The base 1LT and V6 are cheaper than last year's models.
The facelifted 2019 Chevrolet Camaro has certainly been controversial thanks to its polarizing styling. We also recently learned that some trims are less efficient than the outgoing model. It's not all bad news, however, because the 2019 Camaro will be cheaper than last year's model.
Autoblog has discovered the online configurator for the updated Camaro has gone live. There are no photos of all the different options yet, but the pricing is plain to see. At the bottom of the range, the turbocharged four-cylinder 2019 Chevrolet Camaro 1LT has an MSRP of $26,495, including the $995 destination. That makes it $405 cheaper than last year's base model, the Camaro 1LS.
Opting for the Convertible version adds another $6,000, but it's still $405 less than the 2018 Camaro Convertible 1LS. Oddly, the 1LS trim is still listed, but the configurator says "See dealer for pricing" when selecting this option. Autoblog speculates the 1LS could be a special-order trim for fleets since there's only one wheel design available and it can't be equipped with an automatic.
New to this year's range is the 2019 Camaro Turbo 1LE, which isn't listed in the configurator but Chevrolet has announced it starts at $30,995. The 2019 Camaro V6 also now starts at $27,990, which is $405 less than the 2018 version. Adding the 1LE package adds $4,500 to the price, and selecting a convertible adds $6,000.
There are no price reductions for the V8-powered Camaro SS, however. Like last year's model, the base-level 1SS starts at $37,995. The 1LE package still costs $7,000, while the convertible costs an extra $6,000. The 650-hp Camaro ZL1, on the other hand, is more expensive than last year's model commanding a price of $64,195 for the coupe, which is $400 more than the 2018 model. You can thank the increase in gas guzzler tax for that.
There are also several new colors available for the 2019 Camaro for no extra charge, including a new medium dark blue hue called Riverside Blue Metallic and Satin Steel Gray Metallic silver color. Replacing the Hyper Blue Metallic finish in the premium color options list is a bright orange color called Crush, which costs an extra $395. There are also some new stripe options called Spider Stripes and Stinger Stripe, as well as new wheel design options and accessories available.
