With the cat out of the bag, the embargo-conformists are no longer keeping the Camaro details quiet. Since TTAC's official policy on embargoes is "No thank you," GM decided not to include us on this one. Now that they are out though, we're happy to oblige. The base Camaro LS V6 is a steel wheel express, but it'll also be the cheapest point of entry, and features the same 300 horsepower direct injection V6 in the Cadillac CTS/STS. For comparison, Ford's V6 makes 210 horses – their upmarket V8 is still only 300 horses. For the Camaro, the uprated V6 car is an LT trim level, and gives huge alloy wheels and more toys inside. The transmission options for the V6, you'll all be happy to hear, are either a six speed automatic or a six speed manual transmission. Clearing up some earlier confusion, the sole V8 version of the Camaro thus far is the SS. With the stick, you get 425 horses, and 400 with the automatic. The block is a version of the 6.2 liter V8 from the Corvette – though dubbed L99 when paired with the automatic in this case. And all automatic transmissions – V6 or V8 – will offer rev-matching downshifts and paddle shifting. What it really means that this should be a stonking good deal if it's anywhere south of $40,000. To bring you to a halt, you get big ol' Brembo brakes, big wheels, and all other manner of kit.

    Today's the day! Even though the leaks were leaky, I'm still excited over the reveal at 4 PM.

    "I guess if they can’t do up-to-date, they have to keep working on out-of-date." What some call "out of date" others call "heritage," something that our American brands have in spades and need to take advantage of. Also, a DOHC Direct Injection 3.6L plus 6 speed tranny is not up to date? You must be from the future.

    Ford and Dodge did a great job with the Mustang and Challenger. This car, my friends, is one ugly POS.

    serpico, I think the opposite. Chevy hit a home run here. I thought the 2006 concept was ugly, but I warmed to the design. The Transformers movie may have had a hand in that 180...
