2014 Chevrolet Camaro Gets Fresh Styling and Functional Updates

4/3/2013
Chevy's big news at the 2013 New York International Auto Show was the reintroduction of the 2014 Camaro Z/28, but the high-performance, track-ready version of the 2014 Chevy Camaro was not the only news.

For 2014, the Camaro Coupe and Camaro Convertible lineups receive new front and rear styling designed to visually widen the car and shorten it in terms of height. The Camaro's front end is redesigned with a thinner upper grille, slimmer headlights (with halo ring running lights for models with the optional RS package), and a larger lower air intake flanked by available projector-style fog lights. The changes help improve engine cooling and reduce aerodynamic lift for greater high-speed stability, according to Chevrolet. Additionally, the Camaro SS gains a functional heat extractor punched into the top of the hood to reduce engine bay temperatures.

Around back, the 2014 Camaro is equipped with new rectangular LED taillights and a new bumper with a revised diffuser panel design. As with the changes to the front of the car, the new rear styling visually widens the Camaro while reducing its height and improving high-speed stability, Chevy says. A new rear spoiler design is available, along with redesigned aluminum wheel selections.

Perhaps because the 2013 Camaro received a new steering wheel, frameless rearview mirror, new Chevrolet MyLink touch-screen display, and a new Mojave-colored leather option, the 2014 Camaro's interior is essentially the same as last year. The only announced update is the availability of optional Recaro front sport seats.

Engine selections mirror the current Camaro, too. A direct-injection, 3.6-liter V-6 is standard for the Camaro LS and LT models, producing 323 horsepower. The 2014 Camaro SS still has a 6.2-liter V-8 rated to deliver between 400 horsepower and 426 horsepower, depending on transmission choice, and the SS is still offered with the 1LE Performance package that made big news in 2013. The Camaro ZL1 also continues, more powerful than the 2014 Camaro Z/28 thanks to its supercharged 6.2-liter V-8, which cranks 580 horsepower to the rear wheels.

Chevy says the revamped Camaro lineup will be available "later in 2013."
