2019 Chevy Camaro pricing revealed in configurator

Four-cylinder and V6 get a little cheaper




If you've read our review of the new four-cylinder 2019 Chevy Camaro 1LE, you know that pricing for that model has been announced. It's not the only 2019 Camaro with pricing, though. We've discovered that the configuration tool for the updated model has gone live in 95 percent completed form. It has all the options and pricing, all it's missing is photos of the different vehicles. While it would be fun to actually see the car we've built, we're more than happy to finally know what the car will cost, and it can be more or less than the current one.

Starting with the turbocharged four-cylinder Camaro, the base price appears to have dropped $405 to $26,495. This is for the 1LT, which is the new entry-level point for consumers. Oddly, the 1LS, the base trim on the 2018 model, is still listed, but says "See dealer for pricing." It may be that the 1LS trim will be a special-order trim, perhaps for fleets or for some other purpose. Supporting that theory is the fact that it only has one wheel design available, and can't be had with an automatic. The same situation and price difference applies to the V6, which now starts at $27,990, $405 less than the 2018 version. Adding the 1LE package adds $4,500 to the price, and selecting a convertible adds $6,000.

The savings end with the Camaro SS. The base-level 1SS starts at the same $37,995 as last year's model. The 1LE package is the same $7,000 as last year's model, too, and the convertible upcharge is $6,000 as with the smaller engine options. The Camaro ZL1 actually increases in price, and this is due to a higher gas guzzler tax. The new final price is $64,195 for the coupe, which is $400 more than the 2018 example.

Other interesting notes from the configurator are the addition of a few new colors. For no charge, there is a new medium dark blue hue called Riverside Blue Metallic and another silver color called Satin Steel Gray Metallic. Hyper Blue Metallic leaves the premium color list, and in its place is the bright orange seen in our four-cylinder 1LE review. That color is called Crush and costs an extra $395, just like the carryover color Garnet Red Tintcoat. Some new stripe options appear called Spider Stripes and Stinger Stripe. Unfortunately since images aren't fully supported in the configuration tool, we can't tell what they look like. There are of course a myriad of other very minor changes such as wheel design options and accessories.

2019 Chevy Camaro ZL1 1LE spied completely undisguised

The ZL1 1LE skips the 2019 Camaro front-end redesign



The Camaro received a controversial styling redesign for the 2019 model year, but it looks like the ZL1 is going to skip the front-end changes if these new spy shots are representative of the final version. Every other variation of the Camaro's lineup got an entirely different front bumper, grille and headlight arrangement. Yet this 2019 ZL1 1LE looks indistinguishable from a 2018 model when viewed from the front.

Go around back though, and we're met with the much less questionable rear fascia update - it sure looks like Chevrolet is listening. A new bumper cover and taillights makes it look like the other 2019 Camaros here. If you look closely on the roof, you'll see a camera peeking out the back of the fin there too. Chevy has this new camera mounted in the rear spoiler on other models, but the thin, giant wing on the ZL1 1LE is clearly unable to support that.

No powertrain changes are expected out of the 2019 Camaro ZL1 1LE, and that's totally fine. The 650 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque produced by the current model's supercharged 6.2-liter V8 is perfectly sufficient. Chevy has got an eye on its rear view mirror for the time being though, because Ford appears to be prepping the monster Mustang Shelby GT500.

2019 Chevy Camaro shows off new color, new SS nose at SEMA

The new fascia looks so much better




  • 2019 Chevrolet Camaro SS Shock SEMA Concept
  • 2019 Chevy Camaro SS Shock SEMA concept car
  • Image Credit: Chevrolet



Chevrolet announced that it will be showing off a mildly customized 2019 Chevy Camaro at this year's SEMA Show. And it's rather interesting for a couple of reasons. First of all is the color, which is aptly named "Shock." It's a tennis ball yellow color that's actually very similar to what was used on the 2017 Chevy Camaro Turbo AutoX concept from a couple of years ago. It will be available early next year on the 2019 Camaro.

