Anyone heard this info yet?

A stripped version of the Camaro (V6) will start around $25K. I would hope GM isn't stupid enough to have a $5K leap between G8 & Camaro with the same engines.

Wait and see. Pricring will be announced before December. $25,999 for a base V8.

26k for a V8 which will probably get GG tax? Not saying you are wrong, but do you have any facts to support this or is it just personal speculation??? If so please share with the rest of us.

That is believable, but emphasis on the BASE. That is no options. "Well equipped will probably put you near 30."

Some perspective here, a 2002 Camaro SS new was nearly $28K, I know, I owned one. That is 8 MYs ago, plus inflation. It was a basically low tech platform, which is not the case with the new version. Don't know what your definition of "well equipped" is, (don't think Bill Clinton is hiding in the weeds on this!) but you might see a base V6 "well equipped" for under $30K, but no way under the sun will you see a "well equipped" Z28/SS for under/around or near $30K! Especially since they just raised the price of a "well equipped" G8 GT to just under $35K! IMHO that is!

Yes but the SS is now the base version of the V8. The Z28 is gone. GM has already announced the SS will compare in price and equipment to the Rustangs.

My BASE 99Z28 was $18k The SS was top of the line 8 years ago. So now just reverse it.

Pssssst! Yeah right! I'll stick with what I've said and be hugely surprised if its less! And I don't care which way you play the badging, SS/Z28 or Z28/SS they both are highend V8s and will have the price to prove it!

Not yet we aren't! Since none are in showrooms yet, its hard to say what that window sticker will have on it! As far as a "decently" equipped SS under $32K, again, I'll wait for that window sticker before I cry Uncle! And the V6 is the "value" price grabber for the masses. You more than likely wont find a big following in the enthusiast crowd!

I just got an 09 g8 Gt, from an Infiniti g35 coupe, and before that a Bimmer. You all know the G8 rips for 30K, but sucks down the gas, and who know where Pontiac will be in a few years?? That being said the GXP is going to be a tough sell, and im sure a gas guzzler, and how much more do you need than the gt, unless your headed to the track. I know there are people that want one (Including me) but as far as being practical-timing could not be worse for GM. I work for a finance co. that finances a good amount of equipment for GM, we have cut them off, period, so have most all of there other funding sources. Will see...

yeah, it's not likely to start at 25K. That's Mustang turf.

Just thought you'd like to know they just bumped the prices on Commodore SSV by $10KAUS in the last few days. Also regular SV6 is now available with 18 wheels and leather for $29K AUS drive away price, that also a $10k bump.

Is this like a semi-truck? Tractor and trailer = 18 wheels? That would be one hell of an AWD setup!

I've been seeing GXP's with $40K - $42K on the window stickers. Have a dealership locally that has about 6 or so on the lot right now in different colors. With the cash back, etc. being offered you can acquire one for around $36K if you work it right. Would have loved to get one, but think my recent G8 GT purchase was a much better deal for the $, plus reg. unleaded and no gas guzzler tax.

BTW, most probably already know but here is what the various Camaro models are priced at: Base V6 $23,040, Base SS, $31,040 with a fully optioned SS2 going for well over $40K. I'm still happy I bought by G8 GT.

[looks like the link doesn't work sorry]
