These days, we can see a lot of interesting things happening on the market, but Chevy is preparing something really amazing. It looks like we are about to see a comeback of the model that left a great mark in the automotive history and still is in conversation, despite the fact it hasn’t been around for more than a three decades. According to the latest reports, we are about to see the 2020 Chevy El Camino in the next year. The famous coupe/ute is about to come back if we can rely on unofficial reports. Keep in mind that everything we’ve heard so far is just a speculation, so take the following paragraphs with a dose of a reserve.
2020 Chevy El Camino Design
Of course, there is a lot of things that come to mind with this model. One of them is the 2020 Chevy El Camino design. Therefore, the first thing we should discuss is the platform. In the past, this model has been pretty sporty, despite the cargo bed, so we may presume that the new model will go in the same way. This leaves us no other option but to believe that the new coupe/ute will ride on GM Alpha platform. For those who are unfamiliar with this architecture, it is the same one that underprints the current-generation Chevy Camaro. Moreover, the two models should actually have a lot of things in common, starting from mechanics, but we also expect a lot of aesthetics to be shared.
How would 2020 Chevy El Camino look like?
We have that the new model would stick to its roots. This means a typical coupe/ute layout, which hasn’t been quite popular on the market in the past decades. However, in some other parts of the world, there are models like Holden Ute, which can give you a clearer picture about to base design characteristics. Of course, count that the new model will be fitted to Chevy’s new design language. Moreover, the latest 2020 Chevy El Camino rumors are suggesting that a close relationship with the Camaro. The famous muscle car will serve as a basis for the new model. Besides the same mechanics, we count on the same front end as well. From the bumper to the B pillar, things should be largely the same. The rest of the vehicle should come with a cargo bed and in a typical truck manner, although it will be very close to the ground.
Once again, expect from the new model to stick to its roots. Therefore, a two-seat configuration seems like a certain thing. We’ve already mentioned that the new model will have a lot in common with the Camaro, and this includes the cabin design as well. This particularly refers to the dashboard, which should look pretty much the same.
2020 Chevy El Camino Engine
We count on engines that are typical for the Alpha platform. A new 2.0-liter turbo-four could find its way under the hood, but we are much closer to believe that base models would come with a more familiar 3.6-liter V6, probably tuned to around 335 horsepower. A hi-performance, SS-badged version is expected as well, so you may presume that the 2020 Chevy El Camino price would go in a pretty wide range. This version would feature a well-known 6.2-liter V8, probably tuned to around 455 horsepower.
Both engines should come with an 8-speed automatic transmission and standard rear-wheel drive.
Release Date and Price
At this point, we don’t have anything from the officials about this model. We can only rely on unofficial reports and these are suggesting that the 2020 Chevy El Camino release date could be scheduled all ready for the next year. When it comes to the price, base models would probably go around 30.000 dollars.
