I wouldn't be surprised if the dealership is simply repeating info that they read on Camaro6. They seem to like the Camaro enthusiast website very much. I'd be more inclined to believe this info if it was supported by Z284ever.

Camaro6 is now going to post an article that ChevyExchange has confirmed information on the reveal. It is the circle of life. :fall:
And yet, GMI is no longer getting credit for any inside news anymore. I have a Corvette enthusiast buddy on my FB friends list that trolls...ahem...a competing GM news site & has been littering my feed with anything from them about the new Z06.

Detroit would make perfect sense - but there isn't even a peep about the Camaro. If not Detroit it would have to be Chicago or New York. I suppose LA is possible, but that would be pretty late considering it's production schedule.

They could be trying to stall as long as possible so it would harm current gen Camaro sales. Just like with the CTS

LA happened a month ago. GM could be doing something symbolic. Since the 6th gen is moving to Alpha, it's going to a new assembly plant. Perhaps they plan to reveal it at the show closest to the new location where they will be built?

Next year's LA show. But like I said, that would be too late for it's production schedule. I'm thinking Detroit is still the front runner, after that Chicago or NY.

If the 37 days (Feb 1st) date seen on the Camaro6 website is correct then it could be revealed at Super Bowl #49 on Feb 1st and appear at the Chicago show a short while later. I believe Chevy has sponsored the post game show at recent Super Bowls and could even give one to the game MVP.

A Super Bowl debut makes total sense... much more so than a Chicago debut. The Super Bowl is a worthy stage for a brand-new Camaro.

Maybe Chevy will bring back that bumbling 'technology and stuff' guy from the World Series MVP ceremony.

How about Geneva in early March? If they have International aspirations for the Gen 6 ( a la the Mustang) it would be a great launch pad.

Detroit is the closest "show" to both the old plant and the new plant.

I don't know where (or when) GM plans the official reveal, but I don't think GM's marketing cares where the assembly plant is.

Adding to your theory, what if they did something similar to the mustang and do a simultaneous Global reveal in 4 or 5 different locations around the Globe at a stand alone event. Obviously UK and Australia are out as no RHD models will be built

I sure hope when they pull the sheet off the 6th Gen Camaro for the official reveal it shocks the *&%$ outta me, cuz the more I see of these speculative renderings the more I wanna say, "No, just plain NO!".
Color me nervous as hell that the Gen 6 Camaro is gonna pull a current gen Mustang stunt, and evolve into a softened-up, pie-faced version of it's former more aggressive looking self that looks like it belongs on a Hyundai or Kia lot... :eek:
And that's my $0.02, and you don't have to agree. ;)

The car should be already out and in (or headed to) showrooms by the time the next LA show happens.

Very, very, very seriously doubt Detroit. If it does debut at a car show, it'll be New York or Chicago.

The reason I say "IF" is because I get a feeling Camaro's debut will be independent of the car show schedule.

WE might see it first in the flesh at a car show, but I still feel pretty certain that the next Camaro will have an "off site" unveiling.

I honestly feel that if they go evolutionary with the design then the 6th generation might once more be the death of the Camaro....
Strange thing is the current car, excluding the interior, looks better than the new Mustang to me. Performance wise it is more than competitive so I have to disagree. I think it will stay pretty much the same with more refinement and a bit smaller over all. Also I think it will kick the Mustang in it's teeth on a track and will still come out top dog.

I agree and I know for a fact that the Camaro 6 will be getting its own presser. The C7 online reveal was just too succesful as it got people talking about the product which created a larger demand on the autorags/sites to keep it trending as that is what the people wanted. I have seen the C7 on every mag (Car and Drivel x2)(Road and Smack x2)(Motortrash X4)(Automo-bile) People really made a stink about C7 after that reveal both + and - which is a nice juicy steak to someone on a page hit compensation plan.
