No they actually stand for the models of the camaro. LS 1LT 2LT 1SS 2SS. If you check Chevy's site it will give you a detailed run down of what each model has. Enjoy.

No no I mean what does the LS stand for, like SS = super sport. LS=luxury sedan, licensed stud etc..
LT too..

And I also meant are they new for Camaro (I know z28 and ss aren't)

Trim level. Have you seen the LS on the deck lids of GM cars? The Type LT was a trim level in the 70s. The Berlinetta (spelling?) replaced it. It had more comfort features.

It is hard to confirm the actual meanings, but some have argued that LS signifies Luxury Sport and LT signifies Luxury Touring. Obviously, this would mean that the Z would have to have meaning in LTZ models of other GM cars. It would be safe to argue that the only real meanings being LS and LT are that they can be used to identify what level of Chevrolet the driver purchased. This works for passive advertising because onlookers who admire the quality of any LS model will find that that the better bargain may be the LT or that Chevrolet's LS models bear similar quality to competitors' superior models. Chevrolet's goal in marking the differences is to excuse its brand for any inferiority in the LS because it truly is the base trim, although GM has recently made an effort to make even the LS trim superior to competition models in certain cars and trucks, making the more affordable produce easier to sell.

The Camaro has never had a model labeled LS or LTZ in the past. In the past, it was possible to get a Camaro LT. Obviously, the SS and Z28 packages were more favored for their performance-oriented character. The RS was always desirable for its attractive appearance options.

LS is always the base of Chevy's. Like my Blazer LS it's got no power or cruise control.

This is actually the first LS that's loaded with power and CC as well as stabilitrak.

1LT is your next step up, normally these are just marked LT, then LTZ typically. 2LT really is about what LTZ would be

SS is Super Sport. I don't know if the L* letters are an abbreviation or not.

The Berlinetta had the power windows, cruise, wheels etc. most called it a girl's car because guys didn't want that stuff. You know, back when men were men It replaced the Type LT as being more luxury.

The RS, Rally Sport, was just an apperance option. My brother-in-law has a 1967 SS with the RS package. Even the Z28 could have the Rally Sport option.

Not really...most Chevy LS models have had power windows and door locks standard for some time now. Cruise control too.

LS models are basically the bare minimum you can get on a Chevy with it still being competitive. They can be thought of as the value-priced cars. They have all the standard amenities that you would expect to find in a modern car, but nothing more.

It isn't until you get into the LT models that you're able to start adding options, and usually the LT models are the most popular.

On regular Chevrolets, LTZ is the top trim level with barely any options due to the fact that most equipment comes standard. Usually the only options are upgraded sound systems or navigation/entertainment options.

None of these trim level designations stand for anything anymore. They're just letters used to differentiate between the trim levels.

I bought a 1976 RS New, yes it was only an apperence package. The hood and roof were painted black with a 3 colored stripe around it, Rally Wheels, and the spoiler and front air dam, and a tech.
