...without argument, an interview was conducted with Fitz as I believe almost a year or so ago where this topic point was discussed in question format about the next Gen, it was stated it would be evolutionary, rather than evolutionary...it's reserachable....

Over all most people love the new Vette. We weren't crazy about the changes they made to the 2014 Camaro but the more I see it the more I like it and even though some of us would have liked the Z/28 be a little more user friendly, it's an incredible car. The people at Chevy are doing some great things and are a very talented group. Give them a chance, I'm sure in the long run we will like it.

Sounds sorta comparable to the 1st gen. The 69 has all new sheetmetal, but some people still get them confused with the 67/68 because the overall shape is similar.

Looking forward to the new design! Ill get one if it comes in Laguna Blue.

Pretty cool to finally see more magazine information (more like speculation) on the next gen Camaro. I love this stuff lol.

I wouldn't put a ton of stock into this though...its hard to say right now what might happen, but it all sounds reasonable to me.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again, but I pray that Chevy keeps the "muscle" in this muscle car. Don't go soft on us like Ford did with the Mustang. Make the hood look muscular, keep the shoulders in the rear, and give it an attractive/aggressive front fascia. Give us another car that looks like nothing else on the road....not a sporty version of your family car (ahem...Fusion Mustang)

I have no doubt the car will be lighter and a blast to drive.

I have to admit...I'm almost afraid I'm going to like the car too much and then I'll have to find a way to convince the wife I need one of these lol. If I hate it, then I can just keep my current car which I love lol.

Hopefully they don't screw it up like Ford did with the Mustang, I'm not a fan of the new design. It looks too much like a Fusion.

I'm willing to bet the Camaro SS is gonna get the new LT1 engine. It's very efficient and powerful. I also bet GM is gonna make an LT2 or something like that to put into the C7 Vette which would give it a bit of a power bump in 2016. Similarly to what they did with the C6 going from the LS2 to the LS3. That should keep the Camaro from running to closely with the C7

Agreed. The 5th Gen was a tad disappointing how big it was when I first saw it.

I hope its more revolutionary with past Camaro cues. Let the great 5th gen design stay unsullied in our minds.

If you think about it, the transformers 4 Camaro looks like the final product of the 6th gen, IN THE SENSE THAT, they slow are making us adapt to the modifications done in the '14+.


They changed the tail lights and the front fascia to make it slimmer looking.


We hated it, but most of us got over it.


Next... they just change the front end, maybe sides a bit and keep the new tail lights.


In other words:

STEP 1: Take 10-13 Camaro, change tail lights and slim the front fascia
STEP 2: Minor modifications to tail lights and drastic front end change + minor body modifications
STEP 3: 6th Gen









I really hope that I'm wrong, but we wont find out till we see it

I happen to like the transformers 4 edition camaro and I expect the 6th gen to look similar to it with minor changes just as we did with the 5th gen.

I don't necessarily expect the next gen Camaro to look like the TF4 Camaro, but that said I don't hate the TF4 Camaro. I hate the big huge mouth on the front, but thats an easy fix.

I actually like the rear on the TF4 Camaro. Its similar to the 2014 rear, but just done better in my opinion. Besides the low/rear scoop, the side is basically the same.

I could see them altering/slimming up the Camaro a bit more from the TF4 version to production and running with it.

Do I think thats what they will do? No. I have no clue.

The front end will def be more aerodynamic. So the headlights on that TF4 should be close to what will be available. Im not digging the wide open mouth on the lower facia either. IMO the top portion should be larger more centrical for lack of a beter word. Im sure it'll be a nice product evolutionized, but I dont think it'll look as good as a 5ht gen imo. Defintely faster and lighter. Im sure if thats what you want, then you'll love it. But if youre going to get one, I wouldnt necessarily say a 6th gen is "better" than a 5th gen...

I have no doubt that the overall theme of the 6th Gen will be an evolution of the 5th Gen which was a modern retro inspired version of the 1st Gen. That said the change from modified Zeta to Alpha alone should make the car look different not to mention if GM does any tightening of the cars dimensions to save weight. I don't think anyone with basic car knowledge will confuse a 5th or 6th Gen Camaro.

I almost hope they don't make it so different and striking that I start looking sideways at my poor ol' 10 SS. I still love that car and have quite a few $$ into the mods on it.

I don't think the Transformers 4 Camaro will be the 6th gen. The 5th gen was in Transformers because the concept was revealed a year before it came out. People already knew what it looked like.

I love the TF4 Camaro and I will gladly put off buying a 2014-15 in order to purchase a similar looking car. Time to start saving my pennies so I can go with the V8.

Heresy...
I saw the 2015 at the autoshow this year, and it was downright offensive to the eye.
And I am not stating this because I'm biased, as I actually like the look of current mustangs.

Let's face it. The descriptions of 'not drastically different' and 'looks like a worked-over current-model Camaro' ARE applicable to the Transformers car.

Is it going to look exactly like that? Of course not. But could it look just enough like it to give a basic idea of the new car to the typical movie viewer? Maybe, just maybe.

I actually don't mind the appearance of the Transformers car, so this wouldn't be deal-killer for me if it happens.
That T4 Camaro is hideous, it's like seeing a really cute girl one minute and then you see her without make up and realize geez she's not as cute as I thought.

So wouldn't buy a 6th Gen if it looked like that. T4 is going to be huge, GM wouldn't put a random Camaro in there for no reason. I bet that's it.

Edmunds: 2016 Camaro styling to be evolutionary, not revolutionary

They had the original concept in the first Transformers. It didn't change much. I'm sure it's going to be a similar thing with the one in T4. I've been told by family that the concept looks amazing in person
