• Prototype Hunting: Chevy’s Most Badass Snow Plow? 2019 Camaro Spied in the Colorado Rockies [Video]

    We recently spotted the 2019 Chevrolet Camaro in the Colorado Rockies, where it took on the 11,990-feet summit of Loveland Pass.

    A little over a week ago, Chevrolet announced the revised 2019 Camaro, complete with new front and rear fascias. Not only that, but they’re adding more tech, as well as a “1LE” package for the 2.0-liter turbo model. But the 2.0-liter turbo isn’t the engine that represents the Camaro as a muscle car, now is it? Many folks out there want to hear the thundering bellow of the 6.2-liter LT1 V8 instead. Yesterday, we actually spotted the 2019 Camaro SS testing out in the wild. Specifically, Chevrolet was testing the new Camaro up Loveland Pass, about an hour west of Denver.

    Take one look at the front and you wonder if, in fact, the 2019 Camaro would be the most badass snow plow out there. Okay, it may not have the best ground clearance, and it may be rear-wheel drive, but it still looks like fun. Speaking of rear-wheel drive, we know the 2019 Camaro will carry the same powertrains as the current version. That means a 275 horsepower 2.0-liter turbo and an available 3.6-liter V6 on LS and LT models, up to a 6.2-liter LT1 V8 on the SS and LT4 V8 on the ZL1.

    2019 Camaro SS = best snow plow?

    This particular prototype looks and sounds like the SS model, with the 455 horsepower V8. Now, we caught the car stalling at the summit of Loveland Pass, so we had the opportunity to hear the driver start the car in the video above. When we caught up with the car again later down the mountain, we had the opportunity to see how the Camaro works as a snow plow. Apart from that, we got up close and personal with just how different the 2019 Camaro looks. Bear in mind this is a prototype, but its overall shape does demonstrate what all has changed on the front and rear end.
