I especially love a Black LTZ - the car looks very upscale.

Now - all that said - it doesn't mean a hill of beans what I think....rather, it's what YOU, our Enthusiasts think......

.......and I'll have one at Camaro5fest for you to test drive!

(...along with a Volt, a new Silverado, a Sonic, ..........)

(.......oh yeah, and some 1LEs and RS convertibles..........)

ANOTHER reason to join us at Camaro5Fest!
I'd buy an Impala over a Camaro.

I agree. Hopefully it can be removed otherwise I won't be ordering the RS package. I hat that chrome strip. It looks so out of place. Other than that I love the new front end!

someone mentioned it appears to be easily removed but there would be holes on the underside of the bumper, not easily seen. as for the sides though, i dunno. i'm a big disliker of chrome but plastidip has always treated me well.

Not really liking the changes - especially the tail lights. Pretty much everyone around me over here agrees. I was planning on upgrading to a new SS in next year or two. I think I'll go used instead. Still not a bad looking vehicle, but I think 2013 was the sweet spot for the body. Just my opinion of course.

I'm really hoping GM makes the SS more aggressive looking...... The more I look at it the more underwhelmed I am. I will reserve final judgement until I see one in person though.

Black color with new styling rocks!.....even the taillights are ok on the black beauty. White's pretty good...... Not too sure and not really turned on by any other color I've seen so far..... Agree with nixing the chrome grill trim....

Looks like someone kicked it in the ass and punched it in the face.

Still hoping it looks better in person.

Here's to 2010-2013 5th Gens!

I do love the Summit White, and if I get it I am going to probably put some dark charcoal metallic stripes on it. That is dependent, however, on whether I can find some awesome candy apple red metallic vinyl stripes though. I know I'm getting them from Rider Graphix. I want hood spears and devil tail side stripes, gill stripes and lower body stripes. Yep, I know. That's over the top, but that's me. Incidentally, if I get Red Hot the only thing about the stripes that will change is that they will be black. I have to save my decision until I see the Red Hot in person though. Let me know how you like yours. I'm sure you'll have it before me--unless a few grand just happens to land on my front door step.

Honestly, I hate all of the updates except the Recaro Seats.

But to each their own, I'm just glad I got a 2013 1LE
