6th Gen Camaro Soon?

I know the 2010 camaro is a brand new generation but I'm curious to know when they might have a new one. I've seen other makes and models where the car does so good, it only takes a few years for a new model to be made.

Anyone?

Yeah, that's the general census at this point, seeing as how any other generation for the ponies has lasted roughly 10 years.

I doubt 2015 will be an entirely new generation. Most likely just a face lift and a new power plant.

According to a report from Motortrend with sources from GM, they are planning on redesigning the Camaro in 2014 (for the 2015 Camaro) to make it smaller and lighter. Based on the Alpha platform, as opposed to this generation's Zeta platform.

We'll see, but if it looks anything like the current design, I would be very interested in this.

Here's the article.

I see no need for change soon, these Camaro's are the best ever made, I would like to see a good run like the 3rd gen's 82 -92 had.

Sadly in the era of CAFE..that wont happen.

I wont be shocked, sad..but not shocked, if the V8's are no longer an option and we're left with supercharged or turbocharged V6's as engine options in the SS.

These new regulations that are coming down the pike are serious folks, very serious. They're pretty freaking strict and if V8's are an "option" they'll carry a massive, massive tax (like $4000+) to help GM pay for "fines" from the government for daring to produce a V8 engine.

Competition will be the main cause for change on this

I would hate for the camaro to be smaller, light is ok but smaller is bad, i want it to be big and mean!

I also heard you won't have to worry about the aftermarket hover conversion anymore, It's an LPO option.

The great thing about them... if you hit 88 mph you will be able to time travel!!!!

Now...


The bad thing... government has deemed them environmental hazards if they go over 70, so no time travel!

That's because the government doesn't want anyone to travel back in time and NOT vote for Obama. He'll do anything to maintain his death grip on America.

i think thats a good idea to make it smaller and lighter cuz this is a big and heavy car. they should keep the same looks for design wise just smaller and it would look rly cool

I'm hitting the reset button on life, going back to school to finish my degree and start a new career. I was hoping to get a z/28 in 2012, but the way things are looking I changed that to a 6th gen hopefully around 2015. Can't wait for the new alpha platform and the DI gen 5 V8's!
