Leave Other Drivers in Your Dust: 2017 Camaro ZL1 Performance

The 2017 Camaro ZL1 is the most powerful Camaro ever built. This model was designed for the track, with unparalleled performance options and a sleek new design. The 2017 Camaro ZL1 performance sets it apart from most other models on the road, making it stand out on both the track and the highway.

According to Chevy, the ZL1 can do 0 to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds. You heard right. It can even do a quarter mile in 11.4 seconds (at 127 mph). This Camaro gets up to 650 horsepower thanks to a supercharged LT4 6.2-liter V8 engine. Compared to the 1LE, the ZL1 is a speed demon.

“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.”

The ZL1 didn’t just add a big engine; this model has some other upgrades. This includes a 220-pound weight reduction, which also increases handling and fuel economy. It gets the SS FE3 suspension with Magnetic Ride dampers, as well as a limited-slip differential. There’s nothing quite like the new ZL1.
