In Chevrolet’s lineup, everyone knows that Corvette is the biggest hit. However, it seems that things will be changing soon, especially with the recent introduction of Chevy Camaro ZL1. In fact, several experts even reached the consensus that the Camaro deserves to get the crown this time around.
Despite the fact that 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 and Corvette Z06 have the same 650 horsepower and 650 pound ft supercharged 6.2L of LT4 V8, the ZL1 enjoys the advantage of its amazing handling GM Alpha Platform. This new model also got summer tires, magnetic suspension as well as electronically locking limited slip differential. With this, it means that the ZL1 is not a one-trick pony vehicle this time around.
But, you can be sure that this can go fast in straight line as revealed by the drag race between the 1LE and ZL1. Aside from this gross horsepower display, experts praised the slick optional ten-speed automatic transmission and Camaro also did not experience the same overheating problems which was associated with the Corvette Z06, mainly because of the 11 heat exchangers found in ZL1.
To know if Chevy Camaro ZL1 is as good on the track as this is on the street, it was tested for some laps around the Willow Springs. Experts have great things to say about the ten-speed automatic and the handling of the car, which enables the driver to drift without any effort at all. With the two available transmission of Chevy Camaro ZL1, consumers may choose either 6-speed or10-speed manual versions.
The straight-line performance of Chevy Camaro ZL1 is just one of its numerous tricks. Its chassis features electronic limited-slip differential, the latest Magnetic Ride suspension, the brakes have 6-piston calipers, and so on. Aside from that, this ZL1 has more coolers compared to Bugatti Veyron.
