Personally, i like the 2010 to 2013 front end better, especially when it has the zl1 grille, but i just thought i'd throw up a side by side pic.

I like the redesigned front end. Looks more aerodynamic to me with the smaller upper grill and hood cowl. Still on the fence about the backend. It definitely looks better on the Z/28 than the SS.

Agreed. '10-'13 ZL1 front end is better.

the rear end wouldnt look half bad if it had the same curves as the 10-13 camaro... but because the '14 rear end is so flat it makes the tail lights look bigger and worse than they actually are. also, the flatter rear end kind of takes away the muscle car feel? am i right or is that just in my head?

Like the new front end better, still like the rear end of the 2010+ better!

yeah, i think it looks too flat. It might just be the angles and lighting of the shots we've seen though.

Is the 5th gen Camaro a retro look to the 1967-1969? If so, the 2014 taillights look a lot more like the 67-69 taillights. The 2010-2013 look more like the 1970. I like the new one, although I hope they end up looking like the Z28 and not like the red Camaro pic.

Front end is far better. Rear is to different to judge beyond personal bias. I'm OK with it thought, but maybe it's not as memorable as the current car being too clean tending toward bland. Overall though, a great refresh.

I really like the Z/28 front AND rear (I think I'm in the minority there) but overall I would probably have to say the ZL1 front is the best looking IMO.
