2019 Chevy Camaro Zl1 – In anticipation of the Camaro’s mid-cycle refresh in 2019, Chevy is rolling out the first prototypes of its new, improved sports car. Already, we have seen the basic Camaro test high in the Colorado Mountains, but now we have a first glimpse of the entire updated range on the road, and in the flesh.
While the 2019 Chevy Camaro Zl1 was wearing its current face, the other Camaros have a serious camouflage in the front, which probably indicates an important stylistic update for 2019. Maybe it’s the big camouflage schnoz applied, but the front seems less straight, with maybe even a nose resembling a shark down. That or Chevy went very far to hide a pinch and a minor fold. What is clear, however, is the change of lights. The LED strip has obviously been changed, now extending further up past the point currently occupied by a conventional parking light. The whole area of the lighthouses seems to be a little bigger (the white car offers the best view of the new lighthouses).
The changes at the back seem to be minor. The taillights would appear to have more depth and texture for them, while there is a stubby lip that now runs over the outer parts of the lower bumper above the tailpipes.
While the lineup will only see a few minor aesthetic changes overall, it’s under the hood where most major updates will take place. The range is expected to adopt the new 10-speed automatic currently found on the ZL1.
The SS and ZL1 will likely see some minor power bumps, but more importantly, rumors suggest that Chevy will revive the Z / 28 nickname for the 2019 model year. The new Z / 28 will far exceed 505 horsepower (376 kilowatts) proposed on the outgoing model. We’ll know more details when the 2019 Camaro debuts, probably in early 2018.
