2019 Chevrolet Camaro SS - Driven - gallery
back to article
The Camaro design still rocks.
The facelifted front facia waters down the original design, but the SS trim still brings the goods.
One of the few soft convertible car looking good with the top up.
The Camaro design secret: the chop top aka ultra low windows.
Modest rear wing and transparent tail lights keep the design fresh.
Big, real, dual exhausts are still here.
The high waist line of the Camaro still works its magic.
A complex convertible mechanism allows the rear glass to be extremely slanted, and good looking.
The new headlights are cool but a little too thin.
The black bumper insert from the 2019 facelift was not well received by Camaro fans.
The Euro style taillights look great.
Even thought some may think they look a little too reminiscent of the 1990's.
High waiste, slanted windshield.
That's how and why the Camaro looks so good.
Top up, the slanted rear glass really works magic.
Big wheels also help. Thank you SS trim!
Inside the Camaro top down
In the back of the Camaro top down, thing start to get crowded.
It is still surprisingly easy to get in and out for adults.
Behind the wheel, the magic happens.
The sport car feeling is coming to you.
The whole interior screams 'Camaro baby!'
Gone are the early days of cheap plastic, this is the new face of American interior.
The steering wheel is thick and leather wrapped.
Dash design is clear and sporty.
This feels special, and fitted for a Camaro. LCD is crisp.
The engine start button could have been more fun, bit at least it is different.
And the big square is easy to push.
Gear change pedals behind the steering.
The transmission is fast, and rewarding.
The Infotainment is fast and the display is high quality.
Weirdly slanted downward, to eliiminate glare I guess.
Automatic would not be my first choice, but the fun factor remains.
Stills offers a good fun / convenience compromise.
The big V8 is what makes this car SPECIAL!
Drive fast or slow, this is FUN!
Here with the separator in place.
The separator need to be in position is required in order to lower the soft top.
With the separator flat on the trunk floor there is quite a bit of storage space.
The rear tonneau cover has a two bump design.
Nothing is left to chance. nice.
The hood vents add that special muscle vibe.
The Camaro is a bold muscle car and its nose is something to remember.
Camaro profile is very aggressive.
The facelift looks at its best on this profile shot.
Upclose on the headlghts, they feel premium.
LED stripe, complex lens, on part with the industry.
These bumper scoop add some sharpness to the design.
The see trough bowtie, first seen on the Z28 is back on our SS trim.
A cool details for the Z28 amateurs.
The trunk has always been the low point on the camaro.
The biggest problem being the small trunk opening.
A close up on the tail lights.
Another surprisingly premium assembly on the Camaro, well done!
Head up display works well.
But keep in mind the higher price of windshield replacement when you opt for a HUD.
you can stop the process at any time bu releasing the button.
In this position you could actually store items that would not fit throught the regular trunk opening..
Convertible mechanism and complex but easy to access.
Let's look at the convertible top in action.
It is quite complex, but fast, silent, and works under 25mph speed.
You can see the insulation of the cabin has not been neglected.
The windshield frame is very flat and clean.
No risk of getting yoru hands dirty like in the old days.
A sticker reminds you not to rest your hand on the frame while bringing the top down.
an easy mistake as the top operation button is located above the rear view mirror...
The low profile rear wing, add a welcome bump to the Camaro rear bum.
I think almost all rear wing look lame, but that one really felt cool.
The exhaust note is unbelievably good! MUST BUY THE V8!
Blip, Bang, Bing, Roar!
The door panels are very busy.
Complex look far from boring, but it takes a while to know where to grab the handle.
Mainstream buttons but the feel is good.
quriky feature here, to lower the windows you have to make sure you have selected which of the front or rear windows you want to control.
The control buttons are one of my favorites.
Large button with a good plastic feel.
The lower dash vents and buttons are very well designed.
And again unexpectedly premium.
The different drive mode update many variables.
steering feel is very different in each mode. My favorite, track mode of course.
Under the armest, a small storage.
VERY small storage. with USB.
A good angle showing the complex interior panel design and door trims.
The modern camaro offers plenty of standout design features.
I hated the seat belt anchor point... feel like bread crumb collector.
On the white paint, the black vents stand out in a good way.
The hood vents are 100% functional
Who knew this was still legal in 2019!
No rain guard but the hole align right in front of the engine.
Let's hope the engineer did their homework on that one.
Tower strut feel solid, and the cross brace well designed.
The fuse box container show how much attention to details Chevy poured in the Camaro.
The modern Camaro is a proud heritage car.
It fits in the American landscape like a good old vintage pickup truck.
The Camaro just looks awesome.
I just could not leave it parked for too long...Must drive!
At night, the interior ambience is well coordinated.
dash, infotainment and LED strip keep it fun.
