Although it was totally overshadowed by the thrilling new Z/28, the regular 2014 Chevrolet Camaro also receives several updates at the New York auto show. It goes on sale this fall. This is the most significant refresh for the Chevrolet Camaro since the fifth-generation car went on sale in 2009.
The most obvious changes begin with a new front fascia, which has a larger lower grille opening designed for less drag and more aerodynamic downforce, as well as a narrower upper grille. A new rear bumper is likewise claimed to improve downforce and stability at speed. New rectangular taillights, now with an inset white rectangle, contribute to a wider appearance for the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro.
Other new tidbits include the availability of Recaro bucket seats, and new alloy wheel designs. The “halo” LED headlight rings have been redesigned, and Camaro SS models get a new hood with a functional hood scoop that reportedly aids cooling and reduces drag. Ultimately, the changes are pretty minor and might be missed by the casual observer.
There are no powertrain updates for the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro. Engine choices remain a 323-hp, 3.6-liter V-6; a 400/426-hp, 6.2-liter V-8; and the 580-hp, supercharged 6.2-liter V-8. And of course, the new Camaro Z/28 will feature a 500-hp 7.0-liter V-8 engine.
