CHEVROLET Camaro ZL1 2018 - Present

GM took its gloves off and launched the Camaro ZL1 as a supercar beater; it was the big brawler that went on the street, picked up a fight with a Teutonic knight, and crushed him in four seconds or less.

While the retro-design conquered American car buyers' hearts and money, the memories about forgotten muscle-cars started to be heard again. This time, the modern muscle-cars are not afraid about cornering speed, and they don't share their rear suspension with a delivery van. And, perhaps, most importantly, they don't look like they were designed during lunch breaks.

The Camaro ZL1 was a special version of the well-known American coupe. At the front, it showed a bumper design like it was smiling, but it was a grin. Its narrow grille above the bumper was extended on the lower apron with a broad one where the ZL1 badge stood small in the upper left corner. From its sides, the Camaro ZL1 showed the same sculptured door panels and enlarged fenders and rear quarter panels, but in the back, there was a new wing on the trunk and four chromed exhausts under the bumper.

Inside, the sport bucket-seats upholstered in suede and contrast stitching were a promise for excellent side support. Cudos to the carmaker who took about the same consideration for the rear bench, albeit it could use some headrests.

The real transformation was under the bodywork. The ZL1 featured a supercharged V-8 that sent 650 hp to the rear wheels through a six-speed manual or, as an option, a ten-speed automatic. Its independent suspension and Brembo brakes transformed it into a track-ready car that could shake an Italian supercar's serenity. This time it wasn't all about a quarter-mile run. Its sibling, the ZL1 LE, lapped the Nurburgring track in 7m16s04," making it the fastest Camaro ever.

Specs zl1 engine


With a fire-breathing 650-hp supercharged V-8 and ferocious track capabilities, the 2021 Chevy Camaro ZL1 is the king of monster muscle cars. Sure, the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 have horsepower ratings that start with seven, but the bow-tie beast delivers similar thrills for fewer green bills. In fact, if the mid-engine Corvette didn't exist, the ZL1 could perhaps be called the world's greatest performance value, which is why it's an Editors' Choice winner. Regardless, the Camaro perfects the front-engine, rear-drive formula inherent to muscle cars. While both the coupe and convertible have a remarkable chassis that's more clairvoyant than Miss Cleo, unleashing the ultimate Camaro requires the transformative 1LE track package, but beware that it makes the suspension very stiff. If you can overlook the Chevy's flawed interior, the 2021 Camaro ZL1 can be more exciting than a roller coaster, and it'll regularly reward thrill-seekers and track rats alike.

What's New for 2021?

There are only a couple changes to the Camaro ZL1 lineup for 2021. Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration are now on its roster of features, and Chevy offers a new extra-cost paint color: Wild Cherry.

Pricing and Which One to Buy

While the coupe with the standard manual transmission is our ZL1 of choice, the optional $7500 1LE Extreme Track Performance package is transformative and tempting. Still, it makes the ZL1 hard to live with every day because the upgraded suspension is very stiff. Instead, we'd simply add the performance data and video recorder for capturing the days we're brave enough to bring this 650-hp hellion to the racetrack.

Engine, Transmission, and Performance

The Camaro's supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 is a well-behaved and tractable beast that makes power all over the rev range and leaves black streaks all over the road. As you'd expect, when stirred up, it leaves the sound of thunder echoing in its wake. Whether paired with the standard six-speed manual transmission or the available 10-speed automatic, the supercharged small-block V-8 lays down stupidly incredible performance figures. The fast-shifting automatic results in quicker acceleration times than the stick, but either way, this Chevy is a demon at the drag strip. Already a satisfying handler with quick and communicative steering, a balanced rear-drive chassis, and a surprisingly supple ride, the Camaro is elevated to new heights by the ZL1 gear. Its adaptive dampers change their stiffness based on the selected drive mode, but even the hardcore modes don't ruin the car's decent, if firm, ride. Want more? Grab the 1LE track package, which vaults the ZL1 into near supercar territory. Its wider and stickier tires, manually adjustable front suspension, and exclusive spool-valve dampers help chew up racetracks and spit out happy drivers. The ZL1 stops from 70 mph in 143 feet, and the ZL1's brake pedal operates with a firmness befitting a performance car.

Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG

The words "Camaro ZL1" and "fuel efficient" shouldn't be used together in a sentence unless the phrase "is not" separates them. The EPA estimates models with the automatic transmission will earn 13 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway. With the manual, those numbers change to 14 and 20, respectively. Surprisingly, the Camaro beats the Shelby GT500 in fuel efficiency, as the latter manages 12 mpg city and 18 mpg highway. The manual-equipped ZL1 1LE we ran on our 75-mph highway fuel-economy route, which is part of our extensive testing regimen, returned a measly 17 mpg.

Interior, Comfort, and Cargo

Turns out 650 horsepower and a ZL1 badge do nothing to erase the current-generation Camaro's woeful outward visibility. It suffers the same thick roof pillars and high windowsills as other Camaros. Still, every ZL1 is well equipped out of the box and offers few options. Standard equipment includes power-adjustable front seats with heating and ventilation, a heated steering wheel, and dual-zone automatic climate control. When it comes to the ZL1, performance and style take precedence over less sexy matters such as cupholder counts and cargo space. There is very little interior stash space for small items, an almost tacit admission on Chevrolet's part that the Camaro comfortably seats only two human beings. Behind the useless rear seats is a nearly as useless shallow trunk with an oddly shaped opening.

Infotainment and Connectivity

Chevrolet's touchscreen infotainment system is among the industry's easier-to-use units, with clear menus, large on-screen buttons, and popular features. It includes a Wi-Fi hotspot and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration. The ZL1 offers as standard nearly everything available on normal Camaros, including a Bose audio system, wireless phone charging, and a head-up display.

Safety and Driver-Assistance Features

The 2021 Camaro ZL1 earned a four-star rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), but this model hasn't been evaluated by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The Chevy does offer a handful of driver-assistance technology. However, if you select either the convertible body style or the optional performance data recorder on the coupe, you'll have to make do without the forward-collision alert. Key safety features include:

  • Standard blind-spot monitoring and rear-cross-traffic alert
  • Standard forward-collision warning (coupe only)
  • Standard rear parking sensors

Warranty and Maintenance Coverage

The ZL1's coverage is fairly typical for the industry, but Chevrolet offers buyers a complimentary scheduled maintenance visit within the first year of ownership.

  • Limited warranty covers three years or 36,000 miles
  • Powertrain warranty covers five years or 60,000 miles
  • Complimentary maintenance is covered for the first visit

2022 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Coupe Review: Stick-Shift King

The Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 coupe has been the thorn in the side of the Ford Mustang and Dodge Challenger SRT for some time, but since those brands released the Mustang Shelby GT500 and Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye versions of their coupes, the hardcore ZL1 has been playing catch-up. It's getting a little long in the tooth now, but it's still an incredible machine, thanks to a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 sending 650 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels. What keeps it exciting is the fact that it's still available with a standard six-speed manual transmission, although a slick ten-speed auto is also available. But is a stick shift enough to keep the ZL1 relevant?

Read in this review:

2022 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Coupe Changes: 🚙What’s the difference vs the 2021 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Coupe?

For the 2022 model year, some of the ZL1 Coupe's options and features are shuffled around and there have been some changes to the color palette. Other than that, the 2022 model is mostly a carryover of the 2021 model.

Pros and Cons

  • Brilliant handling
  • Phenomenal acceleration
  • Still looks good
  • Relatively affordable
  • Most features are standard
  • Tiny trunk
  • Useless rear seats
  • Poor outward visibility

Camaro ZL1 Coupe Exterior

Telling the ZL1 coupe apart from its lesser siblings isn't too difficult, thanks to massive 20-inch forged alloy wheels, a unique rear spoiler on the trunk, and a unique hood. You also get a special front end that features LED running lights in the headlights, black bowtie badges, a front splitter, and some ZL1 badges. A quad-exit exhaust in a faux diffuser adds further aggression, but you'll want the available 1LE Extreme Track Performance package with a huge carbon fiber rear wing and unique canards, if standing out is your thing.

Like its convertible sibling, the 2022 Chevy Camaro ZL1 has a wheelbase measuring 110.7 inches. Other dimensions include a length of 190.2 inches and a width of 75 inches, with wing mirrors taken into account. It is not quite as low as the 52.6 inches of the drop-top, though, at 52.9 inches in height. In comparison, lesser coupes are not quite as long and are both slimmer side-to-side and taller in height. The figure that is most disappointing about a focused sports car like the ZL1 is its curb weight, which is rated at 3,907 pounds. Although this is pretty hefty, it is still around 260 lbs lighter than the Mustang GT500, which weighs a truly lardy 4,171 lbs.

