Chevrolet of Detroit’s General Motors Co. Tuesday announced the Shock yellow exterior color for the 2019 Camaro, as well as a trio of Chevrolet Performance’s newest crate engines. The Camaro and engines will be on display at the SEMA Show Oct. 30-Nov. 2 in Las Vegas.
Shock yellow will be available on the 2019 Camaro in early 2019 and is debuting on a 2019 Camaro SS show car. The car will also be shown with new accessories and performance parts available from Chevrolet dealers.
“There’s a fresh look for the 2019 Camaro, which is restyled, reinvigorated, and offers more choices and new technologies,” says Steve Majoros, director of car and crossover marketing for Chevrolet. “It’s the perfect canvas for personalization, and the new Shock color and available accessories demonstrate only some of the possibilities customers have to make the Camaro entirely theirs.”
The expanded portfolio of accessories and performance parts includes second-generation ground effects, a black wing spoiler, fuel door with exposed carbon-fiber insert, black Camaro fender badges, 50-state-legal-cold-air induction kits, RECARO performance seats, Brembo six-piston front brake upgrade kit, and 1LE suspension components.
Customers can shop for these parts at Chevrolet.com/accessories, choose home or dealer delivery, and select dealer installation.
The accessories and performance parts were designed by the same engineers responsible for the Camaro for seamless design and integration. They were also validated to the same standards as the factory-installed components. Their installation does not void new-vehicle limited warranty.
The 2019 Camaro also offers an all-new Turbo 1LE model and a new 10-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission offered on Camaro SS that features launch control and line lock.
The Camaro SS Shock show vehicle also features concept front-end styling that includes a relocated bowtie emblem and concept hood/fender graphics. The SEMA display will also include a personalized Camaro LT convertible in Satin Steel Grey Metallic that features concept red accents and additional accessories.
Chevrolet Performance’s newest crate engines will also be on display at the show in a trio of vintage vehicles, including a 1973 Chevelle Laguna with the LT5 6.2L supercharged crate engine, a 1967 C/10 with the ZZ6 EFI 5.7L V-8 crate engine, and a 1978 Silverado with the L96 6.0L V-8 crate engine.
The new engines add to a portfolio of nearly 50 small block, big block, LS, LSX, LT, Circle Track and COPO crate engines. The LT5 6.2L supercharged crate engine has 755 horsepower and 715 lb.-ft. of torque, while the ZZ6 EFI 5.7L V-8 crate engine has 420 horsepower.
“Chevrolet Performance’s expanding crate engine lineup offers something for every enthusiast and his or her dream project,” says Jim Campbell, vice president of performance vehicles and motorsports for GM U.S. “That choice is matched with the peace of mind that comes only from factory-engineered systems tested to the same standards as production vehicles for performance you can count on.”
Many Chevrolet Performance crate engines are offered as connect and cruise combinations and emissions-legal E-ROD systems. The connect and cruise combos match crate engines with transmissions and the necessary controllers, while the E-ROD systems include emissions equipment that make them eligible for installation in millions of 1995-and-earlier vehicles in California.
For 2019, the supercharged LT4 E-ROD joins the lineup of LS3 E-ROD, LSA E-ROD, and LT1 E-ROD systems.
