Above is the original 2019 facelift on a Camaro SS, featuring the gaping black grille and black cross-member holding a ‘floating’ bow-tie, dubbed a flowtie. At the top of this page the same picture has been altered (by Chevrolet) to show how the “concept” face will look on the car that’s due to be shown off at SEMA, starting 30 October.
The bow-tie has been returned to the upper grille and the cross-member has been painted body color to create a much smaller and neater two-part grille look. Rumor suggests that this new face will be grafted onto the production SS as soon as physically possible. Sales results will then be gauged to see if it works, at which point it could reach the rest of the Camaro range.
