Made official by the configuration page on the automaker’s U.S. website, pricing information for the 2019 Chevrolet Camaro doesn’t stop here. The 1LS is listed as “see dealer for pricing,” and then there’s the V6. With the six-cylinder engine, the newcomer starts at $27,990, making it $405 cheaper than the 2018 model.

The 1LE package adds $4,500 to the MSRP, which is a lot even for this type of vehicle. As for the SS, the 6.2-liter V8-powered trim level soldiers on at $37,995. Customers of the SS have to pony up $7,000 for the 1LE Track Package.

Regardless of engine option, the soft-top convertible comes with an upcharge of $6,000 compared to the fixed-head coupe. Last, but certainly not least, the Camaro ZL1 is $400 more than before because of the higher gas-guzzler tax, going at $64,195 for the 2019 model year.

Among the goodies listed in the configurator, points out that “there is a new medium dark blue hue called Riverside Blue Metallic and another silver color called Satin Steel Gray Metallic.” Hyper Blue Metallic is no longer available, but on the upside, Crush has been added as an optional extra at $395. A number of stripe options are also listed, including Spider Stripes and the Stinger Stripe.

Even though the 2019 facelift has a tendency to polarize opinion, the sixth-generation Camaro still rides on the GM Alpha vehicle architecture. The platform is what makes the ‘Maro one of the best-handling cars in the segment, especially if you’re down with the ZL1 1LE.

But with the Hellcat Redeye and Shelby GT500, even the 650-horsepower supercharged monster doesn’t stand a chance in a straight line. It remains to be seen if General Motors will take the Camaro past 700 horsepower anytime soon, and for what it’s worth, wishful thinking never hurt anyone.
