2020 Chevrolet Camaro Review

The 2020 Chevrolet Camaro delivers everything you want from a muscle car. No matter where you land in the lineup — from the accessible four-cylinder to the midgrade V6 to the raucous V8 — the Camaro delivers stirring performance and head-turning looks. The pricing is also reasonable for what you get.

Some may argue that performance is everything when it comes to muscle cars, but we contend that everyday convenience also plays a part. In this arena, the Camaro falls well short. First and foremost, outward visibility is terrible, leaving a lot of guesswork in almost any driving condition. The rear seats are tiny, but that's somewhat forgivable for the class. The infotainment interface can be awkward to use, and many safety features and driver assistants are either options or not included.

If you're one of those shoppers who places performance above all else, the 2020 Chevrolet Camaro is an ideal pick. But for those who need more livability and convenience, we suggest checking out the Dodge Challenger and the Ford Mustang before fully committing.

Edmunds’ Expert Rating
Rated for you by America’s best test team

Our verdict

7.4 / 10
Regardless of engine, the Camaro is the best-driving muscle car of its segment, edging out more expensive sports cars when it comes to behind-the-wheel thrills. Poor outward visibility and a tiny trunk limit its practicality as a daily driver. If you can live with these downsides, you'll be rewarded every time you drive it. If not, the Mustang and the Challenger deliver similar thrills with fewer flaws.

How does it drive?

9.0
This Camaro is a strong performer that blends speed with precision and enjoyment in a way that previous Camaros never did. The V8 is stout, and our choice if you want the full muscle-car experience, but even the V6 and four-cylinder are punchy. Most models will out-drag an equivalent Mustang by a slight margin, and the brakes are up to the task of getting it stopped in a hurry.

Handling feels more precise with the smaller and lighter engines, but the V8 with its stickier tires exhibits higher limits. The manual transmissions have great positive gates, and rev-matching ensures downshifts that are as good as a pro racer's.

How comfortable is it?

7.5
The base suspension delivers a supple ride. The optional Magnetic Ride Control suspension (V8 only) is more capable over a variety of surfaces. The ride quality is very good considering the Camaro's mission. All engines are quiet cruisers, but only the V8 sounds good when driven hard.

The well-shaped front seatbacks offer good lateral support without being confining, but the bottom cushion felt tight to some. We also like its effectively padded door and center armrests. Unsurprisingly, the back seat is cramped even for short drives. The climate control center vents are oddly placed in front of the shift lever where they excel at freezing or heating your hand while cruising.

How’s the interior?

6.5
Visibility remains a big concern, and it makes the Camaro harder to operate and park in tight places than it should be. Surprisingly, the view forward and the view to the sides are even bigger problems. It's very hard to place the Camaro on tight roads (watch that rock wall!) or in tight spots (watch that shopping cart!). Shorter passengers can't see over the dashboard.

Interior controls are arranged in an unusual way that comes with a surmountable learning curve. The forward half of the interior feels large provided you don't opt for the sunroof. In back, people of average height won't find much space, especially if the driver is tall. In true performance coupe fashion, this back seat is for kids only.

How’s the tech?

7.0
The Camaro is a little hit-or-miss in this category. There's a respectable level of tech features, and we like the infotainment system's quick reactions and modern aesthetic, but the screen is oddly angled on the dash. The base touchscreen is also on the small side, which is one reason to upgrade to the larger one that comes with navigation.

When it comes to active safety, the Camaro feels a decade behind due to meager options and absence of collision intervention and mitigation equipment. You must upgrade to higher trims for rear parking sensors, blind-spot monitoring and a rear cross-traffic alert system — things it sorely needs due to its terrible rear visibility.

How’s the storage?

5.0
At 9.1 cubic feet, the Camaro's trunk has not only the smallest volume in the segment, but it also has a tiny opening and a high liftover height. If you ever wondered why tourists who rent Camaro convertibles put their suitcases in the back seat, this is why.

Interior storage is minimal. The door pockets and under-armrest bin are tiny. At least the cupholders are of a fair size and mostly out of the way during shifting. And although the back seat may be useless for adults, it does allow for extra interior storage.

How economical is it?

7.0
The EPA rates the V6 automatic at 22 mpg combined (19 city/29 highway), the V8 automatic at 20 mpg combined (16 city/27 highway), and the four-cylinder automatic at 25 mpg combined (22 city/31 highway) rating. These figures are similar to other muscle cars.

Is it a good value?

7.5
The strong performance value really trumps all else here. The Camaro is the best driver's car of its type. There are some hard plastics that seem out of place in an otherwise pleasant interior. That said, the construction and assembly are strong with no creaks or squeaks.

