SS vs Z28

Ok I read the frequent asked questions ............. but I don't understand this one ......

What will be car trim levels?

Base Camaro featuring the V6. The SS will likely be the base V8. With the Z28 returning as the top level Z06-style road course king perhaps in the second year.



So your telling me that they are going to push the Z28 as the top car over the SS ???????

Seriously ???? WTF ????

Or am I reading this one wrong ???

Z28 will be to Camaro what Z06 is to SS. There's a lot more history to the Z28 before the 4th gen. Z28 was top dog for a lot of years when there was no Camaro SS.

Really you're asking the wrong question. Its not which CAR will be top dog. Obviously the top performing car will be the top model. The question is what name will go on the top car.

Honestly I think the decision has already been made. At the Heritage Center event the night before the NAIAS unveiling, a lot of us impressed upon the engineers and marketing folks what Z28 needs to be, and I gotta say the signs point to them not only hearing us but agreeing with us.

I don't think the decision is made.

Honestly, we (the internet Camaro community) are the minority in the overall sales and input of what the Camaro will be.
