Lots of vehicles seem to have many things that should be able to be changed that would require only a small change software wise.
For example my cobalt ss had a digital lcd gauge with a few different screens. Like screen 1 displays certain parameters screen 2 displays others but there was no way to have a custom screen with exactly the parameters you wanted.
I think the main reason is because they feel there is no need or competition that would push them to have this feature the other is it may over complicate things , and somebody may make an unintended change they do not know how to reverse , causing extra warranty visits , complaints , and all that extra spending/bad publicity

The interior IMO will be much better....the new trucks, and my girlfriends 2014 impala have very nice interiors.

The new camaro needs to lose some weight like 300lbs for v8spec. The interior has to use less plastic, more aluminum. It has to have better sight lines for the front especially.

Interior less plastic! Glove box light would be nice....More options would be nice like carbon fiber and different leather colors. More technology like a screen for a spedo just like the vette... Launch control in the v6 and also a V6 performance package would attract younger buyers. As far as styling. Shorter more aggressive front and rears....vented fenders-THAT WORK------LED lighting in the WHOLE CAR. Smaller steering wheel to make the car feel smaller......rev match would be a nice option for manual guys. Different driving modes that actually change the way the car drives would make a impact on the track and daily driving....To help the people that say there are blind spots, well what about blind spot protection.....I know all of these things will make the car cost more but it will translate into a better Camaro.

Give me more compartment space.... The center console doesn't cut it. Don't like leaving any items left in plain view, asking for someone to break into your car, so the area beneath mylink is useless. Cup holders could be deeper.

Otherwise, this car is awesome. :)

Wow, no comments about more durable and chip resistant paint yet....

The 2014 Stingray (wet I believe) weighs 3444.....

The 6th gen Camaro needs to weigh 3500-3650 dry. Anything less is unreasonable.

Well for the Z/28 I was hoping that they would actually make it look more unique( look) than slapping wheels and tires on it. They should ve changed the front end and make it uniquely z28 just like the zL1 has a look that is uniquely ZL1, I know it's a track car ready but using the same ss bumper and not including the fog lights while retaining the actual housing is stupid.

I am confused about # 18. My 2013 1LE has covers over the visor mirrors. What year is your car?

I agree about dual climate controls. My wife likes the car colder than I do.

I love the less weight idea.

If they don't improve visibility, I'd like to see the blind spot warning system in the side mirrors like the 2014 Impala has.

Agree with the lumbar support also.

Other than that, I love my 2013 2SS 1LE. And, I might also point out that my center console cover is NOT hard plastic. So, it does not bother my elbow at all.

improve the paint, winshields, and less interior plastic.

In addition to all of the buttons currently on the steering wheel, which means I don't want lose any current functions, I would like radio seek up and down buttons on the steering wheel.

So that when traveling through new towns I can seek through the entire range of FM or AM without having to take my hands off the wheel. This would be a huge help.

Or if not on the driver's side, please make it smaller and more polished looking. What we have right now is one big honkin' lever. We don't need that much leverage to pull the parking brake.

The SS needs to bench marked off the 1LE at least. The SS handled poorly and had to be updated to the FE4 and further improved on with the 1LE.

Chevy needs to switch the steering wheel controls. The entertainment controls should be on the left side, cruise control on the right, because if you have a manual transmission, you can adjust volume, etc. while shifting. You obviously would not be shifting while using the cruise control settings, so their placement on the right side would not be a problem.
