Exclusive: Chevrolet Camaro To Get New Interior for 2012

From Edmunds: http://blogs.insideline.com/straight...-for-2012.html

But now men cry out in public and want a non-crappy interior in their Camaro. One problem: The new Camaro's interior is indeed on the crappy side. A GM insider confirmed for us that the company is hard at work now on a substantially reworked interior for the Camaro that will appear for the 2012 model year. He couldn't/wouldn't list all of the changes, but did mention that most of the upgrading work will go into the dash and specifically that big expanse of blackness in front of the passenger. We're betting the work will include substantially more than just a new dash cap and will -- please, please, please -- include a new, less-stupidly shaped steering wheel and primary gauges designed with readability as a higher priority than some ill-considered retro style.

Also new for the 2012 will be a little something called the Camaro Z28. Perhaps you've heard of it once (or a million times) before. Why wait until the 2012 model year? Our source says so it doesn't step on the toes to the convertible which will be the Camaro's "big news for 2011."

Hopefully it's better than what they have now.

I'm actually surprised there were only 4 replies to this thread. Hearsay or not, these sort of topics usually bring everyone out.

Well i am saving up to buy a Camaro and when i am finally able to afford one.... They will have whatever they have, be it a Z28 being out, a different interior, TTops etc. So all i can is wait and see what comes out

I love the interior.. Plenty of people have complimented it too. I doubt there will be a wholesale change this early in the production cycle.

2010 Camaro Inferno Orange RS/SS M6.
2007 GMC Sierra Black LBZ Duramax.

wouldn't it be less than 2 years? if the Z28 is supposed to be for 2012, we should start seeing it late 2011 perhaps? it will replace the SS, no? hopefully it will be cheaper than a base model Vette.