The other interesting part of this Camaro is that it could be considered an admission from Chevy that they didn't quite nail the looks of the 2019 Camaro SS. You see, this glowing show car is an SS, but the front fascia is very clearly different from the production model. The production SS has a giant black center that blends in with the rest of the grilles, and features the bowtie badge square in the middle. The Autoblog staff is divided on the new face – some say it looks like a 2018 Camaro hit a large animal and punched a giant hole through the middle.





But this show car moves the badge to the upper grille, like on the 2018 model, and paints the center bar the same color as the rest of the body. The result is something that looks like the much more conservative four-cylinder and V6 Camaros, and to the 2019's detractors it's a major improvement for the SS. It blends with the rest of the generally unchanged body, and looks sleeker than the full, flat face of the 2019 SS model.

The question is, will Chevy make this less controversial fascia available to the public? The company says it's just a concept design, but it's possible Chevy will be gauging the public's reaction to decide whether to introduce it. If any stylists, executives or other GM employees are reading (and care about our opinion), we'll cast our vote in favor of the show car's face.

The 2019 Chevrolet Camaro Will Bring Life Back to Our Boring Streets in Highlighter Yellow



The state of car colors in America is bleak. Despite some automakers offering a decent color or two, U.S. streets are overrun by black, white, gray and silver cars. But the 2019 Chevrolet Camaro is here to highlight those black and white streets like required reading for school, with Blinding Yellow as a factory color.

Alright, the color is actually called “Shock,” but both are accurate: It’s shockingly, blindingly yellow.

Chevy announced the color on Tuesday, saying it would be out for all of the avid Paul Menard fans in this world to purchase in early 2019. The press release also talked about the car’s “expanded portfolio” of “accessories” and “performance parts” like a new spoiler, performance seats, brake upgrades and carbon-fiber components for the sole purpose of owners talking about how their cars have carbon fiber, but who cares about all of that?

This vehicle comes in highlighter yellow, from the factory, without any expensive wrap jobs or attempts to color it in with an actual highlighter.

Highlighter yellow! From the factory!


Image: Chevrolet
Perhaps there is hope for this world after all, or perhaps it’s just the warm glow coming from that highlighter-yellow Camaro that’s making us think there’s a light at the end of the tunnel.

Either way, the world is a better place with this car in it.

2019 Yenko Camaro Lineup Revealed With Up To 1000 HP











Special Vehicle Engineering has taken the wraps off the 2019 Yenko Camaro.


Based on the 2019 Chevrolet Camaro, this year’s lineup includes the entry-level Yenko/SC Stage 1 with a custom-built 6.8-liter V8 engine. It features an aluminum block, a forged steel crankshaft, forged aluminum pistons and CNC ported cylinder heads. The engine has also been equipped with a supercharger and a custom tune.
Thanks to these modifications, the Yenko/SC Stage 1 Camaro develops 835 hp (622 kW / 846 PS). This means the model has 380 hp (283 kW / 385 PS) more than the standard Camaro SS.
Besides the high-performance powertrain, the car has been equipped with a carbon fiber hood and 20-inch wheels with a gunmetal finish. Interior changes are minor, but include sYc embroidered front headrests, Yenko-branded floor mats, special door sill plates and an individually numbered badge.

The Yenko Stage II Camaro is largely identical, but it features a significantly upgraded engine. Among the changes are a 20% larger supercharger, high-flow cylinder heads and a bigger throttle body. The engine has also been equipped with stainless steel long tube headers, an upgraded fuel injection system, a performance exhaust and a more aggressive tune. These modifications enable the output to climb to 1000 hp (745 kW / 1013 PS) and 875 lb-ft (1185 Nm) of torque.
The rest of the car is largely identical to the Stage 1, but the Stage II is distinguished by unique wheels and 1000HP badging.
Since the Stage II is based on the Camaro SS 1LE, the car also has a sport-tuned suspension, magnetic ride control and a limited-slip rear differential. Other highlights include a heavy-duty cooling system, Recaro seats and a front splitter.
Production will be limited to 25 units each, but there’s no word on pricing.

