I have owned my Camaro 2LS since last May and absolutely love it. But sometimes when I get up next to a SS or even a LT with the R/S package, I cant help but feel like the person in that car looks at me and is saying.."get a real Camaro buddy"! What is the general consensus of the LS Camaro?
I don't think they are thinking that. I actually considered buying a V6...but then I got a better deal on the SS I have. And even if not for the deal I personally knew that I would have had an inferiority complex as soon as an SS pulled up. But now that I have an SS, I don't feel superior to any V6 out there. Heck I LOVE when another Camaro, V6 OR V8, pulls up next to me. And I'll drive normal or give it some gas regardless!! Because it's fun!! And it looks cool as hell when 2 Camaros are driving side by side!!
I personally think that all trim packages exist for a specific reason and I like them all. I even like the LS rims...they look badass to me, as I stated in another thread!! In fact, the LS is probably the way to go if you plan on serious exterior and performance mods. I mean why buy the optioned out model just to buy new rims, a body kit, an exhaust, a sound system, and then twin turb that ***** (excuse my language, lol!!) ??!! And look at it this way, some people simply like the body style. Some people want a 2 door car that is sporty and moderately fast with good gas mileage. This is who the LS targets. Because if it weren't for the LS, those people would buy a stripped down 2 door Altima. So Chevy and Ford and Dodge made a way to get this cool body style without all the extras at a competitive price. And look at it this way, my SS sucks up around $60 a week in gas. That comes out to $240/month. And I work 3 nights a week with approx a 15 mile commute. Outside of that I drive 6 miles round trip to my gym every day. If I had a family or worked 60 miles away then I would be nuts to keep this car, lol!!
So in my opinion, the LS is a great package. And even among the SS guys the 2SS/RS LS3 guys look down at the 1SS L99 guys. And someone with a 2013 2SS/RS convertible can look down at my 2010 2SS/RS LS3. And even if you did have an LT/RS or an SS of any year, the GT-500 and ZL-1 and Vette guys would look down at you. And the ZR-1, Viper, GT-R, Lambo, Ferrari guys look down at them. There is always something bigger, better, and badder...
