Camaro Wheel Comparison Equinox

Last week after I WRONGed the Camaro's wheel, I seem to recall a lot of people commenting to the gist of "Chevy can't win. If GM had put the boring wheel from the Vette in the Camaro, you guys would have complained about that too!"

Camaro Steering WheelThat's probably true, but as I commented at one point, "There is a middle ground to be found. It's not like you can't design an interesting steering wheel that's also comfortable."

Turns out, I was right. Behold, the steering wheel in the new 2010 Chevy Equinox. It's a nice size, the spokes at 3 and 9 are contoured for human hands, ditto the grips at 2 and 10, its buttons are easy to reach and I think it looks pretty nice. Oh, and you can grip it at 6 o'clock for whatever weenie said they like driving like that.

This is the wheel that should be in the Camaro.
