We remain on an opposite side of the camp with our belief that Chevrolet has rather extensive design updates planned for the sixth-generation Camaro. The mid-cycle refresh, likely coming for the 2019 model year, has no choice but to play catch-up to the 2018 Ford Mustang, which now makes more power than a Camaro SS.
Things are chugging along because spy shots show the 2019 Chevrolet Camaro testing alongside its Camaro ZL1 sibling and a Shelby GT350. These spy shots still show the 2019 Camaro slathered up in pretty heavy camouflage at the front, but it’s clear there’s a reworked look hiding underneath. It might just be our eyes, but the hood looks slightly longer and we can definitely see sharper, reangled headlights beneath the camo. However, the camo also extends well beyond the actual car, so some of our proportion observations might be an illusion.
At the rear, things look relatively the same, save for the taillights, which might receive some minor updates as well.
Still, we’ve believed for awhile Chevrolet will attempt to jazz up the sixth-generation Camaro after tepid sales in its first few on-sale years. The car’s design is often debated as too evolutionary from the fifth-generation car.
Chevrolet has no planned press conferences for the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show, which rules out a 2019 Camaro reveal this year. However, the rest of the auto show season will unfold starting in January at the 2018 North American International Auto Show. It doesn’t seem unlikely we’ll see the refreshed 2019 Camaro bow then. If not, certainly sometime in 2018.
