They took design clue's from the retro models, but the 2010-2013's are not retro. The Challenger is a retro design and remains much more true to the original challenger than the 5th gen camaro.

The taillights on the 2010-2013 were modern and unique. The taillights on the 2014 are not.

The front on the 2014's though looks more modern.

The fronts are the same, but not the grill as far as I can tell.

Recall someone asked a female concerning the rear tail lights and she said " looks like a soccer mom's car ." I may have misquoted.

That was me. She said the taillights where plain and looked like toyota camry taillights. She said the overall design looked more luxurious and geared more toward a soccer mom than the 10-13 design which in her opinion looked more fierce. That is just one opinion though. She did like the car overall though.

Where did I call the 10-13 retro? I said similar....
My point was the 10-13 had more old style to them and just adding old style tail lights could not made it look more dated.
Anyway how many cars had LED tail lights on them back in the 90's?

The grille. The RS has it's own grille that comes with the package. Every 2014 pic I have seen has been RS except for the Z/28 which doesn't offer the RS package.

I like the Z/28's grill better than the SS/RS grill and will probably change it out once it becomes available.

There seems to be 4 different grills that will be standard depending on which model you get. The Z28 has the diamond shaped openings, the ZL1 has the same grille as today, the RS has the large square block openings, and the non RS V6 has a similar design to today's standard grille ( the non RS/SS may have this grille too but I haven't seen any pictures of one yet to confirm that). I also note that on the option sheet they listed a Body colored Grille, maybe a new style Heritage Grille?

I have been waiting for the 2014 ZL1 for 3 years now, since the 2012 was announced and I start preparing myself for it. I really thought that the 2014 production was going to be something out of the hook (better performance and look)! I know it is hard to do something better then what was already close to a masterpiece (in my opinion), but please GM do something more for the ZL1... I know it is the moment to spend more time on Z/28 project, but please... The ZL1 it is a rare car, and it deserves it!

The ZL1 demands the different, demands parts that are different from the others. In my opinion I did not like the looks of the new spoiler for the ZL1 or even the rear diffuser. The spoiler on the Z/28 it is amazing, why not get that exact one for the ZL1? I fell in love with that spoiler! And that colour of the Z/28, please make it happen for the production, I don't care how much, just got to have it!!

About the 2012 front in the 2014 front, I know it is for cooling purposes but why not a different grill, or a little change? Why not the new front with redesigned cooling ducts for better cooling/breath? From my understanding the Z/28 also needs lots of air, but was that breath decision made because of the forced induction of the SC? The air intake of both cars are in the same area, is there a huge difference on air quantity?

Please GM, do some changes in this ZL1 (on the pictures), I have been waiting for long and change a lot in my life for this car, and I still want one in my garage!

I will be waiting

And I kinda like the taillights of the Z/28 better than the LED ones. And the new hood looks awesome (but the extractor I didn't like much)! Good job!

By the way, thanks for the post!

seeing those pictures hurts. the zl1 is a complete mismatched. they could of keep the old rear end until the next gen arrives. with that diffuser so high -i know gm wanted for it to look less big butt--but now your eyes are seeing much more the lower part, of that rear bumper, and it's unfinished very ugly . like a cheap kit that's missing a lot of parts.

and what about that oversize dungeon hole for the license plate?? ouch! what a poor design. it's absurd. awful ugly you name it. that rear end just don't fit in there. the old versio had a better flow more tone down much more well incorporated in the bumper. why not making 2 bumpers euro and us??

even on the new vette the diffuser is way too high. my plan was to order a 2014 zl1,in january .. i guess i have to chase down 2013, or make a quick order while it's still in production.....

Bring it on. Drop that price and I'll be even happier. So many whiners that beech and moan that it's too ugly. Love it. Great for me. Hopefully it hurts sales just enough to make them offer the ZL1 with rebates/discounts and I'll be one happy camper when I go write that check for my 2014.

Can't say I was a big fan of the flat black hood on the 13 1LE but this hood with the vent in it just looks ridiculous IMO. I do kind of like the rest of the updates though.

Wonder if the Fessler Moss tail lamps would fit in place of these refreshed tail lamps.

The haters are writhing in their ignorant bliss... this is a beautiful car. It may not be as beautiful as some other year, but it's way cool to me. The haters have to own up to dealing with 2014 owners soon.

It's crazy to see so much hatred on the "prelude" or "asian" inspired tailights yet they turn a blind eye to their "import tuner" hoods and accents thrown onto their car to make it "unique"

They nailed it with the changes to the 14 ! More aggressive front and out of the transformers cars !

So, because both cars have rectangular lights means they look the same? That doesn't make sense. The design of the lights on the Camaro are different from the prelude IMO. The prelude has a clear section that goes along the entire bottom of the tail light. Camaro is outlined almost entirely by LED with the backup light in the center. I think people are making a mountain out of a mole hill. I like both versions of the rear end. I think the old ones look more aggressive but the new ones make the car look wider same with the new front. Not sure if I like the chrome strip on the front though... time will tell. I have my 2014 1LE ordered so I'll know that in about 8-12 weeks from now. If I don't like it, then luckily there is a robust aftermarket for the Camaro that I'll be able to search for a replacement.
