Prototypes of the 2019 Camaro ZL1 and ZL1 1LE have been spotted on a truck transporter in Las Vegas.
Chevrolet recently revealed the facelifted 2019 Camaro, and now undisguised prototypes of the updated ZL1 and hardcore ZL1 1LE have been caught completely undisguised on a truck transporter in Las Vegas. A member of the Camaro 6 forum spotted the prototypes being transported and snapped a few photos of the track-focused muscle cars. Unsurprisingly, they look pretty much identical to the current ZL1, but feature unique wheels and redesigned headlights and taillights.
Curiously however, the ZL1 1LE prototype shown in the photo has a much smaller rear wing than the current model. Whether the low-rise spoiler will be the only option available for the 2019 1LE or if it will be offered alongside the larger existing wing remains to be seen. Since its reveal last month, it's fair to say the 2019 Chevrolet Camaro's refreshed looks have divided enthusiasts. The new grille, and front and rear fascias take some getting used to, and the new rounded taillights don't blend well with the Camaro's sharp design. Still, we reckon it will look better in the metal, so we'll reserve judgement for now. Getting back to the 2019 Camaro ZL1, chances are the powertrain will be carried over from the current model.
This means we can expect the same supercharged 6.2-liter V8 delivering 650 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. With this setup, the muscle car should be able to hit 62 mph in 3.5 seconds from a standstill and run the quarter mile in 11.4 seconds at 127 mph. The 2019 Camaro ZL1 and ZL1 1LE should arrive in showrooms before the end of the year.
