Alterations to the 1979 El Camino amounting to little more than a new divided grille. However, a small-block 267-cubic-inch (4.4-liter) V8 joined the options list and slotted between the standard 3.3-liter V6 and the optional 5.0-liter four-barrel V8. The 350-cubic-inch (5.7-liter) V8, developing 170 horsepower (130 kW) was again available from Chevrolet.
