January 2, 2019
The ZL1 model, which is a high-performance variant of the Camaro SS was introduced in 2017. It features a lower grille opening for improved cooling, a new front splitter and a carbon hood insert which removes hot air from the engine compartment. It also features wider front fenders to accommodate wider tires for improved handling, unique rockers and Magnetic Ride suspension. Transmission choices are a rev matching six-speed manual or a newly developed 10-speed automatic. The 10-speed 10L90 transmission was developed in collaboration with Ford. General Motors manufactures its own version in its own factory in Romulus, Michigan. A more track-focused version known as the ZL1 1LE features Multimatic spool-valve shocks (similar to the previous generation of the Camaro Z28), a new front splitter, dive planes and a rear wing, and wide "Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar" tires. Weight was also reduced by 60 lb (27 kg) as compared to a standard ZL1. Performance figures include a 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h) acceleration time of 3.5 seconds, a 1/4 mile time of 11.4 seconds at 127 mph (204 km/h). The ZL1's official top speed is 198 mph (319 km/h).
