Only a select few will get their hands on a high-performance COPO Camaro, but everyone will be able to enjoy a refreshed 2014 model. Chevy will show the updated Camaro at the 2013 New York Auto Show later this month.
The 2014 Camaro won’t be fully redesigned, but it will boast a few updates that should keep it fresh until a completely new model arrives. However, Chevy isn’t saying what those updates will be, only hinting at enhancements to the car’s “design and performance attributes.”
Some small changes to the styling seem likely although, but with its blend of retro and modern cues, the Camaro is already among the best looking of the neo-musclecars. It’s unlikely that the changes will be significant enough to fix the car’s bunker-like windows, though.
Engine choices will probably remain the same. That means a 3.6-liter V6 with 323 horsepower and 278 pound-feet of torque in base models, a 6.2-liter V8 with 400 or 426 hp and 410 or 420 lb-ft in SS models, and a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 with 580 hp and 556 lb-ft in the ZL1.
The 2013 Camaro also offers Chevy’s MyLink infotainment system, which includes expected features like smartphone integration, Bluetooth, and Pandora and Stitcher connectivity.
The Camaro has been on sale since 2009, but Chevy has been steadily updating it over the years. The original deep-dish steering wheel was replaced by the Volt’s tiller in 2011, and a new center stack was added last year.
Like the rival Ford Mustang, Chevy has also added a few models to the Camaro lineup, including the range-topping ZL1 and the midrange SS 1LE.
We’ll learn more about the 2014 Camaro at the New York Auto Show, which begins March 27.
