I like that interior SO much better than the concepts, although it's not too far off.

GM did a much better job on the retro conversion than Ford or Chrysler did. The Camaro is just about perfect to symbolize the modern muscle car.

The interior looks high quality and well done, but the design is pretty ugly; the center stack and dash in particular. I suppose it is supposed to look dated though.

I get this strange feeling that we've seen this before.

Not my cup of tea at all I'm afraid, I think Ford's Mustang has more attractive "retro" styling. A droptop however would improve the looks dramatically for me.

That said, the Camaro's interior looks diabolically cheap and nasty - and again, trumped by the Mustang.

Is it just me or does it looka bit tall and narrow inj the photos? It must be the angle. I want to see more photos of it.

I might NOT miss Pontiac if Chevy keep this up.

Now about how about this rubbing off on the HHR, Impala, and Cruze?

I don't get how or why people are calling it cheap lookig. It looks very nice.

What No Navigation?

Gorgeous car outside. Interior needs more warming up. But looks good quality, I certainly do not find it cheap.

So... broken embargo or a conveninent 'leak'?

Re looks, I have absolutely no comment: as Satty posted, we've been seen this before (both in white and black) :lol:

A plus in my opinion. Just one less distraction to take my eyes off of the road and my attention away from the car.

OK....I'll get this off my chest.....I absolutely HATE that interior. I've hated it from day one when we saw the first prototype units, and I hate it just as much now. It would be a deal-killer for me actually if not for the fact that I feel (due to GM's recent improvements) the fit-and-finish and quality of the switchgear (CTS stalks....) will be pretty nice.....but styling-wise? YUK......

OK.....now I love the exterior styling of this car! But damn, doesn't it look fat and heavy.....especially the rear? I bet this car will come in around 4,000lbs.

The only feature I really don't like is the placement of the back-up lights. But that's a minor detail I guess.

I don't think that this means there is no navigation. If it's an RS interior as well, then obviously it's probably not top-of-the-line. The interior looks neither cheap nor amazing, just acceptable. If I had to guess, I'd say the materials aren't as good as the GTO's, but obviously it is hard to guess from just these pictures. If the interior is only slightly better than the Mustang, I hope they offer a "nice interior" upgrade so that those who care about the interior can have a pretty nice one. The "premium interior" in the Mustang is worlds better than the base Mustang, though it's still pretty mediocre.

I agree the interior is kinda blah, but I used to hate it and now it seems acceptable. As for weight, the article said 3700lbs.

Can we expect pricing similar to the Mustang or $2-3k more for comparable models?

Actually the Mustang GT is more expensive than I thought. I was thinking $25k for it, but its $27k including destination. Oh well, guess this isn't my car, after all...

Wow.... absolutely awesome.

I'm still pissed about a certain *cough-cough-B-pillar* topic that bugs me

to no end, BUT I will say that this is the most exciting product launch for

a non-Corvette Chevy in over a decade. That interior is great.

And also, like I predicted, the production headlights are much nicer IMHO.

they give the car more personality and fit the fascia much better.

Overall I give it a solid A, however if this was a hardtop I'd be putting

down a deposit at the dealership. Maybe i WILL buy one new... a skilled

body man should be able to do the metal work for a hardtop conversion &

the rest I can do myself. :D

If 3700 pounds and 52/48 balance is for the V8, that is pretty good. The V6 should be near 50/50 and 3600 pounds perhaps. But if the V6 car is 3700, then the V8 is probably 3850 or more, and then we have another overweight GM car. They picked the right engines for this car though, I hope they never offer some bargain basement engine so they can sell them as rentals like Ford does with the Mustang.

I love the rear end of this car, the front looks good, but it is kind of retro, and retro styling wears our quickly. The concept came 2-3 years ago, plus it is still a year from production, after a couple years on the market that front end will have been around for 5+ years, so it might look dated.

Interior is okay. I don't like the G6/HHR/Aveo circular A/C vents on the side, for one they look cheap, and two, the center vents are rectangular. Why aren't they all squared off or all rounded? The center stack with all those gauges I am not a fan of either. The HVAC controls look odd, they should have done a more streamlined and integrated unit, perhaps not corporate radio/hvac but something better than that. Too retro looking on the interior. The materials and fit/finish seem fine in the pictures (that has to be judged in person though) and adequate for the class, but nothing amazing.

Hot Hot Hot! A great looking car, inside and out. I love the unique interior... and I'm glad it's not "new GM generic", in the trend started by the CTS (which I love, but it seems every subsequent new GM product will copy the CTS interior to a point).

Agreed!

The radio and HVAC controls could be toned down a bit. Maybe it would look better if they weren't protruding so much... Otherwise, I really like the interior!
