Following a refresh in 2019 and the introduction of the new LT1 model in 2020, the 2021 Chevy Camaro will continue as a carryover model. Though it’ll look virtually identical to the current model, it will boast a few upgraded features and repositioned optional packages.
Visually, the bulk of the 2020 Chevy Camaro will look identical to the current model, including the relatively new slim headlights and taillights and other updates that came with the 2019 refresh. Though the design will remain, the new Camaro will drop the Garnet Red Tintcoat and Rally Green Metallic color options and introduce the Wild Cherry Tintcoat option.
Inside, the overall design of the Camaro will remain untouched in 2020, but there will be fewer wires to mess around with, as it will boast standard wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto across the entire lineup and standard wireless charging on 3LT and 2SS trims.
Though the looks will be virtually identical, an early order guide indicates Chevy will shift around the 2020 Camaro’s optional packages. The LT1 trim will gain the RS and Redline Edition packages, and Chevy will ax the Shock and Steel Special Edition and Camaro Insignia packages.
Under the hood, we expect the 2021 Camaro to remain the same. If this is the case, it’ll boast four engine options, including a standard 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 275 horsepower and three optional engines: a 335-hp 3.5-liter V6, a 455-hp 6.2-liter V8, and a 650-hp supercharged 6.2-liter V8. The only expected powertrain update, according to reports, will be the 1LE model gaining an optional 10-speed automatic – it came exclusively with a manual gearbox in previous years.
As with many in the pony-car class, the current Camaro struggles in the safety department. It received “Good” ratings in all IIHS crash tests except the one “Acceptable” it received in the roof-strength test. Where is flopped was in the forward crash prevention test, as it has only optional forward collision alert, resulting in a “Basic rating. It has no available automatic emergency braking. Of course, these ratings keep it from being an IIHS Top Safety Pick. We expect no changes in this area when the 2021 Camaro hits showrooms.
