The new 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 and the track-bred 1LE model, both of which will go on sale later this year, are designed to deliver more powerful performance.
Featuring a 650-horsepower engine, the Camaro ZL1 can reach 60 mph in 3.5 seconds, a quarter-mile in 11.4 second at 127 mph, and 60 to 0 mph braking in 107 feet.
“The Camaro ZL1 offers supercar performance with daily-driver refinement, a combination that stacks up against any other sports coupe — at any price — around the world,” says Steve Majoros, director of Chevrolet marketing.
The Camaro LT 1LE can reach 60 mph in 5.2 seconds, while the SS 1LE can reach the same speed in 4.2 seconds. The LT 1LE can reach 60 to zero mph braking in 112 feet, and the SS 1LE can brake in 107 feet.
“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,” says Al Oppenheiser, chief engineer at Camaro.
The 2017 Camaro ZL1 will be priced at $62,135 for coupe models and $69,135 for convertibles. Prices include destination charge, but not tax, title and other dealer fees.
The 1LE package is a $4,500 MSRP option on Camaro V-6 LT coupe models, and $6,500 on the V-8 1SS coupe model.
