I know a guy who knows a guy who used to work for DCX but is currently working for GM. I was tickling his brain trying to get some new info about the Camaro and this is what he told me

He said:

2009 CAMARO [PRODUCTION DATE - 7 DECEMBER 08] -I had to laugh when I saw the date - Pearl Harbor....:)
-Base model 3.6 V6
-Regular LS2 V8 [mid range version]
-SS Camaro should follow within 6-12 months LS7 V8 [GMPD]

Also they are currently working on a four-door Chevelle Model to compete with the Charger based on the stretch Zeta platform. Strange!

Anything word about pricing? I'd like to see how they price the LS7 in respect to the Z06.

It always starts with Chevy, then spreads to the other divisions.

We can only hope...

The chevelle seems a bit weird i really need to see a rendering to get an idea but not so sure I'll like it.?

Is the Chevelle based on the current Malibu or a different model?

thats true but i have heard rumors (mind you rumors so im not saying they are true) that it will be similarly priced to the Mustang. 19k-25k for the V6, 26k-34k for the V8.

chevelle with a LS2/7 or the new uber-sekrat LS42 would be cool....like a V but maybe with less options, auto, and 10K less

I'm thinking that new Hemi Challenger looks better.

From that angle ^^^ the nose looks Mustangish.
They need to change that black plastic looking grill though, cheapens the appearance IMO.

^^ Agree. I hope they don't mess it up too much for mass production.

I like both the Camaro and the Challenger and look forward to both coming out, although my favorite Camaro is the 2nd generation (split bumper) 1970-1973...

I doubt it will be a 3.6. I expect the 3.9 instead.

I like the sound of a new Chevelle. A lot.

The Camaro's design is meh, Challenger looks 1000% more kick ass.
