You guys asked for it, now it looks like you’re getting it.

The 2019 Chevrolet Camaro is getting a new nose, among other things. One of the most talked about and controversial styling dilemmas for General Motors has been the front end of the early 2019 Chevrolet Camaro. That appears to be changing.

Chevrolet just announced that the 2019 Chevrolet Camaro SS will debut this new front end at the 2019 SEMA show in Las Vegas along with their new Shock yellow show color.

“There’s a fresh look for the 2019 Camaro, which is restyled, reinvigorated and offers more choices and new technologies,” said Steve Majoros, director of Chevrolet Car and Crossover Marketing. “It’s the perfect canvas for personalization, and the new Shock color and available accessories demonstrate only some of the possibilities customers have to make the Camaro entirely theirs.”

The new front and rear styling will make its way on to the LS and LT models as well. There will be new “dual-element” headlights and LED “signature” lighting. This addresses one of the largest complaints about the 2018 Chevrolet Camaro’s styling. In addition, Chevrolet will revise the grille, fascia and hood. The ZL1 will not get the updated design as well. GM says it keeps its “airflow optimized front-end styling.” The RS package will received the updated headlight design.

Rear (taillight) design is now LED throughout. However, there’s a slight difference between trim levels. The LS and LT have red taillights, while the RS, SS and ZL1 will have dark tinted clear lenses Chevrolet calls “natural-density.”

Smart move?

Time will tell if the rushed restyling satisfies critics. Chevrolet says they will have several vehicles on display at the 2018 SEMA show including many classic vehicles.

Chevrolet spent little time putting together a styling update for the Chevrolet Camaro. That’s because complaints were numerous, as the comments in our 2019 Camaro Turbo 1LE video made clear.
