I dont know what to think of this car, some pics make it look good, others make it look ugly... I also think its way to high up and the supercharged spoiler isnt wide enough.. Has an ok 140 hp stock, what you guys think of this new chevy? :smoke:
i think the new cobalt is okay, but it will never replace the chevy camaro,
im disapointed how chevy designed the cobalt, (the looks) when i get my
next car im deffenitly going ford...
Oh really? A supercharged spoiler? Now I know it must be cool.
It's not supposed to. A 4cyl trying to replace a V8 muscle car? Jeez.
Not all camaros are V8's there are v4 and v6 models also.
Besides, the way i see it is that chevy stopped making the Camaro, so that they can produce a car to take the place of the camaro.
I am not sure where I saw this on a forum, but I saw a topic with many sources about a problem with the lack of Camaro production being fixed for the 2007 cars, which would mean we may be seeing a new Camaro in late 2006, we can hope can't we? I'll try and find where I saw this also.
its actually replacing the cavalier.
:banghead: :banghead: :banghead:
There exist NO V4 Camaros. Get it through your head. The Cobalt is like a Civic or Integra. FWD, 4 cyl, slow pos. Not RWD, or V8.
What? They stopped making it so they could make a replacement? Great idea...
Pick up a repair manuel, for the years 1982-1992, There is a V4 option for the camaro...
Pick up a dictionary. Learn how to spell "manual".
V4? dont u mean I-4, a V4 would not be very efficient at all..
There is no such thing as a V4, there's a horizontal opposed 4 and an inline 4, even a slant 4. but no V4's
Honestly, tell me, when have you ever seen a 4 cylinder camaro??? and since you know they stopped making the camaro to make the cobalt (Yeah right) are they gonna just drop the whole cavalier line???
I figured there never was a 4 cylinder (much less a V4) Camaro, but this idiot claims he has a manual or something. Jeez.
I do have a manual, use it everytime i need to fix something, unless the
manual is not clear i dont ask questions here. If you want me to prove it
to ya, then i will
So this manual, you say, has a 4 cylinder setup for a camaro, tell me does that mean that you have a 4 cylinder camaro, because if you ask me i dont think it could be considered a camaro if its only 4 cylinders
No i do not have a 4 cylinder camaro.. mines a v6 (soon to be a V8), Now,
ill scan the manuals cover and the page's that show that the camaro has a 4
cylinder model. by the end of the day
Here is the manual cover
and here is the page with proof, of a 4 cylinder option for the camaro
I guess you're right about the 4 cylinder part. Not the V4 part.
Wow. What a pos.
New article in Motortrend says the Cobalt SS did 0-60 in 6 sec and 14.5 in
the 1/4 mile.
Check link. http://www.cobaltss.net/forums/showthread.php?t=827
OMG!!! these guys kill me. one had it right... Its not replacing anything.
its to compete with the imports(integ,civic)
;yes camaro is coming back....
The gobalt is a desent enought vehicle. it does look good. but i like the new Scion TX by toyota better. :smoke:
It's replacing the Cavalier
About the 4 cylinder Camaro, you're partly wrong. There was an Inline 4
offered from 1982 to 1986. This info was taken from this book i have that
lists all American cars and specs since 1930. There was no 4 cylinder for
the years 1987-1992, just a V6 and V8.
Just thought I'd pitch in...
The Cobalt is kinda lacking in style imo. However the SS supercharged is a good attempt to compete with the Dodge Neon SRT-4, but I think it'll need a little more oomph to outrun it.
I do like the look but it does look a little Handa to me :2cents:
I don't think the Cobalt is trying to compete with the SRT-4.
The Camaro is simply taking a break, being redone, w/e you want to call it
and this is the first time i have posted pictures i think i did it right
and if i did and you can see the pictures of the future Camaro you will
have to agree this puts to shame the redone mustang!!! A Camaro could never
be replaced by a 4banger.
As far as I am concerned this is the BEST remake of a car ever!!!
They only made the cobalt to compete agaist pewny little rice burners like civics, integras etc.
The new Camaro kinda reminds me of a corvette in that first picture.
And your right, it does look better than a mustang. But then again camaros always have looked better than mustangs.
So they made a supercharged 4cylinder with 205 horsepower and 200 torque that runs mid 14's in order to compete with civics(I assume you mean the current model) that have 127 hp and 114 torque and runs 16's, and integras which aren't even in production anymore in the U.S.
Do me a favor and tell me why a car company would aim for their competition to be a car no longer in production, thats like saying the subaru legacy is trying to compete with the 55 bel air.
What you said is an ignorant statement from the brain of an ignorant person.
The Cobalt is and isn't replacing the Cavalier. What's happening is,
Chevrolet is revamping their entire compact line-up, which previously
consisted of one car (the Cavalier). Production on the Cavalier stopped in
October, with the surplus currently on lots. Instead now, Chevy is offering
a bit more selection in the sub $20 000 range, with the Aveo being an entry
level car for students and the like and the Cobalt offering more
performance and luxury. While the Cobalt is the closest car to the Cavalier
currently in production, it isn't really a direct replacement.
And yeah, the Cobalt is designed to try to gain a bigger share of the tuner market from the imports. The problem is, brand loyalty plays a big role in the automotive market and these entry level tuner cars often end up being the first car young people buy. A kid who buys a Honda now is more likely to buy another Honda when it comes time to replace it. So Chevy is trying to get young buyers hooked on the bow tie brand instead, with the intent of keeping em buying these cars. The SRT-4 is in the same vein from Dodge and I expect Ford will come out with their own version before too much longer (Taurus SVT, maybe?).
