The 2019 Chevy Camaro lineup is getting a slight overhaul with new designs and updated tech and performance features. Well, you don't have to worry about that anymore as the camo has officially been cut loose on the 2019 Camaro and it's...well, it's interesting.

Design-wise, it comes with new headlights which are now similar across the entire Chevy range. The front fascia has been completely re-worked, as has the rear. In the book Automotive Atrocities: The Cars We Love to Hate, author Eric Peters said that its drivers were forced to go through "the humiliation of being left in the dust by K-car station wagons".

Chevy also hasn't mentioned any updates for the ZL1, but the track special is expected to return with a supercharged V-8 with 650 hp and 650 lb-ft. Gone are the two scoops flanking the sculpted lines of the muscular hood. It gets the new "Flowtie", a version of the familiar Chevy bowtie logo that has been engineered to actually help improve airflow through the grille.

The flagship Camaro SS gets a slightly different front-end look with a larger air intake.

Australia, meet your new Chevrolet Camaro. It's designed for drag racers looking to warm up the rear wheels for extra grip before running down the strip. According to Chevrolet, they are "a more sculptured evolution of Chevrolet's signature dual-element design". All Camaros get new rear bumpers and new LED taillights, which are finished in red on LS and LT models, while RS, SS and ZL1 models get dark-tinted lenses that have a smoked appearance (and look especially wicked in person).

"We really wanted to take the Malibu more premium and more upscale".

The Iron Duke only was available in the base "Sport Coupe" Camaro trim, and the engine received a boost to 92 HP for the 1983 model year.

For a long time now, the sixth-gen's biggest strength has been its fantastic drivetrain and even better interior build quality. In fact, it just improved with Chevrolet announcing that the SS will be available with the 10-speed automatic transmission and line lock from the ZL1. This new variant also gets engine, transmission and differential coolers, as well as launch control, a no-lift shift function and electronic sound enhancement utilizing recordings of the actual engine.

Under the skin the Camaro is largely unchanged, although SS models, which pack the 6.2-litre LT1 pushrod V8 engine under the new bonnet, are now able to be ordered with the ten-speed automatic gearbox that Chevrolet has co-developed with Ford. Highlights include the FE3 suspension with its larger diameter front and rear stabilizer bars, specifically tuned dampers, stiffer rear cradle bushings, and cross-axis ball joints in the rear tow links to enhance lateral stiffness. According to Chevrolet, when equipped with the turbo four-cylinder, the Turbo 1LE possesses near flawless 50/50 weight distribution.

The new version gets edgier front end highlighted with a new chrome trim and updated dual-port mesh grill design.

And for those less inclined to pay attention to the traffic in front there's a new available Forward Collision Alert and to count how many Mustangs they passed a new available Rear Camera Mirror plus a new Enhanced Performance Data Recorder System.
