I completely agree. People jump to conclusions far too quickly without seeing it for themselves. I was a bit on the fence at first, but seeing these in the wild pics just confirms my liking of it.

The 5th gen refresh just blows my mind. People were so against it, and I was my top designs that I like. Either way, people are going to hate something and like it, your just going to hear the negative comments far more for some reason. Happens with everything I feel. Oh well, I know what I like and, to me, that's all that matters.

Can't wait to see the LT and SS more on the wild.

Exactly. It's time for GM to go in a different direction.

Put me in the camp waiting to place an order! Too many positives to get stressed about bowtie placement or front fascia since most people are going to be seeing the rear fascia!

After seeing this comparison, the '16 looks dated already. I think i'll hold off for a while more and wait to see the '19 in person.

The overall look of the refresh isn't bad. The details are terrible.

The LED light piping around the headlights looks like a frying pan. Plus, its interrupted under the HID bulb. It just looks unfinished.

The placement of the bow tie make the fascia look droopy.

The heat extractor looks cheap, from what I've seen.

It's still a 6th gen, just a body refresh. And yes its functional.

I like the refresh overall and I really like the black one.

I feel the exact same way.

The 6th Gen departed from the traditional muscle car look that the 5th Gen revived from Gen 1 and 2.

I'm not saying that these cars are any less of a performer or don't have all of the same heritage as any other, but they just don't look the part to me if I use the car's original designs as points of reference.

For what it's worth, I'll never own a Camaro past 5th Gen (Z/28 is my halo car), but I like the '19+ refresh more than the '16-'18.

Still glad I have a 16, the refresh is NOT the look I'd want!!! It looks just OK in Black, But the Bumper and Flowtie look STUPID in the other Colors.

Agree, it make me happy I have my 17. It sucks when you buy a new car and 2-3 years later they come out with something that is so much better.

Itís a matter of what youíre accustom to seeing. After being away from my 13 ZL1 two years, when is see a gen5 it looks portly and the interior shockingly cheap and dated.
