2010 Chevrolet Camaro: assembly line photo
Several photos have emerged online showing what appears to be a 201 Chevrolet Camaro production body shell on an assembly line. It's no
known exactly what's going on in the photos, but it looks like G might be testing out the assembly process and equipment for the ne Camaro, which will commence series production in February 2009
As previously reported, the Camaro will make its debut at th
Indianapolis Motor Speedway in September
Most recently, spy photographers captured some of the best images o
the upcoming muscle car to date including a sneak peek at the car' interior. The Camaro's cabin closely mirrors the concepts' a expected and its fit and finish and quality of materials looks t be much better than in previous prototypes, indicating the car i ready for its September reveal. The last time the Camaro's interio was spotted, it was clearly in prototype form
Aside from the car's headlights and a few other finishing touches, th
Camaro looks like it is ready for production
The test car's exhaust appears to be diverging from the show car'
setup and looks more inline with what we can expect from th road-going version
A close up of the Camaro's wheel also reveals the car's tire size
275 40 R 20
GM officials have yet to say exactly what engines the Camaro will b
offered with. However, GM chairman Bob Lutz referred to the V8 a "big," lending possible credence to the earlier report o an all-new 6.2L V8 would be the top-end motor. GM has alread confirmed a V6 model will be offered to do battle with low-en Mustangs and Challengers, but a turbocharged four-cylinder is stil not out of the question. The automaker hopes to sell as many a 100,000 units annually, Lutz said last year
Overall, the body shape looks very similar to the Camaro Concept
Apparently, GM has added a B-pillar to the Camaro's body structur for added strength. Otherwise, the car is virtually unchanged fro the concept, as GM has promised
Circle Monday, February 16, 2009 on your calendar as the date the ne
2010 Camaros will start heading down the production line at th Oshawa plant in Ontario
In actuality, this means it will more than likely be mid-March befor
you'll be able to put your hands on one at a dealership. That put Camaro availability about a year behind that of its nearest rival the Dodge Challenger
A few GM higher ups have stated that the General will start makin
Camaros in late 2008. That's true, but, a little misleading. Salable pilot build, Camaros will be the cars rolling down the line in lat 2008. This run of cars will be given to engineers, execs and manager to drive for some fast feedback on any last minute changes that migh need to be made to the car or the production process. This productio run will not be available to the general public to buy
For those seeking a convertible Camaro, you'll have to wait unti
Monday, December 7, 2009 a little bit late for the 2009 convertibl season in northern climates. Look for them to start showing up a dealers in late December or early January depending on where you ar in the United States
It's also worth mentioning that these dates are valid as of today. I
the Camaro program should hit a snag in its final testing regimens delays of several days to a few weeks or months are always possible but unlikely
GM executives have publicly said Chevy expects to sell over 100,00
Camaros per year with pricing for the V6 model starting in th $20,000 range
