This driver-focused package promises to further enhance the car’s track-day capability.
In an effort to broaden the appeal of this options group, GM is making it available on V6-powered models for the first time ever. In years past, it has been exclusive to eight-cylinder cars.

'But just from the interest we had in the fifth-gen, I’d say each one will probably generate about 1,500 to 2,000 units a year,' solid volume for a relatively niche vehicle.
