2019 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1

2019 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1

The overtly cartoonish, and yet most capable, American sports coupe available today, the 2019 Chevrolet Camaro has once again been subjected to the ZL1 treatment, with the Corvette's 6.2-liter LT4 doing duty under the long hood. The ZL1 1LE packs a supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 engine with 650 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. The new gearbox has its own 1LE-specific calibration, and the electronic limited-slip differential and performance traction-management system also get special tuning to work with the self-shifter.
