Chevrolet Camaro receives minor updates

March 26, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

Camaro is not as popular as before, but that does not mean that Chevrolet is giving up.

Instead, Chevrolet is preparing several updates for the Camaro 2021 model year, which should appear at car dealerships later this year. While the changes are not as extensive as the facelift of 2019 and 2020, the 2021 model received new equipment and an updated color palette.

Starting in appearance, the 2021 Camaro will have a red garnet hue and a bright green metallic. The former will be effectively replaced with a new complementary color called “wild cherry tint”. The internal changes are also modest, but fans will be happy to find an updated infotainment system that now supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Top options, including 3LT and 2SS, also get a new standard wireless smartphone charger.

The engine carries the options and starts with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine that produces 275 hp. and torque of 400 Nm. Customers will also have the opportunity to upgrade to a 3.6-liter V6 rated at 335 bhp. and a torque of 385 Nm. Of course, the high-performance Camaro SS returns with a 6.2-liter V8 at 455 hp. and 616 Nm. Fans can also opt for the Camaro ZL1, which has a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 with 650 hp. and a torque of 880 Nm.

Although the engine remains the same, there is one notable change in the transmission department. The new Camaro SS with 1LE Track Performance is now available with a 10-speed automatic transmission. This is a very significant improvement, since the package was previously exclusive to models with a 6-speed manual gearbox.

There is currently no price information, but it is expected that Camaro 2021, when it appears in dealerships at the end of this year, will be available at the start of sales at a price of at least $ 25,000
