“Lauded since its introduction for its balance of driving fun, refinement and value, the restyled 2019 Camaro reaches even higher with more of the design, technology and choices that customers want,” said Steve Majoros, Chevrolet marketing director for Cars and Crossovers. “It’s a performer with few competitors and a pillar of Chevrolet’s energized car lineup.”

The 2019 Camaro’s updated designs help to improve performance. The grille details and hood and fascia vents were designed for optimized air flow, either to cool components or help minimize drag or lift. Camaro designers follow the mantra that all elements must not only look good but also enhance performance. The new front-end styling has distinct differences between the LS/LT, RS and SS, including the fascia, grille, LED dual-element headlamps and reshaped hood. The ZL1 retains its airflow-optimized front-end styling. The SS model has a unique front fascia with its “flowtie” open bowtie grille emblem and aero-enhancing air curtains, specific headlamps with new LED signature and extractor-style hood.

The RS Appearance Package, available on LT, adds unique polished black grille with Galvano Chrome lower inserts, new LED headlamps with LED signature light bar, specific rear fascia with rear diffuser and 20-inch wheels. All models receive a new rear fascia with specific diffusers on RS and SS when equipped with Dual Mode Exhaust.

The new Camaro Turbo 1LE joins the V6 1LE, SS 1LE and ZL1 1LE to round out Camaro’s lineup of 1LE track cars. Leveraging the impressive performance and ideal weight distribution enabled by Camaro’s 2.0L turbocharged engine, the Turbo 1LE comes exclusively with a six-speed manual transmission and a tailored chassis package derived from the V6 1LE to offer track-capable performance. The 2.0L turbo engine has 275 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. Driver Mode Selector has Sport Mode and new Track Mode; Competition Mode, within Sport and Track Modes, and includes performance instrument readouts, launch control and shift lights.

The standard rear camera mirror on the 2SS and ZL1 models offers a wider, less obstructed field of view using a camera display that eliminates potential obstructions such as rear body pillars or seat headrests. A conventional rear-view mirror view is also available. Forward Collision Alert joins Camaro’s roster of available active safety features.
