Chevy's pony car is a divisive one. It’s fast on the track, but makes sacrifices as a daily driver. One thing’s for sure: it ain’t boring.

The Camaro has had its ups and its downs. If you know what an Iron Duke engine is, you know about the latter. The 2019 Chevrolet Camaro SS is a bit of a down moment, with a front end design so widely disliked that Chevy has already announced that it would redesign the front end for 2020 along with adding a few other enticements. That said, this buying guide covers the 2019 model year, garish grille and all. If the front end of the V8-powered SS bugs you, you may want to wait for the 2020 model year, which shows up in the fall of 2019. Otherwise, the Camaro remains the most athletic driving machine among the American muscle cars – its performance credentials are exceptional, and with the right options it'll best cars that cost considerably more around a track. On the other hand, its practicality and everyday drivability are lacking compared to the Ford Mustang and Dodge Challenger. What's new for 2019? We've mentioned the garish new SS front end isn't long for this world, but all other versions get an updated front fascia and lighting as well. It was better received and will be what you see on next year's Camaro as well. There are also functional updates for 2019. The SS is now available with a 10-speed automatic transmission (but not on certain V6-powered Camaros until 2020). The 7- and 8-inch touchscreens have been upgraded with greater personalization capability and Cloud-based connectivity. The 1LE package that turns the Camaro into a track-capable superstar can now be applied to cars with the 2.0-liter turbo. You can read about it in our Camaro Turbo 1LE first drive. What's the interior and in-car technology like? The Camaro's cabin is cramped and dark, with high sills that make you feel like you're sitting deep within the vehicle, with large haunches and pillars obscuring visibility in every direction. The Mustang and Challenger aren't great, either, but they're better than the Camaro in this regard. Poor visibility makes it harder to place the Camaro on track, on a mountain road or just in a parking space. At least the convertible gives you the option of rolling back the roof to improve things a bit; keep it up, though, and it gets worse. In terms of ambiance, the Camaro's cabin design is the most modern and arguably stylish of the American muscle car trio. The quality isn't great, but there are some soft-touch surfaces where it matters. The big rotary air vents are notably pretty cool – you actually adjust the temperature by turning the two center ones. Of course, those center ones are also located unusually low. On the up side, that means the 7- or 8-inch touchscreen is located quite high. It oddly tilts downward (perhaps that's beneficial in the convertible to mitigate glare), but it's at least easy to use and packed with standard features. Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, OnStar, 4G LTE Wi-Fi and a six-speaker sound system are all …
