And that is why I have offered here the speculation that Camaro may too move away from retro for exactly the same reasons Mustang will, to maximise appeal and sales potential world-wide.
GM is making a big push with the Chevrolet Brand in many world markets. While some here may think Corvette is the natural vehicle to add glamour to that push, a sensible market analysis says no. A modern, light, spritely and turbocharged I4 Camaro is the far better halo vehicle for the market segment GM is going after with their world-wide Chevrolet Brand push. Corvette is too expensive, too large and too powerful to be of any real halo benefit to people buying subcompact Chevy's in Asia and Europe. And sales of Corvette will be too low to have a Corvette on every showroom floor. But a new smaller sleek turbo 4 cylinder Camaro is exactly what would get their attention... And be right their in the showroom with the Cruze and smaller vehicles on sale.
It just makes so much sense. Unfortunately many on this site only see everything through the prism if "U S A; U S A". The rest of the world is a little bit of a different place.... and GM is and will have to cater to that other place more and more as those external markets become so much more important to their bottom line.
If not with the Gen 6, then certainly by Gen 7 expect a truly ’International’ Camaro. So it's only a matter of time until something more like below is what Camaro becomes...
