More Power for Less Money: 2020 Camaro Gets New Nose & Cheaper V8 Base Model
You might recall that last fall at the 2019 SEMA Show, Chevy showed off a concept version of the Camaro that was largely the same as the production car with the exception of a slightly restyled front end. It was seen as a response to criticism about the look of the refreshed 2019 Camaro's front bumper, and there was plenty of speculation that the concept's front end would soon become standard issue.
Now just one model year later, Chevy has indeed given the 2020 Camaro SS another facelift based on the bumper design from the SEMA car, and it features a lot less black than the 2019 car for an overall cleaner look.
But perhaps the bigger story that comes with the debut of the 2020 Camaro is the addition of a new model called the Camaro LT1. It comes with the standard content of the Camaro LT model but gets the 455hp V8 of the Camaro SS all for a starting price of $34,995, a few thousand cheaper than the base price of the SS. It features 20x8.5-inch wheels all around versus the staggered setup from the SS, and like the SS it can be had with either a six-speed manual or 10-speed automatic.
With the price of performance cars continuing to rise, it's nice to see Chevy offering a more barebones version of the V8 Camaro, and there's no doubt the 2020 models' refreshed front end will be seen as an improvement over the old design. The 2020 Camaro will be on sale early this fall.
