2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Starts at $62,135

DETROIT — The 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 coupe, which promises to be a monster draw in Chevrolet showrooms later this year, will be priced at $62,135 for coupe models and $69,135 for convertibles, GM announced on Monday.

Pricing includes a $995 destination charge.

In comparison, the base 2017 Camaro coupe starts at $27,300, including destination fees, according to the Chevrolet vehicle configurator.

The optional 2017 Camaro 1LE package starts at $4,500 on Camaro V6 LT coupe models and $6,500 on the V8 1SS coupe model.

The package features the Camaro SS' FE3 suspension, while the 1SS benefits from the ZL1's electronic limited-slip differential and FE4 suspension with Magnetic Ride dampers, GM said.

"The new 1LE packages expand the performance envelope of the Camaro SS and, for the first time, the Camaro LT," said Al Oppenheiser, Camaro chief engineer, in a statement.

Equipped with a new 650-horsepower supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine linked to a standard six-speed manual transmission or the all-new optional 10-speed automatic transmission, the 2017 Camaro ZL1 is one of the most highly anticipated muscle cars of the year. It targets the 2017 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. The Hellcat starts at $65,945.

Exterior cues include a new hood with a carbon-fiber insert and heat extractor designed to pull hot air from the engine compartment. The cabin features standard Recaro front seats, a flat-bottom steering wheel and shift knob.

Edmunds says: The 2017 Camaro ZL1 offers competitive pricing against its chief rival, something that performance-oriented car shoppers will appreciate.
