Since our previous New Car Tracker update, Ford and General Motors have announced release dates for many products, up to the 2011 model year. Lengthy specs are now available on the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro, and the 2010 Ford Mustang has an official release date. Both will hit the streets in early 2009 to resume the pony car rivalry that’s been on hiatus since 2002. If we've left off a car you're interested in, please let us know in the comments. As always, we remind our readers that we don't list models that are rumored; we only list confirmed vehicles.
