If you see the 2020 year edition of the Chevrolet Camaro, you can find in it all the attributes that can define a perfect sports car.But this development was not done overnight. In its predeceasing editions, the Camaro series from Chevrolet was more popular as a muscle car that gradually took the shape of a sports car with various modifications. When we got curious to know about this amazing transformation, we asked one of the Chevrolet experts whom we met at the Jacksonville Chevrolet dealership, who explained the entire story in simple terms that we felt worth sharing.
The 2020 year lineup of Chevrolet Camaro queues up as LS, 1LT, 2LT, and 3LT trims. The entire 2020 lineup of the Chevrolet Camaro stands erect on a magnificent architecture that it shares to quite an extent with the Cadillac group. This state-of-the-art design of this architecture enhanced both the levels of agility and the thrilling feel that only driving a sports car can bring.
The recent changes in the design includes a new body-color bar for the front fascia in tune with a prominent all-black grille. The 2020 Chevrolet Camaro with its newly attained low-slung height, a longer hood with a shorter deck looks like a perfect sports car while the flared up rear fenders, completes the look when you see it from the rear end.
The Power Source
To match the outside strength and impression Chevrolet has assigned highly powerful engines that never leave any scope for the 2020 Camaro to get thirsty for power.
For this year Chevrolet has added a new V-8 engine to the lineup, that caters the LT1 trim pf the Camaro series, while the standard powertrain holds on to a 275-hp making 2.0-liter turbo-4 engine. The newly added 6.2-liter V-8 engine is capable of cranking 455-horsepower but can do more with its turbo-4 combination while the 3.6-liter V-6 models too keep the performance records straight by showing its capacity to throw 335-hp after being paired to 6-speed manual transmission. However, for the other engine options with more capacity Chevrolet offers both an 8-speed and 10-speed automatic transmission depending upon the body styles one chooses to have.
Performance of a Sports Car
The calling card of any real sports car lies in its performance. So with all the above mentioned power houses stored under its hood, the 2020 Chevrolet Camaro hits the margin with a new record of performance.
While the models with turbo-4 and V-6 engines sprints a speed of 0-60 mph in 5.0-5.4-seconds, the 6.2-liter V-8 engines make it at 4.0 seconds. On the other side the SS models maintains an equally impressive track performance, while the range topping ZL1 models with an abundant 650-hp created from its V-8 engine transforms the sports car to awith acceleration numbers counting 3.5-second to raise a 0-60 mph with a top speed of 198 mph.
That was reason enough to make us visit the Jacksonville Chevrolet dealership showroom and test out these super sports car models performing on regular roads.
