The 2019 Camaro’s updated designs are not only striking but also help to improve performance. For instance, the grille details along with the hood and fascia vents were designed for optimised airflow, either to cool components or help minimise drag/lift. Camaro designers follow the mantra that all elements must not only be beautiful, but also enhance performance.
Design highlights include new front-end styling with distinct differences between LS/LT, RS and SS, including the fascia, grille, LED dual-element headlamps and reshaped hood (ZL1 retains its airflow-optimised front-end styling).
The new Camaro Turbo 1LE joins the V6 1LE, SS 1LE and ZL1 1LE to round out Camaro’s lineup of 1LE track stars. Leveraging the impressive performance and ideal weight distribution enabled by Camaro’s 2-litre turbocharged engine with 275hp and 400Nm, the Turbo 1LE comes exclusively with a 6-speed manual transmission and a tailored chassis package derived from the V6 1LE to offer track-capable performance.
Other technical highlights include nearly 50:50 weight balance, larger-diameter front and rear stabiliser bars, specifically tuned dampers, stiffer rear-cradle bushings, split front/rear tyre sizes, Brembo brake package, a sueded flat-bottom steering wheel and shift knob, optional Recaro seats and a Driver Mode Selector with Competition Mode that encompasses performance instrument readouts, launch control, shift lights and more.
The 2019 Camaro also offers Chevrolet’s next-generation Infotainment 3 with all-new systems that provide a more personalised experience and a more intuitive interface. They’re the most advanced infotainment systems ever from Chevrolet, with functionality that mimics the latest smartphones and tablets, and cloud connection designed to enhance personalisation, navigation, voice recognition, apps and more. They even allow vehicle software updates to be automatically uploaded over the air.
The standard system features a 7-inch colour touchscreen. An 8-inch touchscreen running Infotainment 3 is available, including one with satellite navigation.
