The lack of MRC option is the biggest disappointment, along with no rev match. I guess I thought rev match was mainly software.

Not if you think about why GM is offering the LT1. It's a low cost way to get the V8. If you want more of the goodies, you can have them. You can get MR shocks in a V8 Camaro.

They didn't come up with the LT1 so that you could selectively option down a 1SS. There is no way they would let you get an LT1 and make it a 1SS by checking option codes. It has to be something less than an SS.

As mentioned, can you imagine an LT1 1LE? That would simply make no sense. But we are talking about GM so who knows.

Hopefully, the LT1 will be the perfect buyer alternative to all those base Mustang GTs Ford is using to kick the Camaro’s butt in the annual sales race.

Well the way I see it is that Chevy is offering a lower cost alternative V8 Camaro to the SS after people have been asking for one which is good but won’t satisfy some folks! I can see by some of the replies that some want more options and will complain that they can’t get them on the LT-1. I commend the Camaro team that they offer a lower cost V8 Camaro for people that can’t afford or want a higher cost 1SS or 2SS but they won’t be able to please everyone. My opinion is if you want more options then buy a 2SS!

All of this sounds pretty reasonable. Like others said, if too many options were offered, you may as well get a 1SS at that point.

This seems like a good option for people who want a basic V8 who can put their own mods onto it.

I hereby proclaim the 2020 LT1 Camaro will be the fastest V8 NA Camaro ever built. Except for maybe a '69 ZL1 on slicks.

And also good match for the base Rustang GT.

More discussion here.

I started reading this list, and wondered how much the weight would come down, and then there's the answer right at the end! lol

Cool! So a standard optioned LT1 will weigh what....somewhere in the high 3,500 to low 3,600 lb range? Pretty sure the standard 1SS with manual was coming in around 3,650 to 3,675 lbs.

How much of a weight advantage would that be compared to a base Mustang GT?

EDIT: Got it: https://media.chevrolet.com/media/us...2019.tab1.html

According to the above link , a 2020 LT1 Camaro would weigh 3,619 lbs. That would give it right around 100lbs less than the base GT.

Can confirm all of these as saw one at the Detroit grand prix. Also doesn't have the extra air vents to cool the front brakes. but I don't remember the antenna fin being black

Perhaps instead you should make a more convincing and detailed argument - in this thread or the other - for what the difference between the LT1, the hypothetical LT1 1LE and/or highly optioned-up LT1 you want, a 1SS, and a 1SS 1LE would be in price and specs.

Your analysis of why it would be economical for GM to have two cars trims which are (or could be ordered to) have virtually identical equipment would help, too. No where else in the Camaro lineup is that currently possible.

That said, IF rev match is indeed just software, I would agree with you that feature could have been left in the LT1 without adversely affecting the rationale for the LT1 which Number 3 has outlined. Unless they've found that they can save money by using the paddle-less LT-spec wheel on the manual LT1, rather than the manual SS wheel with paddles?

Considering the LT1 has standard brakes, no cooling for the track, no MRC and no rev match, this seems to me to be quarter mile bruiser. Light/stripped car with big engine that goes straight. Now I'm wondering if we're going to see a $45,000 2021 LT4.
