2020 Chevrolet Camaro SS Gets A Facelift

After all the incessant complaints coming from its fans and consumers, Chevrolet is finally throwing the towel. We mean that in a good way since the carmaker is finally giving in to what its buyers want. This is in reference to the 2020 Chevrolet Camaro SS that’s in the process of changing its looks to appease the public. The negative feedback came about when the new model made its debut last year. It seems that the majority of consumers are not in favor of the large open grille design.

Now that a facelift is in order, the excitement for the new model is back on track. Chevrolet is kissing the black bar goodbye by simply matching its color with the body. Moreover, the designers are moving the emblem to the upper section from its original place on the bar. Now that the rework is in place we can look forward to what it has to offer when it releases later this year. Eagle-eyed consumers noted that the new look takes its cue from the Shock concept model from the SEMA 2018 Auto show.

Another notable update for upcoming 2020 Chevrolet Camaro SS is the addition of a new LT1 trim. The company is offering it for $3,000 lower than the original base model with a few changes of its own. For example, the LT1 will be sporting the same 20-inch x 8.5-inch alloy wheels but will come with all-season tires as standard. Just goes to show that as long as consumers make enough noise, companies occasionally give them what they want.

These might be high-performance and exotic designs, but if it does not generate demand, it will eventually drop off from anyone’s radar. Thankfully, the demand for muscle cars is still strong not only in the US but in other territories worldwide. The upsurge of nostalgic buyers and collectors contribute to a healthy market for these macho vehicles. That’s why the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Coupe makes a grand entrance to the delight of fans.

The American carmaker continues to enjoy a loyal following of individuals who just love pony cars. Therefore, there is a noticeable demand for its Mustang series, which even includes the vintage models. As long as the condition is great, the latter can even fetch a pretty penny during public auctions and exclusive sales. Even their more modern designs still ooze a certain style that just begs for attention.

Other than its jaw-dropping looks, the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Coupe packs a frightening monster underneath its shell. Reports even claim that it’s outright bordering on the supercar category. The company teases that its the most overpowered configuration that it has ever made available on a road-legal vehicle. We are blown away by our discovery that a 5.2-liter supercharged aluminum V8 sits inside the hood. With 700 horsepower at your disposal, this is one pony car that can run from 0 to 60 in less than three seconds.
