The brand-new 2021 Chevy El Camino could make a huge comeback sooner than you think. Nowadays, it is a must for established manufacturers to offer at least a solid lineup of pickups and trucks. Luckily, Chevrolet already offers an impressive lineup. However, bringing back the old nameplate is a very popular move these days.
El Camino played a huge role in the company’s past and reviving this model will surely cause a huge splash. So far, everything is just a rumor but the latest information is more than promising. According to various reports, this pickup will go on sale later this year. El Camino will arrive with a completely new design, modern interior and more than solid performance.
2021 El Camino Comes With an Attractive Design
The upcoming 2021 Chevy El Camino will arrive with completely new exterior design. However, its well-known shape should be in the offer once again. Of course, El Camino will arrive with more modern styling and it will look sportier than any other Chevrolet’s pickup. Interestingly, but SS variant is also a possibility so you should expect even more sportiness.
The manufacturer is working on new bodywork, large air intakes, and unique wheels. Some parts will be shared with the Silverado model, but expect for El Camino to arrive with a unique appearance. Another interesting topic is the platform. The latest reports are suggesting the same architecture that underpins the Holden Colorado model.
Interior to be Based on Concept
The interior of the new 2021 Chevy El Camino will also look modern and sporty. We don’t know the exact cabin design yet, nor its seating layout. However, the interior will provide a lot of room for passengers and expect plenty of modern features. Moreover, we don’t know if Chevrolet plans to base the interior on one of the company’s concepts. We struggle to believe that the El Camino pickup will arrive with a lot of uniqueness.
Instead, most of the amenities and shapes will be borrowed from the other Chevrolet’s vehicle, most likely from the Silverado. Interestingly, the Camaro model could have a great impact on El Camino’s cabin. That includes the design of the dashboard and seats. While we wait for more details to emerge, we predict a clean design with a simple layout of buttons and controls.
First of all, reports about a 6.0-liter V8 that produces 300 horses are false for various reasons. Instead, new 2021 Chevy El Camino will most likely borrow an engine from the current Camaro model. It is a 3.6-liter V6 with 281 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. As for the larger 6.2-liter V8, it could power the rumored SS version of the El Camino.
Another possibility for the arriving pickup truck and its base model is a 2.7-liter turbo-four displacement. This engine can produce 310 hp and 350 lb-ft of twists. As for the transmission options, a 6-speed automatic is more likely than the newer 8-speed automatic gearbox.
2021 Chevy El Camino Price and Release Date
The price of the brand-new 2021 Chevy El Camino will start at around $30,000. Chevrolet will release more details closer to the release date. Speaking of which, El Camino will most likely arrive later in 2020 or at the beginning of 2021.
