2019 Chevrolet Camaro Gets a Questionable Refresh



Quote:
The 2019 Chevrolet Camaro has made its official debut, and while the muscle carís looks are certainly new, weíre not so convinced they have been improved.

Thatís okay, though, because looks are subjective and Chevy has indeed made some positive changes to its two-door muscle coupe for 2019. The 6.2-liter V8 powered Camaro SS now has the automakerís 10L80E 10-speed automatic transmission, replacing the eight-speed automatic in the 2018 model year car.

The much-loved 1LE package has now also been extended to the 2.0-liter turbocharged Camaro. The Turbo 1LE, as itís being called, features larger front and rear stabilizer bars, stiffer rear bushings, summer only tires, a Brembo brake package, a sueded flat bottom steering wheel and shift knob and available Recaro seats. Thereís also a drive-select mode with Sport, Track and Competition settings. The 2.0-liter engine remains unchanged, producing 275 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque.

I think Chevrolet missed the mark ( again) with this design...

Now we have to still hope they sell enough of them to have any hope for a 7th gen?

Looking for: Original spiral shocks- 3192477(front),3192851(rear)
-An original LOF soft ray windshield
-JIM EDELBROCK CHEVROLET items-Plymouth Michigan (1968-1970)

Itís hard for us 1st Gen enthusiasts to embrace but these are bada** cars that perform incredibly well and the creature comforts are very nice.

I'll agree that I had a problem embracing them back in 2010. At the time, I thought it wasn't 1st Gen-retro enough!

Now after riding in and driving a 2016 that belongs to a son of my friend, I agree they are much faster, handle better and very comfortable to drive. And that's a 6cyl!

That said, I do have a problem with the grille design on the 2019. In comparison to the 2010 and later years, the one shown above does look too generic or non-Camaro. That middle bar should be body color and they should reduce the grille area, it's too overwhelming and doesn't match the subtle side body design anymore.

If I wanted one now, I would definitely look for a 2010 - 2016.

Re: 2019 Chevrolet Camaro Gets a Questionable Refresh

Purchasing my retirement car is getting difficult. If I could build my dream car it would have the front end of the 2010 6 cyl and the tail lights of a 2015 LT. Haven't decided coupe or convert yet. In spite of that 10 speed automatic with launch control I don't see a 2019 in my future

Re: 2019 Chevrolet Camaro Gets a Questionable Refresh

I was hoping that for the 50th anniversary of the 69, they would have incorporated the flattened rear wheel opening to emulate the one year only styling that made the 69 unique. The 1969 model year still remains the only year that incorporates this styling cue, so I guess it's not a bad thing that they didn't do it. I just think it would have been a nice subtle "Old School" migration.

That's the SS version apparently. There's some other pics that show the middle bar matching the paint. Looks better to me that way too.
