2017 Camaro ZL1 Brings Red Hot Style To NYC Auto Show

April 1st, 2016 by



Just when we think things can’t get any better, any faster, or any more amazing, Chevy comes along and proves us dead wrong time and time again – and, surprisingly, it’s not because of the new 2016 Chevy Malibu. This time it’s with the Camaro ZL1, an impressive and stylish modern muscle car, which – back in 2015 – was the fastest model to date with an impressive 580 horsepower, thanks to its 6.2L supercharged engine. But with last week’s introduction of the new 2017 Chevy Camaro ZL1 at the New York Auto Show, things have been taken to a whole different level – and we couldn’t be more thrilled with the results.

Bringing some of the most impressive aerodynamic styling updates and performance figures we’ve ever seen on a modern sport coupe, the 2017 Camaro ZL1 promises to provide the ride of a lifetime for anyone lucky enough to get behind the wheel of one of these show-stopping beauties. Freshly updated for the new model year and with more raw power at its disposal than ever, the new Camaro sets the standard for what a modern muscle car can be – and, going forward, what it should be.

Here’s a sneak peek at what Camaro lovers can expect from this enviable update to the ZL1 model line.


Pulse-Pounding Power Under The Hood

If you’re ready to take on the track with unparalleled power under the pedals, then the new Camaro ZL1 standard LT4 6.2L supercharged V8 offers a tightly-engineered and precise ride, as well as up to 640 horsepower for all the power you could ever need. Drivers can get comfortable with Chevy’s new paddle-shift 10-speed automatic transmission for seamless shifting on the track. Or, for additional control, drivers can opt for the reliable six-speed manual transmission instead.

The updates to the ZL1 also bring a precise sport-tuned suspension featuring Magnetic Ride technology, which senses the terrain up to 1,000 times per minute for constantly adjusting performance driving, while an electronic Limited Slip Differential helps to stabilize the vehicle and improve handling and balance. This all means that you and your Camaro will be able to easily dominate just about any track you take on with total confidence.


A Refreshed Aero Design

Of course, a powerful engine isn’t worth a thing if it’s not matched to an efficient, aerodynamic chassis – and with a longer, lighter, and more carefully designed frame, the ZL1 achieves just that. A full 200 pounds lighter than its immediate 2015 predecessor and with a low, long, refreshed design built to maximize airflow around the brakes and engine, this updated ZL1 is simply easier to push around the track – meaning better power output from that impressive engine. Plus, with a larger grille and wider vent opening in the front fascia, more cool air can reach your engine and help further boost your output for those tough days on the track.


Get Your Very Own Camaro ZL1

If you’re as anxious to get this new Camaro as we are, then you might be a little disappointed to find out that this model won’t hit the lots until late 2016 and will probably start in the ballpark of around $60,000. But for all that impressive performance power, we’ll happily wait it out in anticipation, and we think you will, too.

In the meantime, get in contact with DePaula Chevy and see what the friendly sales staff can do to help keep you informed about this cutting-edge model, and how to get yourself in one when they finally hit the lots.
