This no-frills V8 model is intended to woo customers away from the Ford Mustang and Dodge Challenger, both of which are currently outperforming the Camaro in the pony car sales race.
GM just may succeed in putting some more butts in the seats of the Camaro for 2020, as the bare bones LT1 model is pretty enticing.
The 2020 Camaro LT1 is packing the same 455-horsepower 6.2-liter LT1 V8 as the Camaro 1SS and 2SS, but has less standard options. This has allowed Chevy to price the car from $34,995 – undercutting the $36,350 Mustang GT and essentially matching the $35,790 Challenger R/T.
The 2020 Camaro LT1 will be available with a six-speed manual or 10-speed automatic transmission and will be offered in both coupe and convertible body styles. Options available to throw on the regular 2.0-liter and 3.6-liter V6 Camaro LT will also be offered in the LT1, including a rear spoiler, colored brake calipers, sueded interior components, Recaro seats and more.
Additionally, the new entry-level V8 model features the exterior appearance of the 2.0-liter turbo and 3.6-liter V6 powered Camaro, rather than the more aggressive look of the Camaro SS. This gives owners the option to choose the Camaro fascia they prefer – no matter which engine they want. It also makes the Camaro LT1 a bit of a sleeper thanks to the less aggressive look of the non-SS fascia.
