Since I still can't decide... I made this

Since I'm still torn between 2013 1LE vs 2014 1LE, I needed to do a side by side comparison. I just felt that the picture with the new 1LE and the V6 camaro was totally unfair, so I put together an apples to apples comparison. Thoughts?

(If I used your picture, it's because you took a good picture of your Camaro, so I hope you guys aren't mad!)

Even though I think the original lights look better both front and rear I would get the 2014 because it's...well...newer.

Also, doesn't the new front have both DRLs and fog lights? (I have a non-RS and use the fog lights all the time to help me spot debris and pot holes at night. You gotta live in Massachusetts or NY to appreciate that!)

I do like the new front end. I think the rear is growing on me. I would be in love if it had the C7 tail lights though.

Best regards,

Even though we have a '13 on order, I have to say, with the exception of the tail lights, and they are growing on me, the '14 is a good looking car.

I like the new front end but still not too much on the rear. I think I would take the 13 and convert the front end to the new

I think it would make more sense to convert the new 14, to have the 10-13 rear.

The front on the new style 1LE looks great. You won't be looking at the back very often anyways, only mustang owners will be .

I Can't tell you how much I appreciate this topic, seeing how Im constantly jumping back and forth between the 13/14.
...
But with the side by side pics you posted, I feel you can't go wrong either way. I'm actually putting in an order for the 14 1LE tomorrow, can't wait! I just can't decide on color because I still have yet to see many color options

I would not recommend any red color. so far, in every picture I've seen of the reds, I did not care for.

If it were the new 2014 front, I'd not like it as much, but the new non-RS fronts look pretty good...especially this 1LE version with the splitter.

Its hard for me to decide, but in this configuration, I'll lean towards the 2014 front.

As for the rear...2013 still gets my vote. But here again..the 2014 non-RS rear looks better to me than the RS rear.

So I guess its a toss up for me!

New Camaro should've had those tail lights. Its a better fit, and would have been a natural evolution. I'd be in love as well. Shame GM.

If I was gonna buy one and had the choose I would get the 14, luv the new front end( looks so mean). And I really don't think the back looks bad. Luckily I'm not in that position. I love my 10'!!!!

That heat extractor does give some additional appeal to the '14...The '14 should win the aerodynamics game at high speeds...You'll be happy either way.

I was thinking total opposite I love all black cars, but for some reason I can't do it with the 1LE hood wrap.
...
I'm not sure if the SS they showed at the NYShow and in the brochures was "Red Hot or Red Rock Metallic" I wasn't a big fan of it, but for some reason I can just imaging it looking really good with the hood wrap.

I asked fbod that exact question. he said it is the exact same car from the tv show reveal, the prior day or so, before the NYshow. He said it was Red Rock Metallic.

camaro got corvette replicas in 10. Wish they would have done a single light, like the 14, earlier. I do like the 10-13 rear, it looks great, but the previous generations did not have seperated lights like that. (i understand the looks of the 68 but it was still a solid unit with 2 inners and they were squared)

Get the 14 !

If I was going out and buying a new 1LE it would be the a '13 2SS/RS 1LE. In my opinion they look much better than the new 14s. Only part I really like about the 14 is no mail slot in the fascia.
