Shockingly yellow!

The sixth-generation Chevrolet Camaro was just updated for the 2019 model year, now sporting a brand-new face that makes it more aggressive than ever. As it is always the case, Chevy began rolling out various upgrades and accessories for its popular coupe. With the 2018 SEMA Show just around the corner, Chevrolet created the Camaro Shock, an SS-based pony car that showcases a new exterior color and various accessories and concept parts.

Finished in Shock Yellow, hence the Camaro Shock name, this production-ready concept is packed with accessories and performance parts created by the same designers and engineers responsible for the Camaro itself, for seamless integration. While some are already available, other parts will hit the market later this year and in 2019. As usual, you can shop online for the parts on Chevrolet’s website and choose to have them delivered either at home or at a dealer delivery. You can also choose to install them yourself or have them fitted by professionals at a Chevy dealership. Let’s see what’s new.

Much like most cars Chevy usually brings to Sema, the Camaro Shock is pretty much a production model with some add-ons. Most of them enhance the coupe’s looks, but some also improve aerodynamics. Chevy didn’t provide any info outside the fact that the Shock is equipped with "second-generation ground effects," but we can spot the upgrades in the front splitter, side skirts, rear wing spoiler, and the diffuser. Nothing too fancy to talk about, but they should help make the Camaro SS a tad quicker when paired with other upgrades.

Moving onto the visuals, the new Shock Yellow color has the biggest impact.

A tribute to the high-impact colors of the late 1960s and 1970s, the bright yellow makes the Camaro stand out like a proper muscle car.

The subtle green tint in the paint makes it unique.

Shock Yellow joins four new colors in the Camaro palette, including Crush, Riverside Blue Metallic, Shadow Grey Metallic, and Satin Steel Grey Metallic.

Chevy used black elements to make the yellow paint stand out even more. The black wing spoiler isn’t something to write home about, but the concept graphics on the hood are definitely cool.

Placed on each side of the center bulge, they help make the SS' front fascia seem more aggressive.

Chevy also added a concept bowtie emblem on the upper grille and a fuel cap with exposed carbon-fiber insert.

The "concept" remains true to the standard Camaro SS inside the cabin, save for the Recaro performance seats. This is a cool addition to any car, but it’s a shame that Chevy didn’t put more effort into making the interior unique.

Under the shell, the Camaro Shock sports a cold-air induction upgrade kit that’s legal in all 50 states, while the front rims hide Brembo six-piston brakes.

The suspension was also upgraded with components from Camaro 1LE. The package includes revised dampers and stabilizer bars among others.

Based on the SS model, the Camaro Shock features the same 6.2-liter V-8 engine as the standard coupe. Although there are no upgrades whatsoever, it still packs quite a punch at 455 horsepower and 455 pound-feet of torque. When paired with the new 10-speed automatic transmission, the Camaro SS needs only four seconds to hit 60 mph from a standing start. It also runs the quarter-mile in an impressive 12.3 seconds at 116 mph. It’s anything but slow!

Chevrolet today previewed a new Shock yellow exterior color for the 2019 Camaro. It will be available in early 2019.

The color made its debut on a 2019 Camaro SS show car that will be on display at the SEMA Show Oct. 30-Nov. 2 in Las Vegas, where it will be shown with new accessories and performance parts available from Chevrolet dealers.

“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 expanded portfolio of accessories and performance parts includes second-generation ground effects, a black wing spoiler, fuel door with exposed carbon-fiber insert, black Camaro fender badges, 50-state-legal cold-air induction kits, RECARO® performance seats, Brembo® six-piston front brake upgrade kit and 1LE suspension components.*

The Chevrolet accessories and performance parts were designed by the same designers and engineers responsible for the Camaro itself, for seamless design and performance integration. The accessories and parts were also validated to the same rigorous standards as the factory-installed components, and their installation does not void the new-vehicle limited warranty.

Customers can shop online for the parts at and choose home or dealer delivery, as well as select dealer installation.

The Camaro SS Shock show vehicle also features concept front-end styling that includes a relocated bowtie emblem and concept hood/fender graphics. It will be joined in the Chevrolet SEMA display by a personalized Camaro LT convertible, shown in new Satin Steel Grey Metallic and featuring concept red accents and additional accessories.

Camaro for 2019

New front-end styling on LS, LT and SS models, including the fascia, grille, dual-element headlamps, hood and new LED signature lighting, puts a new face on the 2019 Camaro. The ZL1 model retains its airflow optimized front-end styling, while the RS package also receives unique headlamps and lighting signature.

At the rear, new LED taillamps are incorporated in a more sculptured execution of Chevrolet’s signature dual-element design. Red lenses are featured on LS and LT, with RS, SS and ZL1 featuring dark-tinted neutral-density (clear) lenses.

Additional highlights include:

An all-new Turbo 1LE model that rounds out Camaro’s performance lineup.
A new 10-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission offered on Camaro SS, featuring launch control and line lock.