Chevrolet Reportedly Rushing To Change The Camaro’s Front Fascia







When Chevrolet introduced the 2019 Camaro earlier this year, fans were split over the facelifted model’s new front fascia.

While the standard Camaro adopts a fairly conventional front end, the performance-oriented Camaro SS is distinguished by a big black bar and a flowtie. That design hasn’t go over well with fans and an unscientific poll of our readers found that a majority of people preferred the pre-facelift Camaro.
It appears the criticism hasn’t fallen on deaf ears as Chevrolet will introduce the Camaro SS Shock concept at SEMA later this month. The model is notable for more than its Shock yellow paint job as the concept has a revised front fascia with a painted bar and a repositioned bowtie badge.

While Chevrolet didn’t say much about the new front end treatment, GM Authority is reporting the company is rushing to get the new design into production. While nothing is official, the report suggests sluggish sales are to blame.
That seems a bit premature as the 2019 Camaro recently began arriving at dealerships. However, the publication says “the take rate and interest in the vehicle has said to have dropped.”
Styling is always subjective, but a number of our readers have already said the concept’s front end treatment is better than the one used on the production model. It’s hard to disagree with them as we’re not fans of the styling updates on either the Camaro or the Mustang.
In remains unclear when the updated Camaro could arrive, but an announcement could be made at SEMA. The show kicks off on October 30th and a number of companies have already previewed an assortment of customized models for the event.

Chevy Camaro Could Get New 2.7-Liter Turbo Four And Two Hybrid Options









Ford has already confirmed plans for a Mustang Hybrid and it appears Chevrolet is considering an electrified Camaro.

As noticed by Motor Authority, GM is apparently surveying customers about potential engine options for Camaro. According to screenshots posted on the Camaro6 forums, the engine options include two hybrids variants and a new turbocharged 2.7-liter four-cylinder.
The survey suggests the latter engine would produce 310 hp (231 kW / 314 PS) and enable the Camaro to accelerate from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 5.2 seconds. While the survey doesn’t go details, the engine sounds identical to the one used in the 2019 Silverado. It could replace the current turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine which develops 275 hp (205 kW / 278 PS) and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) of torque.

Besides being more powerful, the engine would put the four-cylinder Camaro on par with the Ford Mustang EcoBoost. That model has a 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder which also produces 310 hp (231 kW / 314 PS).
The survey also mentioned two hybrid options. The first is a hybridized 2.0-liter four-cylinder which has a combined output of 365 hp (272 kW / 370 PS). This would enable the car to run from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 4.4 seconds and return a combined fuel economy rating of 30 mpg (7.8 L/100km / 36 mpg UK). This is 5 mpg more than the turbocharged 2.7-liter engine.
The second hybrid option would be based on the 6.2-liter V8 and bring its combined output from 455 hp (339 kW / 461 PS) to 545 hp (406 kW / 552 PS). The extra power would reduce the 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) time from 4.0 seconds to 3.7 seconds, while also increasing the combined fuel economy rating from 20 mpg (11.7 L/100km / 24 mpg UK) to 24 mpg (9.8 L/100km / 28.8 mpg UK).

While the numbers should be taken with a grain of salt, the survey suggests the entry-level hybrid option would cost $4,000 and be the same price as the 6.2-liter V8. The hybrid V8, on the other hand, would be an $8,000 option or $4,000 more than the standard V8.
Chevrolet appears to be looking into hybrid engines as a direct response to the Mustang Hybrid which will be launched in 2020. The company has been tight-lipped about the model, but has previously said the car will be “all about delivering V8-like performance with more low-end torque.”
Little else is known about the Mustang Hybrid, but rumors have suggested the model will have an electric motor that is sandwiched between a 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine and a ten-speed automatic transmission. This could enable the car to have around 400 hp (298 kW / 405 PS) and run from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in less than five seconds.

