Post Official 6th gen Camaro FACTS Thread

This thread is for posting known facts about the 6thgen Camaro. Post what you know with a link proving it.

FACT—The 6thgen Camaro will be built in Lansing, Michigan alongside its Alpha platform mate the Cadillac ATS (GM).

Things we can reasonably expect (NOT FACTS):
  • available 8-speed automatic
  • LT1 engine (SS model)
  • turbo-4 (competes directly with Ford turbo-4 Mustang and imports)
  • evolutionary styling
  • significant weight reduction

Additional facts provided by SuperSound! Appreciate the help! Will edit when I get to a PC to clean up the post. As of 4/27/15
