Chevrolet has pulled the covers back ever so slightly on the 2014 Camaro SS, which is scheduled to debut at the upcoming New York Auto Show on Wednesday, March 27. As pointed out by GM in the brief press release below, this is the first meaningful update to the fifth-generation Camaro, minus all the more recent model variants, naturally.

We're not expecting a bevy of exterior modifications – regardless of what you think of its performance, the fact that it's been "the most popular sports car in America for three consecutive years" proves people like what they see – but we can spot a nip here and a tuck there (click on the image above to enlarge). For instance, there's chrome trim highlighting the fascia, and the grille has been restyled with a cleaner look. We're curious to see the rest of the car, especially what's just out of frame in this teaser, like the air intake seen on the current car.

We're also hoping for powertrain updates, including the addition of the LS7 engine, along with an improved interior. And finally, now would probably be a good time to remind you that we have seen some interesting views of what may be a refreshed Camaro already via the set of spy shots you see below. There aren't any guarantees that these spy shots are the finished product, or if it is something other than as SS – it definitely doesn't match the current car or the teaser above – but you're welcome to scroll on through regardless.

      I remember a time in advertising when they used to atleast TRY to make you want the car by formally revealing it at an autoshow and then follow-up with tv ads that showcased their products. Now, they tease you, they leak it, & then they show you an ad on tv with a bunch of dancing hamsters. I must be getting old.

      hmm. I sure hope that chrome is optional. No need to add chrome to the nose of the car. Without seeing the rest, the first thing I'd want to do is paint that chrome bar black.

        It is optional -- you can just get one of the non-SS trim packages.

      Are teaser images really necessary? I think we all know exactly what the car will look like.

      I guess this is the last update for the Zeta Camaro.

      i have said it before, and i will say it again. if it was made in the year 2013 it is a 2013. if you were born in 2013, your year of birth is not 2012. although it would have been nice so you could get served at a bar a year early!

      What kind of 'teaser' image is that? Show something that people care about. I doubt someone out there is going "jeeze, I'm glad I waited to get mine so that I can have a chrome strip above my grill!" The Camaro isn't that bad guys, give it a fair chance. Stupid teaser image though.

      What's with GM and Chrome? 99% of the chrome they use is plastic anyways. And they seem to love applying it in acres on their cars. No word of a lie, here in Toronto there has most recently been an ad on the radio about buying a new Silverado and getting over $2G in Chrome accessories. The overuse on GM's part of chrome is ridiculous. Adding chrome doesn't make the cars design any more coherent, and if any, detracts from the design itself. I'm ready for the GM fanboy downvotes. Bring it on.

        i am a GM fanboy and i totally agree with you......GM did not need to throw chrome on the camaro, i like the dark sunk in nose of the camaro....it made it look more agressive......

        The ad you are hearing is not from GM, it's from a dealer.

      For a car so important to Chevrolet, I hope Chevy will raid the tip jar spend $5 on better plastics for the Camaro's interior. When a person gets behind the wheel of an icon like the Camaro, the word "Playskool" shouldn't come to mind when you touch anything on or around the dashboard. Or the door panels or center console, for that matter, either. I'm going to keep my hopes up for the 2014 Camaro.

      Government Motors at it again!....This is a Holden rebadged as a Chevy, a 4,000 lb turd. That\'s what is called a HEAVY Chevy!

          Agreed...at least he got as current as the Aztek. If people look at the crap Hyundai made at the same time, they'd get flamed.

        Actually, the Aztek was not a bad vehicle either - yeah, people like to get their shorts in a knot about the exterior, but it was the first 3 row CUV, has very flexible seating, got pretty good mileage for the time and the owners are still huge fans, so yeah, not so crappy. Even had an optional tent that connected to the tailgate. The last couple years that lost the two tone look had much better appeal visually as well. People just like to jump on the 12 to 14 year old commenter bandwagon on this whole 'worst car ever' horse manure. Seriously - if you want to see a really, really awful looking car, look at the Fiat Multipla, or in the US, how about the Toyota Echo? Nissan Murano convertible? Nissan Juke? Hyundai Veloster? See? There are fans of all of those I just listed (well, I hope no one was a fan of the Echo) but none are the 'worst car ever', or even close. The Yugo is the worst that I can recall being sold in the US, with the Renault Alliance being a close second.

      The camaro prove to be a winner in the exterior looks department but inside the camaro leaves a lot to be desired.

        You can say that again. You'd think that bringing the car back after its absence GM would want to impress with the interior, exterior, and performance. Well, you'd be wrong.