Chevrolet Listened And Will Move The Camaro's Bowtie Logo




Such a small change makes a big improvement.
When Chevy first revealed the facelifted 2019 Camaro, we noticed a lot of negative comments amongst our readers about how the car looks. One of the biggest points of contention was the new front fascia. People seemed to dislike the placement of the Chevy bowtie on a black bar, which split the front grille into two sections. Chevy responded by releasing a concept for the 2018 SEMA Auto Show in Las Vegas with a new color and a new front fascia, which is now being put into production.




The concept was meant to show off a new Camaro color called Shock Yellow, though Chevy also used the car to show off some performance parts and a "concept" front fascia. As it turns out, customers loved the new design and GM Authority reports that Chevy has decided to fast track it into production.
The Camaro will now ditch the black bar and move the Chevy bowtie to the upper portion of the grille. We think this is a decidedly better look than what the car was initially shown with (pictured below).






Chevy initially wanted the bowtie to be in the crossbar of the Camaro SS because it would be more in line with other cars in the lineup, though the V6 and four-cylinder models didn't have this same emblem placement. Having a uniform lineup is all well and good but none of Chevy's other cars house the bowtie on a black bar, making the emblem look like it is floating in a void. We applaud Chevy for quickly responding to customer feedback; this minor move has made the Camaro a lot better looking.

2019 Chevy Camaro SS 10-Speed First Drive Review | Shifting perceptions automatically

How does a fancy 10-speed affect the third-place pony car?


MALIBU, Calif. — The updated 2019 Camaro SS might be the third-best-selling muscle car, behind the Dodge Challenger and the Ford Mustang, but it makes a mighty bid for relevance. That's due in large part to the enthusiasm of guys like Mr. Camaro himself — Chevrolet chief engineer Al Oppenheiser, sitting with me at breakfast ahead of my first drive of the new 2019 Chevy Camaro SS 10-speed.

"Here are a few pics of my garage," he gushed, sharing cellphone snaps of his multi-generational stash of Camaros, which include the crown jewel, a lovingly restored and gorgeous 1968 SS convertible. So he knows muscle. And the 2019 SS ($37,000) is a large-displacement monster stalking the land that turbochargers forgot. We're talking 6.2 liters of growly, burbly, naturally aspirated V8 power producing a stout 455 hp and 455 lb-ft. And yes, you can pair the mighty mill with a good old-fashioned manual transmission.

The facelifted iteration of the sixth-generation Camaro that debuted in 2016 adds an available 10-speed automatic gearbox, revised front and rear ends with new LED taillamps, updated 20-inch wheels and a new third-gen infotainment system. But before you go bashing the two-pedal setup, spoiler alert: This is no uninspired slushbox. It's actually really good. The multi-clutch 10-speed was co-developed initially with Ford(go figure), and claims shifts in as little as 150 milliseconds — faster than Porsche's PDK dual-clutch. Interestingly, Oppenheiser says he was so impressed with Porsche's predictive tachometer, which blips down to meet the projected rpm in the next gear, that the feature was incorporated into Camaro.



For what it's worth, the Camaro's new mask-like face has gleaned more than its share of controversy. However, haters should note that the so-called Flowtie — introduced on the 2014 Camaro Z/28 — serves a functional purpose by channeling up to 3 cubic meters of air per minute through the front end. Nifty.

The Camaro SS's cabin is immersive — and not necessarily in a good way. Shut those big heavy doors, and the high sills makes you feel like you're sitting deep within the vehicle, with large haunches and C-pillars obscuring quite a bit of rear visibility. New for '19 is an available digital rearview mirror that goes a long way towards remedying those notorious blindspots. Even in the convertible version, which has a relatively small rear window opening with the top up, flipping the mirrors to digital mode provides a much-needed boost in confidence and situational awareness. The cabin, understated as it is in color and trim, is decently outfitted save some hard plastic on the transmission tunnel. Real aluminum trim rims the door and instrument panel.

