An even more powerful Chevrolet Camaro ZL1s was displayed at the New York International Auto Show.
There is now a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 transmission under the hood that produces 640 horsepower. This is 60 horsepower more than the 2016 Camaro ZL1. The Camaro ZL1 is now in more direct competition with other muscle cars such as the Dodge Challenger and Charger.
GM’s executive vice president of global product development, Mark Reuss, states that “The Camaro ZL1 is designed to excel at everything…It will compare well to any sports coupe, at any price and in any setting.”
Not only will it compare and excel, but it was even referred to as a “monster” at the New York Auto Show!
The new Camaro ZL1 truly performs even better than the outgoing model thanks to more horsepower and increased aerodynamic structure. The lower grille opening now allows a greater airflow, and there is an added large front splitter, rear spoiler, and wide front fenders to help improve speed stability.
In addition, there is now a carbon-fiber insert and heat extractor under the hood. These features assist in keeping the engine compartment cooler. There is also an open bowtie insignia on the upper grille as a new design element.
We at Hutch Chevy Buick GMC of Paintsville, KY love all the extra ‘muscle’ added to the ZL1. This is one vehicle you will definitely want to test drive!
