Not all facelifts are successful. Take, for example, the snout of the updated 2019 Chevrolet Camaro SS, which places its bow-tie badge on the crossbar that bisects the upper- and lower-grille openings. The awkward badge location has not gone unnoticed, and Chevrolet is reportedly working on a fix for the V8-powered pony car.
Chevy is allegedly previewing the new look with its Speciality Equipment Market Association show-bound Shock green Camaro SS. While the tennis-ball hue of the show car may be its most attention-grabbing feature, keen eyes will notice the car's revised front fascia, which places the Chevy badge in the upper grille. Additionally, the Shock green show car features a body-colour grille crossbar as opposed to the black piece found on the production 2019 Camaro SS.
Although these changes are seemingly small, the front-end of the Shock green Camaro show car is considerably prettier than that of its mass-produced counterpart. A spokesperson for Chevrolet was unable to confirm if the front-end of the SEMA is bound for production.
Nevertheless, we anticipate the Shock green Camaro’s nose will find its way to the 2020 Camaro SS. Expect the new front end to shelter the same 455-bhp 6.2-litre V8 engine featured in today's car. Regardless of Chevy's intentions, we'd advise the bow-tie brand to fast-track its SEMA car's altered fascia into production.
