As other bright members have mentioned most can't handle change and they will knock what they don't have or won't have. Only thing I can agree with the haters is that the V6 models look pretty bad compared to the SS models shown at different auto shows around the country. GM has stated clearly that they wanted to differentiate between the models and honestly I'm happy with that decision. Gen 4 V6s looked terrible compared to the SS model and it's going to be the same for the 14-15 model. I can not wait to see a 14 SS 1LE in Summit White ... That hood is gonna look amazing for sure. Everyone that keeps hating on the 14s go google some SS/ Z/28 pics and start drooling cuz once you see one pass you then reality will kick in. And as someone else mentioned it's pretty funny that a lot of people defend the 10-13 models when most people are trying to find ways to mod the looks on them. I say everyone give the new SS/ZL1/ Z/28s a chance to come out then judge. Those pictures are garbage V6 models which are disturbing to say the least.

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.
That front grill with that god awful chome looking strip is just horrible no matter how you look at it.... I thought newer models were suppose to improve on the previous years cars. But that is just awful. It kills the looks of the entire front end.

It reminds me of someone that came from the dentist with braces on their teeth or some rappers chome grill over their teeth.

the haters lmao coming from some one who has never had a camaro maybe if you had the 10-13 one you would see why ppl don't like the new one.. so you can't talk bad about ppl that own the 10-13 model for not liking it unless you have had it and can look at it everyday.. now the z/28 is a different story cause of the body kit wheels and everything else lol

So a Z/28 is going to pass me by? How many do you think you will actually see on the road? It will be limited numbers and a track car. I barely see any ZL1's or even 1LE's so the chances of seeing a Z/28 will be slim to none. People aren't hating on 14's because were jealous or resist change the fact for some and including myself is they look like shit. If i want one i can easily trade my 12' in for one but that won't happen any time soon. The only mods i did was change out the tiny stock rear spoiler for a Havoc rear spoiler. I can see people changing alot more parts on the 14's than a 10'-13' Any ways good luck with your soon to be ugly ass 14'

The exhaust looks better from the back without the two toaster shaped mufflers. I'm OK, just OK, with the design and 90% of the public won't even realize there is a difference. The only big negative I have is the position of the fog lights. Remeber in the 70s the front and rear changed every single year. I loved the Endura bumper on my '71 Formula Firebird and the split bumper Camaro SS is among my all time favorite cars. The 5th gen '10-'13 will become a classic and is near pefection. A lot of time went into the design and I believe they nailed it so any changes just for the sake of a "refresh" will never look as good as the orignal design.

OK nonRS bumper but RS on the grille and trunk. I don't get it.
I actually like the rear end but that nose makes me cringe.

Not that anyone cares but I like the refresh and the more I see it, the better it looks. To me, the refreshed Camaro is a more futuristic version of what I had in my 2010. Sure, I love the tail lights/rear end of the current version but the new one is very appealing in a different way. Chrome strip on the front? Indifferent. If I don't like it when I get a 14 then I'll remove it/paint it, etc. Since I don't currently own a Camaro (sold my 2010 last September) I will be in the market again soon. With the exception of the new Vette (or a really stupid deal on a 13), I am not looking at any other vehicle. While my needs are for a daily driver, I am also very interested in the Z/28 (a bit of sound proofing, etc and that might do the trick...). Regardless, I've enjoy reading all the comments but I am surprised by all the "HATE" vs a simple "not a fan yet", etc. Final comment/question... I've seen pix of 3 different versions. Is it possible that one is a V-6, one is a TT V-6 (hence the dual exhause) and then one is the V-8 (SS).

There is no TTV6 in the 5th gen. It just has the NPP exhaust.

I like your approach. All this "hate" and almost no one has seen one in person!

If the Z/28 looks so good, why not just buy an SS. and add the necessary pieces from GM / aftermarket and have the identical look? Should look equally great with 20" wheels and should not be too hard to pull off.

Personally, as a GM and Camaro fan, I'll just wait until I can see an SS in person before forming my opinion.

Hate to say it but GM is heading in the wrong direction.
I pre-ordered my 2010 Camaro and fell in love with the car from day 1.

But if GM continues to change the Camaro in this way, they will lose a lot of customers (including myself).

I've owned 5 different Camaros, but this latest design makes me re-think my future choice in cars.

I hope no one is deterred from buying a '14 Camaro because of negative comments they see here....A car is only new once, and there's nothing else like it...Some variety in the 5thGen for a change, all good...I look forward to seeing them on the road and here in the forums...

I'm keeping my '11 regardless...I don't flip cars on a whim...The '14s just took down the others a peg in value, imo...With a choice for a new look vs. a four year run of the same look, new and used '14s and '15s will do better on the used and new market...They are just cars, boys and girls, all subject to the same game as the rest of the makes...

The chance I wouldn't take is not getting one of the 5thGens at all, regardless of the year....The 6thGens are not too far away, and much more dramatic changes will be in store there...Then what are you gonna do...lol...

Well...I like it. But not enough different to trade in my '10 for. Maybe if it had the hood vents, but not enough change.

I will put it in other words, why cant GM get it right first time and force us to buy and customize?

That is aint cheap man