From its mid-$20,000 base price to the well-equipped versions we tested (mid-$40,000s), the Camaro costs about the same as the Mustang. Features for the dollar are comparable too, be it the track packages or exterior styling upgrades, but performance is squarely in the Camaro's favor.

Wildcard

9.0
The Camaro delivers a surprisingly cohesive and involving driving experience that competes at a class above. The V8's sound is compelling and the tremendous thrust addictive. Handling with the V6 and four-cylinder models is honest and lithe, but the sound from either engine is hard to like.

Exuberantly styled, this low-slung coupe grabs attention, which may or may not be to everyone's liking. The potent V8 gives LT1 and SS owners bragging rights, but the V6 and four-cylinder also have boisterous personalities. Sort of a cartoon superhero.

Which Camaro does Edmunds recommend?

For the true muscle-car experience, we contend that it has to have a V8 engine. Thankfully, there's a new LT1 model that represents the least expensive way to get there. It's appointed similarly to the V6-powered 1LT trim but costs $3,000 less than the 1SS. To that, we suggest adding the optional Technology package to get the larger touchscreen.

Chevrolet Camaro models

The 2020 Chevrolet Camaro is available as a four-seat coupe or convertible, with 1LS, 1LT, 2LT, 3LT, LT1, 1SS, 2SS and ZL1 trim levels. The LS and LT models come standard with a turbocharged four-cylinder; a V6 is available. The LT1 and SS models have a V8, and the ZL1 has a supercharged V8. The 1, 2, 3 designations represent levels of equipment, but there are several optional packages and stand-alone items to help you customize your ideal Camaro.

The LS and LT models come standard with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine (275 horsepower, 295 lb-ft of torque). LT cars can be equipped with a 3.6-liter V6 (335 hp, 284 lb-ft). A six-speed manual transmission is standard across all trims, with an eight- or 10-speed automatic available as an optional extra.

Standard equipment on the base 1LS (coupe only) includes 18-inch alloy wheels, LED running lights, a limited-slip differential (with the manual transmission), a rearview camera, keyless ignition and entry, cruise control, eight-way power-adjustable driver's seat and four-way power-adjustable front passenger seat with cloth upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and adjustable driving modes. Technology equipment includes Bluetooth, OnStar connected services, 4G LTE Wi-Fi connectivity, a 7-inch touchscreen, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone integration, and a six-speaker sound system. Choose the optional eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters, and remote engine starting is included.

Additional gear on the 1LT (the base model for the convertible) includes a six-way power-adjustable passenger seat and satellite radio. An eight-speed (four-cylinder) or a 10-speed automatic transmission (V6 and V8) is available, equipping the 1LT with paddle shifters and remote engine starting.

The 2LT adds dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, and heated and ventilated front seats.

Both the 1LT and the 2LT can be equipped with the Technology package, which adds a nine-speaker Bose audio system and an 8-inch infotainment touchscreen with more connectivity features.

The 3LT comes with the Technology package, illuminated vanity mirrors in the visors, and a larger color information display in the gauge cluster. There's also a rear camera mirror, which displays on the rearview mirror, improving rear visibility at the cost of true depth perception. For 2020, the Convenience and Lighting package is now standard on the 3LT, adding heated and auto-dimming side mirrors, rear parking sensors, driver-seat memory functions, a head-up display, and a heated steering wheel, along with some aesthetic upgrades. This package also pads on active safety features such as blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert and forward collision warning.

The RS package has 20-inch wheels, LED lighting elements, a special grille and a rear decklid spoiler; it is available for 1LT, 2LT and 3LT cars. Adding the RS package allows you to opt for the Heavy-Duty Cooling and Braking package, which includes an external oil cooler, a higher-capacity cooling system and four-piston front brakes.

The 1LE Track Performance package (coupe only) can be had with either the V6 or the 2.0-liter turbo. It equips the Camaro with the contents of the RS and Heavy-Duty Cooling and Braking packages, sport-tuned suspension, 20-inch forged alloy wheels with wider summer tires, a mechanical limited-slip differential, a rear differential cooler, a track-cooling package, a dual-mode exhaust (with the V6 only), special aerodynamic spoilers, and a satin-black hood. Inside, you'll find a suede-wrapped flat-bottom steering wheel and suede-wrapped shifter. The Recaro front sport seats can also be added to the 1LE package.

If you have the 3LT with the 1LE package, you can opt for a performance data and video recorder, which both records video and data to an SD card and offers more performance data displays on the infotainment screen. Forward collision warning is removed if you go with the recorder.

