    Daytime television; a place where soap operas, talk shows, game shows, and the mid-day news live. Nothing really happens... Except for today.

    On today's episode of Live With Kelly and Michael, the new 2014 Chevrolet Camaro made a surprise visit. The new Camaro comes with a narrower grille and headlights, and a widened front valance opening. The hood gains a center row of vents. The biggest change deals with the rear end as Chevrolet replaced the quad-square taillights for two rectangular lamps.

    The show also revealed that no big changes are happening the Camaro's trim levels. So the 2014 models will still be the LS, LT, SS, and ZL1.

    We'll have more details on the 2014 Camaro tomorrow.

    Nose is OK, I like the vented Hood and I do like the updated Rear on this, but for me the surprising steal of the 4 cars they showed was the Stingray. It looks way better than what I have seen in pictures. :P

    The updates are fine as it does what it is intended to do. I suspect this is a sign the 6 gen will be less retro but would still not be mistaken for a Camaro with them moving away from some retro cues.

    The hood as long as it is functional is fine I just wished it was wider but they may have has limitations. If it is fake lose it. Hood vents as like I have on my Pontiac work in cooling and stability. They also make a hell of a bug deflector if you have never driven a car with one..

    As for the interior people just need to stop. With a new car coming in 2 years you are not going to get a whole new interior. It is what it is and it will change in the new Alpha. You are lucky to get this mild refresh to be honest with sales as they are old GM would have just hung on for 2 more years to the old one.

    I'm not a huge fan of the new front fascia, nor the taillights. I understand that designers are wanting to pursue new themes and advance the old ones, but that has to be a gradual thing, and you walk a fine line when you try to start doing that with an exsisting model. This MCE doesn't come across as cohesive nor very clean to me. It seems a little rushed, a little messy.

    As far as the hood goes, it would have been more interesting if they had done a retro modern spin on past Camaro SS hoods, like the '67-69 or '80s Z-28 hood. The front looks goofy and angry.

    Just watched the live reveal. The car looked better than any of the previous leaked images/video. I no longer think that the rear update looks bad. Also, Z/28!

      At first glance, you might be thinking why is Buick teasing the LaCrosse sedan again. But actually, what you are looking at is the 2018 Buick Enclave that will be debuting next month at the New York Auto Show. The image shows the Enclave following the footsteps of the Encore and LaCrosse with a new waterfall grille and slimmer headlights. From spy shots we reported on last month, we're not expecting any major changes in the overall shape.
      Expect the current 3.6L V6 producing 305 horsepower to be residing under the hood, paired with a nine-speed automatic.

      The departure of the current Holden Commodore means Australians will not get their fill of V8 muscle. But it seems help could be on the way from America.
      A new report from Wheels says the Camaro will be heading down under to give the Ford Mustang some much needed competition. But don't expect to see the current Camaro make the trip. Wheels says it will be the next-generation model due in 2021 that will do battle. This is due to the engineering work needed to do a right-hand drive version. 
      We know that that the Camaro team has been watching the Australian marketplace since the Mustang went on sale to see how it would do. Since the Mustang was introduced in Australia last year, 6,000 models have been sold. This is likely one of the key reasons GM decided to go forward with these plans.
      It should be noted there is a fail-safe to these plans. If the Australian market loses interest in rear-drive, V8 muscle cars, GM can pull the plug on this project as late as 2019.

      Fiat Chrysler Automobiles' New York showing looks to be all performance. We already know the Dodge Challenger Demon which looks to be even madder than the Hellcat will show up, but there is also the possibility of a high-performance Jeep coming as well.
      Motor Authority has learned from a source that Jeep will be showing the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk - the one with the Hellcat V8 - in New York. This follows a report from last year where Jeep CEO Mike Manley said the model would debut sometime in 2017.
      The Trackhawk is one of the worst kept secrets in the past few years. Various spy photos and videos have shown Grand Cherokee mules of all sorts running around with key changes to indicate a more powerful engine - larger vents and brakes for example. A number have also reported the distinctive sound of the Hellcat V8. It is still unclear if the Trackhawk will get the full 707 horsepower or be detuned.
