2019 Chevrolet Camaro: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

Model Preview

The Chevrolet Camaro will be getting a substantial refresh for the 2019 model year. Currently in its sixth generation, the car will benefit from some tweaks to its exterior styling, lower base prices and a new turbo variant of the track-oriented Camaro 1LE.

Although the vehicle's fundamental design will largely carry over, the Camaro will get a different grille, front fascia and redesigned hood. New LED daytime running lights will likely be one of the most obvious differences for most shoppers. SS models will get a slightly different front emblem positioned on the car's beltline that Chevy is calling a "flowtie". One benefit to this may be increased airflow courtesy of larger front inlets.

Under the hood, the base engine will continue to be a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder turbo rated at 275 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. It will be standard in the LS and LT models with the exception of the new 3LT. The "upgrade" engine is a 3.6-liter V6 with 335 hp and 284 lb-ft that's optional in the 1LT and 2LT and standard in the 3LT.

At the lower end of the spectrum, the most significant changes are that the LS will now be offered with an automatic transmission option (previously manual-only), and only with the 4-cylinder turbo.

As before, SS models come with a 6.2-liter V8 rated at 455 hp with 455 lb-ft of torque. At the top of the range, the Camaro ZL1 uses a supercharged V8 belting out 650 hp and 650 lb-ft. A 6-speed manual transmission is standard across the board. An 8-speed automatic is optional on most models, while the SS and ZL1 get a more sophisticated 10-speed unit.

Noteworthy options include a Convenience & Lighting Package ($2,800) in the 3LT and a 1LE Track Performance Package ($4,500) in turbo models. The former adds things like forward collision warning, blind spot detection, memory seats, a heated steering wheel, configurable interior lighting and more. No other trims will be offered with this package.

The 1LE Track Performance Package isn't exactly new, but Chevy is allowing buyers to add it to Camaros with the 4-cylinder turbo. Previously, you could only get it with the V6 or SS models. Key selling points include a unique matte black hood wrap and spoiler, 4-piston Brembo brakes, a special dual-mode sport exhaust, 20-inch black wheels wrapped in summer tires, a limited slip differential and more.

Expect a full overview closer to launch.
