2017 Chevy Camaro ZL1

Chevrolet just released pricing information for the 2017 Camaro ZL1, the most powerful production Camaro in history, and the 1LE, a track-ready version of the iconic muscle car. Both models will hit dealerships sometime later this year.

The 2017 Camaro ZL1 boasts a 650-horsepower supercharged V8 engine, a 0-60 mph time of just 3.5 seconds, and a starting price tag of $62,135 for coupe models. Going topless will cost an additional $7,000, as convertible models are priced at $69,135. Those prices include destination charge but exclude tax, title, and other fees.

“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,” said Chevy marketing director Steve Majoros.

The 1LE package will be a $4,500 MSRP option on Camaro V6 LT coupe models, and a $6,500 upgrade on V8 1SS coupe models. LT coupe drivers will get the Camaro SS’s FE3 suspension when they upgrade, while 1SS coupe owners who opt for the 1LE package will enjoy the ZL1’s electronic limited-slip differential and FE4 suspension with Magnetic Ride dampers.

The 2017 Camaro LT 1LE can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 5.2 seconds, while the Camaro SS 1LE can hit 60 one second faster. The LT model also has 0.97 g max cornering compared to the SS model’s 1.02 g max cornering.

“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,” said Camaro chief engineer Al Oppenheiser. “You’ll be hard-pressed to find more track-capable cars in their respective classes for the money.”
