Could have wrapped some yellow up front... and eliminated both side markers. May have balanced the look some.

They are individual. My guess is for brightness. Notice how much more bright the new ones are. They appear to be the DRLs as well so that's probably why they did that.

True. I think the 2014 front will look more clean with the 2013 rear. I will blackout both the front and rear light areas.

In this video Mark Dickens mentions that the side rockers are new too. Has anybody else noticed a difference? I can't tell.

1.they went too high with the the diffuser's on the 2014 Camaro and Corvette.

2. if there's a difference in the rocker panels i'm having a difficult time seeing it.

3.1LE in these pictures does have a tough stance though.

Probably because these aren't production cars. They're still testing hardware, so they threw that on even though it's a different color from the body, but it's something they had to Frankenstein on the spot. Notice all the other ones have some jury rigged antenna on the trunk instead of using the spoiler antenna? My guess is that's also not a production spoiler and they're testing aero/fitment/etc before they integrate the antenna...

Regardless, won't buy one. Gen 5.5 is definitely one to skip for me. :(

Does this mean you've decided which car to get?

I feel like the 1LE needs to have the black/dark grey lower rockers, it would help complete the look.

Feeling pretty sure about the Z/28. Final cost and availability are still unknowns. I had a PS done by Brunogadget and it came out pretty close to what's in my mind...I really like it. Have you seen it?

Since seeing this post I have come to the conclusion that the 2014 seems to have a sharper angle towards the ground. The 2013 rockers have a softer slope. I could be wrong but that is what I see. Key in near the back tire you'll see it.... maybe.

still don't like the rear at all. I don't care for the front much either. I wonder how much horsepower this new design will add, if any.

It gets the same exact V8 engine options, but those tail lights add about 25 hp.

Honestly, this refresh makes me sad more than anything. I soooo love my Camaro: more every time I drive it! I love romping on it (within limits: still breaking it in) and all the features. Top down lately has been a dream! And I love the way it looks from every angle. I will literally just pop my head into the garage to peer at the car's beauty. After spending years considering what my new car would be, it seems very rare for a car to be gorgeous from every vantage point. IMO, with the refresh, it's lost that advantage: both the front & the rear (especially) are now unappealing. Thankful that I've got a '13, and hoping that the 6th gen styling considers every angle, symmetry, etc and makes everyone forget the errors in the refresh.

I just showed my wife the 2014s and compared them to the 10-13s
...
She said she likes the 2014s for herself because they look more "feminine". Particularly speaking of the rear lights and front end as a whole.
...
I don't listen/take advise from my wife too much, but when I do she's usually right. And when she's right, it's usually bad news for me.
...
I'm trying to decide if I should go with a 2013 or 14 model, and if I go with a 14, she'll definitely want to drive it. And anytime I drive it, I'm going to think about this post and how she said its "feminine"

Like the 1LE, Not a fan of the halfway 'updated' ZL-1. Really glad I have a '13. This makes '13 the only year with great styling and Mylink

I think the changes make the car look more modern. I really can't wait to read what everyone thinks when the 6th gen comes out. I hope it looks like a 2nd gen!! Really, I do!!

..yup, modernly boring, so as to blend w/ everything else out there, then people start asking yo, is that a new Honda Prelude?.

The 1LE looks fantastic. I never really liked SIM on the Camaro, but that looks great. I like the front, I like the rear (especially w/ that black spoiler)....I just don't really care for the side profile now - looks like the front dips too much.
