So is the front chrome going to be part of the RS package? I wonder if the RS gets its own grille as well? I really like the Z/28 grille.

I think the non RS 2014 model will look better than the RS version. I don't like those LED strips in the taillights at all. The lights on the white Z/28 (front and back) look much better.

With the 2014 you saying that we should take some time to adjust or basically learn to like the changes. That spells failure in my book....but that's me.

I will say that if the lights on the Z/28 are basically the non-RS vs RS, I have a feeling the RS package won't be as popular. There will probably be alot more HID retrofits coming down the pipeline. Either that or lot of non-RS tail light switches coming. Even though both tail lights don't look nearly as good as the previous ones, I think the ones on the Z are better than the others I've seen.

The Z/28 grille does look good. From what I can tell it's almost like a honeycomb design. That pattern should have been on all the 5th gens from the beginning. I always thought the standard grille ('10 - '13) needed much more detail to it.

Well I like it.
Did they announce a power upgrade or change for the L99 or LS3?

Well I clearly get your point,but the truth is "we" can not change what's done by GM, so we must deal with it, and move on. I for one am content with my 2013, and will not be buying any new Camaro.

I hate to say it, but for me the whole thing is a miss. ZL1 and SS/RS of 2010-2013 are so much better IMHO

The wheels are not standard and will be about a 2k options.

Looks like a slimmer ZL1 front end and a skinnier Euro tail in the back. Although its sleek I would not go out and buy one.

I like it. I'd buy one if I didn't have mine. Well, I might wait for the LT1 and maybe that 7speed manual if they ever offer it. I do agree that the red SS does look plain when compared to the white with black ground effects Z-28. Who knows what factory ground effects GM has for the SS? They probably left them off the reveal so the Z-28 looked that much better.

Those tail lights might look better once someone tints them darker or black.
