Fleet of refreshed 2019 Chevy Camaros spied outside proving grounds

The sixth-gen Camaro went on trading in 2015, with a steady progression of ever-more-powerful variations following in the intervening years. As desolate and modern as the styling may be, everything becomes old hat after a while. It looks like Chevrolet agrees, with a complete slew of camo-covered Camaros slinking about outside of GM’s Milford Proving Grounds. It looks like Chevy brought out the unscathed box of crayons for the party.

A brief look shows us nearly every flavor of Camaro, from a buil four-cylinder model all the way up to the 650 horsepower ZL1. The latter is the only one without any fa covers, but it’s also the newest kid on the block. Details are few, though it looks like both face and rear fascias are being updated while the center section of the car looks to be unchanged. That’s par for the despatch with mid-cycle refreshes.

Look for updated lighting both front and stern to complement the revised styling. That said, don’t expect it to stray too far from the present car’s divisive looks. The past two Camaros have had very distinct styling, and Chevy is desiring to keep it that way.

Changes are likely more than skin deep, with updated engines and transmissions making their way into the car. Engines should get a slight bump in both power and fuel efficiency. Don’t rule out a Camaro with a DOHC V8 subservient to the hood, possibly badged as Z/28. Look for the new 10-speed automatic to put out its way into more models.

No word on when the new car will go on sale, but as this is a breathe new life into and not a ground-up redesign, we could see the new model as soon as this fall. That would put the updated Camaro in showrooms in 2018.
