The ZL1 is Chevy’s Camaro entry into the new American horsepower wars that was kicked off by Dodge with the Hellcat and Scat Pack versions of its Challenger and Charger. With a 6.2-liter V8 pushing 650 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels through a six-speed manual or 10-speed auto, the ZL1 is currently the most potent Camaro Chevy offers from the factory. The Camaro line was refreshed in 2019 with an updated appearance, new tech, and new options, so the 2020 cars won’t change all that much.
The Camaro, like many GM products, has several trim levels and options packages, driving the total number of possible combinations into the stratosphere. Things are a bit simpler in the ZL1, as buyers have the choice of a hardtop or convertible, a few premium paint colors, and the option to add a $7,500 1LE Track Performance Package. The upgrade includes a rear bench seat, carbon fiber hood weave, 19-inch wheels, performance suspension, and red brake calipers.
The Camaro ZL1 will soon see its stiffest competition yet, as Ford’s Mustang GT500 has been updated this year with over 700 hp. We expect pricing for the ZL1 to stay close to $64,195, where the 2019 model started.
