The Chevrolet El Camino is a pickup vehicle that was introduced between the years 1959 to 1960 and 1964 to 1987. The first model of the El Camino that was rolled out in 1959 remained in the market just for two years. This model was produced after the Ford Ranchero pickup became a hit in the market. After this, production of few models began but got discontinued soon after. Finally, Chevrolet put an end to the Chevrolet El Camino permanently in late 1987.
Chevrolet El Camino – We Waiting for a Comeback:
We have not yet received any authentic confirmation from the official Chevrolet website about the comeback of the new model, but according to an online source, the company is planning to bring back its classic production and Chevrolet has also publicized about the look of its SS edition. Rumors were making rounds since years that the Chevrolet El Camino will make a comeback in the market very soon but there were no official announcements. Now, web source claims there is strong evidence to the fact that Chevrolet might be staging a comeback from the El Camino.
There were certainly many people who were fond of this pickup vehicle and still want it to return in the market with a trendy design in line with today’s aesthetic standards. Rumors suggest that the vehicle will return with a completely different appearance this time around. Specifications of the pickup, like the interior and exterior, are also out, but again, the information is still not backed by the company.
Since the comeback of the new Chevrolet pickup version is unofficial yet, we make no definitive claims about the specs. According to the source, the following are some rumored specifications of the new SS El Camino version.
Exterior and Interior Design:
The Chevrolet El Camino will be produced with an entirely new and trendy design. The manufacturer will try to retain its flagship appearance yet keep it fresh according to new age standards. Major changes will be made to the bumpers of the vehicle while the advanced suspension will give a boost to the road power of the pickup. The new El Camino is said to have a large wheel, with alloy rims that will help the car reduce its weight. This feature will give a boost to the performance of the car as well. Rumor has it that the new SS version will be sportier, with a futuristic appeal.
The old legendary Chevrolet El Camino did not have a fine looking interior as compared to its outer look. But the new edition will be more upgraded from the inside as well. It will have a contemporary feel to it and will make the car a revolutionary one. The leather seats that will be incorporated in the newer version will make the drive very smooth and comfortable. Plus the vehicle will be equipped with modern day technologies like Bluetooth, USB charger and a touch screen on its dashboard.
Chevrolet El Camino – Engine:
Rumors about the new engine are also making rounds that the new SS version will be supplied power by the power train. But the latest according to the sources is that the car will have 6.0-liter V8 engine which will produce 360 hp. Whether it’s a V-8 or V-6, the new Chevy will definitely turn heads as soon as it lands in the market, if it does that is.

The official launch date of the new Chevrolet El Camino is not yet finalized by the company. But many vehicle blogs and forums have been saying much about the new version.
