We finally know how much it’ll cost to buy the 2017 Camaro ZL1. It’s the most powerful production Camaro ever thanks to a supercharged LT4 6.2-liter V8 engine good for 650-horses.
Chevrolet confirms the 2017 ZL1 coupe model starts from $62,135. The convertible starts from $69,135. Both prices include a destination charge.
The prices are for ZL1 models with the manual six-speed transmission. So there is still one big question mark and that’s how much Chevy will charge for the available 10-speed transmission, developed jointly with Ford. Chevy notes the 10-speed was used to achieve its ZL1 performance numbers:
- 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds
- Quarter-mile in 11.4 seconds at 127 mph
- 1.02 g max cornering
- 60-0 mph braking in 107 feet
Chevrolet is also releasing 1LE track package pricing and performance numbers for the more budget-friendly 2017 Camaro LT and SS models.
The 1LE is a package you can add to either the LT V6 for $4,500 or the 1SS V8 for $6,500. For LT coupes, the 1LE package features the Camaro SS’s FE3 suspension, while the 1SS benefits from the ZL1’s electronic limited-slip differential and FE4 suspension with Magnetic Ride dampers. Performance figures are below.
- 0-60 mph in 5.2 seconds with Camaro LT 1LE
- 0-60 mph in 4.2 seconds with Camaro SS 1LE
- 0.97 g max cornering with Camaro LT 1LE
- 1.02 g max cornering with Camaro SS 1LE
- 60-0 mph braking in 112 feet with Camaro LT 1LE
- 60-0 mph braking in 107 feet with Camaro SS 1LE
- 230-pound weight reduction (SS 1LE to previous model)
Chevy hasn’t released starting prices for the new LT and SS, but the 2016s started around $27,000 and $37,000 respectively. So both are needless to say quite a bit cheaper than the ZL1, even when you tack on the 1LE package.
