If you hadn’t already heard, Chevrolet is bringing a Shock-colored Camaro with a “concept front fascia” for the SS model to SEMA this year. In addition to the new color and fascia, the 2019 Camaro also introduces an expanded portfolio of accessories and performance parts.
“There’s a fresh look for the 2019 Chevy Camaro, which is restyled, reinvigorated and offers more choices and new technologies,” said Steve Majoros, director of Chevrolet Car and Crossover Marketing. “It’s the perfect canvas for personalization, and the new Shock color and available accessories demonstrate only some of the possibilities customers have to make the Camaro entirely theirs.”
The expanded accessories portfolio for the 2019 Camaro includes:
- Black wing spoiler
- Fuel door with exposed carbon-fiber insert
- Black Camaro fender badges
- 50-state-legal cold-air induction kits
- RECARO performance seats
- Brembo six-piston front brake upgrade kit
- 1LE suspension components
When installed by an authorized GM dealer, the accessories will be covered under warranty, including parts and labor, for the longer of the following: a) 12 months/12,000 miles (whichever comes first), or b) the balance of the applicable portion of the New Vehicle Limited Warranty.
Customers also have the option to choose home delivery and install the parts themselves, but doing so will negate the aforementioned warranties. However, whether performed by a customer or an authorized dealer, the installation of the parts themselves will not void the new-vehicle limited warranty.
When we first saw images of the aforementioned 2019 Camaro SS, we immediately noticed the restyled front fascia, which has two elements that differ from those of the production 2019 Camaro SS:
- The bar that splits the grille into two is finished in the vehicle’s primary body color, and
- The Bow Tie logo has been repositioned to the top of the grille
Since Chevy revealed the concept-level revised front fascia, GM Authority has exclusively learned that it is being expedited for production – which makes the fascia a facelift of a facelift, since the 2019 Camaro represents a facelift of the sixth-generation 2016 model.
About Chevrolet Camaro
The Chevrolet Camaro is a family of sports cars that includes a two-door coupe and two-door soft-top convertible as well as various performance variants such as SS, 1LE, ZL1 and ZL1 1LE. The legendary nameplate was first introduced in 1966 and went out of production in 2002, when the model was in its fourth generation. The Camaro was re-introduced in 2009 as an all-new fifth-generation model based on the GM Zeta platform.
The Camaro is currently Chevrolet's most affordable sports car, slotting below the Chevrolet Corvette. The current model was introduced for the 2016 model year and represents the sixth generation of the Camaro nameplate. The model rides on the GM Alpha platform shared with the Cadillac ATS and Cadillac CTS, though the majority of the architecture underpinning the Camaro are unique to it.
The 2018 Chevy Camaro represents the third model year of the sixth-gen Camaro that deleted the Camaro 50th Anniversary Edition and the Krypton Green exterior color, while adding the ZL1 1LE Extreme Track Performance Package. There's also an expanded availability of the SS 1LE Track Performance Package, which is now available on the 2SS Coupe, as well as the addition of a washer fluid level sensor.
A midcycle refresh arrives for the 2019 model year that introduces new, model-specific front and rear styling, a new trim level structure for LT models that adds a new 3LT trim, and a new 1LE track performance package for the 2.0L Turbo LTG engine. The 2019 Camaro also brings the new GM 10-speed automatic transmission for SS models, the Rear Camera Mirror, third-generation infotainment systems, and various other enhancements.
