2019 Chevy Camaro. CBS News

Chevrolet's rival to Ford's Mustang gets a new face, more technology and a new track-focused package.

Chevrolet has 3,000 U.S. dealers, and 2,900 of them attended the event, representing about 80% of the brand's retail sales volume, says Brian Sweeney, U.S. vice president of Chevrolet, who is pleased with the brand's "health trends", source of sales and customer satisfaction.

"The 2019 Camaro's updated designs are not only striking but also help to improve performance", the automaker says.

Chevrolet Debuts New 2019 Camaro to Mixed Reactions

The new engine option is Chevy's 2.0-liter Turbo 1LE turbocharged four-cylinder, and will be standard on the 2019 Camaro LS and LT. The turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine makes 275 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque, and the auto comes with the Brembo brake package. The driver mode selector has a sport mode and a new track mode, launch control, shift lights, and more. Chevy will offer the Turbo 1LE with only a 6-speed manual transmission and a chassis package that is derived from the V6 1LE. Combined, the extra engineering increases lateral stiffness, and yields a near-perfect 50/50 weight balance, resulting in better handling on the track.

On the other hand, the Camaro's redesigned rump looks pretty nice, with larger, dual-element taillamps that feature new running light signatures. Recaro seats are available.

The Chevrolet Camaro has had some plastic surgery both inside and out for the 2019 model year.

Headlining the revised specification is a new 10-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters for the Camaro SS and the addition of crucial new safety tech such as forward collision alert and a rear camera mirror. Every generation of Camaro is more popular than its predecessor.

The hood and front grille also get reshaped (the latter more unforgivingly huge on SS variants) to optimise air flow, which help cool components like the brakes and reduce drag/lift as well.

Starting with the Camaro's front fascia, the designers gave it a more menacing look thanks to a new set of headlights and a revamped dual-port grill. The SS also scores altered rear diffusers and tweaked taillights, along with updated 20-inch alloy wheels. Taking inspiration from smartphones and tablets, Chevy claimed it is their most high-tech infotainment system to date and comes with improved processing speeds and better graphics. Chevy promises an up-to-date, smartphone-like infotainment experience with voice recognition, over-the-air updates, available navigation and more personalization.

White House homeland security adviser Thomas Bossert resigns
He also headed the administration's cybersecurity efforts, including its response to Russian interference in the 2016 election. US President Donald Trump's homeland security adviser, Tom Bossert , has resigned, the White House confirmed on Tuesday.

Inside, updates comprise new ambient lighting options and, on higher trim levels like the 2SS and ZL1, a rear camera mirror.

Pricing information for the 2019 Camaro will be announced closer to the market launch later this year, though we're not expecting any significant deviation from the $26,900 starting price of the 2018 model.
