After the complete redesign of the Camaro for the 2016 model year, the Camaro ZL1 joins the Camaro lineup as an all-new model for 2017. Among the many upgrades from the standard Camaro are the ZL1's supercharged 6.2-liter V8 LT4 engine and available paddle-shift 10-speed automatic transmission. To help keep the driver and front passenger firmly planted in their seats in the corners, the 2017 Camaro ZL1 gets new RECARO performance seats featuring suede inserts as standard.
The 2017 Camaro ZL1 model's aggressive new styling cues are certainly backed up by its potent powertrain that lurks beneath. Up front, a new front air dam, grille and bumper allow greater airflow into the monstrous engine than the standard Camaro. New 20" forged aluminum wheels are also standard equipment and contribute to the Camaro ZL1's low, aggressive stance and further improve the Camaro's handling. Out back, four massive exhaust tips protrude from the rear bumper and deliver a powerful growl, whether at idle or at the ZL1's 6,000 RPM redline.
If 650 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque excite you, then the 2017 Camaro ZL1 will not disappoint. If it is hard to imagine that amount of power in such an agile sports car, then perhaps you need to get your very own 2017 Camaro ZL1 to experience this thrilling level of performance for yourself on a regular basis! With its supercharged 6.2-liter V8 LT4 engine, complete with intake and exhaust tuning, the Camaro ZL1 is the most powerful factory Camaro model ever produced. Mated to the exceptionally powerful motor is your choice of the standard 6-speed manual gearbox or the all-new paddle-shift 10-speed automatic; both transmissions provide Camaro ZL1 drivers with a fully engaged driving experience.
