2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 officially revealed
Chevrolet didn’t wait too long into the Camaro’s lifespan this time to reveal the all-new 2017 ZL1. It comes with more power than the previous model, along with a new transmission.
The exterior of the Camaro ZL1 has a more aggressive look, with a new grille, larger front splitter, new hood with a heat extractor, wider front fenders, new side skirts and bigger rear wing. It rides on 20-inch aluminium wheels, wrapped with Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar tyres.
The interior remains largely the same aside from the Recaro sports seats, flat-bottomed steering wheel, new shifter covered in suede upholstery, red contrast stitching and lots of ZL1 badging all over the cockpit.
Under the hood is the supercharged 6.2-litre “LT4” V8 engine, good enough to produce 640 hp and 867 Nm of torque. Power is delivered via a 6-speed manual or an all-new 10-speed automatic transmission. No performance numbers have been released yet.
Other performance mods include the “Magnetic Ride” suspension, Brembo brakes, electronic limited-slip differential, Performance Traction Management system, a Driver Mode Selector, and a launch control function.
The 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 could arrive in the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and other GCC countries by the end of the year.
