I've noticed a lot of people saying that they will purchase the SS at a "good price" due to the lack of options.

So what would that price be for you?

For me I'd probably consider it if the car could be had out the door for less than 40K. I know, not very likely.

A Loaded G8 GXP Msrp was $41,590 back in 2009. The new SS is essentially an updated GXP with, what seems to be, a better quality interior with a lot more electronics. Not to mention the Aussie dollar is eoughly 12 cents stronger than where it was 4 years ago. Although, im not completely sure how the exchange rates would ultimately effect cost.

I'm gonna say closer to 45k? IDK...

I look at the past MSRP of the G8 GXP as well as the tech and content of this car and my calculator is stuck on $40K. The cost of production goes down over the lifespan of vehicle and we're a few years into the SS' lifespan. At $40K I think the SS would still be very profitable and should sell out. I'll stand in line for $40K.

Volume would def help bring prices down, but its tough to say what kind of numbers will be sold here. I've read articles that say anywhere from 5 to 20k so kinda tough to pin point. Essentially GM has no idea what the demand will be. 40k would be sweet.

I've seen those numbers too and comments about not putting all the eggs in the basket like the GTO. The next few months will be interesting. During that time alot can change.

Anyone who pays a dime over what a Camaro SS is actually selling for is crazy.
I'd post what I am willing to pay for the SS, but it would make some of the members here cry.

I paid $39.9 for a brand new C6 in 2006 from Rick Conte. Needless to say, the SS Sedan would have to actually be offered to me at a much lower price for me to even CONSIDER it.
You disagree with me?

Research what the best deal can be made on a Charger.
I paid $33k for my brand new G37x sedan with a sunroof, and it's a much better car than the SS Sedan.

Frankly, I can't see why anyone would but the SS Sedan without ALL WHEEL DRIVE.
If no AWD, why wouldn't you just buy a CTS-V, Corvette, or a Charger ?
If I had to choose, I'd buy the AWD Charger over the SS Sedan, and I do NOT have a high opinion of Chrysler.

CTS-V @ least 20k more expensive than a SS.

Corvette? Seriously? Thats not a natural progression. COMPLETELY different buyers.

Charger? Maybe, but I cannot stand the looks of them and thats simply a deal breaker for me.

You make my head hurt.

Sorry to take this thread a bit off topic but I just had to voice my opinion on the Dodge Charger design. Who ever designed the rear end of the Charger lacks any creativity, such a tasteless design, could the dodge charger tail lights be any uglier?




Getting back on topic...

I'm with everyone else saying the Chevrolet SS price needs to be "priced right". Although it does sets itself apart from other performance sedans, if priced too high people will buy something else.

I think a price around $45 000 - 50 000 will be fair.

I think 38k will make sense and help GM to sell more car, more customer the better! 45k is too much for 5 yrs old motor which make 20 mpg highway!

If you want to match price to SRT-8 or other model with that range price, SS is out of luck.

I am worry if too high price, then this model wont sell well then they will stop make this model!

The higher the better. Anything to keep away the FPFQ threads.

Interesting response so far.

So those of you who said a fair price is 45-50K, are you actually planning to buy the car?

50K is quite the chunk of change, I'm just not seeing how this car is worth that.

This is the same problem that was had when the C6 ZO6 was released.
All these people sitting in the parent's basements counting Monopoly money were saying it was a "fair price".
What a joke.
Unless you have the funds on hand to pay CASH, don't tell me it's a fair price.

I wouldn't pay more that $30k for a SS Sedan.....and that's WITH a manual transmission.
Don't agree?
Fine, you can bend over and grab your ankles when the thing is released.
But, don't cry that you didn't even get lubed up when GM drops a LT1 with a TR6060 a year later.

IF I buy a SS Sedan, I will wait for incentives to bring the price down to a reasonable pricerange.

Would this car avoid the gas guzzler tax?
No, it'll have a gg tax at some level. The G8 Gxp gg was like $1700 iirc and the SS will be fitted with the same ls3 as well without any, with seems to be, tweaks so I would expect the same fuel economy. Roughly 13 city/20 hwy.

I read somewhere $37,535 for a base SS!:confused::eek:
Where did you read that, that's what the Chevy SS price will be? Please provide a source.

After the gas guzzler tax, and all the other fees that get added on I think we're looking at a low to mid $40k sedan here.
