The ZL1 is not only Chevy’s fastest Camaro, it’s also the simplest product in the Camaro catalog. With a single engine choice, two transmissions, and just one options package, it’s a far less complicated experience than the rest of the Camaro line, where there are seven trims and endless options to choose from.
That engine? It’s a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 with 650 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. The ZL1 Convertible also comes standard with safety equipment that is either optional or unavailable on other Camaro models. The package includes blind-spot monitors, forward collision warnings, rear park assist, lane change assist, and a rearview camera.
The Convertible misses out on the single 1LE options package that the ZL1 Coupe can add. The Performance Package includes upgraded suspension, brakes, special wheels, and carbon fiber accents. This leaves the ZL1 Convertible with a single options package that includes all-weather floormats and weather protection.
Though it’s part of the ZL1 family, buyers wanting the true performance Camaro will likely look at the Coupe with a 1LE package. In either case, competition comes in the form of the Dodge Challenger and Ford Mustang. We expect the new model year’s pricing to remain close to the $68,000 we saw in 2019.
