Not the chrome tape bumper, or how half the halo's are now covered.
Not the smooshed looking top grill.
Not the smallish hood extractor. If it was larger it could look good, but it looks out of place small.
Not the tail lights at all. I mean WTF is that.

Overall the refresh had the right idea's. They just made bad decisions with look.

Would of like to of seen some material changes to the interior also.

I really want to love the refresh but it hasn't grown on me at all. Still need to see it in person but all the pictures didn't change my opinion no matter what angle they take the shots at.

that chrome upper lip on grill really puts a cherry on top! I understand trying to attract more eyes, but it also pushes the already attracted camaro fans. Not a fan of the new designs. ZL1 power plant is a good choice though.

The 2014 conservative styling makes me think GM is going after more Corvette buyers wanting a back seat.

My guess is the gen6 will go back to a more bold approach with the same tone it down refresh in 2020.

reminds me of BMW, they make a beautiful degisn, then f it up and the the next design looks amazing in comparison aka 6th gen will be intense

And I agree a hundred percent, 2014 plus, RS package looks like absolute **** The non rs applications actually looks great
Feel bad for the 1LE and ZL1 guys, wait so long for the perfect package and GM redesigns it within a year. Stupid

When GM came out with the 2010 Camaro it was the complete package all the lines matched. The front and rear had hard edge lines like the side of the car. I think the major problem with the refresh is they softened the styling in the front and rear. It does not flow at all with the rest of the car. Plus those taillights

It's going to be ridiculously expensive. That's what I'm seeing so far. I'll stick with mine, and wait for the parts to get cheaper when everyone trades in.

LEDs are superior to incandescent, and are in fact becoming the standard of the automotive industry. LED headlamps are right now only on high end cars, but will soon trickle down to all cars. In 10 years you will not find an incandescent rear tail lamp, and only a few cars will have halogen headlamps, if any.

The next Camaro redesign will have standard LED tail lamps on all trims, and may have optional LED headlamps. If not standard LED headlamps on some trims.

LED uses less current, lasts longer, operates cooler, and is far brighter than incandescent bulbs.

Wait until you see it...the lines still flow. After spending some time - I think most will understand what they did. IMO - it's a "sharper" look...not better or worse, necessarily...just sharper.

And the tail lights look so much better in person, fwiw. They have a sculpted character, and complex glow that pictures don't capture.


EDIT: General Plea to members of Camaro5:

WAIT TO PASS JUDGEMENT UNTIL YOU SEE IT IN PERSON.

This, more than any other Camaro model to date...does not look good in pictures. You need to spend time with it before deciding whether you like it or not...because frankly, until you see it in person - you don't know what you're looking at.
