I think so. Appears to me that with the headlights & license plate area that GM is attempting to reduce the number of changes that are required for Europe. I guess this means they only have to change the mirrors.

That is - if we're actually seeing a finished bumper that will be in production.

The Crystal Red is a V6 non-RS.
All you guys have eagle eyes.
Thanks for pointing it out!

I really, really, really like the looks of the refresh.

...but I like the looks of my 2012 even more.

One of the things I like better about the refresh, though, is the RS taillights when they're lit up. That perimeter LED look is absolutely awesome IMO.

I'm glad to finally see the V6 differences, but those fogs do look out of place on it. Too high, IMO.

The more I look at the rear lights, the more I think of a late 90's Honda Prelude. Not a fan of the chrome strip on the front either. The changes have convinced me that getting a 2012 was the right thing to do. Time to start focusing on the 6th gen in 2015.

I really hope the chrome strip on the grille is blacked out on the 1LE. That piece is killing the front for me. And the rear is not getting any better with each new picture coming out...

I was going to point out the same thing...its one of the first things I noticed.

That V6 is LOW. why is that? Its lower than my V6 for SURE and I'm pretty sure lower than the current SS is as well. So why is that? Is that car wearing some kind of new sport V6 suspension or are all Camaros going to be lower now?

My thoughts:

1) If they are all going to be lower...that is great!
2) SO HAPPY that the new V6 front fascia has a lower lip like the current SS has. Its something I've wished my V6 front end had since day one, but I never wanted the mailslot
3) The rest of it still does not impress me or grow on me at all. It looks too wide eyed in the front, fog lights are tiny, and the rear....well its the worst part.
4) The NPP exhaust looks great.

I'm happy with my 2012 SS, that car looks like a Honda from the rear. The Z/28 will not look any different either. Its a shame, that LS7 is a badass engine too.

same.

The white with black on the Z/28 really catches my eye. I am really starting to like these taillights much better than the older ones (then again i never liked those taillights).

I think the perfect blend would have been these tails with the older front end.

Need to see it in person first

+1

I like the refresh just fine. There is always resistance to change. I think that it is funny, though. GM listened to all of the complaints about the 5th Gen from Camaro owners and made some changes accordingly. Now, many Camaro owners are screaming about those changes!

Make your comments, good and bad, because that is what the forum is for. But please keep in mind, life is good when you are a Camaro owner!!!
