A few weeks ago, we posted a series of photos of the 2020 Chevrolet Camaro sitting in the beautiful LT1 on the 2019 Woodward Dream Tour in Detroit. Those pictures were taken at night. But now, we’ve taken new photos of the same car during the day, giving us a better understanding of the powerful exterior styling of the new muscle car.
The trim level of the 2020 Chevrolet Camaro LT1 was announced in early May of this year, stabilizing the Bow Tie brand as an entry-level V8 engine model. We’ve been discussing taking a closer look at this machine, and now we have it.
The first thing that caught our attention was the hot impact paint (GKO color code) that looked almost glossy.
Because it’s based on the LT trim level, the Chevrolet Camaro LT1 2020 offers the sophisticated styling of the LT instead of the SS model.
However, under the hood, the 2.0L four-cylinder turbocharged LTG and the 3.6L six-cylinder naturally aspirated LGX with LT accessories are nowhere to be found. In contrast, the LT1 is equipped with a 6.2L naturally aspirated V8 LT1 engine that can produce 455 horsepower and 455 lb-ft of torque. Output is via either the six-speed manual transmission or the new GM 10-speed automatic output.
For those looking for more information, we looked at how the LT1 compares to other equipment levels in the June issue.
To maintain its brilliance, the Chevrolet Camaro LT1 2020 comes standard with FE3 sport suspension, which is the same as the Camaro SS. However, unlike the SS, LT1 does not provide GM levitation control.
This particular Camaro LT1 is equipped with upgraded five-spoke carbon fiber flash aluminum wheels on all four corners with a 20-inch diameter (RPO RTH code). At the same time, an optional dual-mode exhaust system (NPP) is located at the rear.
We also took a look inside, including the flat-bottomed steering wheel.
The Chevrolet Camaro LT1 2020 is a new product of the 2020 model and has launched a line of sports cars as the most affordable V8 model, located underneath the Camaro 1SS, with different panels and many other SS-specific advantages, while sharing the 6.2L LT1 engine.
