Thread: 2009 Camaro with an LS2 will have a $35K MSRP?

  1. #1

    Red face 2009 Camaro with an LS2 will have a $35K MSRP?

    ...so as I have mentioned before I happen to know somebody that works at the main GM plant. He ordered the 09 Camaro...#2 off the production line. Black with red interior, 400hp LS2, and MSRP is $35k! I can't wait to order my next Camaro SS!! I think I am going to wait till they offer employee pricing on it though and take his discount
    From a private f-body message board.....

    I call BS. "Main GM plant"??? And since when the hell can a factory worker special-order a car only a couple weeks after its official build site is even decided?

    im glad to hear it officially will not have an LS2. ive said from day 1 that would be a huge mistake on GMs part. the LS2 puts out decent power by today's standards, but anyone that thought an LS2 in a 2009 model would be impressive would be mistaken.

    LS3 at least then. possibly even LS7 for the SS?

    What's unrealistic about a top of the line model camaro getting the LS2 and costing around $35,000. That's right in line with other rwd, v8 vehicles with similar horsepower.

    it's unrealistic because scott just said it ain't happenin'. you don't know what rwd v8 vehicles with similar horsepower will cost in 2009. if the new camaro ended up costing more than the current gto with the same horsepower numbers, i'd be buying a gto right now. it would be a huge mistake to price it higher without giving it more power. the $35,000 mark would put it out of the price range of too many potential buyers. however, if it costs between $35,000 and $45,000 and has an ls7, i'm buying one. ls3 and under $35,000 seems like a good plan too.

    not true, top of the line mustang makes 500hp. to think that GM would counter this with a lowly LS2 would be a huge mistake on their part.

    He could be right if he is speaking in Canadian funds. Back in 2002 a Z28 stickered for around $32000 Canadian. I have the breakdown on my SS from 2000 and its msrp is around $39000 Canadian.

    Canadians typically get screwed on new vehicle pricing.

    The LS2 will not be in the Camaro, so this is obviously false information.

    I got a buddy who has a dad who has a cousin that has a monkey that was previously owned by a guy that works at a company that supplies valve stem caps to GM.

    He just ordered a Blue Devil with his supplier discount pricing for 15 grand. Apparently there's a huge markup on those.

    Fbodfather Is a person that works for GM and is seen at most all of the F-body gatherings and events nationwide. He is the guy that has been saying that Camaro would be back from day 1 of the "vacation".

    He's always at the Gatherings in Atlanta and is guest speaker there at the awards banquet.

    If you want the high power and the one that has all of the bells and whistles then you sure are going to be talking $40K for sure.

    Camaro

    I went to my GM dealer today. I have been doing business with this same place for 40 years. I talked to the owner about the GTO / Camaro. He told me NO 2008 Camaro's will be released this fall and NO ONE is taking orders on any. He did say I can put my name on a list and when they do start taking orders he will contact me. I gave him my name and info [ which they already have ]

    The LS3 is based off the L92 truck motor that debuted in the 2006 Cadillac Escalade and Chevrolet Tahoe. The LS3's cylinder heads are very similar to the 7.0L LS7 heads found on the 505 horsepower Z06 Corvette, except they are designed for smaller cylinder bores. In addition to the heads, the LS3 included a cam phaser, which allows variable valve timing to maximize horsepower while not sacrificing low end torque or economy.
    430hp/424ft-lbs

    Is this the non-supercharged version of the motor going into the ZR1?

    "IF" a 427ci LSX is offered then I would expect it to run atleast 42k-45k. And it would be worth every penny.
