The thing I liked from the older camaros was the front end.







I thought the 2013 was more true to the older front end:





The 2014 looks more modern.



Both IMO are great looking cars, but I tend to like the 2010-2013 since I liked the more retro front end and I did not like the retro tail lights.

I don't either. It's so out of place. Maybe it's to try and take away from how terrible the hood extractor looks.

I agree. I still like the 10-13 front end more for that very reason (the retro), but the 2014 doesn't necessarily look like shit. My main issue with the new one is that stupid chrome strip. It looks like such an afterthought. The Z28 they showed didn't even have that chrome strip and its front bumper already looked better as a result! Lol

I take back what I said about the 2010-2013 camaro tail lights not being retro. It looks like they were modeled after a 1968 camaro with modern touches.









So looks like the 1968 camaro rear end is my favorite.

Anyways, I have gotten way off topic and made this thread stray. Sorry. I'll stop.

The chrome strip may be a RS package thing. The z28 did not have a RS package while the SS did. That's why the Z28 tail lights were different and perhaps why there was no chrome strip????

Good to see pictures of 2014 as there is nothing new I like better than my 2011 2LT. Well, perhaps I like the front a little better but not enough for me to consider trading. Will hold judgement on the chrome detail until I see it 1:1 as I have nothing against a little sparkle detailing.
Do not hate the rear end, just looks too generic / bland for me to even think about if I hate it or love it. Think the 2010-13 rear is more unique in a much better way.
Only thing I really dislike is the hood extractor that looks like a plastic part bought from PepBoys and taped on. Know this is some kind of styling trend but it breaks up the smooth body lines. Perhaps if it was painted the body color it would not be so noticeabale.
Agree with about everyone GM needs to rethink their colors for the Camaro. Why would they think people buying a Camaro would want to play safe with color and a body design that screams look at me. More color options please! That includes more interior colors.

Let me know if you get any information on the 2014 1LE. With the hood changes I wonder if the black wrap will still be on the hood or if the vinyl wrap is a thing of the past.

The black wrap will mask that new extractor quite well. It may not be the best looking vent but as long as that sucker works well then no major complaints here.

Interesting and a little hard to understand why they are discontinuing the GFX option. I realize they'd have to somewhat redesign parts of it a little but big deal. Makes me all the more glad I have it on my ancient 'ol 2010. I wonder how long it will take the different aftemarket vendors to come up with one?

<--- jealous of the new red :(

curious to see what the color DIC and HUD will look like.. overall, the refresh is MEH to me.. i feel like 2010-2013 have a more timeless/iconic design

i dont like anything other than the front end of the z/28 and the recaros

They should have just did the afterburner thing on the original concept, I'm pretty sure people would have loved that!

Let's start a I hate the new tail lights poll
They sure don't look retro to me...looks like a dang Mazda going down the road...yuk.

You can always add the body kits if you like the old style front ends...
