2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE: An even faster pony tries to steady sales

Pony car sales aren’t going well, so maybe there will be some great deals on this new Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE, which looks mean and is even faster.


The Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE has a supercharged 6.2-liter LT4 V8 with 650hp (485kW) and 650 lb-ft (881Nm), and 6-speed rev matching manual transmission.

There’s also lighter, wider forged wheels with Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar 3R tires, lightweight Multimatic DSSV adjustable dampers, thinner rear glass, and a fixed back rear seat. Carbonfiber is used for the rear wing, air deflectors, and dive planes.

Weight is reduced 60 lb (27kg) from the standard ZL1.

Standard features include Brembo brakes, dual-zone climate control, Bose sound system, heated and cooled front seats, and a heated steering wheel.

The Camaro ZL1 1Le goes on sale later this year, with price yet to be announced.
