The 2017 Chevrolet El Camino made its comeback with an all-new iconic and modern look. It is a truck-like car that suits people who don't need a full-size truck's capabilities as well as to those who don't like the overall look of large pick-up trucks. The new car from Chevrolet is getting a better handling, performance, and fuel economy.

The car's front end to the B-pillar is similar to the Chevrolet Camaro. The lines going over the rear fender is C-shaped, taillights and headlights are lifted straight, and the quad exhaust doesn't differ that much from Camaro. Camino's entrance grille is revamped to present a striking look, and the air-intakes are also redesigned to be bigger than ever before. The car trims are offered in various stages, which include tremendous location, black knight, and royal knight with wheels that are made to order.

As for the model's interior, it also has a little bit of similarity to Camaro since the General Motors (GM) Company likes to use the same parts for their line-up regardless of the price difference. The 2017 Chevrolet El Camino is a two-seater vehicle that is equipped with a new air-conditioning procedure backed with auto adjustments. The car also features a new dashboard configuring for a much better driving experience, fantastic audio program, Wi-Fi connectivity, navigation, cruise control, and the primary safety airbags.

The 2017 Chevrolet El Camino comes with a V6 engine that has a 3.6-liter of capability that offers a 281 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque which is obviously a bit off. However, one can get the massive 6.0-liter V8 engine that can provide over 361 horsepower and 360 lb-ft of torque.

The base model can cost up to $30,000. And for the larger trim amount, it will cost the buyers a lot more money to get one.
