Right now, my big problem with GM is they appear to be selling the Canadian built Camaro to US customers for significantly less than they are selling it here in Canada.

The MSRP for a 2011 Camaro 2SS Convertible bought in Canada is $47,835, in the US it's $39,650. While I haven't carefully checked the equipment sheets to confirm that the offered cars are exactly the same, from the marketing lit. they do seem to be similarly equipped. I certainly don't see any obvious reasons to justify the $8000.00 price difference. And I refuse to believe that it has anything to do with the exchange rate, the current exchange rate is 1 Canadian dollar = 1.0175 U.S. dollars.

So why is GM charging us more for a car that we build? Likely for the same reason they didn't debut the new Camaro here; because they feel they can easily get away with it.

The 2011 Toronto Auto Show was big and interesting. Here is a video of the displays in the MTCC South Building
