Here’s Exactly What’s New For The 2019 Camaro27
We already saw the 2019 Camaro refresh a few months ago, but what we haven’t seen is the complete change log of what’s new for the mainstream Chevy sports car. Luckily, the latest order guide has given us the complete details about what’s new for the 2019 Camaro.
2019 Camaro Models & Package Changes
When it comes to models and trim levels, the 2019 Camaro does away with the LS Convertible model while adding a new 3LT Coupe and 3LT Convertible models.
The Camaro Redline Edition and Camaro Hot Wheels Edition get deleted for the 2019 model year, while the 1LE track handling package is added to the Camaro with the base 2.0L Turbo engine.
2019 Camaro Exterior Changes
On the outside, the 2019 Camaro receives new front fascias for the LS, LT and RS models. Meanwhile, the 2019 Camaro SS gets a new front fascia with a polished black grille. Notably, the ZL1 models do not get the updated front face.
Out back, the 2019 Camaro gets a new rear fascia with sculpted LED taillamps. LS and LT models get LED taillamps with red lenses while SS and ZL1 models get LED taillamps with dark-tinted neutral-density (clear) lenses.
There’s also the deletion of four exterior colors and the addition of three new ones:
- Bright Yellow

Rounding out the exterior changes is the addition of new 18″ Silver-painted aluminum wheels as standard and available only on the 1LS Coupe model.
2019 Camaro Interior Changes
Inside, the 2019 Camaro replaces the Chevrolet MyLink infotainment systems (IOB, IO5 and IO6) with the new third-generation systems, dubbed Chevrolet Infotainment 3 (IOR, IOS, IOT).
Additionally, the Universal Home Remote (aka HomeLink) feature is deleted and not replaced, while the Rear Camera Mirror is added as standard on 2SS and ZL1 models. It is not available on any other 2019 Camaro trim or model.
The cabin ambient lighting gets new blended color choices, while two accessory-level (LPO) interior trim kits – the Blue and Yellow Interior Trim Kits – are deleted.
2019 Camaro Safety Changes
On the safety front, the 2019 Camaro gains the Forward Collision Alert feature. It is standard on the 2SS and ZL1 trims, while being available on the 3LT trim as part of the Convenience and Lighting Package.
The 2019 Camaro also replaces the OnStar Basic plan with a new Chevrolet Connected Access plan. The OnStar Basic plan was included for free for five years, while Chevy Connected Access is free for a period of ten years.
2019 Camaro Powertrain Changes
The 2019 Camaro continues to offer the same engines as the 2018 Camaro, but does gain an engine air filter life monitor on the 2.0L LTG Turbo I-4 and 3.6L LGX V-6 engines.
In addition, SS models gain the option for the new GM 10-speed automatic transmission in place of the outgoing 8-speed gearbox. Meanwhile, the 2.0L Turbo and 3.6L V6 models continue with the 8-speed.
And that’s all that’s new for the 2019 Camaro.

This new Camaro will be on my list to purchase in the near future!
Too bad the ugly is standard, and not optional.
That’s just dumb
I don’t get the deletion of HomeLink? Why? That’s a super-convenient feature!
GM Bean-counters is why. They are always the why.
I am starting to get sick with GM continuing to cut corners while other automakers add features GM always deletes. It is ridiculous.
It isn’t just GM that’s deleting it. I’ve seen it removed on other brands. There seems to be a hissy fit between the new owners of HomeLink.
Deleting Hyper Blue just guaranteed I won’t buy any post-2018 sixth-gen. Long live Hyper/Kinetic Blue. I personally pushed for that color. And frankly I don’t do that kind of stuff with GM these days… I just was sick of GM not having electric blues.
Putting money where my mouth is, I even paid to have my Sky Red Line painted in Kinetic Blue. It’s not my fault they painted it the wrong color, and had to drop charging me… but hey, I won in court on that – particularly easy when they acknowledged the GM color code in writing.
Hyper Blue was probably just renamed. They do that a lot from year to year to make it look like its a different color but the color code is the same. Riverside Blue Metallic is probably the same color since they have been showing the updated camaro in blue.
The color blue is the color blue. To say you wont buy the Camaro because of the color of blue offered is ridiculous and pathetic!
@Brian – Please don’t troll. It’s so easy to tear down trolls. Then you look bad, get even more angry, and just spew even more hate.
Pink is a shade of red. I hope you don’t own red cars, because you just gave permission to your friends to repaint your cars pink if so.
You think I am trolling? Na! These are my real feelings! If you wont buy a car because of the color offered then that person is a (_________)!
I didnt want to offend anybody! The people on this site are so sensitive!
And by the way I don’t own a car painted red!
I strongly suspect it’s a new color code. The only reason Hyper Blue has its name is that GM has an internal rule where two Camaro color codes can’t share the same color. The “original” WA720S Kinetic Blue (used on the Hot Wheels Camaro) took that slot, hence “today’s” Kinetic Blue was changed to Hyper Blue.
The one hint of hope is that GM decided, once again, to remix Kinetic Blue. I doubt it. GM did three versions (Hydro Blue, Kinetic Blue v1, and Kinetic Blue v2) to get that color down pat. GM doesn’t do that with Crystal Red or other colors.
