The 2015 Chevrolet Camaro ZL, Redefining The Modern Technologically Advanced Muscle Car
Published February 17, 2015
A more muscular car for enjoying the ride:
ZL1 is the new performance oriented model by Chevrolet for its brand Camaro. It is quite similar to the model 2SS but adds some more features to enhance its performances. These features include the new V8 engine, 6 piston fixed Brembo brakes in the front and 4 piston rear calipers, and 20- inch forged aluminum alloy black painted 10 spoke wheels with special summer tiers and returned power steering. Once we take a sneak peek at the features we find out why the 2015 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 has become so popular immediately coming to the market.
It can be said that the 2015 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 is a more muscular car and it is the most technologically advanced one among the Camaro models. It was built keeping in mind the requirements of the tracks and therefore when you tap the accelerator once you would understand the power of the all aluminum 6.2 L new supercharged V8 engine. It is known to provide 556 pound feet of torque and 580 horsepower to the car. There is no other car in the market that can match its power. It is no longer a humble car, but now it has the power to take on plenty of supercars in the market. It is so addictive to enjoy the smooth rush that is provided by the engine.
Still, it is great to have it as a daily driving car. However, the power is just the beginning. The next is the world-class braking system which is known as Magnetic Ride Control™ which works in tandem with a 4-wheel independent suspension. The Coupe model of the car comes with a Performance, Traction Management where you are given the choice of having five performance settings so that you can adjust to the track conditions and also the experience of the driver and the vehicle. It also gives you a six-speed manual standard transmission along with the option of six speed automatic transmission. It would accelerate from 0 to 60 mph within 4.4 seconds. If you are taking the manual transmission, then the fuel mileage is 16 mpg and with automatic transmission it is 14 mpg.
When it comes to the exterior it seems that the objective of ZL1 is similar to the other models of the car and that is to provide maximum cooling along with minimum lifting. It comes with a carbon-fiber air extractor on the hood and with front and rear fascias. These are provided to increase brake cooling and the engine cooling and provides down force too. The unique rear spoiler is good enough to add 150 pounds more down force. There are rockers which are shaped for allowing maximum airflow and helping more in the down force. There are two turbulence-quelling panels attached beneath the car hidden from the view.
A look at the interior would amaze you. You would find suede upholstery inside and heated front seats. The small flat bottomed steering wheel is covered with leather. The Color Driver Information Center, Color Head-Up Display and the SiriusXM Satellite Radio with 12 months subscription offer are the other packages that make the interior more interesting.
