First Pics of 2014 Camaro in the Wild in Ashen Gray & Crystal Red (non-RS bumper)
 
18 Attachment(s)


The Camaros caught here reveal what looks like the standard (non-RS) bumper design for 2014 Camaros. The Ashen Gray Camaro on the road (not the trailer) appears to be a V6 with non RS bumper and no SS vented hood.

Despite the RS badge and unique RS front grille on the Ashen Gray mule, it does not wear the full RS Exterior Appearance Package (without the RS bumper that we saw on the 2014 Camaro revealed at the NYIAS).

The Crystal Red is a V6 non-RS and shows the standard (non-RS) grille.

Compare to the 2014 Camaro SS with the full RS Exterior Appearance Package shown at NYIAS:

Not a fan of the front end or the rear :facepalm:

I wish I had something good to say.

vroomapunk 04-26-2013 10:01 AM

Yuck! Those tiny little non-rs fog lights just stuck in the front, the lower grille is ugly too. The ashen gray on the truck isnt the same one driving around either.

Why the hell is the grille flat, and the fascia pointed?? It looks like it got in an accident.

And no hood vent...

AZCamaroFan 04-26-2013 10:05 AM

i think it doesn't have a hood vent because it is a V6..?
the crystal red v6 you can see the trunk has a built in small spoiler now. looks cool actually.

Eich 04-26-2013 10:05 AM

I've looked at that rear 100 times by now - I still don't like it at all. Maybe the tail lights have grown on me a little. But that license plate area is just plain bad. An otherwise sculpted car now has a HUGE rectangle stamped into it with two unlike materials coming together in a very awkward way.

onechuck 04-26-2013 10:07 AM

Don't like the taillights or that stupid chrome strip above the front grill. Sorry, Ill just keep what I have...

AZCamaroFan 04-26-2013 10:08 AM

yeah i just noticed that. why is the license plate area so large?

Dylan88 04-26-2013 10:09 AM

eesh :yikes:

Demon 1LE 04-26-2013 10:09 AM

can't wait to see one in white !!!

the tail lights on the base really make the car pop. nailed it. the cars needed a full size tail light.

OMG, that front is hideous, guess it matches the rear now. And what is up with that little spoiler on the rear of the red one, better off without one. And why is there an over hang on the front grill, that looks stupid as can be.

Oh how I love my 2013!

European plates are wider.

snizzle 04-26-2013 10:13 AM

I don't think i'll ever warm up to the chrome strip but i'm no longer in panic mode aka Michael and Kelly about the rear.

One reason is probably to accomodate wider license plates outside the US. But the design is boxy and hideous unfortunately. No change was needed there at all.

90503 04-26-2013 10:13 AM

RS in grille....No hood vent....V-6s for sure...

SamHouseIII 04-26-2013 10:14 AM

Thanks for sharing the pics.

And not as tall. So, the license plate area will look oversized and hideous both inside the US and outside !

Really - this was an area they should have left alone. The original was perfect.

Eich 04-26-2013 10:16 AM

I can only hope the aftermarket comes up with something that fills in the entire license plate space, making it look more finished.

midnighter 04-26-2013 10:16 AM

I just dropped on my knees and thanked God that I have a 2010 model.

AZCamaroFan 04-26-2013 10:18 AM

kind of wished if they were going to put the chrome strip above the grille they should have put more trim somewhere else too. front end looks like they were going for more aerodynamic...
don't really think the car looks better, but wouldn't stop me buying one either. man i am kind of liking the V6 without the spoiler look. real clean .

CamaroSkooter 04-26-2013 10:20 AM

The grey Camaro on the road and the grey Camaro on the hauler are two different Camaros.

The one on the road is a V6 (hence no hood cutout and the different fog lights) and the one on the hauler is an SS (hence the different shaped fog lights).

The Crystal Red is a V6 non-RS.

I thought that the refresh was starting to grow on me a bit, especially after seeing the night time photos another member posted recently. However, looking at these photos I am thinking that I need to go to the bank and then contact Becky about finding me a blue 1LT with the RS package and white hockey pucks. Another part of me wants to wait and see what the refresh looks like in person and possibly wait to see what '15 has to offer.

'15 will not change much as it's the last year of this gen.