The new LT1 model represents an entry-level trim for the 6.2-liter V8 (455 hp, 455 lb-ft). It comes with a six-speed manual transmission with rev-matching for downshifts (a 10-speed automatic is optional), 20-inch wheels, an engine oil cooler, upgraded four-piston Brembo front brakes, a mechanical limited-slip differential, and a performance suspension. The LT1 also gets a six-way power front passenger seat. Otherwise, it is similarly equipped as the supporting 1LT trim.

The 1SS builds on the LT1 with upgraded engine and transmission cooling, four-piston Brembo rear brakes, a Track driving mode, and a rear spoiler. Inside, you get an upgraded 8-inch infotainment system, an improved driver information display and nicer gauges. Otherwise, it mostly mirrors the LT1's equipment.

The 2SS includes the 1SS equipment plus most of the features from the 3LT trim along with unique interior accents and the contents of the Convenience and Lighting package. The 2SS also receives the rear camera mirror.

For the 1SS and the 2SS, the SS 1LE Track Performance package adds six-piston Brembo brakes, Magnetic Ride Control suspension with adaptive dampers, an electronically controlled limited-slip differential, different forged alloy wheels, upgraded performance tires, the Recaro sport seats, and everything else included with the LT's 1LE package.

Finally, the Camaro ZL1 has a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 (650 hp, 650 lb-ft), a six-speed manual transmission (a 10-speed automatic is optional), and launch control. All of the SS 1LE extras, minus the cosmetic differences, are also included. The ZL1 1LE Extreme Track Performance package adds 19-inch forged aluminum wheels with wider tires, special race-oriented suspension dampers, a carbon-fiber hood and rear spoiler, and dark-tinted taillights. With the ZL1 1LE package, a fixed rear seat that does not fold down is also standard.

Other available extras include a navigation system, a sunroof and a performance exhaust (all V6- and V8-powered models), along with a nearly endless catalog of aesthetic customization options.

4 out of 5 stars, A sportscar wrapped in muscle car clothes
FahrOut,
1SS 2dr Coupe (6.2L 8cyl 6M)

A quick note before I begin, I have the 1SS 1LE trim level Camaro, which is not available on the dropdown menu to set up a customer review. I have driven a pretty broad variety of sportscars in Europe and now in the U.S. The car I traded in for this Camaro is a 2008 Corvette base which had pretty extensive suspension modifications which I raced in autocross and track events across Western Europe. And even with the heavy modifications to the Corvette, the 1LE Camaro is decisively better. It corners harder, feels crisper and communicates to the driver better than my old Corvette, and in fact better than just about anything I have ever driven. The powerplant is great, but has a minor problem with electronic throttle lag. It feels as if the power comes on just a little behind the throttle input. My old LS3 never had this issue, with immediate power delivery on throttle input. Its not really annoying, but until I got used to it, I revved a bit high when throttle blipping to begin driving in first gear. The engine otherwise is fantastic, with great torque across a wide RPM band. Visibility is really as poor as the professional reviewer noted, and could have been a far less major inconvenience with technological aids which are becoming standard across a wide band of the new car market. Why this defect was not amended as part of the design process is beyond me. Still, with vigilance and practice, this problem can be minimized. Nonetheless, I deducted one star for this issue. Overall, I am immensely satisfied with this car, minor quibbles aside. The world class handling this car is capable of pays for all.

5 out of 5 stars, Camaro Crazy!
Sailor Xero,
2SS 2dr Coupe (6.2L 8cyl 6M)

Got this Camaro back in August, when I saw one driving down the road one day so, I went to the Chevrolet Dealership. After 10 minutes of test driving it, I have to say it was love at first site! Payed top dollar and now in December it has 5,129 Miles and I’ve had no issues what so ever! Drives like none other and powerful like none other. I would recommend this especially in the 2SS trim like I got if you want a Camaro (The ZL1 I mean is good but too much for the amount I’d like to pay). Like the title “Camaro Crazy!”.

5 out of 5 stars, Can’t get the smile off my face!
RJ,
2SS 2dr Coupe (6.2L 8cyl 6M)

Test drove the Camaro SS and fell in love. Superb horse power and acceleration, handles as good as my old BMW Z4!

3 out of 5 stars, Racy little thing
Unknown,
1LT 2dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)

Nice car, Exhaust sounds strange on acceleration.

Best Muscle Cars — Chevy Camaro, Dodge Challenger and Ford Mustang, But What Else?

Best Muscle Cars — Chevy Camaro, Dodge Challenger and Ford Mustang, But What Else?

