The automaker has added a new trim to the Camaro lineup designed to pull customers away from the Mustang and Challenger. Introducing the 2020 Camaro LT1.
Chevrolet says the 2020 Camaro LT1 “combines the content and design” of the Camaro 1LT and the Camaro SS, offering customers a less expensive way to get themselves into a Camaro with the 455-horsepower 6.2-liter LT1 V8. It will be available with a six-speed manual transmission or 10-speed automatic and will be offered in both coupe and convertible body styles.
Prices for the Camaro LT1 will start at $34,995 including destination. For comparison’s sake, the 2019 Ford Mustang GT starts at $36,350 including destination, while the Challenger R/T starts at $35,790 including destination.
“The new Camaro LT1 is a great choice for those seeking a pure V8 performance experience,”said Chevy’s director of passenger car marketing, Steve Majoros. “And at less than $35,000, it will be one of the most affordable V-8 performers on the market.”
It seems as though any equipment available on the 2020 Camaro LT will be available to throw on the 2020 Camaro LT1. Some of the new optional equipment available on the LT for 2020 includes a rear spoiler, red or orange brake calipers, 20-inch alloy wheels, Recaro seats, dark tinted taillamps and a sueded steering wheel and shift knob.
The addition of the 2020 Camaro LT1 to the automaker’s lineup was announced today alongside changes to the 2020 Camaro SS. The updated 2019 Camaro SS was panned by media and consumers, leading Chevrolet to fast-track a redesign for 2020.
