We revealed many of the new Transformer 4 vehicles but left everyone guessing as to what the newest Bumblebee Camaro would look like. Well here it is in all of its controversial-looking skin. Of course it is very different from the all-new 2014 Camaro that we have seen with its new fresh face-lift. This new Bumblebee is just… ‘different’. Transformers 4 is said to be released June 27, 2014. What are your thoughts?

Chevrolet looks like it will have a pretty epic year in 2013, thanks to the introduction of the 2014 Corvette Stingray and the 2014 Chevrolet SS sedan. While these two enthusiast-oriented vehicles are all-new, Chevrolet doesn’t want its fans to forget about the Camaro, either.

Calling it “the most significant change for the fifth-generation Camaro,” Chevrolet will unveil the updated 2014 Camaro at the New York Auto Show. It isn’t releasing any details (aside from the teaser image seen here), but it’s safe to expect a few styling tweaks, as well as a potentially updated interior.

We don’t see any major changes to the Camaro’s engine offerings, but GM could pull a fast one on us here; after all, it just announced a twin-turbo 3.6-liter V-6 for the Cadillac CTS and XTS, and that engine would fit nicely in the Camaro’s engine bay. Who wouldn’t want SS power with better fuel economy?

It’s worth pointing out that this face-lifted Camaro won’t be all-new. The next generation Camaro will reportedly use a smaller and lighter platform (which we view as a good thing), meaning that production won’t begin until Camaro assembly moves from Ontario, Canada to Michigan. The earliest that move will take place is 2015, meaning that an all-new Camaro isn’t likely to appear before 2016.

Though recognized as an icon of Americana, the Chevrolet Camaro has a dirty little secret that casual fans of the car probably don’t know: the current version isn’t built in the United States. Since the new model was launched in 2009, production has been handled exclusively by GM’s Oshawa Assembly Plant, located in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada.

That changes when the next generation of Camaro begins production sometime in 2014. Assembly will be moved to General Motor’s Lansing Grand River Assembly Plant in Lansing, Michigan. The official reason is “lower capital investment and improved production efficiencies,” but the issue is far more complex that a simple sentence makes it sound.

First, the Zeta-platform Camaro is the only rear-drive car built on the Oshawa line, which adds to the complexity of assembly. When production shifts to Lansing, the next-generation Camaro will be built alongside other rear-drive cars, such as the Cadillac ATS and the Cadillac CTS. Word is that the next Camaro will also share GM’s Alpha platform with the Cadillac ATS, so building both under the same roof makes good financial sense.

As for the Oshawa plant, the trade-off is that it will continue to produce the Chevy Impala when the next generation launches in 2014. The Impala will join other Oshawa-built front-wheel drive cars, including the Cadillac XTS, the Chevy Equinox and the Buick Regal.