But more crucial to muscle car fanatics is performance and personality, and the SS has surprisingly capable dynamics for a big bore, front-engine car. There's a lovely bass note from the V8, though four customizable settings can vary the sound output, hushing it considerably in so-called Stealth mode. The engine delivers a ton of torquey gravitas, while the 10-speed auto dispatches super smooth shifts at what feels like just the right time thanks to algorithms specific to Sport and Track modes.



But why 10 gears? With the lower gears configured for tighter ratios, the transmission enables quicker acceleration and optimal usage of the powerband, which peaks in horsepower and torque at 6,000 rpm and 4,400 rpm, respectively.

In Sport and Track modes, the steering-wheel paddles are tuned for performance; hold the down paddle for 1.25 seconds and the gearbox leapfrogs down the cogs, even shifting from 10th to 3rd in order to maximize the engine's sweet spot. The so-called liftfoot gear hold function holds the gear during throttle liftoff, and the transmission's programming feels intuitive and user friendly during high-speed driving, offering smooth, extra quick shifts, especially as the analog tach needle approaches the 6,500 rpm redline. Lift off between 3,000 and 5,000 rpm in Sport or Track mode, and a delightful cacophony of pops and burbles fills the cabin. Launch control enables 0 to 60 mph sprints in a claimed 4 seconds flat, while the manual requires 0.3 more seconds of patience. Chevrolet doesn't have official fuel economy figures yet, but the motor spins at only 1,300 rpm at 60 mph, and its cylinder deactivation system suggests the usual gas-guzzling V8 assumptions do not apply.

Perhaps the Camaro SS's biggest surprise came on the twisty roads that snake from Pacific Coast Highway through Malibu's rolling hills. My first go came on a media drive organized by Chevrolet, where 50 or so miles of highway and canyon driving were devoured with ease. My Magnetic Ride Control-equipped tester glided smoothly over bumps and ridges, and body control felt exceptional at elevated speeds; the option is well worth the $1,695 asking price.



However, I wasn't able to fully grasp the SS's performance envelope until I took a Camaro home and revisited the canyon roads later that week, tackling the twisties with more stick. Piloting the Camaro through winding stretches of Latigo Canyon Road between PCH and Kanan Dume Road at speed requires a crucial leap of faith. Despite the perceived bulk of the Camaro and a 110.7 inch wheelbase, there's tremendous grip at turn-in and the chassis is communicative enough to encourage remarkable entry speeds. Four-piston Brembo brakes offer reasonably good feel and strong stopping power. Even more impressive: My week-long loaner was a convertible, impressively responsive for a car with no fixed roof to stiffen it up.

After a week and several hundred miles, my 10-speed automatic Camaro SS experience left me with minor criticisms and quite a bit of satisfaction. Gripes? Well, the small plastic paddles are steering-wheel mounted, and the somewhat slow-ish steering ratio means that manually actuated shifts at lower speeds can happen while arms are crossed over. Despite the aid of the electronic mirror, rearward visibility still lacks. And while interior quality has improved by leaps and bounds over previous models, my well-equipped $54,170 loaner seemed more focused on its road manners and sporting character than cabin material quality. On the other hand, the new infotainment system's 8-inch touchscreen delivers an easy-to-use, lag-free interface, while thoughtful details include the large HVAC vents with knurled temperature control dials around the openings.



All in all, the Camaro SS deserves better than a third-place sales finish behind its domestic sports car competitors. Oppenheiser says more aggressive pricing on lower-end LS and LT models undercut their Mustang counterparts by $1,000 and $3,000, respectively, which could help tighten the gap. But the introduction of the 10-speed auto into the SS model, though not for everyone, makes a strong case for owning a bona fide burbling muscle car that's flexible, comfortable, and capable enough for spirited everyday driving.

And yet, despite endless left-brain analysis that could be satisfied by a quick, smooth-shifting transmission and a powerful but efficient drivetrain, most shoppers will likely gravitate to their favorite brand based on their hearts, not their minds. I should know; the 2019 Camaro SS sold me on its performance merits and charismatic capabilities, but neither it, nor any other force of sports car nature, is likely to alter any fan's brand allegiance. Go figure: Sometimes blood is thicker than fuel.
