Click above for high-res gallery of 2010 Chevy Camaro live!

UPDATE: Live video from the unveiling added after the jump!
UPDATE 2: Another video added after the jump, along with 33 more images.
UPDATE 3: One more video added from the West Coast reveal.

GM design chief Ed Welburn and Chevy General Manager Ed Peper just gave the media our first up close and in person look at the new 2010 Chevy Camaro coupe. The reveal was done in the mechanical prep shop that GM design uses for the final prep on all its concept cars. Peper announced that Job 1 for the new Camaro will be coming on Feb. 16 of next year, and although no official pricing is available yet it will be priced aggressively says GM brass. That aggression goes right along with the new looks and powertrain choices for this new coupe, as well. Chevrolet will offer the Camaro in 3 trim levels, the V6-powered LS and LT and the V8-powered SS. The V6 is a direct injected 300-hp 3.6L unit while the 422-hp V8 displaces 6.2L. Both engines will be available with either manual or automatic transmissions, all with 6 speeds. An RS package will be available as an add-on to to the LT and SS models. GM designers have stayed remarkably faithful to the concept design, although they have made some tweaks mainly to the roofline. The car really looks handsome in person with its short front overhang and big wheels. They're wheeling the car outside so we're in pursuit to get more pictures in the sunlight and we'll have our own video the reveal up soon, as well. Stay tuned and check out the gallery of live shots we assembled so far below or visit this post for all the official specs and images.

      Oh, so that is what it looks like. (sarcasm).
      • 6 Years Ago
      wow! and it's just as ugly as they were when the canceled those useless beasts last time...

      What's the deal with all the ugly retro muscle coming out of Detroit now?!?!
      • 6 Years Ago
      From a Mustang guy to GM! VERY nice work! Welcome back to the Pony car wars! It's been a long time ol'e friend!
        • 6 Years Ago
        Oh So... Your saying you prefer the Camaro over the Mustang well good for you... Quality is the Key here.



        P.s. im not a GM Fanboy i just pick the best and go with it
        the only Automaker i Hate is ford.. Because Every Ford Mustang i've had from 98-06 have had some kind of problem. Something always broke. in September 06 i Said Forget this crap and went with something else i Bought a 02 Camaro SS 35th Anniversary. 320hp. and the next year i bought a 08 Corvette Z06. they have been runing well ever since. and thats why i Hate Ford

        @Randy
        That's my sentiment too. I'm a Mustang fan, but I found it was more fun when there was strong competition, which Camaro has always provided.
        This is a very competent competitor with many pluses over the current Mustang, so Ford will have to take it very seriously as it finishes off plans for the 2010 Mustang.
        It's probably good enough in 09 for Camaro (but not Challenger) to have one of those rare years when they beat Mustang in sales as Mustang fans wait for the 2010 model. But GM will have to hustle as Mustang has never been satisfied with second place and has a much larger fan base.
        Can't wait to see Camaro and Challenger join the Koni Challenge.

        Nobody was bashing anyone! And for the record I've owned over 5 Fords and the only one I had a problem with was the one that I broke by accident.

        You picking "the best" which is not the best (by way of fact) is kinda silly. It's like jumping on a Red Sox band wagon. You show no dedication! Only opportunistic fandom. Why not just love all cool cars and not pick sides because your grand daddy told you to! Ya know?

      Awesome looking car. Maybe even better than the Challenger. The interior is growing on me too. Does anyone know what happened to the turbo 4 cyl idea? Rumor had it that GM could easily get 300 hp from that turbo 4.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Love it, except the steering wheel seems weird (the central turning point doesn't seem to be in the middle).

      The interior look is growing on me - still prefer the simplistic look of the Challenger - but it's a neat design.

      V6 Torque numbers are a little worrying, but still better than the Challengers with less weight.

      The V6/Manual-sans toys/options would be my prefered ride. Simple, clean, fun.
      • 6 Years Ago
      that dash is one of the ugliest i've seen.
      • 6 Years Ago
      BOOOOOO! no Burning rubber at unveiling! Hey GM, if your going to talk about how the past models inspired this car, at least give us some tire-smoking video/pictures. so that this car can fulfill all of its smoking legacy.

      is it out already? this is sooo boring
      • 6 Years Ago
      A brother lead the design team that made this car... and the Enclave... sweet...
      • 6 Years Ago
      It looks nice, but it just reveals the depths to which the American auto industry has sunk: They can't come up with anything really groundbreaking that people really want, so..they kill a model, resurrect it a few years later, and make a big hoopla out of it.

      They're running on fumes.
        • 6 Years Ago
        He has a point, though.

        Originality seems to be out the window.

        But that is not only the auto industry.

        How many mainstream movies in the last few years have had completely original premises? That weren't a comic, tv show, book, prequel, sequel, or trilogy?

        Creativity seems to have left the mainstream.

        There seems to be very little, or maybe truly nothing new under the sun, and fewer widespread mediums seem to be trying.

        Re-cycling 40 year old designs is far from original, from any of the big 3.

        All of the big 3 used to have more than one model. Mustang had the Cougar, then the Capri; also the Thunderbird and Cougar, and Lincoln Mark 8;

        Camaro had the Firebird, as opposed to the Monte/Regal/GP, and Cutlass.

        Charger, Challenger, GTX, Barracuda, Road Runner, Duster, Superbird, Daytona and even Laser, Conquest, and Stealth.

        There used to be options.

        Now it is only two ton Mustangs, Challengers, and Camaros.

        IF you don't like it, tough luck.

        And people wonder why the US automakers are struggling.

      Damn, that is a big car. I knew it would be, but compared to the old Vette in the background, and next to the guys presenting... that is a BIG car.

      and, like the G8, weighs like a big car.

      It is nice, but are there any RWD sporty cars between the Solstice Targa GXP and the Camaro, in terms of size and weight?

      2900lbs to 3900lbs.... what about a modern looking RWD 2+2 3-door fastback at about 3400lbs?

      Even the G37 pushes north of 3600lbs, as do most well-equipped Mustangs, which are physically big, too.

      Good for GM fans, the Camaro is back.

      for the rest of us, can we get a modern design, with a modest curb-weight, please? Pontiac, Mercury, Chrysler, whatever? Even the imports... Hyundai Genesis coupe might be the only thing close.

      The one question GM still hasn't an answer to is price.

      I want to know the price for the base V-6 with automatic. The Challenger's cost is around $22K. Is there any way Chevy can stay near that? I can't afford more than $23K for a car.
