I got my 2012 lt for 20,300 through my dad(who works at a Chevy dealership)You can get a new 2012 Charger with a 300 hp v-6 and an 8! speed automatic and rwd that gets 31 mpg for about $24,000 right now. This car seems like no improvement. I can't imagine them not having a basic v-6 version that couldn't be had for $25k after deals. You can get a 2012 Impala LS right now for $22,000, I don't see this new car being anywhere near twice that car.
1st couple years of release, I doubt there's going to be many deals on them
I'm guessing an equivalent ls will sell for 5-7k more than what they cost now
Just look at the cost of the Malibu
