The 2017 Camaro ZL1 vs. the rest

Autos Apr 06, 2016 Ajax News Advertiser

The 2017 Camaro ZL1 is poised to challenge the most advanced sports coupes in the world in any measure with unprecedented levels of technology, refinement, track capability and straight-line acceleration.

Acceleration for the ZL1 is delivered with a new supercharged 6.2-litre V8 engine estimated at 640 hp, and either a six-speed manual transmission with active rev matching or an all-new 10-speed automatic.

Handling capability starts with the lightweight, stiffer structure of the all-new sixth-Gen Camaro, married with Magnetic Ride suspension and an electronic limited-slip differential. Standard technologies include Driver Mode Selector, dual-mode exhaust and advanced connectivity features.

The Camaro ZL1 goes on sale late this year.

Functionality defines the Camaro ZL1’s form, with the exterior shaped during more than 100 hours of wind-tunnel testing and on-track validation to improve aerodynamics and cooling for track use.

Accordingly, its exterior elements all play a part in managing airflow over, under and through the ZL1.

The lower grille opening, for example, offers greater airflow compared to the Camaro SS, and the upper grille incorporates a new version of the “flow-tie” open bowtie insignia. There’s also a new hood, with a carbon fibre insert and heat extractor that pulls hot air from the engine compartment.

A cohesive suite of performance technologies tailors ZL1’s performance for street and track.

Features include an updated Magnetic Ride suspension, Performance Traction Management, electronic limited-slip differential, Custom Launch Control and Driver Mode Selector. I

It also has a stronger power-to-weight ratio than its predecessor, weighing 200 lb less, while offering approximately 60 more horsepower and 80 more pound-feet of torque.

Finally – and unlike some competitors – there’s no need to purchase an optional package to make the ZL1 track ready. Track capability comes standard, with features including an impressive 11 heat exchangers for optimal powertrain cooling.
