Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 2017 Finally Arrives
  • The Chevrolet 2017 Camaro ZL1 is finally here!

The new Camaro features a powerful 6.2 liter V8 engine capable of producing 640 hp.

Chevrolet just decided to release all the details of its new 2017 Camaro ZL1. The new Camaro features a sophisticated 6.2 liter V8 engine. The bonus is the engine now comes with more supercharger, which is optional.

Even the automatic transmission comes with two more speeds. The increased speed of the 2017 Camaro makes it better than even before. The ZL1's Corvette Z06-sourced supercharged engine is capable of 640 horsepower.

Similarly the torque is 640 ft-lbs mated to either a six-speed manual or all new ten-speed automatic. The Chevrolet 2017 Camaro ZL1 is expected to arrive in showrooms by 2018.

The ZL1 comes with the expected magnetic ride suspension and the limited-slip differential. The ZL1 also features some carbon fiber work on the hood which acts as a heat extractor.

The grille of the ZL1 features an updated ‘flow-tie’ aerodynamic magic emblem. According to Chevrolet, the ZL1 is 200 pounds lighter than the previous model.

The new Chevrolet also features 60 more horses and 80 more lb-ft of torque than its predecessor. All in all the mixture is a scrumptious offering for the auto industry by Chevrolet. 

“The design supports the Camaro ZL1’s exceptional performance and does so with compelling style,” said John Mack, Camaro exterior design manager. “From every angle, the elements coalesce to give the car a purposeful, super aggressive attitude.”

According to Chevrolet the Camaro ZL1 is designed to excel at everything. The ZL1 is a 2+2 coupe which offers incredible acceleration, handling and braking.

“The Camaro ZL1 is designed to excel at everything,” said Mark Reuss, executive vice president of Global Product Development.

“It’s a 2+2 coupe offering incredible performance – acceleration, handling and braking – with the highest levels of technology and perfect chassis damping, making it suitable for everyday driving. It will compare well to any sports coupe, at any price and in any setting.” 

The new ZL1 also offers the highest levels of technology making it suitable for everyday driving. 

“Driving the Camaro ZL1 is best described as ‘fast with finesse,’” said Reuss. “It is beautifully balanced, with perfect damping and isolation for optimal performance and driver confidence in virtually any situation – from the Pacific Coast Highway to Willow Springs to Pomona.”

Chevrolet did fail to mention the price tag and the speed statistics for the new ZL1, but all will be revealed in time. 

The 2017 Camaro ZL1 will go on sale late this year.
