Exclamation how long will the 2014 last ! ? HELP

hey guys I currently own a charger and want a loaded Camaro ss and have been waiting for the new model, so if this 2014 is still 5th generation with a facelift is it only going to be around for 2014 and 2015???

I am not impressed, my plans are to buy a car every 4-5 years and stay up to date this 2014 Camaro is pathetic imagine how many guys are going to do the front/rear bumper-grill-light swap on there 10-13s

main question is what's going on??? will there be a new one 2016 and this car will have a 2 year run? what's the point? if I don't hear any news by 2015 im getting the new mustang or challenger sorry Chevrolet I need answers !

cant believe I had to sign up here just to ask this I was getting so frustrated on google with the "amazing" 2014 news ....omg

I know he sounded like he meant it that way, but what I think he meant to say is -people taking their 2014's and making them look like 13's.

I like the 10-13s better im saying in a pathetic attempt for a refresh it would be very easy to swap and trust me over time lots of guys on the forums will have done it "in short they put no effort in the refresh"

the fact this refreshed car will only be around for 2014 and 2015 blows my mind...they should have stuck with what they had and made a new one 2015 as there will be

-2015 challenger and/or barracuda with 6.2 supercharged hellcat hemi
-2015 50th anniversary (complete new modern look) mustang
-2016 Camaro and 2016 charger that wont be a surprise since it will share engines with the challenger and cuda

I know some people don't like comparing these cars but face it all the magazines, car tv shows, youtube, websites all compare these cars, I think I might buy a cheap used 2010 2ss and just wait it out but im really disappointed with all of this, all of you loyal guys will also wait but they are going to lose a lot of sales waiting until 2016

Buy what you like. I like the 2014 so I am going to buy one. Who knows what the 2016 will bring. If I like it better than my 2014 maybe I will trade the 14 for one. But get what you like

Car companies will often do some kind of refresh to get buyers in. Otherwise the last 2 years of a model would have no sales. Ford did it in 93 and with the 03-04 Termi Cobra and Mach 1.

And you can't really compare the refresh to the Mustang or Charger. Mainly because the Mustang has had that same retro platform since 2005. I know they did a huge make-over but it's a dead look. The car is skinny as heck, has no body contours, the back was flat (up until 2010), the engines sucked (up until 2011), the rims were boring and skinny and not even staggered. Basically, they need an all new platform BAD. And the Charger is just as bad. It's too heavy, too expensive, sucks up too much gas, and is slow as heck. They did a revision on the body but that car needs a complete make-over just as bad as the Mustang. And it's been around for almost a decade now. So both of those cars are hurting.

The Camaro has only been out since 2010. It has the newest, freshest, and overall best look, performance, price, etc when all things are considered. It is still a baby compared to the Mustang and Charger. The Challenger is just a baby also but it needs to be rethought as well. Chevy is just trying to keep up by doing an update this soon. But I agree that they probably should have saved any changes for 2015. And they should have thought a little bit more about that grille and those taillights.

your getting a 2014 brand new then possibly trading in for a 2016? your tag says "hopefully"(?)"getting 2014" lol... you will lose almost 20k for a car that will last 24 months? im pretty sure they said theirs no engine difference or interior (besides the model above ss that's not needed for me)

im on a 50 grand budget for a car but dang you must be loaded to be doing stupid stuff like that you should have kept your 2010 !

I agree with chapel, but the mustang is fast as hell its more between the Camaro and mustang for the race to the top

dodge will just disappoint with the 6.2 supercharged hemi just like they disappointed us with the 6.4 replacing the 6.1, they are overall good cars though, even the guys who hate dodge love the classic amazing looks of the challenger

the media isn't comparing ss, r/t, gt ....

they are comparing srt8, Shelby gt 500 cobra whatevers? and zl1 z9999 cant keep up with the Camaro badging sorry lol
