The Chevy Camaro has been on the market for literal decades. If anything, this speaks of the lineup’s qualities. Soon, we will see a new member of the lineup: the 2020 Chevy Camaro. Do you want to know more about the upcoming Camaro? If you do, you’d want to read on. Below, we listed five facts you should know about the 2020 Camaro.
#1: It Will Look Better
Many complain about how the current iteration of Camaro looks like. Chevy, listening to these complaints, gives a new frontal look for the 2020 Camaro. The bowtie, previously placed in the front crossbar, is moved to the top of the grille, the bar, which is previously painted black, will be painted body color. In short, it will look better.
#2: It Will Weigh Less
The body panels, as well as the structural components of the upcoming Camaro, is said to be supplied by Teijin, a supplier for mass carbon fiber. Since a lot of 2020 Camaro’s parts will be made of mass carbon fiber, it will weigh less than its predecessor. How much weight will it shed? No exact detail has been reported but probably in the hundreds of pounds range. That’s a serious weight loss.
#3: There Will Be Green Camaros
Do you like a green car? If so, you would like a green Camaro. The manufacturer offers a Rally Green color option for the 2020 Chevy Camaro. If you are a Camaro fan, the name probably sounds familiar. That’s not surprising. A color palette with the same name was available for the first-generation Camaro years ago.
#4: V6 and V8 Engine Options with a Hybrid Powertrain Will Be Available
The 2020 Camaro will come in two engine options. The first engine option is a 3.6L, V6 engine and the second engine option is a V8 engine. Interestingly enough, the V8 engine is also available for the LT1 trim. This puts the LT1 trim in the middle of the SS trim, which is a higher trim, and the 1LT, which is the base trim. This also means that you can get a V8 engine at a much cheaper price. Awesome, isn’t it?
Another interesting fact about the engine options is it appears Chevrolet is aiming to go greener. That’s right, the 2020 Camaro will have a hybrid powertrain. Albeit the new Chevrolet will not be a fully electric vehicle, it will be powered by both electric and gas motors. This makes the Camaro more powerful with more output and instant torque.
In case the new Camaro is not powerful enough, the fact that it has hybrid powertrain means that it can be made even more powerful further. Yes, including even the base engine. There are many third-party shops that can do this.
#5: More Features Are Available to More Trims
Back then, a rear spoiler was limited to the RS package only. It will be different for the 2020 Chevy Camaro, though. A rear spoiler will be available for the LT and LS trims as well.
The Recaro performance seats, which used to be limited for the 1LE only, now are also available for the LT trim. Red seat belts and allow pedals are both available for all trims.
