General Motors released details on the updated 2020 Chevrolet Camaro back in the summer, but until recently, the pre-update 2019 model-year Camaro was still the version displayed on the automaker’s website.
Now, with the new year approaching fast, GM has changed its online configurator to display the facelifted 2020 Camaro. The 2020 Camaro is quite a bit different than the 2019 model-year car, with the automaker having changed the vehicle’s front end following negative feedback from fans and customers. The 2019 model-year Camaro featured a large black-painted front fascia grille bar, making the coupe look a bit too busy. By comparison, the 2020 car has a body-color-painted grille bar, giving it a tidier look that has so far received better feedback from Chevy fans.
That’s far from the only change applied to the 2020 Camaro. We put together a lengthy post detailing all the changes GM made to the car for the new model year, which you can read at this link, but some of the bigger improvements include the addition of the new LT1 trim level, the addition of the 10-speed automatic transmission on 3.6-liter LGX V6-powered models and the introduction of the new Shock and Steel and Redline Special Edition models.
We went ahead and configured a 2020 Camaro LT1 for our example vehicle, as this is the model that we think most potential buyers will be interested in. The LT1 is now the cheapest Camaro available with GM’s venerable 6.2-liter LT1 V8 engine, doing away with some of the equipment available on 1SS and 2SS trims in order to bring the starting price down to $34,995 (the Camaro 1SS starts at $37,995). We also chose the Rally Green exterior hue for our car—a new color for 2020.
Unfortunately, GM has yet to add the Shock and Steel or Redline Special Edition models to the configurator, so it remains to be seen what kind of equipment these models will be available with, or how much they will cost.
You can access the configurator at this link. Feel free to share the details of your dream 2020 Chevrolet Camaro in the comments down below and be sure to let us know what you think of the changes GM has made to the coupe for the new model year.
