Cost for sure hurt GM on that one. Not a mustang fan but they definitely have a better price point.

True. Still surprising

i just think to the average consumer the Camaro is the least daily driver friendly if you look at all aspects. As far as an all around sports car it lacks in no areas.

It sells less because there is no advertising. I didn't even know they made a 6th gen until I read about them on here.

Thats another issue for sure

the advertising campaign is weak and boring. ***** just gay. Dodge has it figured out best

what is rattling on your interior anyway ? I’ve had no issues with anything. And I’ve even removed some deadener in some areas. Even my a8 is smooth as butter at 13k. Hard as hell life with no torque management for at least half. Hit the strip at 600 miles lol

Camaro has probably been the least dd since the 3rdgens in some ways, outward view, rear seat till sn95 cars, low floor height hindered 3/4 gens as a comparison to the same era mustang. However driving position in those cars are second to none imo. You feel like your part of those cars.

I loved 5gens. Didn't own any but drove phils plenty. I drove znix 6gen and think the front section of the car is very comfortable, phil looked a little cramped in the back.

Hopefully this new lower priced lt1 6gen will sell a few more.

As I said when you ignore the other downfalls the average consumer will hate my car is incredible. I just love driving it

i know they made improvements over my 2010 with the 5g but mine had aftermarket springs and sways. I even had poly subframe mounts and it still just felt numb to me or something. My 6g feels like a 4th gen on steroids. Hard to explain

for me it goes 6g, 4g, 5g as an all around car. Opinions vary

Horn/airbag assembly is the biggest culprit. Second biggest is the upper part of the dash, where the speaker covers are. Not near as bad as the airbag though.

The rear seat of it was usable to......although there could have been better for the size of that vehicle also.

Ford on the GT on purpose made it soft since that is what most of its V8 customers want....decent traction. They don't care about handling. The GT350 R can handle if that is what you want from a Mustang but its very expensive.,

I would love to drive Jason's 5th gen ZL1. They looks great too.

I'm sure I can too. I usually run the radio, so I barely notice it.

GM marketing for their performance cars is **** in the US, but they are marketed fairly well over seas.

They are supposed to sell an entry level trim SS (1LT?) for $34,995 IIRC

That'd be a good thing -

Yea but it's not a SS. It is a base 1LT with LT1.

Would love to have one with no badges and cut outs and make a sleeper out of it.