Exterior Colors

Crush, an orange shade, is replaced with Vivid Orange Metallic this year and Shock, a bright yellow, disappears from the palette altogether, but Rapid Blue is new. Both of these are $395 each. The standard finishes are plenty attractive, too - the no-cost options include Red Hot, Satin Steel Metallic, Summit White, Black, Shadow Gray Metallic, and Riverside Blue Metallic. For ultimate menace, we'd opt for black. If you want all the grilles and accents to stand out better, along with the whole car itself, Red Hot is a great choice. Wild Cherry Tintcoat is a $495 option.

2022 Camaro ZL1 Performance

There is only one powertrain option here, but it can be configured with one of two transmission choices - a default six-speed manual or a ten-speed automatic. The Chevy Camaro ZL1 is impressive regardless of which transmission you opt for, but it's the automatic that is the quickest, achieving 0 to 60 mph in just 3.5 seconds, although the manual variant is only slightly slower. Top speed is rated at 198 mph, although some have managed to nudge 200 mph in independent tests. That incredible performance is thanks to a 6.2-liter supercharged LT4 V8 engine that the C7 Z06 also made use of. It produces an incredible 650 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque, but the ZL1 is more than just a straight-line missile. This is the Camaro you buy if you enjoy corners and hard-charging on the track. Proof of this can be found in the ZL1's Nürburgring lap time, which was 7:16.04 - quicker than a Ferrari 488 GTB - with the 1LE Extreme Track Performance package fitted.

Engine and Transmission

The standard configuration sees that LT4 supercharged 6.2-liter V8 paired with a six-speed manual transmission, and it's a remarkably fun combination - although we suspect 650 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque could still be fun, even with a CVT. Despite sticky and very wide tires, the ZL1 is easily capable of performing long, gratuitous burnouts at will. If you just want to get from A to B as quickly as possible, a high level of restraint with your right foot will be required off the line, but once the initial inertia is overcome, you'll be able to overtake almost anything with ease, rarely needing to downshift. The ten-speed auto is a great transmission, too, with smooth and sharp shifts that never interrupt your acceleration. With so many ratios, cruising is a breeze too, but you can take manual control if you like through the responsive steering-mounted paddles. Combined with that addictive supercharger whine and roaring V8, the ZL1 Camaro is a beast that will thrill every day but can be relatively civilized on the daily drive too.

Handling and Driving Impressions

This is the aspect of the ZL1's persona that has been developed the most: this is a track car with license plates. Chevrolet's engineers took developing this car very seriously and even honed the bodywork in a wind tunnel to optimal aerodynamic efficiency, which is rather handy when your car can do close to 200 mph. There's plenty of mechanical grip too, thanks to specially tuned springs and magnetic dampers, while an electronic limited-slip differential helps you continue to face the tightest corners with confidence. There's also an adjustable rear stabilizer bar, and the result is a car that steers and handles with incredible poise, despite all that power. The Goodyear Eagle F1 SuperCar G:2 tires are another neat touch that help you go as fast as possible. Sure, you can slide this thing with ease, but learn to make the most of its Track mode, and you'll be able to take corners far faster than you ever thought possible. Brembo brakes do a great job of slowing your progress when necessary too, while hardcore enthusiasts can opt for the 1LE package for even better downforce and control. Still, it's not unbearable on the road, as those adaptive magnetic dampers do an excellent job of smoothing over big and small bumps alike.

Camaro ZL1 Gas Mileage

Gas mileage from an engine producing this much performance is unsurprisingly poor, but what is a little surprising is that the automatic version of the ZL1 is just as bad as the manual. While the six-speed returns horrendous figures of 14/20/16 mpg on the EPA's city/highway/combined cycles, the ten-speed auto has an even worse rating in the city with 13/21/16. Sure, the highway figures are better, but when you need your economy most is when crawling through the city. Nevertheless, with a 19-gallon gas tank fitted to both, you can expect around 304 miles of mixed driving per tank. This is better than the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500's 12/18/14 mpg that gives only 224 miles on its smaller 16-gallon tank.

Camaro ZL1 Interior

The overall design and look of the ZL1's cabin is not much unlike those in lesser Camaros, but this interior features all the goodies. You get oodles of leather, sueded microfiber, and contrast stitching, much of which can be seen on the stunning Recaro front seats. The D-shaped steering wheel is a nice touch too, while the inclusion of wireless smartphone integration makes it friendly for daily use than ever before. However, the rear seats are still inhospitable, and outward visibility is just as poor as build quality and overall feel.

