Chevrolet gives the Camaro a fresh face, better tech for 2019

Chevrolet gives the Camaro a fresh face, better tech for 2019

The LS/LT, for instance, is created to look instantly recognizable against the RS and SS. Created to better differentiate the line-up, from the entry-level Camaro LS through to the 455 horsepower Camaro SS, the updated design comes with new cabin and active safety tech, among other things.

Out back, all of the 2019 Camaro models get larger, rounder taillights that will stand out from the current models, but overall, the rear doesnt change all that much. The fascia on the SS model is unique with special headlights, a gloss-black grille, a vented hood to aid cooling and aero performance, as well as special air curtains around the corners to further help improve downforce while minimizing drag.

The new front-end styling with distinct differences between LS/LT, RS and SS, includes the fascia, grille, LED dual-element headlamps and reshaped hood (ZL1 retains its airflow-optimized front-end styling).

The turbo 1LE may "only" put out 275 horses with 295 lb-ft of torque, but it is definitely worthy of being an entry-point in the track-focused lineup. The rear too gets a re-design with the LED tail lamps being new and the rear bumper too.

First revealed in 2016, the then-new Camaro may have looked similar to its predecessor, but under the skin the Camaro was based on GM's latest "Alpha" platform, a compact premium rear-driven platform that was the foundation of the next generation of Cadillac models for the US. Chevy Camaro's traditional red lenses will be available only on LS and LT, while RS and SS get dark-tinted neutral density lenses. An enhanced Performance Data Recorded system is available as well.

It's safe to assume the new Silverado HD will use a few different powertrains, with gasoline and diesel V8 engines likely in the mix.

Never Disappoints At The Masters
He birdied No. 13 after hitting the green with a 234-yard hybrid club from the pine straw to move to 12-under, now just two back. What he nearly pulled off Sunday would have been in the conversation of all-time Sunday performances in golf history.

The infotainment, reverse camera, and forward collision systems are also new. An 8-inch diagonal touchscreen running Infotainment 3 is available, including one with navigation.

That now includes lift-foot gear hold, and a trio of drive modes - Tour, Sport, and Track - along with custom launch control and line lock.

Chevrolet Camaro is an iconic American sports auto which began its journey in 1967. Wireless charging and a head-up display are options. Plus the vehicle gets Brembo brake package with low-metallic performance pad.

It's unclear whether the Turbo 1LE will ever make it to Australia, though with the Camaro 2SS-spec model due this year, it's unlikely we're going to see a 2.0-litre turbo showing up with it.

The Magnetic Ride suspension comes standard on these models with an electronic limited-slip differential.
