The pricing date hasn't been nailed down yet but should be sometime in June. That means a lot of people will be ordering without knowing pricing, much like the previous model years.

So glad that those tail lights and tiny hood extractor will be changed again by the time 2017 comes out. Awful.

I dont know if anyone noticed this...but it says the Z/28 is going to be 300 lbs lighter than the ZL1... I was under the impression that it was 300 lbs lighter than the SS....so the z28 is only about 20 lbs lighter than the SS coupe!

Guess it does have a heavier motor though!

The lights look better on the current model. Could have used a bit redesign to make the rear look more aggressive. What they've done now is make it "generic" looking.

I'm thinking the look of the '14 will increase the resale on the 10/11/12/13.

I think its a typo. But maybe the CAI, bigger custom exhaust and agressive tune is givin the extra torque...

I like the new design. The front has a even more menacing look to it. (imagine seeing that run up to you fast in your mirror). Also a functional hood scoop. The rear end with the valance, license pocket and tail lights taking their cues from the 69 and other years has a good look to it. Pictures never do a car justice, just wait until we all see this in person...

Good job Camaro team!

I think the 2014 will grow on all of us eventually

I think the 2014 will grow on all of us eventually. I was not a great fan of the 5th gens when they first came out. I don't know about the tail lights, but something looks familiar here.

I agree that the retro elements will probably be fading away. It was the right way to reintroduce the Camaro, though. That being said, it makes me love my 2011 even more since the styling of that strongly appeals to me. The Camaro needs to evolve or it will stagnate and die. And there will be elements about the refresh and next generation that will appeal to new potential Camaro owners. Even though the C2 Corvette Sting Rays looked awesome, if they were still making them like that 50 years later it would be kind of sad and pathetic. I just hope subsequent generations of Camaro still say "Camaro" as clearly as the 5th generation does.