I suspect once again, the dark blue crowd at GM (which is quite strong on the Camaro team, I might add), won out and split the 6th Gen production between electric and dark blue. I hope I’m wrong on that last bit.
Bit of an update: One of my friends pointed out that we have “probably” seen Riverside:
Assuming that is Riverside it is different from Kinetic Blue. It seems GM is using some metal flake trickery. In darkness, it’s darker than Kinetic Blue. But when exposed to light, it’s much closer to Hydro Blue.
Now, we can’t 100% confirm that’s Riverside just yet, because GM did test electric blues on the original Chevy SS only not to take it to production (later Perfect Blue shipped, albeit for just 2015).
Not sure why GM is tinkering with what works… But I’ll sleep more soundly. Still wish it had a lifetime warranty option. It’s hard to pick this over a Challenger that I can put 300,000 miles on, and still not have it totaled out by a maintenance issue.
Not surprising but so very disappointing. It looks like more is getting deleted than added. Worse, the main take-away for me is the 2019 ‘refresh’ is mostly about just some redesign of the nose and tail. Like the only problem with the poor selling Camaro is some minor cosmetic surgery.
Publicity photos tend to make cars look better than they do on the lot. Which is disturbing because the publicity photos for the 2019 Camaro aren’t particularly flattering. But I’ll have to see one on the lot to know for sure if the refresh is as ugly as publicity photos hint at. But more troubling to me is the lack of a serious interior refresh. The interior ergonomics of the Camaro suck. Certainly some of its problems like the ridiculous belt line can’t be fixed in a refresh but many of them can. The vision impairing Mickey Mouse gauge cluster needs to go. The low budget, hard to see (angled down) touch screen needs a redesign. The extensive use of cheap hard plastics needs to be upgraded in at least the higher trim levels.
Finally, the car desperately needs a horsepower boost to leap frog the new Mustang.
Speaking of the Mustang, Ford hasn’t been bashful at all in upgrading the Mustang. One can argue it was a poorer performer so there was a lot more to fix. However, Ford hasn’t simply stopped with performance enhancements. Ford has continually upgraded the exterior and interior which, quite frankly, is riskier on a big seller like the Mustang than a poor seller like the Camaro. Ford has the mix of looks, performance, and price nailed. GM obviously has performance nailed in the Camaro – it’s the top performer in the class. However, other than performance GM hasn’t gotten it right as proved by its poor sales. Yet GM is so very timid in trying to fix this mess.
I guess we’ll have to wait until the next generation of Camaros for a competitive GM pony car. Let’s hope they finally incorporate all the lessons learned from this generation..
So much work on so many detail changes …
And the screen still faces the floor.
The screen is positioned perfectly for the driving position… have you driven one of these?
I’m looking new Camaro too although some people say it is disappoint for whole refresh. Now, I saw bright yellow is dropped by their plain. As favorite yellow, I start felling disappoint. If they dont offer good price too, I may not consider new one. In their list, I saw that refresh Camaro will get new crush Orange color which is already offering in Hot wheels package and only V8 Camaro can choice 10 Speed, but Turbo and V6 wouldnt.
I just saw one drive down my street on my way to work.
I actually do like the new front end in person.
I can’t believe they are letting Ford have more std base L4 and V8 HP. That is an area they should have fixed instead of making the front end so controversial.
It depends on how you look at the whole situation.
Ford’s EcoBoost I4 is the base engine in the Mustang, but the Camaro also offers the naturally-aspirated V6 LGX, which the Mustang does not.
The V6 is truly a better engine than either of the boosted fours for a car like the Camaro or a Mustang.
The Mustang’s higher V8 power is negligible. If someone is buying the Mustang over the Camaro on that, they have problems.
1. “The V6 is truly a better engine” if in stock form than yes, yet many will buy the turbo for the ease and affordability to up the boost to increase power…
2. “If someone is buying the Mustang over the Camaro on that, they have problems.” When I turned 16, my parents gave me a Nissan and when I turned 19 I got their newer Toyota…I graduated college and worked for a year before I bought my first brand new vehicle which just so happen to be a Chevy at 23…You have to wonder if you were born and didn’t have a Ford vs GM (vs etc) biased, but are in the market for a performance vehicle, more power/quicker acceleration may be the difference…
This refresh is awful! Even worse than the Mustang refresh.
I’ll either wait a couple years for new or find a lightly used CPO GT350 or ZL1.
This is ugly!
Please get off this retro ‘69 styling.
That new front end is really ugly.
This car reminds me of the Trans Am in its dying days, which may be fitting because that’s where it appears Camaro is.
This new camaro is a sad discrace to see :(. Think the Co’s of chevrolet are killing the camaros looks, and to have a 4 cyl base version is pitiful. Camaro is a performance muscle car!! Even the v6 is pushing it… They all should have base v8 models, and take these new looks and turn them around an go back to when the camaro used to rule, 60’s 70’s, I c no styling cues that even resemble the older camaros! Looks like and is a damn glorified cavalier, especially ones w the v4, haha. All plastic cheap trim, no metal… A complete discrace to the camaro name and reputation! !
