Lightbulb 2014 Chevrolet Camaro: Design Details Explained [Video]


Featured on Camaro5 HOMEPAGE


Chevrolet introduced the 2014 Camaro at the New York Auto Show. It is more beautiful than ever, but Program Engineering Manager Mark Dickens says, "It's not just eye candy. It actually performs." Check out the video to discover why Dickens says the styling enhancements were made with performance in mind.

Gonna watch the vid in just a sec, thanks for posting

even though I already have my Camaro, for now anyway, if Anyone has ANYTHING like this to post I'll want to see it and appreciate it. Development will continue for the 5th gen as they work on the 6th gen, so I want to see both

More Aggressive Look???

I don't think it is more aggressive. Don't get me wrong. It's way more aggressive then any Mustang.

As I was looking a the 2014 ZL1 first the front picture... good nothing changed... keep panning around with the pictures... the side looks good... and then I saw the back and was like... something is not right here...??? it just looks off.

People like chrome... I don't. I didn't even like it on the rear lights like in the 2009-2013 models. That just me. Everyone has there preference.

Will see how many 2014 models they will sell. That will say a lot about what people think. I believe they will sell a lot Z/28 because it's a Z/28. I believe they would of sold more if they came out with it sooner though.

I also think the value of all you current 2009-2013 Camaro owners out there has gone up. History has a way of repeating itself.

He perhaps should have said more intense or purposeful, as it looks like a car front-end designed for function rather than the cartoon-y but admittedly aggressive front of the current car. I'm not slamming the current car, but I think this sophistication via evolution is the way forward, allowing the 6th gen car to be evolutionary rather than revolutionary.

Unless a person is blind they know what car is more "aggresive looking"this new car has more options and all that Kind of upsets me ,He is on the very thin line of trying to sell a new car at the expensive of the older cars , Maybe he should just try to sell the car as is without bringing up the better looking 2010's -2013's

All of this complaining over the last few weeks has turned into whining. If you don't like it then don't buy it. End of story.

I, for one, was starting to get tired of the old body style because it made the car look chunky; which is even more true since I laid eyes on the beauty of the refresh.

The 2014 and 2013 just appeal to different tastes. Personally I like my 2013 better, doesn't mean the 2014 is a bad car its just different. It's still a Camaro.

I like the 2014. I may not love it more than my 2010SS, but I do like it. It'll be interesting when they start winding up in the forum how the haters are going to react?

I like 2014 and 2013 both are just fine in my books. I'll be getting a 2013 because I need it before the end of September for company write off.

You know what they say about opinions...

I actually like the new front, IMO it's more aggressive looking. Old style looks "tougher" though. If that makes sense.

I like the 2014 I think they should release the Z28 sooner. I want to order my Z28 as soon as they say we can place our orders.

I'm curious to know how long Mark Dickens has been with the Camaro design team. The design may have a purpose but in no way is it more aggressive.
