Chevrolet introduced the updated Camaro

No, not the Ford Mustang EcoBoost with the Performance Package, but the Ford Focus ST and RS, as well as the Honda Civic Type-R, Toyota 86, Subarus BRZ, WRX, and STI and the like.

Chevrolet has unveiled the refreshed 2019 Camaro line up and the range has one very nice new addition for the vehicle guys and gals out there that want something more track ready but without a big honkin' V8.

Unlike the last few midcycle upgrades, Chevrolet really stepped it up this time by giving the Camaro a major exterior upgrade. Chevrolet has also tweaked headlamps as well as the lower front bumper for a fresh new look.

The '19 Chevy Camaro Turbo 1LE was convincing on a short Gymkhana-like road circuit set up in a parking lot just outside Las Vegas Motor Speedway. StabiliTrak electronic stability control system is standard across the range.

In short, it handles like the smaller, lighter cars that are intended competitors, except, of course, that you're inside this cavernous, large coupe. The brake package and the 50/50 balanced weight make it the ideal roadster. The 1LE is only available with a six-speed manual. The turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine makes 275 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque, and the auto comes with the Brembo brake package. Plus, a higher redline would have invited more second-gear corners. The star of the show, however, is the new Camaro 1LE Turbo which adds another track ready option to the Camaro's repertoire of 1LE'd versions of the RS, SS, and ZL1.

The full '19 Camaro line benefits from the "new face" of Chevrolet. The bonnet is also new, with LED dual-element headlights, and new LED taillights and rear fascia for all models. That gets an even larger front grille design, with a "flowtie" open bowtie emblem and new air curtains which Chevy says improves the airflow. The capacity of the unit is 461 HP Now the engine works in conjunction with a 10-speed automatic transmission. Included in the package are sport-tuned suspension, Brembo brakes, summer tires wrapped around 20-inch wheels, a suede-lined flat-bottom steering wheel, available Recaro bucket seats, and the addition of new Track and Competition modes for the driving modes selector.

Especially the Camaro. The venerable Chevrolet line's LS, LT, RS, and SS models will have unique grilles, fascias and lighting signatures, along with new colours, wheels and dual taillight designs to distinguish one trim from another. A new paint color, Riverside Blue, celebrates the 1969 Penske Racing Mark Donohue Camaro. Chevrolet also improved safety of Camera as the new model get forward collision alert, lane keep assist and more. It wouldn't be a mid-cycle refresh without connectivity and information/entertainment upgrades.

New technology, like the new Chevy Infotainment 3 media system, is standard across the board.

Chevrolet's sixth-generation Camaro has just undergone a major mid-life update in the U.S., where it will have to do battle with the also recently upgraded Ford Mustang and Dodge Challenger.
