The Camaro's interior continues the familiar dual-binnacle-style instrument cluster hood, in a modern interpretation of classic muscle car style.

The new Camaro is offered with six different powertrain combinations, each designed to deliver improved performance and efficiency.  
The Camaro LT’s standard engine is a new 2.0L Turbo, rated at 205kw (275hp) and 400nm (295lb-ft) of torque. For power on demand, it offers a wide torque band with 90 percent of peak torque available from 2,100 rpm to 3,000 rpm, and maximum torque from 3,000 to 4,500 rpm. The 2.0L turbo delivers 0-60 mph acceleration in less than six seconds. 
An all-new 3.6L V6 is available in the Camaro LT, producing 250kw (335hp) and 385nm (284lb-ft) of torque, for the highest specific output of any naturally aspirated V6 in the segment. The engine incorporates a trio of technologies for uncompromised efficiency and performance, including direct injection, variable valve timing and, for the first time, Active Fuel Management (cylinder deactivation), which disables two cylinders under light throttle applications to enhance efficiency. 
The 2.0L turbo and 3.6L V6 engines are offered with a six-speed manual transmission or the all-new Hydra-Matic 8L45 paddle-shift eight-speed automatic transmission. It’s based on the Hydra-Matic 8L90 eight-speed, but scaled for the performance envelope of the smaller engines and offering an estimated 5-percent efficiency improvement over a comparable six-speed automatic. 
Camaro SS is powered by the 6.2L LT1 V8 engine introduced on the Corvette Stingray. About 20 percent of the components are specific for the Camaro’s architecture, including new, tubular “tri-Y”-type exhaust manifolds. It also offers advanced technologies such as variable valve timing, direct injection and Active Fuel Management (on automatic-equipped models) to help balance efficiency and performance. Output is SAE-certified at 339kw (455hp) and 617nm (455lb-ft) of torque, making it the most-powerful Camaro SS ever. 
The LT1 engine is available with a standard six-speed manual transmission – with new Active Rev Match technology that “blips” the throttle for perfectly timed downshifts – or the Hydra-Matic 8L90 paddle-shift eight-speed automatic. 
Each engine has been carefully tuned for a distinctive performance sound. All 2.0L turbo models feature active noise cancellation, which uses sound waves to cancel unwanted cabin noise. Models equipped with the available Bose audio system also feature engine sound enhancement, which amplifies the native sounds of the 2.0L turbo engine – and can be disabled based on the driver’s preference. 
Both the 3.6L V6 and 6.2L V8 feature mechanical sound enhancers – resonators that direct induction noise from the engine bay into the cabin. Both engines are available with a dual-mode exhaust, which features electronically controlled valves that bypass the mufflers under acceleration, delivering improved performance and greater sound levels. With the dual-mode exhaust, drivers can personalise the exhaust sound, from a “stealth” mode to the most aggressive “track” mode.

The exterior of the Camaro is more sculpted and more muscular effect that makes the new car look significantly lower and wider than before, even though it is within two inches of the exterior dimensions of the current Camaro.
Standard lighting includes halogen projector beam headlamps and taillamps. RS and SS models add high-intensity discharge, or HID, projector-beam headlamps and LED “signature lighting” daytime running lights – including a sweeping LED lightpipe integrated in the headlamp and an LED light pipe integrated into the front fascia. RS and SS models also feature LED lighting for the rear taillamps, including auxiliary LED light guides that mirror the shape of the front signature lighting.
Aerodynamic details include a subtle “air curtain” on the front fascia, which guides air around the wheels rather than into the wheelhouses, reducing drag. Also, the Camaro SS has a unique front fascia with integrated brake cooling ducts and a unique hood with functional air vents, which improve engine cooling and reduce front lift.

