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.

ss to my knowledge has always been an add on to the z28 cars badging, chrome, maybe wheels

if this is true then the z28 is some thing like a base model v8, making the the ss the top dog in history but who can tell in the years to come wat will happen

alrite the words in the even my 40 year old parents say the ss is the biggest baddest dog they should know since they both owned cars like that. SUPER SPORT sounds alot more bada** than Z28 same as Cobra over GT and Challenger over Charger i think also in the years when we lost the ss and the choices were rs z28 or iroc we lost the feeling that most showed to the ss and had to turn there attention to the z28

Like has been said before, any Chevy can be an SS, only Camaro can be a Z28.
You beat me to it! :lol:

Just a thought. Mention 'Z28', and 'Camaro' immediately comes to mind. 'SS' can mean several Chevrolet's. ;) Also, 'Z28' has more of a history, ie; Trans Am racing, etc.

To me, it really doesn't matter. All I know is I plan on owning the "top tier" Camaro, whatever it's called. ;)

Z28 has been available since 1967 and was part of the lineup more years total than SS was.

SS it too generic......every car in the Chevy lineup has an SS model.....Camaro needs something unique and Z28 deserves better than to be the bland base V8 car it ended up being at the end. That's NEVER what it was before.

Come On! Z28 is nothing more then a codename if that! SS STANDS for something and most people know what that it stands for if the z28 was top then whats so super about the SS ... If SS isint topdog then whats the point of having Super in the name if a z28 can smoke it the SS then i guess its not super at all i guess GM can call it sportcamaro or something retarted..this is why the ss has 2 b topdog if not it will tottaly confuse people
