The more I see the new styling more I don't like it. The only car that pulls it off is the Z28.

The 6th gen can't come soon enough.

Tran,

Thank you for posting the pics.

It looks like the '14s are designed to show off the exhaust more than prior years.

The ZL-1 retains the same front end due to airflow, cooling, lift, etc.
With that said, I REALLY like the looks of the 1LE -I actually think it looks more agressive and more refined than the previous version. I also like the tail lights a lot. I agree that the rear diffusor looks odd but it will certainly NOT keep me from getting one (I am more excited now than ever). I've had my heart set on a ZL1 but i really like the new looks of the 1LE. GM may have just saved me some money as I really like the refresh... Now, I just need to see the color of the new "Yellow"...

I liked all the front and side pics, then came the rear pics and I hated it again.

I don't mind the tail lights at all ,but the rear diffuser looks very bad on any color other than Black or grey. Not liking the chrome strip on the front either. What is the purpose of it. There is no other chrome on the entire car. Looks like a Walmart after thought. The more I see pics of this car in different colors the more I'm not liking the new design. They nailed the front end design with the Z/28. It's a shame that you have to pay a premium to get the good looking car. That's where the current GM failed where the late 60's GM didn't.

You know I think with certain colors the new refresh front and rear look alright but with the darker colors for some odd reason it doesn't work as well I don't get it. I know im not getting anyone anytime soon so I don't have to worry about trading or buying for awhile. But it is good to see the 1LE version cause it looks alright.

That's funny you say that. I feel that the dark colors other than the Z/28 are the only ones that look better. I guess time will tell if the public likes the new look.

Thanks for the pics. I still like them. Waiting for some to reach the dealers to look over in person. Too bad we still have to endure all of the Honda and Toyota comments. A simple "I don't like it" or "It doesn't do it for me" would be understandable.

Cause it's the same...I get it. ZL1 retains current front end because of cooling and lift(areo), so the new front end is purely form over function ?

what is that shiny piece in the front grill over the head lights. Is it a chrome trim piece or is it some kind of ABL piping?

I like the look of the redesign other than the chrome strip on the front. Im getting a Z/28 so it doesnt apply, thank goodness. Once the refreshed models hit the road you can bet the "old" design will start to look dated.
