Chevrolet has revealed its redesigned 2019 Camaro, adding a new turbocharged engine and some controversial new front-end styling. Designed to better differentiate the line-up, from the entry-level Camaro LS through to the 455 horsepower Camaro SS, the updated design comes with new cabin and active safety tech, among other things.
The new engine option is Chevy’s 2.0-liter Turbo 1LE turbocharged four-cylinder, and will be standard on the 2019 Camaro LS and LT. It’ll be offered with a six-speed manual gearbox exclusively, together with a custom chassis package that packs FE3 suspension with specifically tuned dampers and stiffer rear cradle bushings, Brembo brakes, and a new Track Mode. Chevrolet is promising near-50/50 weight balance from the coupe, which will pack 275 HP and 295 lb-ft. of torque. Inside, it’ll have a sueded flat-bottom steering wheel and shift knob as standard, while Recaro seats will be optional. The 3.6-liter V6 will be an upgrade option for the Camaro LS and LT.
