2020 Chevrolet Camaro SS gets an emergency facelift

The Chevrolet Camaro SS can join the Ford Falcon and Subaru Tribeca in the pantheon of vehicles to have its physical appearance rectified not too long after going on sale. For the 2019 model year facelift (below), which made its debut in April 2018, Chevrolet visually united the upper and lower grille portions of the SS by painting the space in between black, and moving the Chevrolet bow tie to this newly darkened section.