Seating and Interior Space

The Camaro claims to be a 2+2, but unless your friends are all toddlers, you won't be having many of them join you for a spin - at least not from the second row. Riding shotgun is a possibility, though, as six-footers are accommodated with adequate headroom and legroom. Both front passengers are also seated in grippy Recaro bucket seats that manage to tread the line between comfort and support with impeccable execution. However, the driver will still take issue with one aspect of the Camaro's cabin, and that's outward visibility, which is rather poor in all directions. This is a problem that is only magnified if you're a little vertically challenged.

  • Front Head Room38.5 in

Interior Colors and Materials

Although you get a great choice of colors for the paint, the interior is strictly a red and black affair, with the former shade being attached to the stitching and, if you spend $195, the seatbelts. The latter hue is applied liberally to the leather components, but some faux aluminum does break things up a little, while an abundance of gray microfiber suede gives a sporty feel. You can also spec red knee pads for $350 or a fake carbon fiber shift knob for 100 bucks, but this cabin, despite its best efforts, already feels tacky and cheap, so adding to that is probably not a great idea.

Considering this is a sports car, you aren't likely expecting much in the way of trunk space, but the Camaro ZL1 coupe's offerings in this respect are especially poor. The official claim is 9.1 cubic feet, which is considerably less than a Mustang's 13.5 and a little more than half what the Challenger's 16.2 cubic-foot trunk can accommodate. The trunk opening on the Camaro is also high, so we wouldn't toss much more than a gym bag in the back unless you really need some space and choose to fold the rear seats.

In the cabin, you get decent cupholders, but the door pockets are tiny, and the center armrest compartment and glovebox are minuscule. Still, at least there won't be anyone in the back seat, so you can chuck some overnight bags back there for a weekend holiday.

Camaro ZL1 Coupe Infotainment and Features


Since this is the ultimate Camaro available at the moment, you'll find a lot of features not available on the base model. You get an eight-way power driver's seat with memory, cruise control, heated Recaro front seats and a heated steering wheel, wireless charging, a 24-color ambient lighting system, keyless entry, a power trunk release, and a head-up display. You also get forward collision detection, blind-spot monitoring with lane change alert and rear cross-traffic alert, and rear parking sensors. A power sunroof is available on the options list.


As standard, the 2022 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 comes with an eight-inch touchscreen infotainment display running Chevrolet Infotainment 3 Plus software. The screen is high-definition and displays clear images, and is easy to navigate. It offers Bluetooth connectivity, wireless Apple CarPlay, wireless Android Auto, voice control, and two USB ports. You also get a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, a nine-speaker Bose premium audio setup, and SiriusXM satellite radio as standard. However, navigation is an option.

Camaro ZL1 Coupe Problems and Reliability

Reliability is important on a car with a massive, supercharged V8 engine, and fortunately, the 2022 Camaro ZL1 has thus far been free of recalls. However, it's worth mentioning that the 2021 model suffered three; the issues included a steering-wheel emblem that may fracture and pose a hazard in the case of the airbag deploying, a missing retaining ring on an axle shaft, and the use of incorrect seatbelt bolts.

If that's a concern, Chevrolet provides a bumper-to-bumper warranty for the first three years or 36,000 miles of ownership along with a five-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty, and rust-through coverage for the first six years/100,000 miles. One complimentary scheduled maintenance visit is also thrown in.

Camaro ZL1 Safety

Safety is very important, especially when you see horrific crashes occurring regularly in all parts of the USA. The 2022 iteration is rated five stars overall by the NHTSA - the safety review for the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 includes a score of four stars in frontal tests, while the side crash and rollover protection both achieved a full five stars. On the other hand, the IIHS awarded the 2021 Camaro with an overall score of Good in all reviews barring roof strength, which was considered Acceptable. The bottom line is this: keep the ZL1 on the track where it belongs or take it easy on the road.

Key Safety Features

Speaking of safety, the Camaro ZL1 comes standard with all available features for the range. This means a rearview camera, forward collision alert, and eight airbags, including knee airbags for both front passengers. You also get a teen driver mode, rear parking sensors, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert and lane change assist, and the usual traction and stability management systems.

Verdict: 🏁Is the 2022 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 a Good Car?

