Chevrolet El Camino is a coupé utility vehicle that was produced by Chevrolet between 1959–60 and 1964–1987. Unlike a pickup truck, the El Camino was adapted from a two-door station wagon platform that integrated the cab and cargo bed into the body.

Introduced in the 1959 model year in response to the success of the Ford Ranchero coupé utility, its first run lasted only two years. Production resumed for the 1964–1977 model years based on the Chevelle platform, and continued for the 1978–1987 model years based on the GM G-body platform.

Although based on corresponding General Motors car lines, the vehicle is classified and titled in North America as a SUV. GMC‘s badge engineered El Camino variant, the Sprint, was introduced for the 1971 model year. Renamed Caballero in 1978, it was also produced through the 1987 model year.

Back in the day, the Chevrolet El Camino was a noble and innovative thought. Combining a truck with a car seemed to provide the ultimate all-around vehicle. However, the car/truckfusion didn’t hang around too long as the car would die off and never be heard from again as of the year of 1987 after living a life lasting less than 30 years. You may have seen renderings of a ‘new Chevrolet El Camino’ based on the Chevy Camaro popping up in your internet feeds.

 

Evidently, the word has been spreading through the Internet that, hey!, Chevy is making a new El Camino and there’s renderings and everything! This Is False! a new El Camino is more than likely never going to ever happen again.
