amount of attention available at the moment. It would call for all car freaks attention. Not "just" camaro lovers if they were revealed at different events at different dates, they would not gather as much hype.

Being that GM is the first to hold a press conference, i believe they take are going for the guns drawn approach. An all in strategy. Reveal, "sit back" for the rest of the event and watch what happens

Im so stoked.. Im positive they will reveal it 12/1
