There wasn’t a whole lot of muscle car news this year at the 2020 Chicago Auto Show, but if you looked closely enough on the show floor, you may find something special. For instance, at the Chevrolet display is the 2020 Camaro Shock And Steel Special Edition, in the sheetmetal, finally. And we’ve put together a live photo gallery, just for you.

The 2020 Chevrolet Camaro Shock And Steel Special Edition has been leaked a few times by now, so at this point we will just summarize what you’ll get.

The package looks different based on whether the customer selects either the Shock or Satin Steel Metallic paint colors. Both will include 20-inch blade design aluminum wheels, and Carbon Flash painted outside mirrors. If Shock is the chosen color, a center stripe is silver. If Satin Steel, the stripe is Shock colored. Out back is a body-color winged spoiler, with a contrasting stripe keeping with the Shock/Steel theme. A black fuel filler door with a carbon fiber insert comes with the package, as do yellow-pained Brembo 4-piston front calipers. Black sueded knee pads are found inside the cockpit, as is a carbon fiber instrument panel frame, and premium carpeted floor.

The 2020 Chevrolet Camaro Shock And Steel Special Edition is available in both coupe and convertible forms, on the 2LT and 3LT trim levels, as well as the V8-powered 2SS trim level.

Chevrolet otherwise is offering plenty of new content for the 2020 model year Camaro, led but the new LT1 trim level (not to be confused with the 1LT, or the V8 engine that otherwise powers it). The 2020 Chevrolet Camaro LT1 gives customers 455 horsepower courtesy of a 6.2L V8, but otherwise holds back on some of the content that can be found on the SS trim level, such as a different fascia from V6 models, while wearing less aggressive tires. With that said, it’s the most affordable V8 powered muscle car on the market right now, and might have been a reason for a Q4 sales turnaround the Camaro observed in 2019. Peep the gallery below for more.

Muscle Cars & Trucks was founded by Manoli Katakis - an automotive media veteran that has been covering the latest car news since 2009. His journalism has uncovered dozens of major product changes, updates, plans, and cancellations long before automakers were ready to make things official.

Some highlights over the years of his reporting include the uncovering of the Zora trademark before anybody else reported on the coming of a mid-engine Corvette, as well as the dead-accurate reporting of the coming of the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2, two years before it hit the market, and even before the debut of the concept vehicle. This type of reporting has immediately continued here, with reports of the original seventh-generation Camaro plans being shelved, as well as what's in store for the Chevrolet Silverado.

Some of his work can be found on massive automotive media outlets, such as Motor1. He also has been a guest on the 910AM Radio Station with Detroit News auto critic Henry Payne, as well as the enthusiast-oriented Camaro Show podcast.

Over the years, Manoli has interviewed various automotive industry titans, leaders, and people that make things happen otherwise. These include figureheads such as GM CEO Mary Barra, GM President Mark Reuss, automotive aftermarket icon Ken Lingenfelter, Dodge firebrand Tim Kuniskis, along with various chief engineers of vehicles such as the Ford F-150 & Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro & Corvette, and many more.

At MC&T, Manoli is taking his journalism expertise, deeply planted sources, driving abilities, and automotive industry knowledge to new levels, covering more vehicles and brands than ever before. This is the place where you will continue to read groundbreaking stories about American performance vehicles, pickup trucks, and sport utility vehicles. Here is where you’ll also read insights and quotes from various automotive subject matter experts on the latest relevant products, as well as some of the latest official news from their manufacturers.

Fun facts: he also once beat Corvette Racing driver Tommy Milner in an autocross with a Chevrolet Bolt EV. The biggest vehicle he’s ever driven is a John Deere mining truck. Besides a go-kart, the smallest vehicle he’s driven has been a Hyundai i10. He’s also spent time in the cockpit of various American performance vehicle icons, including the fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, Dodge Challenger Demon, and Ford Mustang GT350R. He has reviewed dozens of trucks, SUVs, and performance vehicles over the years.

One of his favorite new vehicles on the market today happens to be the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison. He is also a card carrying member of the Sports Car Club of America, and regularly participates in Detroit Region autocross events.
