The Chevrolet El Camino SS is the high-performance model in the El Camino coupe utility lineup. It was manufactured between 1968 and 1972.

The 1970 El Camino SS strongly resembles the Chevelle SS. In 1971, its front fascia was redesigned.

The 454 El Camino SS was the most powerful model in its range and is noted as such in most muscle car fan communities. Its name literally means 'The Path' in Spanish.

Need for Speed: WorldEdit

The Chevrolet El Camino SS was released in Need for Speed: World on January 15th, 2012 as a Tier 2. Since August 22nd, 2012 it has been featured as a C class vehicle.

Despite its large size, the El Camino SS has great handling and only needs to brake in difficult corners, being on par with the 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 302 in that field. The El Camino SS also has great straight-line performance; its acceleration is on the same level as most high-performance B Class or C Class competitors and its nitrous boost is powerful. Its stock top speed is 162 mph (260 km/h) and 176 mph (283 km/h) when nitrous is used.

Need for Speed: The RunEdit

The Chevrolet El Camino SS appears as a Tier 1 vehicle in Need for Speed: The Run and is also available in various special trims.

The stock version of the El Camino SS is unlocked by default. It is an average performing car with an "Expert" handling difficulty as its cornering abilities are strongly influenced by heavy steering.

The El Camino SS is less prone to oversteer than the 1967 Chevrolet Camaro SS and a few other muscle cars although it has a lacking top speed compared to the rest of the Tier 1 vehicle range.

Special VariantsEdit

The El Camino SS is also featured as a Tier 4 vehicle. Both the "NFS Edition" and the "Cesar DeLeon Signature Edition", which is the vehicle used by the storyline character Cesar DeLeon, appear in this tier. They are unlocked in differently;

  • Cesar DeLeon Signature Edition: Win the rival race "Route 82" against Cesar DeLeon in stage 4.
  • Need for Speed Edition: Beat 20 Group Objectives.

The performance of both vehicles are identical. Their engine output is 735 bhp at 5,600 rpm, which is a high number for Tier 4. In terms of top speed (189 mph/304 km/h) and acceleration (0-60 mph in 4.2s), they can keep up with other cars and perform decently in most races. Like the stock version, they have an "Expert" handling rating.

A Tier 5 variant is included in the free Signature Booster Pack DLC. It is featured as the "Puppet Signature Edition."

The engine of the Puppet delivers 1025 bhp at 5,750 rpm. Regardless of this high performance figure, the Puppet accelerates from 0-60mph in 3.8 seconds and reaches a top speed of 210 mph (338 km/h).

These terms suggest that the Puppet is a slightly above average car. Since its handling difficulty is rated the same as seen on other versions of the El Camino SS, the Puppet might be outperformed in corner by lighter vehicles such as the Mazda RX-7 RZ "Nicholas Signature Edition."

TriviaEdit

  • The El Camino SS is fitted with a 5-speed gearbox in Need for Speed: World.
