Color me odd, but I like it and also don't mind the small rear lip spoiler on the red car. It has a slightly sleeker, less boxy look which is fine with me

That's really ugly. The taillights aren't half bad when they are lit up, but that's about it.

Not a fan at all, I'm sorry. Doesn't have the "wow" factor to me..to each his own whom ever purchases a 2014.

I was hoping the V6 versions would look better than what I have seen so far. I did notice the non RS V6 red one had no chrome strip on the front and the grille is styled similar to the stock grille now.
As of right now I am not feeling the changes were for the better.
I'm feeling similar. I'm still reserving final judgement for when I see the refresh in person, but I sure am not getting the, 'holy cr@p, I must have it!' feeling that '10-'13 gave me.

I'm a bit bummed, because I planned on ordering one exactly to my specs after I paid down my current model a bit more. Now I feel like I'll be waiting to see what the next gen looks like...

I think human nature plays more of a role here than some would care to admit...

Who wants to think what they recently paid big bucks for is yesterday's news already?

In today's world, and the market these cars are in, can you really believe the older ones will now go up in value?

How many features on your existing car do you complain about, yet you are still happy with it and glad you bought it?...

We have already made a purchase and a decision to buy what we like, the new '14s yet to be sold will enjoy the same enthusiasm....

I just can't get used to it yet, especially from the side view, the new front end really changes the body lines for me, maybe after a while I will get used to it, I guess

First the Z/28 looks Great! However I'm sorry to say based on these photos sales will drop for the V6 and SS. They've lost their aggressive look. Way too pedestrian. The good news they will have to make changes if they want to increase sales again.

not sold on the 2014 model, at all. It looks like an 'angry' import now. and why does the lower front fascia nose not match up w/ the lower grill(shadow)? What's up w/ the fog light bezels(looks smashed in)wth?

This is true in certain situations. However for car enthusiasts they'll like newer versions of their car. There isn't much envy around here.

That said I plan to trade mine for a truck soon, and even when I don't have a camaro anymore I think the 14 models are butt ugly compared to the 10-13s

What's up with that itty bitty spoiler on the non-rs. Looks too feminine for the over all masculine design.

I think I am very happy to have a 2013 model, the last year of one of the best designed cars of my generation.

Although... I will be jealous if it gets a bump in power and/or suspension upgrades. Looks wise.... ehhh.... it's okay, I still expect it to grow on all of us after a few months.

We'll be welcoming the future members with these cars so I think we should get used to it and simply embrace the design.

That's just crazy!
They should give the refresh crowd their own board so we don't have to continually mock them here......They can call it "The Fugly Fourteens"

I know GM thinks this is like the steering wheel change where people griped, and eventually got over it. However this mid cycle enhancement seriously makes the car less desirable. The execution is terrible, and honestly something no one asked for. Between me, my wife, and my business, we have owned four 5th gens now..and I have absolutely zero desire to get a 14 or 15.

I think the ulimate question would be....does the changes that GM made for 2014 make someone who would not have bought the old design buy the new one. I think the answer is no.

My personal thought is that this shows the importance of Bob Lutz, and what can make it through the pipeline without him there.

You know what this refresh really means? It means that if someone asks what kind of car I have I tell them "2010 Camaro" ..emphasis on the "2010".

As always, will wait to see it in person before making final judgement, but even in pictures I don't get the need for that chrome strip along the front in the RS package. Looks tacky, and doesn't belong on a Camaro IMO. Maybe a Malibu, but not the Camaro. Throws off the whole front end for me. The taillights I will have to see in person as well. Some pictures they look ok, others not so much.
