LOL because it will be sooo different here in Merica where we dont have unions or an undeserved sense of entitlement....oh wait...

Much respect goes out to the Oshawa plant for the outstanding job they do every day... I have a Camaro that I will cherish for the rest of my life.

As for the 6th Gen Camaro to now be built back int U.S. :flag1:

Who cares about the Blue Oval crowd and their little Ponys? We're getting our Camaro back-and it'll be Supercharged!-MDAII

Condolences to those in Canada as I'm sure it's a loss of something everyone there was proud of, but admittedly I'm very excited at the news. I've always dreamed about touring the Camaro plant and seeing the Camaros go down the line but because it was in Canada that was never an option (darn borders!). I look forward to the production moving to Lansing but I will say that I hope the outstanding pride, commitment, and passion for the Camaro that the Oshawa team has shown will be passed on to the Lansing team when the next-gen Camaro production begins.

Not sure how I feel about this. I feel bad for Oshawa because I feel it's a great source of pride for them. Not that they don't take pride in the other cars they build but the Camaro is special. I know I would love to be the guy that could point to one and say "I put the fenders on that." or "I installed that cars dash." They've done a great job over the years and have been very close to our community.

It does however make more sense for GM to consolidate the cars that are using the alpha platform all under one roof and I know SOME people out there would much rather have it be made in the USA.

I'm proud of my Canada Camaro. Even if it does have a strange way of steering me towards hockey rinks and changes the radio to play clips of the Red Green show on it's own.

Only question now is Alpha (ATS) or Alpha LWB (CTS).

OK - a couple of thoughts....

First - I'm very unhappy to read a couple of the comments on this thread. This should not be about making snide comments as to where we build Camaros -- that's divisive....so please, let's stop that...OK?

Second - I am proud of the men and women of Oshawa - they're doing a great job on all of the products that they build. All of them.

Third - we build RWD cars at Lansing Grand River. No one has said we're going to bring the next Gen Camaro off of Alpha or Sigma -- but I can tell you that Camaros have traditionally been RWD -- and frankly, I'll quote John Heinricy from years ago: "...the ugliest thing in the world would be to have smoke coming from the FRONT tires of a Camaro (or Firebird)..."

I am just glad the Camaro has a bright future ahead of it.... It's great news for everyone. I guarantee the Oshawa plant won't suffer a bit. GM must have future product plans for it.

I like what the GM executive said. Just because they are moving the Camaro to Lansing, does not automatically mean Camaro will have the ATS chassis.

I have wondered about that for a while. The idea that there are (2) Camaros on the lot. One is a 2014 weighing 3900. and a 2015 weighing 3400.

To me that is a drastic change. And it could "bother" the owners who have 2010-2014 models.

For this reason I have wondered what exactly they plan to do. I think people would be ecstatic to see a "new" Camaro that only weighs 3400 lbs or less. But when you do that, it makes the 2010-15 seem like those are inferior and (did not get the meaningful design it should have).

It did take time for the ATS to be developed. (Does the Gen 5 V8 fit into the ATS chassis? I have never checked on that. Surely it does. and if it doesn't, then they would make it fit for the Camaro I assume...)

Also, the ATS does not seem like it is all that wide. I'm curious what a Camaro-type of body shape would look like on that size chassis....
