I dont get it; do they all get the dual mode exhaust now? The red one looks like the LT model from the wheels, brakes, front grille, and headlights... but with a dual mode exhaust??? PS I dont like the LT tail lights...I do however like the entire setup for the SS/RS

Dual mode exhaust is an option on the V6 or SS for 2014 same as it was for 2013. Not sure why people see a couple pictures with dual mode exhaust and start making assumptions.

Noone is making assumptions, I asked a question and then backed it up with why I was asking. Hence the main reason for this forum.

These are the first pictures I really saw of the car so of course I would ask about the dual mode exhaust since its on both of the cars in the pictures.

Understood, however I think he was saying that due to the question having been asked and answered already in this thread.

May have been answered already; it appears to me that it is the place for the license plate. Avoids drilling holes and attaching a separate frame.

I have looked at these pictures sooo many times and I just don't like the way it looks...especially the back part. I think that the new changes that they've made with this camaro take away from its looks rather than adding to it. The earlier versions are symmetrical in shape and appearance but the new one is like they forced those small grilles and tail lights on a muscle car. The earlier versions look like an angry cobra...this one looks like a tamed snake. I like the exhaust though. I'm not a hater...this is just my opinion.

Hello everyone,

I've been a long time lurker of C5 for many years, and i hate to seem melodramatic on my first post here, but please, allow me to vent.

I'm 22 and have been saving for a Camaro SS for as long as I can remember. Between university and everything else, it's a long process. This was the year that I'm finally in a position to pull the trigger.

It was all worth it considering the 2010-2013 camaro. It's a true dream car, one that a young guy like me dreams of owning one day. In short, the looks were spot on. flawless really.

But this, Chevy... Man, it's hideous. this is an insult to me, as I always had the dream of buying new this coming year. But i can safely tell you that I'd never, ever buy the 2014. It's downright ugly, and it is far, far from a dream car. It looks like they took the 2010-13, hit it with the ugly stick and spat in all of our faces. WHY? why ruin perfection? Chevy, your original gen 5 is what got me into cars. Yes, it birthed a whole new passion for me. I can safely say that if this were the car that i saw as a 17 year old watching transformers for the first time, I would not be a car guy today.

The camaro was the muscle car of my time. But I can tell you this, it has now become the last-place, last resort muscle car. I wouldn't hesitate buying a mustang or challenger before this if in some wierd twist of reality I was forced to choose between the 3.

Sorry, but it's true. Chevrolet, for the love of GOD change it back, and wish me luck in finding a 2010-2013 model.

Most vehicles today even compacts are getting more aggressive looking yet the Camaro for 2014 has been made to look more sedate. Why? This will no doubt effect sales. Anyone buying a Musclecar wants an aggressive look like the 2010-2013. I will say however the new Z/28 does have an aggressive front view.

I completely agree with this. I am only 20, and when I saw the new Camaro in Transformers- the scene where the 2nd Gen swapped to a 5th Gen I knew immediately that this car would be my dream car. Getting a Camaro has made me passionate about cars. Sure, I always had a general knowledge about cars (but not much more than the average boy). This car has made me an enthusiast of all cars. I think the reason why all of us are so angry with this refresh is that we think it takes away from the legacy of the Camaro we bought into. Sure many of us are thanking our lucky stars we got the Camaro between 10' - 13', but what we are more upset about is the whole brand image change. I think many of us agree that the new refresh just doesn't match up to what we think the Camaro should be. I wish that GM would have accentuated on the Camaro's strong points rather than take away from them.

People are getting mad that people are griping, but we are only griping because we care.

Went out this morning and bought a new BRM 2013.

Not that I hate the '14, but the dealers must getting some extra bucks to push out '13s based on the deal I got on my new 2LS. Way below invoice and rebates (and Private Offer)

Gees man, really? Has it gotten to this point? It's one thing not to like the looks of a car, but another thing to be D*&# about it. So in a year or so when there are new enthused camaro members to this website with their '14 camaros you're going to pull this type of snobbery on them? Hey man, we're all camaro fans. i don't like the changes either, but some of you guys are out of line.

snobbery?..how about 5ths w/ 24s or bigger rims, opinions on those are freely dished out, so what makes this any different? Get some lotion if you're feeling too sensitve..

..on a side note, it'll be interesting to see what mods 2014 owners do.

Well you sure changed your tune didn't you? Alright, all your attempts at cute and clever aside, I'll answer your question for you. No, You won't say a thing. You will run your mouth and shout out to all future '14 Owners here that they're nuts and their cars are fugly, but when the time comes your mouth will be shut. Guaranteed. keyboard warrior. So, like i said, i don't like the changes either. my opinion is strong too. But i'm a bit more mature than you obviously, and i know what's what, and to the people who like the '14 and buy it, all the power to ya, fellow camaro owners!

btw keep the lotion you obviously need it. Done arguing w/ punks, i gotta UFC fight to watch!!