The interior retains the Camaro’s familiar dual-binnacle-style instrument cluster hood. 
The instrument cluster features analog instruments to provide the driver with essential performance information, as well as an available eight-inch-diagonal high-definition centre screen that can be configured to provide additional information including navigation, performance, and infotainment features. 
Another eight-inch screen, integrated in the centre of the instrument panel, serves as the interface for the enhanced, next-generation MyLink system. 
The new centre console and centre stack are designed with high performance driving in mind. For example, the heating and cooling controls are integrated into rings surrounding the air ducts. An electronic parking brake replaces the previous mechanical parking brake handle. This enabled the cup holders to be repositioned for improved range of motion when shifting in manual-transmission models. 
The optional LED ambient lighting system, integrated in the dash, door panels and centre console, offers 24 different colours, as well as fade and transition effects that spread across the interior. There’s even a theatrical “car show” mode that cycles randomly through the entire colour spectrum when the Camaro is parked. 
The ambient lighting is one of eight attributes the driver can adjust using the Camaro’s new Driver Mode Selector– accessed via a switch on the centre console. The system enables the driver to tailor the look, sound and feel of the Camaro to their preferences and driving conditions. Available adjustments include:
Electronic throttle progressionAutomatic trans. shift mapAutomatic trans. Performance Algorithm ShiftEngine sound management (if equipped with dual-mode exhaust)Electric power steering calibrationStabiliTrak – Competitive Driving and Launch ControlMagnetic Ride Control calibration (if equipped)Ambient lighting (if equipped)

The Camaro ZL1 returns for 2017 and is poised to challenge the most advanced sports coupes in the world in any measure – with unprecedented levels of technology, refinement, track capability and straight-line acceleration. It is powered by the LT4 supercharged 6.2L V8 engine producing 485kw (650hp), and either a six-speed manual transmission with Active Rev Match or an all-new 10-speed automatic.
The new Hydra-Matic 10-speed automatic offers faster upshifts than the Porsche PDK transmission and features a wide, 7.39 overall ratio spread.
The new ZL1 features a stronger power-to-weight ratio than its predecessor, weighing over 90kg less, while offering approximately 52kw more power and 108nm more torque. Track capability comes standard, with features including 11 heat exchangers for optimal powertrain cooling.
The ZL1’s handling capability starts with the lightweight, stiff structure of the Gen Six Camaro, married with specially calibrated Magnetic Ride suspension and an electronic limited-slip differential. Unique 20-inch forged aluminium wheels with 285/30ZR20 front and 305/30ZR20 rear Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar tyres with a compound and construction developed exclusively for the Camaro to offer exceptional grip on the track. Brembo brakes with six-piston monobloc front calipers – featuring the ZL1 logo – and massive, 15.35-inch (390 mm) two-piece front rotors provide exceptional stopping power.
Recaro front seats are standard, along with a sueded flat-bottom steering wheel and shift knob. Chevrolet’s Performance Data Recorder is available as an option. Chevrolet MyLink with an 8-inch-diagonal colour touchscreen is standard and features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto phone projection compatibility.

Taking the track-focused 1LE formula to an unprecedented level, the 2018 ZL1 1LE incorporates racing-based suspension and aero technologies in an extreme track performance package.
New aero features including a carbon fiber rear wing, specific air deflectors and dive planes on the front fascia produce grip-generating downforce to help the car stick harder and drive faster in turns.
The ZL1 1LE features racing-derived, lightweight Multimatic DSSV® (Dynamic Suspension Spool Valve) dampers front and rear for exceptional wheel and vehicle control. The front-end ride height is adjustable with the front dampers, which are used with all-new, adjustable camber plates. The rear stabiliser bar also offers three-way adjustability. All of the components are designed for quick changes at the track for optimal performance and a quick return to street settings when the track day ends.
New, lightweight forged aluminum wheels are an inch wider but an inch smaller in diameter, front and rear, than standard ZL1 wheels and are used with new Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar 3R tires that deliver max lateral grip of 1.10g. Developed exclusively for the Camaro ZL1 1LE, the 3R tires are designed to warm up faster to help maintain more consistent grip and speed, lap after lap. The overall footprint grows approximately 10 percent over the ZL1, but the wheel-and-tire package weighs about 1.5 pounds (3.3 kg) less per corner.
The lighter wheels and dampers, along with reduced thickness rear glass and a fixed-back rear seat, contribute to an approximately 27kg (60lb) lower curb weight than a standard ZL1 Coupe.
