Do we have a chance to see a "LTZ" Camaro?

How many people would like to see some type of "LTZ" or luxury trim added to the Camaro lineup? With the impending addition of the 4 Cyl engine, who thinks GM will add some sort of luxury package to open camaro up to the type of people who buy Audi's and BMW's for their luxury?

Camaro LTZ with the twin turbo LF3 and 8 speed would be amazing.

Probably never happen. Lol.

Sounds like the idea behind the Berlinetta trim offered in the 2nd and 3rd generation.
I believe the original trim level was known as the Type LT during the 2nd generation.

The LTZ would probably be the 4 cylinder ecoboost tier.

Nobody shopping BMW or Audi will consider Camaro. But they could steal some sales from other makers. I think its a good idea, maybe like the 3LT package in the Vette. 3SS anyone?

The ATS-V will have the LF3, to compete with its natural competition.

A Camaro with LF3 would be a great pre-emptive strike BEFORE (or in answer to) a Mustang EcoBoost V6 and, for that very reason, shouldn't be discounted...

The only luxury feature I'd like in a Camaro is magnaride. But this is coming from a guy who never had cruise control, power doors/windows and bluetooth before 2012.

Yes they will - I'm one of them. Left a Lexus SC430 for a Camaro. Sacrificed some creature comforts for the look, but I would love to have them back.

Bring on all the luxury items we can - preferably cooled seats

Just don't call it a Camaro. Why take the rawness out of the heritage. Might as well cut its nutz off too.

Again, this is not a new idea. The Berlinetta trim was offered on the Camaro from 1979 to 1986. The Berlinetta was essentially the luxury Camaro.

What, from the outset, you're asking for was/is a combo of TWO Camaros that sat side-by-each @ SEMA '09: Dusk (interior exercise, largely), and Leno (TT-V6)...

Im sorry but I dont theink American Build quality will ever be up to par to comete with the Germans. You may get some "version" of it, but never 100% I owned an Audi , (the number 1 German bulider), and even with 140,000 miles on it there were no rattles inside and it felt like brand new every time you hit a bump. Realistically you cant say that about american cars after 20,000 miles or so.

I say your wrong, but I don't expect to change your opinion with one post.

Also, I find it funny how people like to compare your everyday Ford and Chevy products to the likes of Audi, and then complain about things like soft touch panels and blah blah blah.

Here is the thing...Fords and Chevys are CHEAPER for a reason!

The build quality is just fine. You want the fancy stuff, go pay the fancy prices.

I'd be more than happy paying more for the amenities. I don't think anyone would expect some of those luxury items to come stock. I understand it's not necessarily part of everyone's concept of what a Camaro "should" be, but why not offer the option for those that would enjoy it/pay for it? It can only increase the audience of those interested.

So how did the Berlinetta fare in the long term....oh...yeah.

There's nothing wrong with offering "upscale" appointments, but there's a different buyer list for those cars, called SS sedan, or CTS-V, etc. The Camaro legacy doesn't seem to be synonymous with "luxury". Maybe since every car company is going soft with their lazy creature comforts for selling them, so it might work, though.

Maybe I'm behind the times, but the way I think about an luxury Camaro is- you just don't put chrome wheels and a leather seat on a lawn tractor and think it's upscale. Just sayin'.

I agree, that should be a Cadillac vs. BMW issue.

Before that it was the "Type LT". Ford started it with the Mustang offering the Mustang Grande back in 69.
