2017 Chevrolet El Camino: legends never die


Legends never really do die, perhaps they just need a rest now and again. The iconic Chevy El Camino is to make a comeback if the rumors are to be believed. The new head of General Motors, Mary Barra goes on to say that the El Camino is a big part of Chevrolet’s history, going so far to say that the younger generation will be able to experience the same positive feelings that their parents once did.

2017 Chevy El Camino release date

While rumors surround the El Camino, no actual date has yet been made public; some say that the rumors are just hype, that the El Camino won’t go into production, others say that the model will be released in 2017. We seriously hope that the rumors are true, that the El Camino is indeed to make a comeback.

It is expected that the price for the base model will be around $20,000, and that the El Camino will hit the dealerships toward the end of 2016.

Release date: late 2016

However, in 2009, GM declared that they were to scrap the plans for assembly due to budget cuts and a company restructure.

In 2011, the GM management said that they were going to release a new El Camino, but not until 2015, even then, production had to be rescheduled to 2016 thanks to the economic downturn.
