The Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 50th Anniversary Edition is a high-performance version of the Gen 6 Chevrolet Camaro pony car.
The 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 is a high performance version of the Gen 6 Camaro, with a supercharged 6.2 L (6,162 cc) V8 from the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 (C7). It features a lower grill opening for improved cooling, a front splitter, and a carbon hood insert which removes hot air from the engine compartment. It also features wider front fenders to accomodate wider tires for improved handling, unique rockers, and Magnetic Ride suspension.
Transmission choices are either a rev-matching 6-speed manual transmission or a new 10-speed 10L90 automatic transmission developed by General Motors in collaboration with Ford.
This model should not be confused with its track-focused version, the Camaro ZL1 1LE, which features Multimatic spool-valve shocks (similar to the previous generation Camaro Z28), a front splitter, dive planes, a rear wing, a 60 lb. weight reduction, and wide "Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar" tires.
