Changes for the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro
The Chevy Camaro was fully redesigned for the 2016 model year, bringing a fresh new look and exciting new performance options to this perennial favorite. It’s clear that GM isn’t a surface level update, because the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro brings a variety of unique features to the muscle car segment, from a new ZL1 6.2L V8 powertrain to a limited edition 50th Anniversary model. Find out about these exciting changes to the 2017 model year before taking the Camaro for a spin at Tom Gill Chevy in Florence, KY.
Camaro ZL1 High Performance Trim
All new this year is the 2017 Chevy Camaro ZL1 performance trim. Under the hood you’ll find a supercharged LT4 6.2L V8 engine that comes mated to a 10-speed automatic or six-speed manual transmission that pumps an estimated 640 hp and 640 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels. It’s more than just sheer power that makes this supercar so exciting. The Camaro ZL1 also adds sophistication and agile handling thanks to its 20-inch forged aluminum wheels and a performance tuned suspension with an electronic limited-slip differential. You’ll also get an advanced cockpit with RECARO sport bucket seats and a gauge cluster arranged with performance in mind.
Teen Driver Mode
The 2016 Chevy Camaro was already offered with a Teen Drive mode that allowed parents to set speed limits and stereo volume limits for their teenage driver, valet driver, or anyone else behind the wheel. This year’s model returns with a new Teen Driver function that lets you set precise driving parameters to keep the car from driving further than you want the driver to go.
50th Anniversary Edition
The Chevy Camaro is celebrating 50 years of American muscle, and GM is marking the occasion with a special 50th Anniversary Edition. It includes the RS package’s 20-inch wheels, xenon headlights, and stylish front grille, while also adding unique 50th anniversary badging, a front splitter that’s the same color as the body, leather and suede upholstery, and Brembo brakes to help provide precision control. You can get this next level package on both the 2LT and 2SS trim levels.
