A few updates on the new Camaro

This just in from Scott Settlemire as posted on http://5thgencamaro.blogspot.com/

Yes -- the Camaro will have a key (versus pushbutton start)

Yes -- it will be a model year 2010 -- but we have not moved the 'start-up' date. We'll start building Camaros in the 4th quarter of 2008 -- and they'll be in dealerships in the first quarter of 2009

Yes -- the new Camaro will have a B-pillar. BUT - it isn't noticable from the outside. Think of a first gen with the rear window in the up position. The rear window will cover the B-pillar and there will be a weatherstrip attached. The B-pillar is necessary for several reasons -- the most important being: reduction of mass and structural rigidity


That is all

Well, this is good news, but I still want to see details of it's execution before I once again dedicate myself to buying one! here's hoping it does NOT look like a Mustang's B-pillar!

Nothing has been released yet, but I expect the base V6 to be in line with the V6 Mustang and things comprable from there
