Click above for a hi-res gallery of the 2010 Chevy Camaro

CarTribe has procured a few shots and the initial details of the production Chevrolet Camaro ahead of its official unveiling this Monday. According to their report, the Camaro will come in LS, LT and SS trim, equipped with either a six-speed manual gearbox or a six-speed automatic. Of course, that doesn't account for the very-obviously-marked RS car that is shown in the official photos, so who knows what the whole story is.

Engine choices include either a 296 hp, 3.6-liter V6 or a 416 hp 6.2-liter V8 which will feature cylinder deactivation to boost fuel economy. Underneath the retro sheetmetal is a full independent suspension and StabiliTrak traction control system. Four-pot Brembo brakes are mounted up front on the SS variant, and the 3,700-pound coupe will reportedly have a weight balance of 52/48, front/rear. The neuvo-retro theme is carried inside with a gauge cluster inspired by the 1969 model, along with leather seats and blue LED lighting.

We'll have more specs and images as information becomes available.

      To continue with over-all opinion of this car and the Challenger. THEY ARE BOTH TOO BIG! (Especially the Challenger) they dwarf their older siblings. I'm positive they are difficult to see out of with their low roof lines. I have owned a 1970 Challenger R/T and you really couldn't see over the buldged hood, but out the sides and back it was okay.

      I'm a Mustang man, but personally, I'm diggin this ride. I was scared they were going to water it down...but this looks REALLY nice and true to the concept. I like the interior. Put some armor all on it and it might just look like pleather.

      Camaro's gonna win, no doubt about that, but that's not gonna help the sales.

      Do you think Chevy will be able to sell Camaro V6 for under $20,000 like Ford is able to sell Mustangs?
      And people will still go with Mustang V8 instead of Camaro V6, even if difference is only 4 hp.

      Maybe it's just me, but it seems to me that people are nowhere near as existing about '10 Camaro as they were when '05 Mustang was introduced.

      I am not against the retro thing, but saying if you do not like the interior it is not for you is basically saying this car is only for die hard fans. I like this car, I have no big problem with the interior itself, it is just those guages that are pointless (as they are not easily seeable). How is that any different than some ricer putting a huge tach in their car? And saying you don't need to see the oil pressure on a modern car does not make sense. These cars (no car) are not bullet roof, things will more than likely go wrong, especially if you are driving it hard.

      I am not hating on this car, I really like it, but the guages down there are just kind of in a bad location, for retro interior or not.

      Ugly inside out!

      Not a fan of that interior at all.

      a fact is a fact.
      retro design is one thing.
      terrible ergonomics is other.
      good example is look at the minis inside, retro AND ergo in perfect sinmetry.
      very beautiful outside but a terrible mess inside.

      I love it, inside and out, and I don't know what you people are saying about the interior, it looks good and functional. No, it doesn't look excessively expensive, but it isn't. It's an affordable car, it's going to have an affordable interior. The best we can hope for it is looks stylish and functional, and this does.

      thumbs up.

      Anyone else notice that this might be a European market car??? The speedo looks like it says km/h (although that doesn't really make sense with where the numbers are positioned on the dial). The steering wheel controls are similar to those found in Opels rather than what is traditional for the Chevy wheel. It also might explain what looks to be an RS badge. Maybe they are using that overseas???

      I actually think its kind of a cool interior, i guess i just like the radical style. Someone posted "cheap Pontiac plastic" or something like that...have you ever actually touched the materials used in the Camaro?
      • 7 Years Ago
      Sorry, that dash is fugly.....

      I am amazed how people say this car is so much better than a stang or Chally, when no one has even driven this car yet. Let's at least wait for the test drives...alot can change in a year...the Camaro is already VERY late to the game, so they better have their head on straight.......

        "It's better than a Challenger if for no other reason than no one will call it a "Chally"."

        I don't know, I kind of like " Chally " better than " 'Maro ".

        I'm too lazy to type out the name, and since I can't refer to it as an "E-body" like the original...

        Honestly there is enough room for everyone to play. I really don't consider the Camaro "retro" either...it's pretty darned aggressive styling for a retro vehicle.

      Good lord how does that V6 have as much power as my V8 stang!
        • 7 Years Ago
        The wonders of DI.
        • 7 Years Ago
        Just don't read up on how much power a Nissan/Infiniti 3.7 motor produces, or you'll have a stroke...

        (330hp, in case you're wondering...)
        • 7 Years Ago
        Don't worry. Your V-8 Stang will be able to completely tear this thing apart.

        3700lbs (if that's the base weight) vs. 3500lbs.

        Also, new-er engine vs. older.
