Why would anyone give a crap what Honda Prelude tail-lights look like?....So what if the Camaro has the same basic style?...They are not identical...I never knew what Honda tail-lights looked like til now...lol...so what?...

Sure, the new Camaro ones wrap around...bfd....lol...They look just fine...Pretty sad to think a big difference for some between the Honda and Camaro needs to be the tail-lights...That's missing out on the whole car entirely...lol...whatever...

^It only matters if you prefer the 2010-2013 rear. I do. If I'm fortunate enough to get a Z/28 I'll change the rear and rear lights to the euro design. Thanks for asking!

You're welcome...lol....And yes it's a preference...plain and simple...but a legitimate reason to bash the '14? and suggest it shouldn't even be purchased by first time buyers? or be boycotted entirely?...stop making them?...lol...I would think not...

What I don't understand is why the people on the negative side have to jump into every thread about the 2014 refresh, often multiple times, to repeat their opinion. I didn't like the 2010 from the back in the beginning and took a while to be OK with it and I wouldn't have a Camaro with a V6, but I'm not going to rag on the people who have one. It's still a Camaro and we're all GM/Camaro people. We just have different likes and dislikes. Someone above posted about them all being jelly beans if we liked the same things. That is right on the money. Step back and take a couple of deep breaths. You can just say you don't like it and we will respect that.
LOl Man this guy cheevey jumps on every Camaro 2014 thread all the time and always SAYS THE SAME SH8T I don't know to me alot of these guys sound like haters maybe because their cars are gonna look out dated? or they can't afford to trade in for a new one or buy one. If you don't like it just say you don't. You don't have to go on every single thread saying you don't and repeating the same stuff over and over like some gentlemen here. I appreaciate GM for trying to please the Camaro community and they did everything (mostly) everything people wanted and now that they did they hate it?

To me, the Euro rear end is far superior to this disgrace of a refit. I just finish talking to a chevy dealer in Florida this past weekend and his dealership increased the asking prices on their in stock 2013's stating they don't expect too many sales of the 2014's when they hit the showroom floor.

That front lower grille in the V6 fits horribly. I mean, it hurts to look at it. Back end is OK.

Thank GOODNESS I have a '12.

Ugh. The only thing I find intriguing about these spy shots is the exhaust system. They ditched the suitcases for something new. If the engine (V6) is the same, I'm curious to find out how the new system sounds.

Otherwise, this redesign--for me--is a fail. Not liking it at all, front or back, on the V6.

Have not read this whole thread but I don't really care what they've done to this masterpiece - I have a 2013 SS and love it. What really matters to me is what Chevrolet plans to do for the 6th generation. I will eventually need a new Camaro that's equally cool!

In the 14's defense. Every single person that I know that has seen it in person says it looks great.

Back is similar to the prelude, the front resembles the 2013 jetta hybrid with its chrome trim. Maybe it would look less awkward with 4 doors. Camaro had its ups and downs in design over the past decades. Cant wait to see the next generation.

funny these 2014 supporters, trying to defend a failed design attempt. Why should we(naysayers) support this design? Be sympathetic that it's another Camaro? Look at all the other Generation that were like yeah it's OK, but never sold squat. Is that acceptable from a business stand point? Wake up already. Why do you think GM went bankrupt in the 1rst place, because their car designs were lame, uninteresting, and didn't sell. Blame it on the economy, right. Why did the Imports have better luck, then? Blame it on the stagnant designers that couldn't come up w/ a design that sells. Seems to be cycling that way again..albeit the Corvettes & Cadillacs might pick up their slack..

..there's way too many 'thumbs down' on this refresh to consider it be a success, imo. Another refresh tweaking may be deemed necessary to change minds and increase sales, prior to the 6th release.

I agree, I was never and never will be a fan of ANY of the older camaros. Just don't look interesting to me in any way.

The first render of 5th Gen Camaro is amazing and that is why I have one.

The new Camaro render is not very good looking, My brother looked at the pic and said " That is not the new Camaro, that thing is ugly! This is an April fools joke." He wouldn't believe me until I showed him the rest of the thread.

I mean maybe the old car was too aggressive of a look compared to the corvette and zl1, so they toned it down to sway buyers to more expensive cars.

I really cannot see why they did this, I think they should have just left everything the same way and put in LED taillights, new interior, new hood, new wheels, new spoiler, and put in an option of Recaro seats, then call it a day. It probably would have been much cheaper for GM to do it this way too.

I dont think this is going to put Chevrolet bankrupt again...I do think the camaro sales are going to decrease for 2014. I think they did a great job on the Corvette, so hopefully the 6th generation Camaro will be much better.

Dont fix something that isn't broken CHEVROLET!!!!

Wow, Still NOT LIKING the refresh.

The Problem with this Refresh is that we went from a car that looks killer and beauty from every angle. Too a car the Only looks good at a few angles, AND I MEAN A VERY FEW angles. Good being the keyword here NOT beauty.

NOTE TO SELF: DON'T WRECK YOUR CAMARO.

I think the grey Camaro is a V6 "Performance Pack" test mule. The suspension ride height is low and the exhaust is interesting.
