In a case of what appears to be semantics, Chevy has revealed that the Camaro will now be a 2010 model, rather than a 2009 model. The semantic part is that the car will go on sale in
spring for 2009, it’s still called the 2010 Camaro. The reason the car wasn’t sold early in 2009 was because Chevy said “it would make sense for the model to run a little longer before switching to a “production 10”.
So we are not sure how the car could have been sold
earlier in 2009 except Chevy started selling it in the winter which wasn’t like the Camaro. We’re also not sure why it matters if they call it 2009 or 2010 — people just want to get their Camaros ready. And we’re not sure what kind of apocalyptic chaos happened between the ’09 and ’10 productions.
Chevy: give us a Camaro. Please. Call it the model car of 5150 or 10,000 BC, we have not specified. To paraphrase Bard, it’s not the model year that will be the death of us, it’s waiting for the car. Just so you know potential buyers, the crossover will go on sale a year later, in the actual year 2010, and will also be called the 2010 model. Together, Chevy expects to move 100,000 units annually of the revived muscle car, if it gets here.
