DETROIT — Chevrolet Performance has announced the introduction of a line of parts and accessories for fifth-generation Camaros, those from model years 2010 and newer, including the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro SS.
The collection of parts for Chevrolet Camaro V6 and SS models includes components from the ZL1 and SS 1LE packages, which should go a long way toward improving performance on the street, while also meeting the needs of owners who take their cars on the track. Pricing was not available at this point.
Jim Campbell, GM's U.S. vice president of performance vehicles and motorsports said in a statement: "These Chevrolet Performance parts are based on Chevrolet factory-validated production components that were tested on racetracks and validated to standards unmatched in the aftermarket industry. Quite simply, they're tailored for improved performance and built to the highest standards."
The new line for V6 and SS models includes front and rear brake kits, high-performance fuel pumps, low-restriction air filters, strut tower braces and short-throw shifters, as well as a complete ZL1 rear driveline system and the 1LE track package.
The collection for V6 models adds a brake kit from the Camaro SS, featuring Brembo components, including rotors, calipers, brake pads and master cylinder, all designed to work with existing traction control and antilock systems.
Owners of SS models can opt for an engine upgrade package developed by Chevrolet Motorsports and consisting of LS3 heads and LS7 camshaft. According to Chevrolet Performance this kit, with its ported heads and high-lift cam will add up to 40 horsepower.
Finally, Chevy offers Gen 5 owners a complete line of specialty components from the limited-production, dragstrip-ready COPO Camaro. These include the distinctive COPO Camaro hood and special COPO-branded gauges.
The complete lineup of parts is available from Chevrolet dealers, which can be found at Chevrolet Performance or Chevrolet.com. And Chevrolet Performance notes that many of the components can be installed without voiding the vehicle's warranty.
Edmunds says: Gen 5 Camaro owners looking to improve performance for the road or track will welcome this new collection of factory upgrades.