ELANA SCHERR: Everybody on my Instagram is posting push-up challenges right now. Don't worry. You are not going to get any exercise posts from me. But that doesn't mean I'm not interested in building muscle. I just prefer burnouts to pull-ups. Then there's going to be giant burnout. This is going to be great. [TIRES SCREECHING] The term muscle car came about in the late '60s and early '70s, but you don't have to have a classic car to flex your muscle. This is my top 10 list of modern muscle cars. [MUSIC PLAYING] Oh, we need rules. If we're doing this, we need rules, right? OK. Horsepower divided by torque with cylinders-- how many, eight? American, four doors, two doors? Could be all-wheel drive. How long a burnout versus how fast? This is hard. In the old days, a muscle car was an American car company's most powerful engine in its sportiest mid-sized car. Think GTO, Hemi Charger, Big Block Chevelle. Then there were the pony cars, which is where you'd get your Challengers, Camaros, Mustangs, AMC, AMXs. Following those rules now would mean that this entire list would be nothing but Camaro, Challenger, and Mustang in various trim levels from base V8 to top of the line-- all great cars, but kind of a boring video. So I opened up the definition to all makes and models. These are my only criteria. Number one, it's available now or it was within the last couple of years. Number two, it's one of the most powerful cars made by the company, and driving it will make you laugh. I expect this list is going to make you very angry. Heck, it made me angry, and I wrote it. Let's get to it. [MUSIC PLAYING] Number 10, Tesla Model S Performance. Are you mad yet? OK, well, half of you get to commenting about how it's totally unacceptable for Tesla to be on a muscle car list, and the other half of you get to commenting about how it's totally unacceptable for it not to be number one on the muscle car list. Let me just tell you why I picked it and put it where it is-- so freaking fast. Sure, no V8 engine, no engine at all, but the Tesla's performance is out of this world. And it has a lot of kind of trick options for showing off, which is very muscle car era. It has a 0 to 60 time of 2.4 seconds. That's half, half of what it took a classic muscle car. Modern times, modern muscle. So why isn't the Tesla higher on the list? Well, first of all, price. It's $100,000 for the fastest one. And I don't think a muscle car has to be cheap necessarily, but it should be cheaper than that. Mostly, though, it's about sound. Sound is a really important part of the muscle car experience, and the Tesla just doesn't do it for me. Sorry. [MUSIC PLAYING] Number nine, BMW M8. Did I just say that price was a factor and then pick a car that cost $133,000? Yes, yes, I did. But blame Mark Takahashi. My BMW pick was the M5, which is also a 600-horsepower bruiser, but cost about $30,000 less. Then Mark came in, and he was like, no, M8 because it's a two door. It's more muscly. And you know, I just didn't have the energy to fight with him. I think he could take me, really. Think he could kick my ass. Point is, BMW makes some monster muscle. And the all-wheel drive M8 has a rear wheel drive mode so you can kick out the back end and do those very important burnouts. [MUSIC PLAYING] Number eight, Nissan GT-R. Why is the GT-R on this list? Well, it is brutally, stupidly fast. It has a 0 to 60 time that competes with the Tesla, and it can do it all day long. Plus, it's kind of unexpected in Nissan's lineup. It's funny to look back at the early days of Pontiac and Chrysler and realize how stodgy those brands were, and then bam, GTO. The GT-R is kind of Nissan's version of that. Why is it back at number eight? Well, the price, over $100,000. And it's a V6. Yes, it's a nearly 600-horsepower V6, but still it is missing some cylinders. Got to be a V8, new rule that I just made up right now. [MUSIC PLAYING] Number seven, Mercedes AMG E63 and the Audi S8. Yep, it's a tie. It's a tie of two cars that at first glance shouldn't even be on this list, but hear me out. It's a tie because both the Mercedes and the Audi are nearly 600 horsepower. The AMG is a little bit over, and the S8's a little bit under. Both are surprisingly fast, faster than anything that big has a right to be. Why are big luxury cars on my muscle car list? Again, if we go back to the muscle car era, the big engines came out of big cars. And the Chrysler 300 and huge cube Cadillacs were surprisingly powerful. Also, a lot of the popular cars like, say, Plymouth Roadrunner were available in wagon form like the Mercedes is. So you could get a big engine in an unexpected body, and that makes it a sleeper, which everyone knows is the coolest relative of the muscle car. This is an '81 Trans Am, so it made about 200 horsepower. It's not really impressive compared to the classic muscle cars. Made about 400. But in '81, there wasn't much that was making more. So I'm going to say '81 Turbo Trans Am, still a muscle car-- just little muscle. Number six, the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. [DOG BARKS] Yeah, you heard