Good to see some more pics. Will be interested to see the full lineup and how they differ.

I'm loving the quad tip exhaust on the v6. I wonder if that's standard for if dual mode exhaust is going to be available on both engines. Or if the quad tip is included in the rs package on v6's.

To me what the '14 looks like is pretty much a non-issue, due to the fact we all already have a fifth gen...I think no matter what the '14 would have looked like, it wouldn't have been worth trading in for...

Like it or not, it's a new look...Newer than ours...New sells to new buyers.

Like Fred said, how the 6th Gen comes out will be more of an factor for all current owners....

It better be the square. Also would like to know which grill insert. Hope it's the same as the RS without the horizontal bar in the middle.

Prefer the look of the RS version without the Hood vent. The back end still looks bad. Glad I have my 2013

You are not in the minority. You are actually in the 90-95% of the people that DO like the car. You are only a minority in Camaro5.com or other Camaro enthusiast site.

That V6 is LOW. why is that? Its lower than my V6 for SURE and I'm pretty sure lower than the current SS is as well. So why is that? Is that car wearing some kind of new sport V6 suspension or are all Camaros going to be lower now?

My thoughts:

1) If they are all going to be lower...that is great!
2) SO HAPPY that the new V6 front fascia has a lower lip like the current SS has. Its something I've wished my V6 front end had since day one, but I never wanted the mailslot
3) The rest of it still does not impress me or grow on me at all. It looks too wide eyed in the front, fog lights are tiny, and the rear....well its the worst part.
4) The NPP exhaust looks great.
If you look close enough at the pictures, they have about 37 people packed inside that poor thing. That's why it's squatting like that.

Yea, the one on the truck (red) does not look anywhere near that low.

Make your comments, good and bad, because that is what the forum is for. But please keep in mind, life is good when you are a Camaro owner!!!
I don't remember anyone asking for much in the way out outside visual changes, and if they were, it wasn't this.

Guess that could be, but still makes me wonder if the 14s aren't slighly lower. My 2010 has large fender to tire gap.

The backend is kinda growing on me (maybe), but that front end I'm just not feeling it. The fog lights are too small and it looks like they tried to tame the look and make it less aggressive.

Look at the pic carefully. There are four adults in there. That is more than enough to make it squat. The car is NOT lowered.

Really like the rear on the gray camaro, not as much as the original but it does look fresh at least. Not as much a fan of the front end, the upper part of the lower grille really reminds me of a hyundai genesis coupe, which isn't a bad looking car but it doesn't look as muscular.

The view of the front from an angle really makes the hips look huge. The front end almost doesn't look right with that wide rear end following it. I'll wait to see one in person before I make a final decision. Just looks different, maybe because I'm not used to it yet, but I didn't really need to get "used to" the current Camaro, loved it from the start.

Good Heavens, should we get the rakes, pitchforks, torches and and knives out so we can storm the Castle.

The overall design, is starting to get a bit longin the tooth. This will be the fifth model year for the Fifth Gen. Tweaking it a bit here and there, isn't theend of the world.

Yeah, I have not been a huge fan of thenew taillights, but, it isn't all that horrible, in the cintex of where we are at in the product cycle.

My hope is that GM, can hit an equally impressive Home-Run, when the Sixth Gen hits the market.

That's going to be the real challenge going forward.

I still like it. Waiting for some to show up at the dealers for a personal look. Still plan to order an SS/RS.

That spoiler looks just like the one I had on my 1999 Grand Prix. I don't like the spoiler or the tail lights.
