Picture yourself in the new 2017 Camaro!

You’ll definitely be able to leave every other car on the road in your tracks when you drive the new Camaro ZL1. This is the most powerful Camaro ever built, with jaw-dropping performance technologies and design, as well as state-of-the-art engineering. Best of all, the new Camaro also has a stunning exterior. What’s not to like?

Performance

According to Chevy, the 2017 Camaro ZL1 performance is better than ever thanks to a smart powertrain. The 650-horsepower V8 is supercharged, helping the Camaro to do 0 to 60 in 3.5 seconds. That’s nearly two seconds less than the 1LE. Plus, with a quarter mile of 11.4 seconds at 127 mph, you won’t want to leave the driver’s seat.

“Building on Chevrolet’s well-established recipe for track-focused performance, the new 1LE packages expand the performance envelope of the Camaro SS and, for the first time, the Camaro LT,” said Al Oppenheiser, Camaro chief engineer. “You’ll be hard-pressed to find more track-capable cars in their respective classes for the money.”

Slimming down

Despite its muscle-car heritage, the new Camaro ZL1 isn’t just a massive engine strapped to a skimpy frame. Engineers also cut 220 pounds in weight to help increase speed and acceleration, not to mention fuel economy and handling.

This model also has a tuned suspension with Magnetic Ride damping and a limited-slip differential. There are few models that can give you this much performance without spending a fortune. Get a working-class supercar—get the Chevy Camaro ZL1.
