REFRESHING OR REVOLTING: 2019 CHEVROLET CAMARO
It’s been less than three years since the sixth-generation Camaro first went on sale, but Chevrolet decided to update the Camaro’s styling for 2019. Designers didn’t mess with the cabin, powertrain, or chassis, so aside from an updated infotainment system, the changes are almost entirely cosmetic. With that in mind, how does the Camaro’s new look compare to the outgoing model?
Up front, you can see some of the most significant changes. Regardless of trim, the bumper and grille have been redesigned, as have the headlights and hood. Lower-trim models now have a much larger upper grille that allegedly channels the first-generation Camaro’s design. On the SS, a blacked-out bar helps it stand out from the rest of the lineup.
In profile, the 2019 Camaro looks about the same as the pre-refreshed version. Official photos are scarce at the moment, but as far as we can tell, the only changes you might see are the result of the updated front end. Inside, it’s a similar story. The updates to the infotainment system will probably be appreciated, but beyond that, the cabin has essentially gone unchanged.
Out back, designers gave the Camaro fewer updates than up front. They did, however, give the Camaro new taillights. Instead of the previous car’s boxier “hockey stick” lights, the 2019 Camaro has taillights that are much more rounded. With four distinct ovals, we think they pair especially well with the quad exhaust on the Camaro SS.
