The front of both cars is nice, with the nod going to the '14. Nice, agressive re-fresh that actually looks newer, cleaner & meaner.

No matter how many times I see it or from what angle, I can't get my head around the rear of the '14. I don't see it ever growing on me. It's not good. It doesn't exude "Camaro". I could live with it but I certainly won't go out of my way to get one.

Please Chevrolet, do something with the rear before the Gen 6 arrives.

The front end on the '14 is 100% KILLER, but the back, sadly to say, is hideous! Maybe I could get used to it because the front looks so damn good.

In the darker color, without the chrome strip (RS pack) the 14 front looks good, rear still sucks though.

Overall I'd get the '13, I think it looks more muscle, the '14 looks more racer/ricer (to me)

Gotta be honest, the 2013 does it for me without a shred of doubt. The front end and rear are where it's at, hands down.

Love the front, not feeling the back, on the 14 that is. Wish they would not have gotten away from the separate rear dual lights, it gave it such a more aggressive and muscle car feel imo.

The front end does look more aggressive when you see them side by side which was the intent.

For some reason that '14 reminds me of an old Acura TL.

I like the 2014 front end, but don't like the rear end. It's basically just a compromise with the new and old front end and rear end. Go for 2014 because it's newer.

Gotta chime in and say I really am digging the '14 1LE in Silver. Love the contrast between the monochromatic silver color and the black hood wrap, black wheels combined with the new styling of the hood and front end...just looks bad-ass to me! Not too worried about the rear....kinda neutral on the change. I'm getting closer to pulling the trigger and buying my first, and this combo is really pulling on me!

Ok I'll admit that the front end is growing on me. In fact it looks pretty damn sweet.

But the back end...........I'm sorry I just HATE it.
