Could they have made the 2016 Camaro uglier?

The front end of this Camaro is just plain ugly. I wonder just what they were thinking.
They still use a crappy looking cheap interior and you still feel claustrophobic sitting in one.
I once had a 1969 Z-28 that was perfect. I sure would not want one of these super ugly cars in my garage.
Just not my taste .

I just don't understand why they would do something like this to a good looking design like they had.
I drove a Camaro and did not like it but I did always like the cool mean looks they had.
Now, I would not want to be seen in one.

The Mustang still looks better then that ugly Camaro.

I'm probably just prejudiced because I like the front of my Mustang the best of them all.


Mustang need round headlights to make them kook good. The 2015 Mustang looks OK but it needs round headlights to make it look more like a Mustang.
At least it's not ugly like the Camaro.

The only thing I don't like about the new Camaro is the huge lower grille.

I really did not think that they would make the windows even SMALLER! You can't even see traffic lights out of the current one!

The only thing I don't like is the huge lower grill. I don't think it's ugly, it just doesn't look any different than the current Camaro. Reviews are coming in, the new SS is lighter and a lot faster than the new GTs.

I actually really like the huge lower grille. I don't like the super skinny upper grille.

I sorta agree with you. I for one didn't buy my mustang solely on appearance but I've never thought the camaros were hideous just I do think most camaro owners are d-bags. And obv on this forum the opinions are biased as can be.

I think the new Camaro is a better looking car than the new Mustang.

I thought the 5th gen Camaro looked to edgy (squared and sharp lines/corners), the 6th gen really tamed it down.

Challenger still looks WAY better than either the Camaro or Mustang.

And, from a recent review of the windows on the Camaro V6:

Listening to the V-6 ape a V-8, you may begin to notice that you can’t see out. Like the last Camaro, the 2016 has about as much glass as does the Unabomber’s supermax cell. GM design seems obsessed with exploring how small it can make windows. We’d love to have a Camaro with great visibility, but that’s not happening unless you opt for the convertible and never put the top up. At least the fenders are visible, which makes placing the front of the car easier.

I fully intended on grabbing a 6th gen SS but only if they improved visibility. Seems that they haven't. I still plan on checking one out, I just know it will be a disappointment once you sit in it and can't see out.

Thanks for the explanation. That is just as ugly. I see a lot of the 16's are having these huge ugly grills and they look awful to me.
I'll probably keep my 2012 MCA forever.

Ronnie, Chevy did this because they saw how ugly the new 2015 plus mustangs are and they said, Damn that new mustang is ugly. We got this.

I like that new Camaro design. It's far far far nicer looking than the new Mustang. 😉

Non 🍼and non 🌽fed. I $uck!

When I first saw that that picture I thought it was an FRS... Was going to make a joke about it but I see someone beat me to it.... lol
I prefer the 10-14 Mustangs over the 10-16 Camaro models. They just aren't my flavor.
the 15/16 Mustangs aren't my flavor either. The grille fog lights give me a little retro tickle so I gotta have them.

That side by side pic is really a good one that shows how much higher the dash is and how much smaller are the windows on the Camaro than on the Mustang....

And, again..........I can start looking for all the 2015+ threads for you that know how good looking and forward thinking they are, then send them to you so that you can continue to tell us how much you dislike them.
But, so far you are doing an outstanding job all by yourself....................We could start offering opinions on your car every time you chime in on the 2015's, but you would probably get tired of that, huh?

I'm still undecided about the new Camaro. Some angles it looks good and some angles it looks like crap. I really would have to see one in person and sit in one...

That interior does look phenomenal though.
