The legend is coming back. Well, spy shots are giving us only hints, but the next year could mean the muscle cars are popular again. After Ford’s plans to return some of the iconic Mustang’s editions, now it is turn for GM to accept the challenge. The 2019 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 is the performance-oriented car we were waiting for it ever since the sixth generation of pony car was launched back in 2016.
From spy shots we can say we saw 2019 Chevrolet Camaro Z28. Big hood scoop is the trademark of this vehicle. Also, powerful engine is under the bonnet. Further options will depend on development.
