Perhaps it’s not surprising given GM’s justifiable obsessions with trucks and autonomous vehicles that a SS like appearance, a new LT1 V8 model and 10-speed option with the 3.6L V6 are all there is for the 2020 Camaro.
The SS now has a re-positioned bowtie emblem in the upper grille and a body-color bar between the upper and lower grilles from the SEMA show car. (Slow News – Chevrolet SEMA Show Car Has New Exterior Color)
The new LT1 model combines the content and design of the Camaro LT (1LT trim) and SS. It is powered by the 455-horsepower (339 kW) LT1 engine, making it the most “affordable” choice for V8 performance in the Camaro lineup with a starting MSRP of $34,995 (including destination).
The Camaro LT1 is offered in coupe and convertible models, with a standard six-speed manual transmission or anoptional10-speed automatic. Included:
- LT exterior styling combined with the SS’s vented hood.
- LT1 fender badges and black bowtie emblems.
- 20-inch x 8.5-inch SS style wheels at all four corners and all-season tires (versus the SS’s staggered wheels and summer performance tires).
- Optional Technology Package, including the Chevrolet infotainment system with 8-inch-diagonal color touchscreen and Bose audio system.
The 2020 Camaro lineup goes on sale early this fall, with production at General Motors’ Lansing Grand River Assembly facility in Michigan.
