The choice seems easy to me....
You need to learn how to express yourself better and tell us how you really feel. All this holding everything back is not good for your health.

Now if I still had my 2010 then i too might be one of the guys saying "The refresh is ugly, get a 2013 blah blah blah" but the truth of the matter is that all these people are most likely stuck with already high payments and there is no way they'd be able to trade their cars in for a 2014 because they'd be so upside down on their payments. So the next thing to do is bash the newer one in hopes that it makes them feel better about their current camaro. Straight up. Fact is, if you get a 2013 then you'll be kicking yourself when the 2014 actually comes out. Keep borrowing your sisters car as long as possible and when the 2014 comes out then you can sit and make an honest call to YOUR liking. Again, I had every chance to get another 2010-2013 if I wanted one but damn that, I want the newest one available.
Thanks man really helped to hear that. I'm gonna wait on the 14 I really like its look because its brand new look its will be different .

Getting mine

I've done some inquiries with Chevy and my preferred dealership on this topic. Chevy said that July 15th was the ship date on the 2k14 Camaro if no delays happen. That was three weeks ago that i chatted with them. Allocation is a per dealership issue. Typically the bigger the dealership, the more allocation they will get. That doesn't necessarily guarantee they will get it sooner than a smaller dealership, but I would expect it to typically work out that way more often than not.

Personally, I say go for whatever you like. You will definitely save more money buying a 2k13 model. You might save as much as 3 grand or more by doing that. I'm personally ordering a 2k14 SS 1LE model so I have to wait because the specific build out that I want is not available anywhere in the country in a 2k13 model. I like the looks of the 2k14 just as much as the 2k13. I like the taillights better on the 13, but the ones on the 14 make the car look wider and so does the refresh on the front clip. I've seen pics of the 2k14 1LE on the road in Detroit and it looks really good. So, I'm fine with what I'm ordering. I think the 1LE looks BA with the black wheels.

But, go with what you like, because in the end, you are the one stuck with what you bought, not those here that are bashing on either model year. If both look good to you and you don't have a specific desire on options, then save yourself time and money by getting a 2k13. If you want something specific though, you'll probably have to wait for the 2k14 models. I hoping to be able to order within the next week or two when my dealership gets allocation. I'm going to be the first 2k14 from their dealership, so they say.

I am tentatively waiting on the 14's. On the other hand, I want to get a hint of any color changes for '15 and/or whether the ZL1 will continue; So it looks like I will be ordering late.

As far as looks, its an academic point but I do like the bold looks of the '14s...especially the rear end (Hard to imagine that I'd be convinced of that).

Not trying to be an outright troll, but if you're already taking the time to put 4 characters into the year, why wouldn't you just type "2014" instead of "2k14" ?

Alright guys - let's clean up the misinformation in this thread. Keep in mind that GM's North American manufacturing shutdown is the week of 4th of July every year. This shutdown takes place to do whatever is necessary at the plant to switch over to the next year's model. So When Reggie B rightfully said "2014 Camaros are scheduled to start up July 15th" he's meaning at the factories. That does not necessarily mean the 2014 Camaros will be in the dealerships before the end of July. I personally do not know, but I would assume because it's a Mid Cycle Enhancement (IE: a refresh) that there is going to be some initial quality assurance holds to make sure that the first 2014s off the line are 100% straight and perfect for the customer.

That said -- my personal GUESS-timate would be August at the absolute earliest but most likely September. The closer you are to Oshawa, the sooner you have a chance of getting a vehicle. One more reason to buy from Becky D if you're on the west coast since it'll take longer for the cars to be shipped across country than it would to get to Detroit and other areas around Oshawa. You can fly into Detroit, pick up the car in person, and then drive it home.

Lastly, if you're trying to get a good deal then the best time to buy a vehicle is at the end of the model year (IE: Once the 2014's hit production in July, the 2013's will be discounted to get them off the lot and make room for the 2014s)


To the trolls that are posting in here just to put down the 2014 -- wait until you see them in person. You may ask - "Why should we have to wait to see them in person, we should like them just by the pictures alone!" My answer to that is that not everyone liked the 2010 Camaro from pictures alone, some had to see it in person. Further, I personally know folks who didn't like the 5th gen Camaro until they saw the 2014 models -- and that's a serious win for the MCE, if they can get people who previously didn't like the car to now want to buy one then it's a major win. Meanwhile, the rest of us will have our 2010-2013 Camaros and will still be happy. Kumbaya.

So glad they changed the tail lights!

I believe a lot of people like myself never bought the current Camaro because of the tail lights. The 14' in pictures looks more like a 68' to me. Can't wait to see it in person. I'll be pulling the trigger if it looks as good as the pics.

Its just my thing. I've been doing it since 2k10. Maybe not the answer you wanted while trolling, but it is what it is.

Time will tell who is right and who is wrong in this thread and by then, probably nobody will care. Hopefully the OP got the information they wanted between the trolling and flaming.

Just for a little reference on delivery timeline with regards to new model year change over. We ordered my wife's car last year June with Becky and the car was built the first week in August and I had a rail car tracking # by Aug 10th. We waited almost a week after the car was offloaded at the rail yard before it was delivered to our courtesy delivery dealer. So this time I will take delivery from BeckyD @ Rodgers Chevy in Detroit since it will get there quicker than down the Southeast coastline to Ga.

I don't know if History is going to repete itself, I got my 45th. In June of 2012 and within a couple of months the 2013's were on the lot. I was pissed because I wanted a Nav kit but the dealership said that they had no idea when the 2013's would be in. At the end of the day I got a great deal on the 45th. Annv. Model and I don't even think about the Nav kit but I lost respect for that dealership and won't do business with them ever again.

Anyway, by my way of thinking options are everything, if you can somehow wait it out so you can drive both the 2013 and the 2014, you'll have the hands on experience that is needed when you're going to drop thousands of dollars down on a new car. No one knows how the new car will perform until it gets into the hands of the consumer. I saw a thread that said they are going to be inking out over 350 hp on the 2014 V6. That alone for me would be worth the wait if you're going that route... Good Luck!

As far as I know (which isn't much ) there's no engine changes for 2014, so I don't know what they would have done to squeeze an additional 20+ hp out for the 2014 v6... Have a link to where you saw that?

Ok... well, are the rumors of the V6 getting twin turbos for the Cadillac CTS real? That's still in the GM family, maybe it will make it to the 2014 Camaro's later on in the model year.

Ugh, I'm off topic, but it would be nice to get a few more ponies out of the V6 while cutting down some of the weight. Cheers!

While no one truly knows for sure (and if they did, they won't be talking ), I do remember when the 5th gen was coming out that we were watching the CTS for hints at what the 5th gen might have. That said - it's truly a guessing game at this point. Just because they put it in the CTS doesn't mean we'll see it in the Camaro.

Personally, I'm waiting for the 2014s. I like the color HUD and control center upgrades, as well as some of the exterior tweaks. Hood intake in the SS is nice, too.

True. Those who WORSHIP their cars always think the new model sucks. I like them, and if I can get a descent price, will trade my 2010 in on one.

Iordered a '14 camaro 2SS/RS convertible early July. Initial build date was July 22 and now my dealer says production date is Aug 12th. I love the new front end. Can anyone give me a prediction of when I will get my car? The wait is killing me. I live near Pittsburgh. 4 kids later and at age 53 I finally am getting my dream car.

I think the rough estimate is 10 days after build till time it reaches the dealer but there really is no telling. Did you order stripes? If so that could add a couple days.

I didn't order stripes. I dealer said they could put them on if I change my mind. I would be pleased if I can get it the first week of Sept.
