The fog lights are further apart on the V8. There is no mail slot on the V6.

Just look at any number of picture threads and you'll be able to spot the differences.

The lower front fascia has, as Blur stated, a larger opening, more spread apart fog lights, and the hood has the "mail-slot" on the SS.

The Halo headlights can be had on the SS, too. The car in this picture is equipped with the RS package.

Note that Dragoneye's LT picture has the RS package. Thus, the headlights are different than a base LS or LT. The LS headlights will look like the headlights in the SS picture. The RS package is only an option for the LT and SS trims.

Wow, after seeing the "side by side" or "top and bottom" views...

I think I like the SS fascia better! I like the smaller lower grile more than the SS...but I love the mail slot...and I like how the foglamps on the SS appear round whereas the concept and LT versions look "imperfect" because of the crease in the lower fascia.

Ok, but what's the difference in the rear between the LS/LT and SS? Oh, and just where are the brake cooling slots on the SS?

Never mind on the rear differences. The SS clearly has more pronounced blades on the diffuser panel. Never noticed that before.

one of the biggest differences is that you can get a LT rear and front fascia in blue but you can't get an SS one in blue



sorry, had to say it... lol

As a future SS owner, this comparison of the front end makes me sad. I wish they just added a mailslot to the SS to differentiate the two different models. I know the difference would be more subtle, but the V6 front end (without the pushed out foglights and larger lower grill) is what the 5th gen should look like, period.

For some reason...the v6 bumper looks more smooth and buff head on....but the SS bumper looks not as buff, wider toward the bottom of the bumper, and it looks like it's trying to flatten out into a rectangle IMO

They're both VERY intimidating facias...and "beauty is in the eye of the beholder", but I feel the SS front-end looks undoubtedly more "buff" in person.

I haven't seen the SS in person, only pictures. I'm still getting the SS but it just doesn't look as good to me "head on" as the V6 bumper. I've seen the red concept in person which is pretty much the same bumper that the V6 has and it was GORGEOUS. So I wonder how I'll like the SS bumper in person..

The SS front end is perfect and should look more Intimidating then the Inferior V6... the V8 should have Dual Dual Exhausts on the rear end... o well nothing Custom Mods cant Fix.

The camaro has never in all 5 gens offered much of a appearance change in its diffrent style just look at the 4th gen z28 and the v6, the camaro is mostly about the engine and thats what count but also people that just want a good looking fast car want a appearance change on their more expenisve version they paid for they can easily offer a diffrent style for the black board that the muffles are in. They nead a bigger SS sign too. and they need to put one on the side or under the "camaro" on the sides of the door. Diddences of the ss and rs facia are

1. v6 has no slot, sSS does
2. SS has bigger lower slot, v6 is smaller
3. SS has the fog lights more far apart than the v6
4. the bottom of the SS front facia is differnt from the v6
5. SS has SS badging wich should be in the middle of the grill (or at least make it an option)

Driving down the road, the main visual difference is the fake air scoop. Uh, I mean non-functional slot, uh - Another one of my pet peeves. Make it functional (impossible), so make it disappear. Maybe I'll Bondo it up and Duplicolor it. Not.

I like the SS facsia but but not the SS headlights. I don't think you can get an SS with just the RS headlights but the SS Facsia.

You still keep the SS front facsia with the RS package. It just changes to the halo headlights.
