The Camaro has been a mainstay in the Chevrolet lineup for decades, since it was first introduced in 1966 for the 1967 model year. It disappeared for eight years between 2002 and 2010 after the line’s 35th anniversary, but now the sports car is more popular than ever. The 2019 Camaro model is changing things up with a shocking new color and more options than the average Camaro lover will know what to do with.
A New Color Shock
There’s a lot that’s new about the 2019 Camaro, but the most shocking might be the new color option — Shock — a neon yellow that will make it hard to miss on the road. The new Shock color will be featured at this year’s Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas.
This color was specifically created for the coupe version of the 2019 Camaro, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be available in a sedan or convertible option in the future. The new LT Convertible was featured in another fresh color — Satin Steel Grey Metallic — and was accented with red accessories.
The paint color isn’t the only thing that’s getting a bit of a change in this new model. The front end has been restyled by moving the Chevy emblem from the bumper beam to a more prominent place on the upper grille. That bumper beam isn’t black anymore, either — Chevy opted to paint it the same color as the rest of the body to bring the look together.
The whole front end has been slightly redesigned to include some new dual-element headlamps and LED lighting.
All the Accessories
New Camaro owners will have a ton of new accessories to choose from for their new model. For the aesthetic-minded owner, Recaro seats, a black rear wing and matching Camaro badges are all available. You can even opt to replace your fuel door with a carbon fiber alternative.
For the performance side of things, new owners can opt for everything from suspension upgrades pulled from the 1LE models to cold air intakes and Brembo six-piston brake upgrade kits. This model will also have an upgraded infotainment system, a new turbo engine, new wheels and a 10-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission for the smoothest ride possible.
These accessories won’t look like aftermarket bolt-ons, though. They are being designed by the same engineers who created the Camaro itself, so they will fit seamlessly into the car as though they were part of it all along.
This isn’t the first redesign the Camaro has gotten in its long life, but it’s probably the one we’re most excited about. The 2019 Camaro started its production run in August, so if you want to get your hands on one, now is the time. It’s actually a little less expensive than the 2018 version, starting at $25,995, which is nearly $1,000 cheaper than last year. If a Camaro is the car you’ve been lusting after, there’s never been a better time to pick one up.
