2019 Camaro Facelift

Today, Chevrolet unveiled a new look for the 2019 Camaro, and the SS looks exactly like Bumblebee from Transformers: The Last Knight. We'll let you be the judge of whether or not that's a good thing, but what is inarguably cool is a new Turbo 1LE model that brings track performance to the entry-level Camaro. The Camaro SS also gets a new optional 10-speed automatic transmission with launch control and line lock standard.

The Turbo 1LE is the most interesting bit of news here, even if its 275-hp 2.0-liter four-cylinder remains unchanged. It gets a suspension package similar to that of the excellent Camaro V6 1LE, Brembo Brakes, summer performance tires, and a new Track mode. The only transmission option is a six-speed manual, and Chevy says the Turbo 1LE has a perfect 50-50 front-to-rear weight distribution. Pricing hasn't been announced yet, but considering the V6 1LE starts at around $33,000, the Turbo 1LE should be a track-day bargain.

Not sold on the front end. I am sure it will grow on my. The tail lights are pretty trippy. I want to see them in person and working.

GM doing more and more good things with that 1LE option. Very cool.

The SS front fascia ok I guess. Base model is ugly! Tails look great.

Overall its a solid meh

Knowklew 04-09-2018 10:25 AM

Not sure about the front end. Need to see it in person

greasy 04-09-2018 10:40 AM

Way less aggressive front end, do not like it based on the pics.

YoushallgoFo 04-09-2018 10:51 AM

I think this looks like shit. And the article had to go ahead and associate it with those fuckin transformers movies which makes it even worse.

Not sold on the exterior changes. The old exterior looked great in my opinion. Did they do anything to the interior? That was the biggest flaw of the current gen.

I guess it depends on how much more boost some easy mods will produce.

What the fuck is with these black out bar sections in the grills?

The next GT500 is supposed to have that too.

I dont know if I like the SS front end with the body color fangs or whatever you want to call them below the headlights like the next Silverado will have too.

Guess its another car that will only look good in black to hide all the weird goofy angles going every which way.

Yup. Tails suck

98GrandPrixIraqVet 04-09-2018 11:18 AM

Ohh I forgot the 2018+ Mustangs still look better :ford:


Ryan02Stang 04-09-2018 11:23 AM

Looks disgusting compared to the new Mustangs!

Shibby50 04-09-2018 11:37 AM

The second pic the side profile looks like those old dodge avengers

YoushallgoFo 04-09-2018 11:48 AM

Those grille octagons keep getting bigger every year too.

Mustang wins.

cmntmxr57 04-09-2018 12:12 PM

Wait, let me see if I understand this correctly, and bear with me, I owned a 4th gen too, so I'm not bashing it... Anyway, our LS1 4th gens often got made fun of because of the "catfish" front end.

So I find it funny, "catfish" front end 4th gen owners, calling this ugly... :D

98GrandPrixIraqVet 04-09-2018 12:25 PM

Honestly the new Silverado Sierra and Camaros have a whole lot of :dnc: going on with them.

Only GM that looks good anymore is the Vette.

Yaj Yak 04-09-2018 12:27 PM

where the hell is @Lead Pipe to balance out this ford :nutz: fest in this bitch

Bub 04-09-2018 12:28 PM

I think this thing looks fucking killer

YoushallgoFo 04-09-2018 12:29 PM

The only people that called them catfish were butthurt mustang gt owners that needed something to say about the car.

Both 4th gens look way better than this thing. And you can see out of them too.

Yaj Yak 04-09-2018 12:32 PM

i disagree with all of you saying it looks worse... i think this looks worse for sure

than this.