I think the supercharged cobalt is a pretty nifty and quick little car and looks a helluva lot better than the Cavalier so I would take one. :laughing:
i like my cobalt its a quick car and the interior is a step up from that of
the srt-4.. not as quick as one though
and so far the car is too new for the aftermarket parts, but hopefully they will be as backed as the srt is by the aftermarket companies.
heres a few pics
^ Good response. Imo that looks great. I think the Cobalt SS is a great car.
I think it looks alright. I dont really see the point in making it though. Its SS counterpart isnt even close to being able to contend with the Neon SRT-4.
Rumor is that AEM is working on a V2 intake for it, and Greddy is working on an exhaust system. But Im not sure if thats true or not.
i can get a smaller pulley for my supercharger giving me more boost... but it's too new and im wathing to see what happens to other cars... not that i don't trust it but i don't want to mess with my warrenty so soon
some random pics i found on my computer of my ride... :thumbs: comments?
I'm actually impressed with the cobalt. Any production 4cyl that produces
200/200 is alright with me. And believe me the after market for it will be
just as big as the SRT-4.
Some of the Grand Prix 3800 vendors are already working on it:wink2:
The SS is great looking and performing car IMO. Wing is nice, ground fx are good, wheels are amazing, and performance is good. 205 horsepower 200 torque for the SS, for around 21 or 22 thousand dollars im not sure
Yeah I'm pretty sure with around 500-1000$ in my car I'd dust that thing, if not stock. :laughing:
You got a 5.0....that car has a 2.0 if im not mistaken...4cyl vs. 8cyl....only way he can beat you is if he ups the power, and gets some weight off.
It's ok, I'll rape you too! And my E-penis is 3 feet long:roll:
I was just saying seeing as how my car is 18 years old as well as being only 2800$, mmk E-tard?
There is such a thing. ;)
there was also a post where V4's and other stuff were being talked about a nice bit
yes we cleared that up, notice the date when I posted that...I have learned a HELL of a lot more about cars since then :thumbs:
I like the cobalt and im porbably going to trade my 2002 cavy in for one. its a hot little car and good on gas with a touch of performance. Great grocery getter and daily driver.
its okay i wouldn't loose any sleep over it. im more concerned with DD
ability. but its nice to have the power there when you need it.
also GM stage kits coming out soon, keep my warranty and get some more ponies out of my supercharger. :mrgreen:
:stupid:...what the fuque are you on
he said chevy=crap out of nowhere
lots of people will disagree with that
I think he was agreeing with you lol
oh yeah crap,
what the fuque am I on?:laughing:
True, as long as your happy, I just figure I'd through that in there, btw what kind of gas mileage do you get?
lol well.... if i drive it "nice" and highway (which is mostly where i drive) around 28-30 MPG .. but the way i usually drive its more like 23-25 mpg range :smoke:
at least i can make it up a hill starting in second gear... :fu: lol
lol i was messing wiht the cam in the last pic
You attemt that often do you? :banghead:
nah, i'd like to not kill the life of my clutch and other drivetrain accesories :thumbs:
So why imply that you CAN do it....surely that's irrelevent?
I think he was just implying since he's force fed (with a supercharger) and not N/A he has the extra torque (over similar size non force fed four bangers) to get up that hill with more ease.
[QUOTE=thunderbird1100]I think he was just implying since he's force fed
(with a supercharger) and not N/A he has the extra torque (over similar
size non force fed four bangers) to get up that hill with more
205 torque still isn't that great....
i've gone from a stop to moving up a hill, starting in 2nd gear. i didn't
mean too... but once i started i was like "oh wait... oops", but kept it in
2nd because it was around a construction vehicle and i didn't want to go
that fast anyway...
it wasn't the steepest of hills... maybe 15-20 degrees or so.
and i've got only 135lb-ft of torque... and i deffinately lack in low-end torque...
i need an ubercharger.
dont we all:laughing:
actually just giving the honda who posted chevy=crap a little tourque joke, but i guess i suck at doing that subtly. http://www.stlsr.com/forums/images/smilies/doh.gif
For this class it's great. Remember it's in an under 3000lb sport compact.
okay last pics i promise,.. these ones are not done by me as you can tell
from the first sets i am not a photographer, but i did meet up with a guy
on a local forum and heres a little sample... :wink2:
A very sexy car. I had the opportunity to test drive one, and I loved it. Definitely on my "Car to buy after college" list. :mrgreen:
thanks. yeah its not a bad car for its price range. i would recommend it.. although with every f/i sport compact car.. try not to buy used unless you know the owner.. becasue you know the previous owner beat on the car.. you can't help it :thumbs:
Cobalt Review (http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/27082/auto_review_the_2006_chevro let_cobalt.html)
That article about sums it up, although I am interested to see how far some Cobalt SS's will go as far as power on the stock motor, I don't know much about it but would assume it can't handle much more than the power a Stock 05' Mustang Gt has.
There was never a 4 cylinder Camaro, and certainly not a V4. Maybe you're thinking of the Fox Body Mustangs, not F-body Camaros.
Looks like another attempt at advertising...someone wants us to read their
What are you referring to?
Once again, Boobmba opens his mouth and inserts his foot. Did you forget about the 2.5 Iron Duke four cylinder installed in the early ('82-'85?) third generation F-bodies, or did you just shoot off your ignorant pie hole again without even knowing about them?
DAMN IT, you beat me to it
