Chevrolet Camaro Will Come With Smaller Price Tag?

Well, you don't have to worry about that anymore as the camo has officially been cut loose on the 2019 Camaro and it's...well, it's interesting.

The Camaro SS (offered in 1SS and 2SS trims - in coupé and convertible models) on the other hand, is powered by a 6.2 litre LT1 direct-injected Small Block V8, pushing out 455 hp and 617 Nm of torque (unchanged from before). The front fascia has been completely re-worked, as has the rear. It joins existing V6, SS and ZL1 1LE combinations. There's also Sport and Track driving modes to select from inside the vehicle. Gone are the two scoops flanking the sculpted lines of the muscular hood. A new headlight and grille arrangement has been introduced which, according to Chevrolet, also helps aid airflow and engine cooling. 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.

A press release this morning shows that Camaro's 6th Generation was all-new for 2016, sharing updated suspension with the Cadillac ATS and power from the Corvette.

At the rear, the fascia has been redesigned to look less angular and it appears that the SS badge looks less forlorn than on the previous sixth-gen. The changes to the rear are much less drastic and are kept to reshaped taillights and a slightly adjusted rear bumper. This is a departure from the previous slim, sleek design. The new LED taillamps get a more sculptured evolution of Chevrolet's signature dual-element design; red lenses are featured on LS and LT, while the RS, SS and ZL1 feature dark-tinted neutral-density lenses. They honestly remind us of something that would be more at home on a Malibu, but they aren't the worse thing in the world.

CBO Sees $804 Billion 2018 Deficit, $1 Trillion Gap By 2020
CBO says economic growth from the tax cuts will add 0.7 percent on average to the nation's economic output over the coming decade. For 2018, the deficit is expected to top $800 billion, about $140 billion more than the shortfall past year .

Also new for model year 2019 is the 10-speed automatic transmission that comes with paddle shifters and "custom launch control and line lock".

Just the 10-speed alone would be worth updating for us, but Chevrolet wasn't content with just updating the V8 models. The new Camaro 1LE Turbo possesses 275 horsepower or roughly three times the 90 HP "Iron Duke" engine of the first four-cylinder Camaro introduced in the year 1981. It includes an FE suspension with larger diameter front and rear stabilizer bars, tuned dampers, stiffer rear cradle bushings and cross-axis ball joints in the rear tow links for better lateral stiffness.

This new model aims to further this, by spreading the availability of the "1LE" handling package across the turbocharged four-cylinder models.

There's new styling front and rear and the track-focused 1LE option has finally been made available with the Camaro's 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 base powertrain. The rear camera is said to drastically reduce the Camaro's substantial blind spots. Its result was one of the worst-performing Camaros ever sold.