If you've driven a GT500 hard on track or felt the raw acceleration of a Challenger Hellcat Redeye, the ZL1 will probably still excite you - it's that good. Yes, it's old, and yes, its interior isn't of the highest quality, but the way it handles and accelerates is still ridiculous. It's also still a good-looking car despite becoming a little dated, and we like the long list of standard features. Considering its asking price, the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 is a bargain in more ways than just performance. And let's not forget that it comes with a proper, old-school, fun manual gearbox as standard. What it lacks in interior space, cargo volume, and build quality, it makes up for with charm, supercharger noise, and the fact that it's still the only pony car that pulls off the whole Autobot thing convincingly. What's not to love?

🚘What's the Price of the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 for 2022?

While we're on the subject of cost, both manual and automatic versions of the ZL1 carry an MSRP of $63,000 along with a destination charge of $1,195. However, while the manual carries a $1,700 gas guzzler tax, the automatic charges you $2,100 for its consumption. Thus, the manual ends up with a final base price of $65,895 before options or discounts, while the auto lands up at $67,890. Depending on how much you're willing to spec additionally, a fully loaded ZL1 can have a price that exceeds $70,000.

2022 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Coupe Models

There are two configurations available for the 2022 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Coupe, namely a manual and an automatic, making it increasingly rare in a segment that tends to offer automatics for its performance flagships only. The standard transmission is a six-speed manual, with a 10-speed automatic available at extra cost. The default engine option is a direct-injected and supercharged 6.2-liter LT4 V8 with 650 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque that sends its power through either of the aforementioned transmissions to the rear wheels. Said wheels are 20-inch items all round and other exterior distinguishing features are a model-specific trunk-lid wing, LED daytime running lights, a quad-exit exhaust, and Brembo brakes. It also has magnetic adaptive dampers and launch control. Inside, there are power-adjustable and heated front Recaro seats, leather/sueded microfiber upholstery, red stitching, and aluminum-look plastic are standard too. Finally, the infotainment system has an eight-inch touchscreen and supports wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as a nine-speaker Bose audio system. The rear seats are very small, and so is the trunk, but this is a track-focused machine, made even better by speccing the 1LE package.

Additional Packages

The most important package is called ZL1 1LE Extreme Track Performance. This adds a rear bench seat, a satin black hood wrap just ahead of visible carbon fiber weave, and performance suspension with DSSV dampers. You also get a unique front splitter, front dive planes, low-gloss black wing mirrors, darkened taillamps, special 19-inch wheels, adjustable camber plates, rear stabilizer bars, and front spring seats, along with red calipers and Goodyear SuperCar 3R tires. However, this is not cheap and will cost an extra $7,500. If you just want the visible carbon fiber weave hood insert, that can be had for $600, while a power sunroof will set you back $995.

🚗What Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Model Should I Buy?

Considering the high cost of the 1LE package and how good the ZL1 already is, we'd recommend sticking with the standard setup, especially with its manual gearbox. We may splash out on some paint and go for Wild Cherry Tintcoat, but beyond that, you're spending excessively on a car that you're unlikely to use every day. If you do plan to drive it daily, we recommend a test drive first to ensure that you're happy with that outward visibility problem.

2022 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Coupe Comparisons

2022 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Coupe vs Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat

The supposedly normal Challenger SRT Hellcat is just as much a performance bargain as the ZL1. It starts at just $59,765 and also comes with a 6.2-liter supercharged V8. This one is a real monster though, producing a simply absurd 717 hp and 656 lb-ft of torque. Like the ZL1, you can have it with a six-speed manual or an automatic if you prefer, but it's not just power where the Hellcat demolishes the ZL1. It's also much roomier and more comfortable inside, has a massive trunk, and simply feels sturdier. In addition, if you're willing to spend as much as a fully loaded ZL1 1LE will set you back, you can get a Hellcat Redeye. This gives you an earth-shattering 797 hp and 707 lb-ft of torque. Whoever said power isn't everything may have been right, but it certainly makes us lean more towards the Dodge on this one.

2022 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Coupe vs Ford Mustang Mach 1

The Mustang Mach 1 comes with both a manual and an automatic gearbox. The idea is that it is the ultimate Mustang not built especially for the track. Despite this, it produces 22 percent more downforce than a regular Mustang, with a lot more available through an optional handling package. It's a lot less powerful than the Camaro ZL1, though, producing just 480 horsepower. Like the ZL1, it's fitted with magnetic dampers and big Brembo brakes. We'll have to wait to drive it for a final answer. With pricing starting at $53,400, it offers excellent value though. If you don't mind the auto-only transmission and a starting price of $72,900, the Mustang GT500 represents the ultimate fire-breathing Mustang and has a monstrous 760 hp on tap.
