Chevrolet still has prototypes of the facelifted variant of its popular Camaro SS out on the road, and one of them, has been filmed up close.
As the 2019 Camaro SS is purely a facelifted model, it won’t feature a plethora of significant mechanical modifications over the outgoing model. Consequently, the naturally-aspirated 6.2-liter V8 engine should continue to spin out 455 hp and 455 lb-ft of torque.
What’s new, however, will be the ten-speed automatic transmission found elsewhere within the General Motors family and in the latest Ford F-150 Raptor and Ford Mustang GT.
Great performance, odd looks
Alterations don’t stop here. Chevrolet will also incorporate a line-lock feature into the muscle car to ensure customers can have just as much fun as they can in the sixth-gen Mustang.
Distinguishing the 2019 Camaro SS from lesser Camaro models will be enlarged front air intakes, a pronounced splitter, and a large trunklid lip spoiler. All in all, the Camaro SS could be a nice middle ground between lesser models and the all-conquering 650 hp, 650 lb-ft ZL1.
Ever since premiering, the facelifted Camaro has fiercely split opinions. Perhaps the most significant change has been the implementation of a large grille and a pair of reshaped headlights and LED daytime running lights.
With a number of small but aggressive upgrades, the Camaro SS is all but assured to be the best looking model in the Camaro family.