me. [MUSIC PLAYING] The Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is powered by the same engine that Dodge put in the Charger and Challenger-- 700 horsepower, 6.2-liter Hemi. So yeah, it is an SUV, but I mean, with all that horsepower and kind of a low stance, it's not really an off-roader. So if it isn't a muscle car, what is it? I'm making a new rule. Anything with a Hellcat engine is a muscle car. But nothing with four doors can be in the top three. Is that OK? Is that OK with you? Yeah? Going to be all right? He says it's OK. Number five is the Lexus RC F. It's the least horsepower on this list, with a 5 liter making 472 horses. What a world we live in when nearly 500 horsepower isn't bragworthy. The Lexus is on our list because it looks so muscly, with a long hood, and a short deck, and rear wheel drive, two doors. Plus, if you pay more, you can get a wing. And nothing is more muscly than a wing. Just ask anyone with a Plymouth Superbird. [MUSIC PLAYING] Number four Dodge Hellcat Charger. Dang those pesky rear doors. The Charger has the distinction of being the only car on our list to have been an actual muscle car by the strictest standards. Dodge introduced the Charger in 1966 and redesigned it in 1968 to the more famous Coke bottle design. In my opinion, that second-generation Charger is one of the prettiest American cars ever made. And it's also a very famous design. Seen it in movies like Bullet and Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry. It's also in a TV show. What was it called? Um-- Dukes of Hazzard? I don't know. I never heard of it. Today's Charger has too many doors to crack the top three-- see the rule that I made during number six-- but it's one of the best all-around cars on our list, impressive even in 392 trim and downright remarkable as a Hellcat. [MUSIC PLAYING] Onto the pony cars. I wish I could declare a three-way tie for the top three because each one is good in a different muscular way. At number three is the Chevy Camaro, obviously ZL1 because it's top dog with 650 horsepower. But a Camaro SS still lifts plenty of weight. The reason the Camaro isn't higher on the list is because the back seat is small, and visibility is bad. And those are sports car attributes. A proper muscle car shouldn't feel cramped. Number two is the Dodge Challenger Hellcat Redeye. With two doors and a couple of variants of the incredible Hellcat engine, what else could it be but the Dodge Challenger? I mean, Redeye gets the pick because 797 horses. But the 717 horse regular Hellcat is no slouch, nor for that matter is the 392, the 485 horses. The Challenger is the closest to a traditional muscle car on our list despite being based on a pony car design. It's roomy, comfortable, and happiest in a straight line rather than a corkscrew. That said, all the cars on this list are astonishing performers on a road course, as well as a drag strip. There's just no room for one-trick ponies anymore. [MUSIC PLAYING] And here we are, number one, the car that put the pony in pony cars, the Ford Mustang. For maximum muscle, we're going to go with the GT500 with its 760 horsepower and 11-second quarter mile times. But like the others in the top three, the base GT is good too, everything a muscle car needs-- horsepower, style, legacy, the ability to make you look powerful even if you've never seen the inside of a gym. That's why it's our number one. If you want more details on exactly why the top three ended up in the order that they did, watch our previous muscle car comparison from back in the days when we were all allowed to hang out together and go to race tracks. Oh my god, that was hard. I hate top 10 lists. I'm going to go online and start arguing with myself. You should too. Tell me what you'd put on your top 10 list. [REVVING]

Chevrolet Camaro vs. the competition

Chevrolet Camaro vs. Ford Mustang

The Mustang vs. Camaro rivalry is as contentious as any. As much as either Ford or Chevy loyalists will claim supremacy, these muscle cars are very evenly matched when it comes to price and performance. The Mustang does get an edge for its larger and more usable trunk as well as its outward visibility.

Compare Chevrolet Camaro & Ford Mustang features

Chevrolet Camaro vs. Dodge Challenger

The Challenger has remained in its current generation since its revival in 2008, receiving numerous updates along the way. It represents the larger choice among the select group of muscle cars. As a result, it's more comfortable and far better at accommodating rear passengers and cargo. That weight is a bit of a liability when it comes to performance, though.

Compare Chevrolet Camaro & Dodge Challenger features

Chevrolet Camaro vs. Dodge Charger

Think of the Charger as a four-door version of the Challenger. It has many of the same trim levels and performance models but gains some convenience points for the rear doors. If you have a hunger for muscle-car performance but regularly shuttle passengers, the Charger is likely your best bet.

Should I lease or buy a 2020 Chevrolet Camaro?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
