New York: Chevrolet is bringing two more powerful Camaro ZL1s to market for the 2017 model year and is displaying them for the first time at the New York International Auto Show.
The 2017 Camaro ZL1 is powered by a new supercharged 6.2L V8 engine that generates 640 hp and is mated to either a six-speed manual transmission or to an all-new 10-speed automatic. That is 60 horsepower more than the 2016 model and is enough power to put it into the same category as the Dodge Challenger and Charger models with Hellcat engines that generate 707 horsepower.
“The Camaro ZL1 is designed to excel at everything,” Mark Reuss, GM’s executive vice president of global product development, said in a news release. “It will compare well to any sports coupe, at any price and in any setting.”
Chevrolet says the new ZL1 is more aerodynamic than the outgoing model and performs better. It has a lower grille opening that provides greater airflow than the Camaro SS, and the upper grille incorporates a new version of the “flow-tie” open bowtie insignia.
There’s also a new hood, with a carbon-fiber insert and heat extractor that pulls hot air from the engine compartment.
Chevrolet also has included a larger front splitter, unique rockers, a wing-style rear spoiler and wider front fenders — all tuned to improve aerodynamics for greater high-speed stability.
The 2017 Camaro ZL1 goes on sale late this year.
