2015 Camaro redesign?

I was looking when orders for the 2015 Camaro start on http://www.edmunds.com/model-year-changes/2015/ and i noticed it says it will be redesigned. Keeping in mind this is a prediction makes me wonder what could change.

Any guesses?

Highly doubt they would redesign the hood nose and rear end for a one year run would think 2016 to 2018 redesign. could be refresh in the drive train maybe LT1 engine with the 8 speed auto option. Maybe nothing.

I'm sure the LT1 will make it's way into them very soon. Hopefully that LT4 will one day too.

Yeah I would think it would make sense from a Production sense why Make (3 ) 6.2 L engines. They may detune it a bit to 430-450 to keep Corvette buyers happy. even though the weight would hold it back enough to keep it half a second behind the vette.

2016 seems like a safe bet, but I'm not ready to say that Edmunds is wrong. Car manufacturers usually keep cars to a 5 year cycle, the first three years the car remains about the same. The 4th year usually see an MCE or a Mid-Cycle Enhancement to keep things fresh. As it relates to the Camaro, Chevy did the refresh late. Maybe this was all due to backlogs related to the bankruptcy?

The 5th gens are 10, 11, 12, 13 then the redesigned front and rear fascia for 2014. Also the Camaro was released in the Spring of 2009 as a '10. So the Camaro is already 6 model years old, by the calender year. If Chevy followed the industry standard we'd see a new Camaro in 2015. The only problem is they have already broke from that tradition.

Lastly, if we were going to see an all new Camaro by 2015, which are traditionally released in the fall, wouldn't there have been mule sightings by now? After the mules and the testing there are the inevitable car show showings.

My guess is an all new Camaro, that will be model year 2016 in the Spring of 2015.

I'm guessing 2016 Camaro, with a summer or fall 2015 release or even early 2016 release as a 2016 or 17 model.

2015 Camaro redesign?

We haven't even seen spy shots. This car is coming out in 2016 on time to give GM plenty of time to retool and fine tune the best possible Camaro to start on Alpha. That's my best guess.

6th Gen in 2015 as a 2016 model is what I understood.

Sad.
Chevy needs to put the Gen5 to rest and release the world class Alpha Camaro ASAP.
The Alpha Camaro is going to be a game changer.

But, I would never buy a Gen5 over the redesigned 2015 Mustang with IRS and a much lower curb weight.......
and I HATE F*rd with a passion.

We still don't know what that car weighs...might not be any lighter than the current Mustang.

If you can get a brand new car designed, engineered, validated, certified, and produced in less than 12 months, be my guest and try.

The redesign will not be in '15 or else we would be previewing it right now along with Mustang. My wager is that the 5th gen will run its course in '15, maybe as an abbreviated production year, and we will see the 6th gen Camaro design in the auto shows and sneak previews. Chevy may also start taking orders on the 6th gen by April or May of '15 for MY 2016; At least as how I see it.

Look at the release of the 2015 ATS Coupe as a harbinger of the 2016 Camaro. GM will want to shake out the Coupe's build in the factory. Smooth out wrinkles in production.
Economies of scale could indicate the Camaro will be right on its heels.

2015 Mustang wheelbase is 107.1", 3500 lbs. Adding the IRS cancelled all weight loss elsewhere. Nearly a net zero pounds change from the 2014. Wheelbase did not change.
Platform is fundamentally unchanged. Contrary to Ford intentional disinformation, for 2005, the Mustang was NOT based on the DEW/LS/Thunderbird/Jaguar platform and was designed from scratch. There was not enough structural support for the larger V8 blocks, superchargers, et al. Which is why you never saw a 4.6 liter in an LS Lincoln. The investment in the Mustang platform still needs to be milked. GM has known this for some time. So take that as a target to meet or BEAT.

The pictures of the back seat of the ATS Coupe remind me of my 2006 Mustang GT.
The ATS wheelbase is 109.3...size often is an indicator of weight. Do not expect the Camaro to be larger than that. The Camaro needs to lose 250 lbs just to break even with the Mustang as it was/is an excellent design. The ATS Coupe is the direction...and a VERY good one for Camaro.
The only concern would be the space available for the larger motors. BUT...I've seen V-8s in VEGAs and Monzas. (Not Las Vegas).
Current CTS Coupe is 500lbs over a reasonable target weight...and it is being carried over (so I hear)...it is already 250 over the average Camaro. There is a next-gen CTS SEDAN is coming, but the ATS-Camaro will come first. (if I read everything right.)

Soooooo.....the ATS Coupe is a VERY CONSERVATIVE car to not scare customers away, and the Camaro will likely be "Extroverted". Let us hope and pray it doesn't have the Mustang's new nose, cheese-slicer-carved back end, and 7 lines just to define the hood.
Busy and ugly we don't want. Elegant, Definitive, Recognizable, Extroverted should be the goals.

Mustang sales went up in January after people saw the busy-ugly new one.
