I'll pass on the 14. It's just not as sexy as gen 5 to me. I have the 13 LS. it may not have all the add ons, but I will take the 13 body over this any day.

It's still a sweet ride just not as sexy as it can be for me.

Does the LT appears to have the same exhaust as the SS?

The spoiler is much better. I would like to see an updated blade spoiler.

The taillights need sharper angles, especially where they wrap around to the side. Saying they look like prelude lights is not an understatement.

The RS chrome strip on the front should be black chrome.

The RS headlights should be standard on all SS models.

The automatic SS should have dual mode as an option.

Good god they look terrible. The rear end alone is a major disaster.

Perhaps you people who don't like it or want to keep comparing it to a Honda could start your own thread where you can bash all you want. This thread is for pictures of the new model.

No Arod, I don't. Those are all Camaro backs; not backs of other cars from other companies.

Not really. The 69 tail lights don't wrap around the side. The back itself is well-defined and distinct with a solid look straight across with the emblem centered between the tail lights. If they had divided up the refresh lenses into 3 well-defined segments like the 69 lenses that might have helped. Something along the lines of this on the left side of the left image:

I straightened the top of the lens to eliminate the upward slant, made the inner horizontal section thinner to match the theme of the front of the car and increased the upper/lower outside horizontal segments to give it a stronger look. I also lowered the Chevy logo a tad.

It's not ideal but they really needed to do something bold for the back. The massive lower half just looks so plain to me.

That's my 2 1/2 cents anyways.

Anyone else think the fog lights look too small and to high for that big bottom grill? They look somewhat out of place, maybe they'd look better lower on the facia?

I used to be able to spot a 5th gens rear from yards away, it was unique. Will not be the case with this rear, it looks all too common.

Different strokes for different folks i guess. I just hope the 6th gen looks better then this.
Ya....still not a fan of the refresh when compared to the current camaro. It has been months and it still hasn't grown on me. I will wait to see one in person, but liked the older styling better.

It's still a 5th gen camaro and has presence, but other than the SS square fog light holes I am not still not a fan of the camaro refresh. The front end is nice on the refresh. Other than that, not for me.
