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

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.

Not digging the 14's. The front fascia change is ok but that back-end looks terrible. If they wanted to consolidate the taillights, why didn't they just use the euro tail lights and add a different/more aggressive diffuser to change the look? That would have turned out much better honestly.

More than anything, who thought it was a good idea to replace Inferno Orange with Red Rock? Typical dull GM color that belongs on a sedan, not a sports car. I've liked most of the changes they've made up until this year's. I guess I should be glad to not covet the new model.

Not a fan or the rear at all. It seems to me like the rear has gotten worse. The front is alright, but I don't like the single vent. I'd prefer to have two vents. I think it would look a lot more stylish, and put together. Also, I do NOT like the rear tail lights. I'm not very happy with the new design.

I think the only thing I like about the 14 over my 12 is the rear spoiler. I still like my 2012 best. It's A good thing, when I told my wife they had made some changes to the 2014 Camaro before I could say anything she said WE'RE NOT GETTING ANOTHER ONE. Ha Ha!!!!

Im glad I got my 1LE when I did. The rear end on my car just looks tough. The 2014 not so much. They could have made the rear end look alot more aggressive like the stingray.

I think GM missed the mark on this refresh across the board. I love the fact they made the Z28 but hate that they only offer it as track toy for the rich and famous.

I own a 2011 which I absolutely love, and for me it is a good thing that I do, because I do not like anything after 2011. Hopefully the 6th gens will be better.

The Editorial and Dev teams appreciate that.
You're welcome I can't take credit for something that's not mine. Any thank yous I get from members here go directly to you guys at Autoblog for doing the real work. I just uploaded the pics.

BTW I like the car, although I would prefer that the taillights were like the Z28. I haven't owned the Camaro so I haven't fallen in love with it as you guys have.
I wonder what changes the non-RS/RS changes are?
Also, I don't know if anyone noticed it but the color of the Camaro seems to be one of the new ones.

Glad I bought a 2013..........taillights, change to rear end of being bend in the middle of the rear or trunk, the larger rear diffuser, the valance in the front looks as if its missing a couple horizontal grill pieces, the extractor is too far forward to move much heat and too small to look nice..just a zl1 wanna be, as is the DRL treatment though it is the lone thing looking better as the halos are squeezed into a grill area so small they had to remove the mailslot to make it not look so small.....and not a great fan of the wheels: look like run of the mill. Sorry though I love the camaro its a fail, the whale tail type spoiler is just o.k. and the moving of the rear extra brake light a must as the spoiler sticks up so high. For a one year offer they spent alot of effort to retool some what, and a 69 camaros taillights are trimmed in chrome and much nicer than this round the corner flat ugly tail light...the 69's were rectangular.
If they had say trimmed the windows with chrome, made round tail lights trimmed with chrome, did a real nice heritage type grill trimmed with chrome added some nice chrome and added some slick chrome lower moulding on the side and some new graphics it would have been a real hit more with us allready owners of camaros. As it is I cannot see anything I would like on my car and thats sad. They made the retro less retro.

What are rally stripes going to look like with that hood vent? I would have gone with 2 smaller vents like the 3rd generation Z28. Rest of the front looks ok. New spoiler looks good, but the tail lights are too large.....should have been a modified design of current ones with integrated backup lights....the reshape of the rear end/license plate cutout is good too.

I'm anxious to see the wheel offerings....hopefully 19inch (to reduce weight)

The new tail lights might grow on me, but I've gotta see them in person to really formulate an opinion.
