What We Know About the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1


If you have been waiting for the new 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, you’ve still got a bit of a wait, but it will be at Classic Chevrolet as soon as it makes its debut. For those who have the need for speed, this vehicle looks like it may have bigger wheels and aerodynamic bits, both upgrades from the sixth generation muscle car.

The newest model will have a different body kit which includes a lower front fascia, a rear spoiler, and may even have a hood scoop. The hood scoop is a guess as Chevrolet hasn’t yet removed the camouflage. Another difference is the four tail pipes that poke out of the rear of the Camaro; and these are larger than the tail pipes on the Camaro SS.

The 2017 model year ZL1 features the same architecture as the Cadillac ATS, which means that it’s a lot lighter than the 2015 model year ZL1. If Chevy puts the 6.2-liter LT4 supercharged engine in it, not only will the Camaro get a bump up in horsepower, but that horsepower will have a faster time slip because of the drop in weight. This engine in the Corvette currently makes 650 horsepower; however, it still remains to be seen if Chevrolet will use the same engine or a version of it. Even if the horsepower is bumped up to just 600, it’s a 20-horsepower increase over the outgoing ZL1.

It is expected that the 2017 Camaro ZL1 will debut in early 2016, possibly at the Detroit Auto Show. It will be released sometime in late 2016, after the new Camaro debuts.

Be sure to keep your eye on this spot for more information about the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 as it becomes available. Or, stop by Classic Chevy for more information as it becomes available.
