'Old', Dude! I have an '11 and I am biased. The 'new' looks like a Pontiac Fiero to me. But I would have left it if I were an engineer. Anyway, I am not a big fan of the new '14. But Gen 6 is on it's way and I hear it will look a Gen 4.

Be happy with what you got and thank GM for bringing back an awesome car that many enthusiasts can enjoy. I'm not sure if it's this forum or there are others like it, but I've never seen so many car lovers bashing each other left and right. What's the point of coming to this site when the trolls run loose on a Camaro that isn't even out on the streets yet.
Funny coming from a guy who in a previous post says he refers to the "haters" as "pansies."

Apparently if you don't love the redesign you're a "hater" or a "pansy?"

Who's the troll? Hmmm.

The old one is the better one, the diffuser on the new one makes it look too plain.

If you compare the current hood cowl width against the redesign hood, the new hood is much wider which makes the louvers look to small. If they had left the hood cowl width the same, maybe raised it to the height of the ZL1 and added the louvers, the hood would actually look really good. My opinion is the hood now looks to washed out or out of proportion. Just my opinion.

Thought for sure that my next car would be a 13 1LE, after seeing pics of the 14 1LE, its going to be a tough call. I guess I'll see what the price difference will be on the two models in a couple of years and then make my call then. Great job Chevrolet and thanks for posting pics, Tran.

This subject has been (beat to death). 99.6% of Camaro owners/admirers believe the old look is far superior to the cheap, Asian-looking, run of the mill refresh that GM thought was a good idea. We get it, the thing looks hideous. Let's move along.

These pictures just remind me of why I went running to my local dealership to hurry up and order a 2013 2SS a month ago. I love the nostalgic look of the 2010-2013. The refresh isn't for me or my taste. Props to those that can stomach it and buy one.

Iv been wondering what they would do with the front of the ZL1, since it just came out not too long ago, and worked so well with how it was. Im glad they are keeping it the same! I dont mind the back... but its just too boring to me. I loved the rear of the '10-'13 more, because it looks more aggressive. But i dont hate the new style. The 1LE looks awesome! The black hood works reeeally well with the new hood vent.

Heck, everyone knows the 2010's were best...and they've just been messing them up one step at a time ever since. Nothing beats the original, right?

I think the pictures look great -- good job to Team Camaro. While it's absolutely no surprise that people who already own a 2010-2013 are going to push back on the redesign (Ask 93-97 Camaro owners what they think of the 98-02 Camaro), I think it will bring new buyers into the Chevrolet dealerships who otherwise might not have considered the Camaro. It's been well received on many websites that are devoted to the competitors (Mustang sites, Challenger sites, etc) so if it means more conquest sales - that's a HUGE plus.

Is it just lighting effects with the camera or are there a lot of individual LEDs lighting up the halos now?

It's not the tail lights that bug me. It's the weird curves on the trunk. I haven't seen one in person yet but from the pictures I've seen, I don't like the look. I'm hoping they look better in real life.

Glad you brought that up cause I was wondering the same thing. It looks like individual lights to me. I'm liking the RS package more every time I see it. I may have to add it to my order.
