A new front-end appearance for the SS and a new LT1 V-8 performance model add style and choice to the 2020 Camaro line-up, while a 10-speed automatic transmission enhances models equipped with the available 3.6L V-6 engine, a press release stated.
The new Camaro SS front-end appearance is based on the distinctive design of the Camaro Shock show vehicle that debuted last fall at the SEMA Show. The SS now features a repositioned bowtie emblem in the upper grille and a body-colour bar between the upper and lower grilles.
"Customers spoke, and we listened," said Steve Majoros, director of Chevrolet passenger car and crossover marketing. "The overwhelmingly positive reaction to the Shock’s stylised design helped prompt its transition from concept to production."
The new LT1 model combines the content and design of the Camaro LT (1LT trim) and SS. It is powered by the 455-horsepower LT1 engine, making it the most affordable choice for V-8 performance in the Camaro line-up.
The Camaro LT1 is offered in coupe and convertible models, with a standard six-speed manual transmission or an available 10-speed automatic. Additional details include:
- 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 tyres (versus the SS’s staggered wheels and summer performance tyres).
- Available Technology Package, including the Chevrolet infotainment system with 8-inch-diagonal colour touchscreen and Bose premium audio system.
A new 10-speed automatic transmission is now matched with the 3.6L V-6 engine in Camaro LT models. It is based on the 10-speed design offered with the Camaro SS and ZL1 but tailored for the performance parameters of the V-6.
