We’re excited to reveal the 2019 Chevrolet Camaro range! An upgrade to the 2SS model and the introduction to the range of the LT4-powered ZL1 super-car!

Re-engineered by HSV, the Camaro range represents muscle car mastery in its purest and most exhilarating form. Euphoric power, precision engineering, cutting-edge technology and a striking, iconic design combine to deliver a high-performance sports car range that pushes boundaries and gives new meaning to the word legendary.

From the first look, it’s clear the Chevrolet Camaro 2SS has been designed to build on the Camaro legend. The 2019 Camaro 2SS model features the following upgrades:
  • 6-speed manual transmission with Active Rev Matching and Launch Control.
  • 10-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission with Custom Launch Control, Line-Lock and Lift-Foot Gear Hold technology.
  • New front-end styling including front fascia, grille, dual element LED head-lamps, functional extractor-style hood and “flow-tie” open bow-tie grille emblem.
  • New rear fascia and LED tail-lamps.
  • New 5-spoke 20” alloy wheels.
  • Next generation Chevrolet Infotainment 3 system.
  • Rear Camera Mirror.
  • Head-up Display.
  • Forward Collision Alert.

The Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 is the pinnacle of Camaro performance thanks to its supercharged V8 making it the most powerful production Camaro ever built. We are thrilled to be re-engineering the ZL1 for Australia and New Zealand, with feature highlights including:
  • 6.2L LT4 supercharged V8 with Direct Injection and Variable Valve Timing
  • 6-speed manual transmission with Active Rev Matching and Launch Control functionality or a 10-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission with Custom Launch Control, Line-Lock and Lift-Foot Gear Hold technology.
  • Magnetic Ride Control dampers.
  • Electronically controlled Limited Slip Differential.
  • Brembo performance brakes with 6-piston monobloc front calipers and 390mm two-piece front rotors.
  • Bi-modal performance exhaust system.
  • 20” 10-split-spoke forged alloy wheel.
  • RECARO performance seats.
  • Sueded flat-bottom sports profile steering wheel and gear shifter.
  • Sport alloy pedals.

It's a nice thought but no doubt will come at a huge premium.

I've always liked both the new and old model Camaro's, but at first glance I'm not completely sold on the front end of the ZL1
First thing that comes to mind is a Lexus and how they have that gaping big hole in the middle of their front bumpers

News.com - "Priced from $159,990 in manual form (add another $2200 for the auto),"

"Normally priced from $62,000 in the US ($87,400 AUD)"

That is plus on roads too.

Agree. But the Mustang is ugly inside and out, has no room in the back seat, hard to see out of, and has legendary Yank build quality and finish.
The Camaro may qualify for that also.
And the novelty of a 2 door, 2 seater V8 'look at me' sports car than can accelerate quickly to 'hand in your licence' speeds must wear off soon.
Check out how many Mustangs are on Carsales second hand, and 'new' at inflated, optimistic prices.

I think the 2018 model Camaro is a better looking car.

More cars than I've got space to park!
~ The 2019 Camaro 2SS model features the following upgrades:
  • 6-speed manual transmission ~
Hmm... I'm struggling to understand how a 6 speed manual transmission is an "upgrade" from the 7 speed manual transmission offered with previous models??

With that sort of torque spread why do you need any more than 5 gears? 6 speeds are a pain in the arse with most when cruising round town just use 1st, 3rd and forth

don't you know more gears = better?

guess once electrics are around we won't have to care about that anymore.
