The 2020 Chevrolet Camaro is a sports car that’s offered in coupe and convertible body styles. Buyers at dealerships like the Burnsville Chevrolet dealer appreciate the Camaro’s exclusive design that allows it to be personalized in several ways. The Chevy Camaro offers a smooth ride, responsive driving dynamics and a comfortable cabin. There are three engines on offer, starting with the standard 2.0-liter turbo-four and ending with an incredibly powerful supercharged 6.2-liter V8. Coupe models can get the optional 1LE performance package, which turns the Camaro into a track racing superstar.
Not content to let the Camaro rest on its laurels, Chevrolet updates the front-end styling of the Camaro SS and the new LT1 just a year after its mid-cycle refresh. According to Burnsville Chevrolet, the new fascia sees the bowtie emblem relocated to the top grille, and the bar between the two grilles is now painted the same color as the body. The all-new LT1 model is the least expensive way to get the V8 powerplant, while the V6 Camaro is now mated to a 10-speed automatic gearbox, replacing the previous eight-speed. There are more customization options and a new Rally Green paint color.

The Camaro rides on GM's Alpha platform, which is shared with both the Cadillac ATS and CTS. It's an incredibly stiff and light foundation for a performance car, and coupled with weight loss elsewhere relative to the previous generation—200 pounds in total—the Camaro packs quite a punch.”
The 2020 Chevrolet Camaro is available in seven trim levels: 1LS, 1LT, 2LT, 3LT, 1SS, 2SS and ZL1. The base 1LS is only offered as a coupe, while the other trims are available in either coupe or convertible body styles. All models get standard rear-wheel drive.
Here’s a rundown on the four engines that can be had under the hood of the 2020 Chevrolet Camaro:
The 1LS, 1LT and 2LT trims are powered by the base 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 275 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque, mated to a standard six-speed manual gearbox or an available eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters.
The 3LT comes with a 3.6-liter V6 unit that produces 335 hp and 284 lb-ft of torque mated to a standard six-speed manual transmission or an available 10-speed automatic. This engine is optional on the 1LT and 2LT trims.
The 1SS trim is motivated by a 6.2-liter V8 that blasts out 455 hp and 455 lb-ft of twist, connected to a standard six-speed manual transmission with rev-matching downshift. Buyers can choose an optional 10-speed automatic gearbox.
Powering the ZL1 is a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 that churns out an incredible 650 hp and 650 lb-ft, teamed to a standard six-speed manual or an optional 10-speed automatic transmission.
As of this writing, the 2020 Chevrolet Camaro has yet to be tested by the NHTSA. Last year’s model received the highest score of five stars for overall safety. We expect the 2020 model to receive the same score as the previous model.
