Chevy is planning on bringing back the famous El Camino in 2020.

This car is very recognizable with its classic, muscle-car frontend and a pickup bed in the back. When this car was first made in 1959, it took off much faster than the Ford Rancher, which was introduced the year before.

Chevy stopped production of this car at the end of 1960 but resumed in 1964 for the high demand of this classic utility car. At the end of 1987, Chevy stopped producing the car because people weren’t buying it. So, they ceased production, but it is coming back and looks better than ever with a new sleek front end and plenty of storage space in the back.

The bed of the new El Camino is bigger than the old one in length and width. It still has the classic bench seat in the front to hold two people but also has an ergonomic design for comfort and leisure driving. This new car is said to have more visibility than its cousin the Camaro and the same sightlines as some of Chevy’s single cab truck with the back window so close to the driver.
