Chevrolet Camaro Prices Paid and Buying Experience

Yikes, its quite a bit more than expected. I had hoped that the base V8 Manual would be around 25k-26k, I guess that was just wishful thinking. At 30k+ it puts it more than I care to spend for a car that sits in the garage most of the year.

    hey, there are worse things than trolling for a v6 camaro - not everyone can have the V8! i'd like to test-drive a V6 stickshift model.

    Here are the latest prices for the 2010 Camaro:

    http://www.edmunds.com/chevrolet/camaro/2010/index.html#search=open.eq..amp.p.eq- - .cvehicledata%23%23-1%23%23-1%7E%7Enf12%7C%7C43686576726f6c6574

    As you can see, the LS (V6) has an MSRP of $22,245. That's pretty darn good for a car with 300 HP. In fact, it has almost the same HP as the 2000 Camaro Z28 had (305), although the V6 generates less torque than the V8. Anyway, I think it's a car with plenty of "bang for the buck".

    I also think that is a good price but will we be able to get one for that and when will they be available?

    Below is the latest Edmund's review of the 2010 Camaro LS with pricing:

    http://www.edmunds.com/new/2010/chevrolet/camaro/101110008/prices.html

    Unfortunately, it doesn't mention when the car will be available for sale nor if or when its price may increase. I suggest calling your local Chevrolet dealer for more info.

    Seems kind of a bargain to me $22250 for 300 hp six and $29k and change for 400+ hp . Just dont understand why it had to be so big and heavy. No break thru engineering. I wish GM luck.
  • The cost is actually somewhat misleading. $22,250 (plus $700 shipping) is $23,000 sounds nice, but that figure is quite misleading. That is the price of an absolutely stripped down model. If you equipped this vehicle like the mustangs I think the 6 cylinder camaro is priced about the same as the 8 cylinder mustang (300 hp +/- each). For the 8 cylinder camaro (400 hp) to have the equipment of a GT mustang I think you would find it to be considerably more expensive that a GT mustang (and you get more horsepower, too). To get a 6 cyl camaro that you may "want to take home" would cost about the same as a GT mustang and maybe a little more.
  • Hi There,

    Just wanted to let everybody know, that I was able to find a deal for a new 2010 2SS Camaro at $1200 under Factory Invoice... I was offered that by my local dealer here in Illinois(I live in Schaumburg 20 miles from Chicago). Two other dealers were at $1000 below Invoice... I'm very happy with my new car and that price paid!

    thanks for that $1k-under-invoice for SS news, illinois guy. very nice to know.

    let's not be misled by the pricing however - personally i just figured out the insidiously misleading pricing of gasoline, the way it always ends in .9 cents.
  • vinnynyvinnyny Posts: 772
    Dan: Do you mean to say $1200 under invoice or were you referring to msrp? I walked into several local dealers with cash in hand and couldn't get them to honor military pricing--forget about invoice!
  • eliaselias Posts: 1,941
    yeah, Vinny, you gotta be right about that. $1k under invoice seems too good to be true given that recently the dealers wouldn't budge from MSRP...
  • eliaselias Posts: 1,941
    also Vinny, which of us is first to be scouring illinois dealerships for our favorite color/stripes/package at $49 over invoice and courtesy-delivery to Boston (#1 original old-schooling the NYers) or NY (#2, newbie town, just getting established) ?
  • Under or over invoice/MSRP does not mean anything.... what matters is OTD because we all pay it.... If a trade is involved the OTD price is moot.
  • vinnynyvinnyny Posts: 772
    I'm scouring the South now. Most Camaros are still sold before they arrive here. I'm guessing that prices will drop quickly up north as the winter progresses.
  • Bought 2lt with Auto, RS Pkg, Sunroof and compact spare....msrp was 31,410.00
    Got out the door price of 29,950.00 No quite Invoice but very close. This car was a gift for my son from his grandmother.... a lot of dealers only wanted to give the 500.00 rebate only discount.....
  • Wow, from msrp of $31,410.00 to $29.95K OUT THE DOOR? :surprise:

    That's great. Where did you buy? :confuse:

    thanks,

    BL in San Fran (home of the import lovers).
  • Hi there, i just built the same car you did and it came out to exactly to MSRP of $31,410 and invoice of $29,893. My question is how did you get it for 29K out of the door, doesn't it include sales tax and all the other fees you are charged.

    Seems like a great deal.
  • This was in the St louis MO Market....I also omitted that this did not include sales tax since it was not charged since we live in IL..we have to pay that separate.
  • i'm looking for the same package/deal in NY..31,400 down to 29,950...nobody is budging from msrp..surprising.. i didn't think $1500 off msrp or paying invoice would still be difficult to find.. i guess i'll be patient
  • Wait until summer, once 315 HP base 2011 Mustang comes out they'll change their tune.
  • We found a new Camaro at a dealer 1 state over from our local dealer. The local wants to charge an additional $650 to have the car delivered. The salesman said the car is not yet at the other dealer. So, I guess I have two questions: Is it possible for dealers to reroute vehicles in transit? And, if not, is an additional trans. charge reasonable, considering they already charge $850?
  • A dealer is trying to add $570 to MSRP....from his email:

    "The window sticker of the vehicle (#LD821) shows $37,635. There is an Environmental Protection Package that is applied to all vehicles that includes paint sealant, interior fabric/leather/carpet protection, and more. The price of that package adds $570 for a total of $38,205. "
  • eliaselias Posts: 1,941
    yes it is a scam.
  • I'll tell you the same thing i told the guy above

    Wait until summer, once 315 HP base 2011 Mustang comes out they'll change their tune. There will be no extra fees and they will have plenty of them on the lot.

  • Vinny,

    It was $1200 below factory Invoice(not MSRP, Invoice!). I don't know why u guys have a such a hard time finding this deal. It was from Jerry Haggerty him self.
    $200 under Invoice and $1000 cash rebate. It should be even easier to get this now, since I see them sit on the dealers lots...

    You should have received a bit more than $200 below invoice before rebate on the SS. Around here local is doing $550 below invoice before rebate on the SS.
  • That's a great deal! I guess I got mine couple months ago, maybe that's why it was "only" $200 back of Invoice... Still, I'm very happy with my deal and the car!
  • vinnynyvinnyny Posts: 772
    Nice work! Prices are still holding close to MSRP here in the South. If there had been reasonable deals six months ago, I would have bought one, but now I'm going to wait for the convertible next year.
  • I just bought a 1SS for about $500 below invoice, before the $1000 Saturn Owner incentive. There are a few dealers online at Camaro forums that offer GM Employee pricing (a few hundred over invoice), and they will ship the car to you. Shipping costs vary based on distance, but it's worth checking into.

    So up in NJ, the "dance" for a 2SS with RS, Sunroof, Auto and Black stripe starts at $38,550 MSRP and ends up with a dealer offer of $38,000, as a friend of the family favor.. Its for my daughter (she's paying for it) who wants Bumble Bee Yellow, which the dealer will have to trade in. Fact, since most of his stock is V6 and stick.

    We have a $1000 Pontiac purchase discount in the family that we can count on through at least March 31, I think I can do better, any input or comments?
