2020 Chevrolet Camaro Facelift Gains SS Shock Concept-Inspired Front End

Chevrolet’s 2020 Camaro lineup features new front end styling for the SS, a new LT1 V8 performance model and a 10-speed automatic gearbox option for 3.6-liter V6 models.

The Camaro SS’ front end is inspired by the design of the Camaro SS Shock concept that came out last year at the SEMA Show. This means that the 2020 SS now boasts a repositioned bowtie emblem in the upper grille and a body-color bar between the upper and lower grilles.

Sharper front end design

“Customers spoke, and we listened,” stated Chevrolet marketing exec, Steve Majoros. “The overwhelmingly positive reaction to the Shock’s stylized design helped prompt its transition from concept to production.”

Additional 2020 updates include a new Rally Green exterior color, plus a wide range of features that customers can use in order to personalize their new Camaro.

These include a rear spoiler (on LS, LT), dark-tinted taillights (LS, LT), 20-inch alloy wheels (LT, LT1, SS), red or orange brake calipers (LT, LT1, SS), red seat belts and knee pads available on all models, RECARO performants seats for the LT, sueded microfiber-trimmed steering wheel and shift knob trim (LT, SS), alloy pedals on all models, black bowtie badges and Camaro fender badge for the LT, plus Adrenaline Red and Ceramic White leather interiors available on 2LT (previously 3LT and 2SS only).

Also, the 3LT now comes standard with the 2.0-liter Turbo engine and both the Convenience and Lighting packages, which before were optional.

A new LT1 model

The 2020 Camaro LT1 is said to combine the “content and design” of the 1LT and the SS. Powered by a 455 HP LT1 engine, this is the most affordable Camaro V8 model with a starting MSRP of $34,995, including destination.

Customers can get it in both Coupe and Convertible form, with a standard six-speed manual gearbox or the optional 10-speed automatic. Additional features include the LT exterior styling which now gains the SS’s vented hood, LT1 fender badges, black bowtie emblems, 20-inch SS style wheels, all-season tires, plus the optional Technology Package, which includes an 8-inch color touchscreen and a Bose premium audio system.

“The new Camaro LT1 is a great choice for those seeking a pure V8 performance experience,” said Majoros. “And at less than $35,000, it will be one of the most affordable V8 performers on the market.”

New 10-speed automatic

Chevrolet will now match its 10-speed automatic transmission with the 3.6-liter V6 engine in Camaro LT models. This gearbox is based on the 10-speed design offered in the Camaro SS and ZL1, yet it was specifically tailored for the “performance parameters” of the V6.

Chevy’s 2020 Camaro range will go on sale early this fall, with production taking place at GM’s Lansing Grand River Assembly plant in Michigan.
