We already knew that an update to the refreshed front end of the Camaro SS was expedited for production after Chevy received a ton of negative feedback about the controversial front end of the facelifted 2019 model. Chevy officially confirmed the new front end earlier in May, and also announced a new Camaro LT1 model that will join the lineup as an affordable V8-powered model. In addition to all that, the 2020 Camaro will also see various other noteworthy changes outside of those two (rather major) items.
So, here are all the 2020 Camaro changes and updates we know of thus far.
- GM 10-speed automatic transmission now available in conjunction with models powered by 3.6L V6 LGX engine (previously available only with 8-speed automatic transmission)
- 3LT now comes standard with the 2.0L Turbo LTG engine (was previously standard with 3.6L LGX engine and optional with 2.0L Turbo LTG)
- Addition of Camaro LT1 model, which is powered by the 6.2L V8 LT1 engine making 455 horsepower (339 kW) and with a starting MSRP of $34,9951 (including destination); it slots below the Camaro SS in the 2020 Camaro lineup
- New front fascia for SS models, with a repositioned bowtie emblem in the upper grille and a body-color bar between the upper and lower grilles
- Rally Green exterior color
- Rear spoiler available on LS and LT (previously available only as part of RS package on LS and LT models)
- Dark-tinted taillamps available on LS and LT (previously available only as part of RS package on LS and LT models)
- 20-inch forged aluminum wheels available on LT, LT1 and SS (previously available only with RS package on LT models)
- Red or orange brake calipers available on LT, LT1 and SS models (previously orange calipers were available on SS models only, orange calipers were not available at all)
- Black bowtie badges and Camaro fender badge available on LT
- Red seat belts available on all models (previously on ZL1 only)
- Red kneepads available on all models (previously also available on all models, so it’s a bit strange that Chevy lists this as a new feature)
- Recaro performance seats available on LT (previously available only on LT 1LE)
- Sueded microfiber-trimmed steering wheel and shift knob trim available on LT and SS (previously available on LT 1LE, SS 1LE, and ZL1)
- Alloy pedals available on all models (previously standard only on ZL1 and not available on other models)
- Adrenaline Red and Ceramic White leather interiors now available on 2LT (previously only available on 3LT and 2SS only)
- 3LT trim level now comes standard with the Convenience and Lighting package (previously optional), which includes:
- Memory Package, which recalls two driver “presets” for 8-way power driver seat and outside mirrors
- Heated steering wheel
- Multi-color Driver Information Center
- Head-Up Display
- Rear Park Assist
- Rear Cross Traffic Alert
- Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert
- Forward Collision Alert
- Outside heated power-adjustable and driver-side auto-dimming, body-color mirrors
- Interior spectrum lighting
That’s all we know so far about the other changes and updates to the 2020 Camaro, though we expect that more changes will surface as we get closer to the model’s launch. Subscribe to GM Authority for more Camaro news, Chevrolet news and continuous GM news coverage.
About Chevrolet Camaro
The Chevrolet Camaro is a family of sports cars that includes a two-door coupe and two-door soft-top convertible as well as various performance variants such as SS, 1LE, ZL1 and ZL1 1LE. The legendary nameplate was first introduced in 1966 and went out of production in 2002, when the model was in its fourth generation. The Camaro was re-introduced in 2009 as an all-new fifth-generation model based on the GM Zeta platform.
The Camaro is currently Chevrolet's most affordable sports car, slotting below the Chevrolet Corvette. The current model was introduced for the 2016 model year and represents the sixth generation of the Camaro nameplate. The model rides on the GM Alpha platform shared with the Cadillac ATS and Cadillac CTS, though the majority of the architecture underpinning the Camaro are unique to it.
The 2018 Chevy Camaro represents the third model year of the sixth-gen Camaro that deleted the Camaro 50th Anniversary Edition and the Krypton Green exterior color, while adding the ZL1 1LE Extreme Track Performance Package. There's also an expanded availability of the SS 1LE Track Performance Package, which is now available on the 2SS Coupe, as well as the addition of a washer fluid level sensor.
A midcycle refresh arrives for the 2019 model year that introduces new, model-specific front and rear styling, a new trim level structure for LT models that adds a new 3LT trim, and a new 1LE track performance package for the 2.0L Turbo LTG engine. The 2019 Camaro also brings the new GM 10-speed automatic transmission for SS models, the Rear Camera Mirror, third-generation infotainment systems, and various other enhancements.
