2019 Camaro SS Exterior Colors Surface46
The refreshed 2019 Camaro SS was unveiled in a deep blue color (called Riverside Blue Metallic). Though generally an attractive color, the hue doesn’t seem to truly show off the revised front fascia of the new pony car. But now, we’ve dug up images of the 2019 Camaro SS in different colors via the official Chevrolet website, and we have them for you just below.
Overall, Chevy shows the 2019 Camaro SS in these seven exterior colors:
- Mosaic Black Metallic
- Garnet Red Tintcoat
- Red Hot
- Satin Steel Grey Metallic
- Summit White
- Riverside Blue Metallic
For the sake of comparison, buyers of the 2018 Camaro SS could choose from 11 different hues, so we wouldn’t be surprised to see more colors added to the palette in the near future.
The GM Authority Take
Having looked at the updated Camaro in Grey, Summit White and Red Hot, we have to admit that the 2019 Camaro SS, whose front fascia is significantly different compared to its LS and LT siblings, and one that has been criticized by many fans and enthusiasts, looks better in a lighter/brighter color than the blue in which it was introduced.
Of course, some might not share the same opinion – so tell us what you think in the comments below.

How many shades of the same color can we get?
Truly indeed what happened to the brighter colors that camaro was known for?
In my recollection there was a hugger orange that was really nice on the camaro and now every shade of gray or black is the norm. And shades of neon on a camaro only makes me think that they are really smoking something other than cigarettes at GM. They will never duplicate those beautiful exterior colors from the first gen.
Lol….got to have those black and gray tones so that the customer can spend thousands more of those dollars on the all black wheels to go with that exterior paint color, I plan on getting a new GMC Sierra by May of next year and I don’t plan on doing away with the chrome wheels for the “blacked out ” appearance .
What an ugly abomination. GM has a serious problem with taking a somewhat decent vehicle, and making it utterly offensive in a mid cycle refresh. They need to keep whoever designed this front end far away from any other GM product.
That’s what happens when you get something right the first time and then you try to make it better.
Funny, the current SS front looks great in any color. Another glaring problem these new pictures/angles show is in addition to being a complete mess, the front also is disproportionately small. Also, the refreshed lower trim models look only marginally better. Hardly the bar GM should be striving for. Recall the whole thing.
Totally agree. what a mess Al Oppenheimer should be ashamed of himself. That’s why i went out and purchased a 18 zl1 convertible before they screw that one up too.
I feel like no Camaro in history has ever had a front end as toyish and bad looking as the current ZL1, so I guess it’s true what they say about opinions. The 2019 SS while better than the ZL1, isn’t great. 2019 base model looks great.
Al Oppenheimer is Camaro Chief Engineer. He is not responsible for styling.
I think they got the idea for this look from the 1973 camaro.
I’m actually fine with it. Maybe allow a few more options for the exterior but over all it’s okay.
Its not okay the car was distinctive. Now with the new design its going mainstream just like the rest of all the other cars. they all look the same. looks like an avalon and even a resemblance to the new accord. If head of GM i would fire the whole design team. what an abomination.
Love the front…Question the back. Looks like they took a step backwards on that.
That is an extremely ugly grill. Why did they do this to the Camaro?
It looks almost as bad as the new Avalon.
It wouldn’t be nearly as insulting if the current front ends weren’t as nice as they are. These are not improvements! What exactly is the point of ruining a great design…
Summit white will never die.
GM, why the tiny pallet of Camaro colors!?!? This really grinds my gears. My wife and I are looking at a base 2018 2.0T, and pretty much every other car on the Chevy dealer lot has more interesting shades available than the Camaro. Looks like it’s the same thing for 2019 now. Even if they add a couple more hues, it’s still the same old stuff. I hope I’m proved wrong later this year when the car is actually released. In metro Detroit, I regularly see Purple and Bright Green Dodge Challengers, Grabber Blue and Bright Yellow mustangs. Even if you like just a normal red, blue, black, etc, you have to admit, the Camaro color selection sucks! For goodness sakes, you can get an Equinox in green or orange! (OK, I’m stepping off my soap box now)
GM usually reserves their best colors for models like Camaro and Corvette. Most mainstream models, Buick and Chevy, have the dullest seletion of colors in the industry. Look at what Ford, FCA, Toyota or Honda offer on models like the Fusion, Grand Cherokee, Camry or Accord and compare to a Malibu, Equinox or LaCrosse. Where are the rich, deep reds or blues, blue-greens, or even sparkly greys? GM’s colors usually lack sparkle and depth, probably because of more penny pinching. Then they charge extra for most of them.

The renderings from Camaro6 by Peter167 that were featured on GM Authority yesterday are way better than this design. For the love of god, I hope GM makes changes prior to production.
Love it. The redesign looks great and the color choices are perfect. This car is about performance not crayon colors. I cant wait to buy mine. Heartbeat of America!!!!!
Nobody wants to see a brown or tan Camaro! These colors are perfect!
Agree with the majority here….this is poorly designed! Both this and the 18 Mustang.
OTFLMAoff… I guess freedom of speech doesn’t exist at the ‘Authority’. Shameful behavior.
The only color that looks decent is the black but only because it hides that abomination of a front fascia.
Lipstick ? on a pig. Can we please get off that damned retro ‘69?
John McElroy of AutolineTV spoke with Paul Czornij the Head of Color Design of BASF NA, Nancy Lockhart the Color Marketing Manager of Axalta and Jane Harrington the Global Color Styling Manager of PPG said the planning for new car colors can take as much as 2-3 years meaning it’s not as simple as one might think; but has to assume that if someone high up in the food chain of a car company wanted a specific car color for a specific product.. it will get introduced within 4-6 months.
Unreal that it has to take that long for a new car color. maybe GM should have another paint company create the new colors.
I’m with the majority here… not digging the refresh. At a minimum, move the bowtie back to the grill. I am one year out from buying an SS1LE and now I’m hoping there will be at least one new ’18 on the lot… maybe the ’19 in the SS1LE will look a little better.
do yourself a favor go out and find an 18 that you like cause the new front end is ugly. the back end looks just as bad. unless you are willing to wait for the total redesign go out and do it.
