If you are a Bugaboo-stalker…um…I mean Bugaboo-lover, you may have noticed that many of the Cameleons have been going on sale lately. A Bugaboo on sale?!? Really?!? Yep, that is what we thought and we knew there had to be a reason. This is one of those brands that doesn’t just throw sales out there all willy-nilly.
Well, today the reason has been announced. Bugaboo is debuting the Cameleon3 this September! Our Australian friends from Babyology got the jump on us with announcing it first so I guess that makes us second, right?
This third generation Cameleon will be better, and yes, probably comes with a price increase. The Cameleon3 base will be available in sand, dark grey, dark chocolate and black and you’ll have 8 accent colors to choose from. This new Bug will be available starting in September 2012 and will retail for $1399. We think this is the price for Australia and not for the US. We’ll wait and get the official word from Bugaboo. (UPDATE: We hear that it will retail in US for $979.) Here are the rest of the details (at least as much details as we have so far!):
With the Bugaboo Cameleon3 unfolding has become even faster and easier than before, thanks to its redesigned unlocking system. The multi-terrain stroller’s new flat-fold carrycot with one-hand release makes it easier to travel with and more convenient to store. Furthermore, the underseat bag has been maximised, so there’s some extra storage for you too. And let’s not forget about the quick-release wheels, six-step height adjustable handle bar, intuitive brake system, more durable chassis and padded adjustable harness.
No matter where you go or how you get there, the versatile Bugaboo Cameleon3 adapts to your journey simply and easily. And because it’s suitable for a newborn or toddler, it’s the only stroller you – and your child – will ever need.
So, who has an unlimited stroller budget and is due in September?
