Both media and consumers had plenty of criticisms for the 2019 Camaro’s front end. The design, which lasted for just one single model year, was panned for its awkwardly placed Chevrolet bowtie badge in the middle of the center crossbar and contrasting black painted sections that made it look like it was sporting a neatly lined up goatee.
The 2020 Camaro, by comparison, moves the Chevrolet bowtie from the crossbar to the upper portion of the grille and also does away with the black painted section. This has tidied up the car’s front end massively, if you ask us, and also made it so your eye is no longer immediately drawn to the oddly placed Chevy badge.
We were expecting GM to make this change after it previewer them with the Camaro SS Shock design study at last year’s SEMA Show in Las Vegas. The automaker hinted at the time that the concept vehicle previewed upcoming design changes, although it wasn’t clear at the time how quickly it would be able to fast-track them to market.
“Customers spoke, and we listened,” said Chevy’s director of passenger car marketing, Steve Majoros. “The overwhelmingly positive reaction to the Shock’s stylized design helped prompt its transition from concept to production.”
