Making their presence known thanks to Hertz yellow graphics against black body panels, the models offer a litany of upgrades, such as custom wheels and new badging in the cabin, not to mention “full performance upgrades” as fitted by Hendrick Motorsports.
The 2020 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 boasts the supercharged 6.2L V8 Small Block LT4 engine, which produces upwards of 750 horsepower, a 100-horsepower bump over the standard model’s 650 horsepower, achieved via an upgraded Callaway blower. Meanwhile, the 2020 Chevrolet Camaro SS offers up 480 horsepower from its naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 Small Block LT1 engine, a 25-pony increase over the standard model’s 455 horsepower, which is made possible with a new intake and cat-back exhaust.
Both models also get Hertz wheels, Hertz lighted door sills, embroidered headrests, fender badges, and a custom plaque, while the SS gets a new Hendrick Motorsports strut tower bar as well.
To promote the release of the new rentable muscle machines, customers are offered a chance to participate in The Hertz Ultimate Ride Sweepstakes, which includes a chance to win one of the 2020 Hertz-Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet Camaro SS models. Other prizes include a shot at a driving experience at Charlotte Motor Speedway with William Byron, a tour of the Hendrick Motorsports facilities, NASCAR Hall of Fame passes, and lunch with the No. 24 Hendrick Motorsports team. Details are available at Hertz.com/CamaroSweepstakes.
Hertz has traditionally offered iterations of the Ford Mustang when it comes to its rentable high-performance muscle cars, but considering the rental company launched a partnership with the GM-centric Hendrick Motorsports back in 2018, the about-face to the Bow Tie brand isn’t entirely surprising.
Just 224 examples of the Hertz-Hendrick Motorports Chevrolet Camaro models will be available, with deliveries set to start in October 2019 at the following Hertz airport locations:
- Ft. Lauderdale
- Ft. Meyers
