2020 Chevrolet Camaro Sees Return Of Redline Edition

The GM Fleet Order Guide Shares Initial Info On The Appearance Package

2016 Camaro Redline Concept

The 2020 Chevrolet Camaro is launching later this year, and details of the pony car have surfaced via the GM Fleet Order Guide. From there, dealers and consumers alike can find further information about what to expect, and one thing that stood out to us was the return of the Camaro Redline Edition.

For those that don’t recall, the Redline Edition appearance package was dropped from the lineup during the 2019 model year, but made an appearance on the 2018 Camaro, before the vehicle’s mid-cycle refresh set in.

Another appearance package available on the 2020 Chevrolet Camaro is the Shock and Steel Special Edition, which you can read about here.

Expect A Redline Edition On This Body Style

While pricing and official images haven’t been made public just yet, we can look to previous iterations of the Camaro Redline Edition to understand what to expect. The appearance package carried an MSRP of $2,495 when it was last introduced, and featured black front and rear bowtie emblems, red-accented grille, a hash-mark fender graphic, rear decklid blackout graphic, darkened taillamps, black mirrors, and 20-inch black aluminum wheels with a red accent (which kind of look like somebody left a piece of tape on them when seeing these wheels in motion). It was available on Camaro LS and Camaro LT trim levels.

The 2020 Chevrolet Camaro brings in several updates from the 2019 model year, in hopes to address a few criticisms the American performance car has dealt with this generation. Most notable is perhaps the “LT1” trim level. The 2020 Camaro LT1 fuses the interior content and exterior appearance of the more entry-level Camaro LT with the 6.2L V8 of the SS model mated to either a six-speed manual or 10-speed automatic transmission. It also features unique “LT1” badging, instead of the iconic “SS” badges on the sides.

The 2020 Camaro LT1 is the most affordable V8 choice in the Camaro lineup with a starting MSRP of $34,995, including destination, and will be offered in coupe and convertible body styles when it launches later this year.

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.

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.
