It's going to grow on people, I guarantee it. Just like the 5th gen owners claiming that they'd never upgrade to a 6th gen. It's going to happen, right Bandit?

Having seen thee cars up close in person I can tell you it won’t grow on people. The front end is too much of a departure from what we are accustomed to and doesn’t fit the car at all. The lines are horrible and it just simply doesn’t work.

Will some folks but it... of course but this is going to be a huge failure for camaro. Let’s see what sales look like this time next year. My guess is about 1/2 what we’re seeing today.

The article mentions the wheels as being the optional 56S black 20". I'm pretty sure they are 56V carbon flash 20" according to the options and pics in the playbook. They look like they have that twist in the spokes.

Front emblem placement looks... odd.

We’ll see how low the sales go before it manages to “grow” on people...hopefully there’s a 7th gen.

IMO, it seems like the refresh's front end looks are entirely dependant on the color. The darker colors mask the all black front and allow for it to blend more.

Still ugly. If I had to buy one, it'd be black because it would hide much of the ugliness, but overall the design is not good.



The front end is hideous, the rear end is grotesque, the hood vent looks generic as hell and the wheels look like someone at Honda approved them.

If it doesn't sell well and it's deemed that the styling is the cause, an "emergency refresh" wouldn't be out of the question. Recall this happened with the ~2013 Malibu and Honda Civic when those were not well received by the public. We will see.

It’s going to sell just fine.

All of these “grotesque” postings are funny and exactly the same happened at the time of the last refresh too.

Opinions are a wonderful thing, but that’s all they are - they are not facts.

Sales numbers are facts. Let’s see where we stand in a year.

They have one sale for certain. Mine.

I’m pretty sure the sales figures won’t end at just one

Congrats! Which trim level did you decide on?

The same thing happened when the gen6 came out. Ugly!

Congratulations on your decision to get a 19. What color, wheels, etc are you getting?
