I would expect for GM to Price the Camaro as follows:

LS
24,999.00

LT
27,999.00

LT/RS
29,999.00

SS (Auto) L99
31,999.00

SS (6 speed) LS3
34,999.00

SS/RS
39,999.00

Maybe I'm being too optimistic, but I bet you're pretty far off. Usually auto tranny's are more $$ than manuals...and an extra $5k for RS (halo lights & tinted taillights) is probably a bit much. IMO, the SS/RS will be around $35k, maybe a tad under...can't see paying more than that for what the RS package includes.

I hope you're wrong, or they lost me. And why the heck would an Auto be cheaper than an M6? That's not consistent. It's a $925 upgrade on the Cobalt. You're adding $3000 just to get the LS3 with an M6?

And the L99 gets the gas guzzler tax to make it the same price as the LS3 manuel. This is what they did with the GTO. This is what I am affraid of in pricing. I do not want a V6 so if the V8s are 35k then I am pretty sure I will be buying a used one a year or 2 down the road :( My problem is I will be upside down in my trade and cannot/will not afford near 40K
I was under the impression none of them will get the gas tax (was brought up last week when all the new info came out)...because of the skip-shift on the M6 and the AFM on the A6.

See, here's the big problem. They finally confirmed the tech specs (most of them, anyways), so now all we have to worry about is pricing. And we are worried, as you can tell. So now we have 5 months of people putting out price lists that are once again....speculation. I think I'm going to go find Luwinkle, he had the right idea. All this worrying and wondering is driving me crazy.

Me worried to.
And as far as gas guzzler tax your prolly right.
I was just typing frantically and submitted before I read it then whent back and edited it out. But thet did do that with the GTO. Although the Camaro will have all 6 speed transmissions.

:confused:TOTALLY AGREE...the info release last Friday was great, but everyone was pissed when nothing new was release yesterday and now...all this worry about prices. I stopped looking at some other Camaro forums because once again "the sky is falling" (usually doesn't fall as much here).

Hopefully they'll be releasing some SS pictures/video soon to hold us over, or it's going to be a long 5 months. Just keep on thinking..."competitively priced with the mustang". GM needs this car to be a huge hit and can't over-price it because of it's "21 century technology"...I just hope they realize it.:D Once again, we have to keep the faith.:BangHead:

The LS3 with the 6 speed manual is going to be a premium since it is the true high performance (corvette style) engine package, I see the L99 as the base SS, less horsepower and more fuel efficient, GM will push this due to EPA regulations.

If this just means base prices, then that scares me, because I want the SS/RS. That's the part of the sky that's falling on me.

I think you're just a bit off level here. The base Mustang MSRP is $19735 (http://www.fordvehicles.com/Cars/mustang/). Add around $1000 more for a Camaro and you get a base MSRP of $20735.

So here's the list based off of a 2009 Ford Mustang plus about $1000 at each model level (http://www50.forddirect.fordvehicle...essZipCode=silent&processModel=&statetoken=):

LT: $20735

LS: $22735

SS A6: $27425

SS M6: $29375

For verts, add about $5000 to each model level. Going by Ford's site, it looks like the RS package is about $1500 and to fully deck out at each level is about $5000.

So for a list complete with packages and options we have:

LT
Base: $20735
RS: $22235
Vert/Loaded: $25735
Loaded Vert: $30735

LS
Base: $22735
RS: $24235
Vert/Loaded: $27735
Loaded Vert: $32735

SS A6
Base: $27425
RS: $28925
Vert/Loaded: $32425
Loaded Vert: $37425

SS M6
Base: $29375
RS: $30875
Vert/Loaded: $34375
Loaded Vert: $39375

This is all just speculation and personal opinion at this point. Hopefully this gives you all some idea of the ballpark we're all in.

My money says you're wrong, and at least 3K (hopefully 4K) too high. These prices are not competetive with a challenger or a stang....

yeah, but it's basically the same engine (both 6.2L)...and based on those 0-60 and 1/4 times that came out this morning...performance is almost identical as well.

89RS>>>I'd be happy with those prices.;)

I think for similar pricing, just look at the G8 MSRP...I would think it's going to be in the same ballpark.

Remember GM said that the Camaro would be sold at a premium compared to the Mustang...Compare the real performance and options between the two.

Expect the Camaro to be at least 3K more across the board compared to the Mustang and even more for the luxury and advantage of having a Corvette engine.

No. Now you're taking John Fitzpatrick's statement out of context (http://www.5thgen.org/forum/showthread.php?t=7056) Here it is, word for word:

When pricing is announced later this year, you'll find that our price is competitive with comparable Mustangs and Challengers.
I don't know about you, but I do fear the black suburbans:D
