The 2019 Chevy Camaro is getting a pretty radical facelift for the new model year. Or at least the V8 SS is, with its enormous new grille. The four-cylinder and V6 models are a bit more conservative. But apparently Chevy is playing things even safer with the 2019 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 based on the spy shots above.
Up front, the new ZL1 is unchanged. So too are the sides. While it would have been interesting to see something a little fresher up front, this is surely a good thing for those who may have feared another rendition of the controversial SS fascia.
The main changes are in the tail. As with the rest of the 2019 Camaro lineup, the ZL1 gets much larger taillights featuring a quartet of illuminated rings. These taillights offer more depth and detailing than those on the outgoing model. The bumper is also changed to match the others with a simplified lip under the taillights and a redesigned license plate section. The rear wing and diffuser appear to be same as the old one, though.
Pricing and availability for the mainstream Camaros have yet to be announced, so exactly when the new ZL1 will show up isn’t clear. We would suspect it would arrive not long after, or even at the same time, as the rest of Camaro line. We’re also not expecting any powertrain changes, so look for the same 650 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque as the last one coupled to either a six-speed manual or 10-speed automatic.

Chevrolet SS Sedan Priced at $44,470
Chevy’s new performance sedan comes nearly loaded.

Chevrolet announced pricing for the upcoming Holden-derived SS Sedan. The rear-wheel drive, V-8 Australian car will wear a base price of $44,470 including a $995 destination charge to ship it to the U.S.
There is nothing ‘stripped’ about the SS – there’s only two options available on the car, a sunroof and spare tire. The lack of optional gear is the product of the SS having just about every modern amenity expected on today’s vehicle, standard. Chevrolet has gone so far as to make navigation system and automatic park assist standard on the new SS.
Part of that long list of standard features is GM’s well-known 6.2-liter LS3 V-8. In the SS the LS3 generates a healthy 415 horsepower and 415 foot-pounds of torque, identical to the former Pontiac G8 GXP, the car the SS spiritually succeeds. The only transmission option is a six-speed automatic. The Corvette’s Tremec TR-6060 six-speed manual gearbox is offered in Australia, as it was on the G8 as well. It’s unclear why Chevy is not providing the manual option on the new SS, however we speculate it is an effort to keep options and complexity of this import product to a minimum.
Speaking of the G8 GXP, it wore a starting price of $39,995 back in 2009. Couple the SS’ longer feature list and factor in today’s dollars, the $44,470 price is not terribly shocking.
The 2014 SS will go on sale in the fourth quarter of 2013 and The VanDevere Bunch can help you get into one as soon as they become available.
