Chevy gives the 2019 Camaro a new face and new options

Share

The biggest news with the 2019 Chevrolet Camaro is the exterior refresh, with significant changes across the front and rear end of the 6th gen auto.

Here's an even closer look at the nose of the 2019 Camaro SS. The SS now gets a functional heat exchanger in its hood, and the optional "Flow tie" logo finally makes an appearance on this generation Camaro. The fascia on the SS model is unique with special headlights, a gloss-black grille, a vented hood to aid cooling and aero performance, as well as special air curtains around the corners to further help improve downforce while minimizing drag. The different elements - from the grille and hood, to the fascia vents - were created to enhance air flow and cooling while minimizing drag. Inside, all models benefit from Chevrolet's latest infotainment system, as well as new colour and trim options.

Variants powered by the 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder or 3.6-litre V6 have a taller upper grille, and a restyled and more complex front fascia.

The new rear fascias has been updated for all models too, with specific diffusers on RS and SS when equipped with Dual Mode Exhaust. Yet what is most apparent from the outset is that the 2019 Camaro looks different from every angle. There is an aggressive diffuser, quad exhausts setup and a new set of 20-inch wheels to add to the sporty appeal of the muscle vehicle.

Check out the new, more sculpted Chevrolet LED taillamps - with red lenses on LS and LT, and dark-tinted neutral-density lenses on the RS, SS, and ZL1.

The braking duties are carried out by massive Brembo brakes with low-metallic performance pads.

Under the skin, the V8 Camaro can now be ordered with a 10-speed automatic in place of the current model's eight-speeder. No changes are mentioned for the engine, which means the 6.2-litre naturally aspirated "LT1" V8 producing 339kW continues as is.

Other performance enhancements include engine, transmission and differential coolers, as well as launch control and a no-lift shift function. A special Drive Mode Selector includes Sport, Track, and Competition modes with performance readouts and launch control. The rearview mirror is a full display, beaming video from the rear of the auto on the 2SS trim. The interior, however, gets mild updates, with new ambient lighting and a rear camera mirror on the higher trims like the 2SS and the ZL1.

Chevrolet Camaro is an iconic American sports vehicle which began its journey in 1967. This option includes a heads-up display, heated steering wheel, and color driver information display. But, unlike what we often see with a mid-cycle refresh, there are plenty of functional changes, as well.
