The most notable change to the Camaro family for 2020 is the addition of the LT1 model, which lands squarely in between the body style of the LT trim level and the 6.2L V8 engine found in the Camaro SS. The LT1 is the long-rumored, low-cost V8 option that has been absent from the sixth generation of the Camaro. There has been some speculation that the lack of such a model has caused sales of the 6G Camaro to slip, and adding in a lower-cost model will alleviate that problem. It will be available as both a coupe and a convertible. As prices of performance sports cars continue to rise, Chevy’s strategy of including the more basic and less expensive LT1 model can definitely be seen as an improvement over the old design. In addition to the LT1, additional trim levels that will be available are the 1LS, 1LT, 2LT, 3LT, 1SS, 2SS, and 1SE (ZL1). All models are available in coupe or sedan styles. In regards to the SS model, for years, it’s typically been more expensive for drivers seeking the power of a V8. However, with the 2020 Camaro SS, Chevy is wagering that its customers will be willing to forego some of the more luxurious features in favor of more power. Time will tell as to whether or not this gamble pays off.
Two special edition packages are also slated to be introduced - the Shock and Steel Special Edition and Redline Edition, although neither are expected to be available at the start of the 2020 model year. The 3LT trim level on the 2020 Chevy Camaro will include the Convenience and Lighting Package standard. Items in this package include a heated steering wheel, head-up display, rear parking assist, rear cross-traffic alert, forward collision alert, interior spectrum lighting, and more. In addition, the 3LT also gets Chevy’s Infotainment 3 Plus system with a large 8-inch HD touchscreen display standard, with the Infotainment 3 Premium system plus navigation available as an option. A Technology Package is available for the LT1, which offers the 8-inch display, infotainment system, and premium Bose audio.
