The 2019 Chevrolet Camaro sports a new face and more tech

RK Motors Apr 09 2018

Chevy will offer the same lineup of four, six, and eight-cylinder engines, but buyers can now get the 1LE performance package with the base 2.0-liter turbocharged four-banger, which makes 275 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. Previously available only on V6 and V8 models, the 1LE package adds upgraded suspension and tires, a Brembo brake package, driver-selectable Track and Competition modes, a suede flat-bottom steering wheel and shift knob, and available Recaro bucket seats.

The 6.2-liter V8 Camaro SS gets an optional 10-speed automatic transmission co-developed with Ford, and also offered in the rival Mustang. The SS also gets new launch control and line lock, which locks the front brakes to make burnouts easier. It’s a feature Ford has offered on the Mustang for several years now.

Chevy didn’t mention any other mechanical changes, so the SS’s V8 should still produce 455 hp and 455 lb-ft of torque. The Camaro is also available with a 3.6-liter V6, which should produce the same 355 hp and 284 lb-ft it did in the 2018 models. Chevy didn’t mention any changes to the high-performance Camaro ZL1, either. The ZL1 currently sports a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 rated at 650 hp and 650 lb-ft.

The 2019 Chevrolet Camaro goes on sale later this year. Pricing will be announced closer to launch.
