For 2016, Chevrolet brought us the sixth generation Camaro SS which was the Motor Authority Best Car to Buy for 2016. In 2017, the Best gets Better. Chevy brings us two new stars for those who like to head to the track with their Camaro: the Camaro 1LE and the big boss, Camaro ZL1.
If performance is what you are looking for, the ZL1 is for you. Under the hood is the same 6.2 liter V-8 found in the Corvette Z06 and Cadillac CTS-V. With 50 more horses than the fifth gen, The ZLI packs 640 horses and 640 pound-feet of torque. The new Alpha platform sheds 200 pounds off the Camaro. The engine is mated with a six-speed manual transmission or the ZLI is available with a new ten-speed automatic tranie.
When Chevrolet says the #2017CamaroZL1 is the better than the best, they mean it. Other technology that makes driving a lean experience is traction control, launch control, drive mode selector and magnetically controlled shock absorbers for a more adaptive ride.
Just so you can understand the kind of power the ZL1 has, the standard Camaro has a turbocharged 2.0 liter inline-four with 275 horses and 295 lb-ft of torque. The 3.6 liter V-6 has 335 horsepower. The SS has a 6.2 liter V-8 has 455 horses. So, it should be clear that the new ZL1 is not for the faint of heart. Its lap time on the track rivals the 997 Porsche 911 GT2 and GT3.
