Introducing the New Camaro ZL1: 0-100 in 3.9 Seconds
Welcome to the 2013 Camaro ZL1 — the highest-performing production Camaro of all time. It is literally like nothing you've ever driven before.
Tested on some of the most rigorous tracks around the world, including the Nürburgring, where it clocked in at 7:41.27, the ZL1 was built to be track capable right from the showroom. You’ll know what to expect when you hit the gas. And you won’t be disappointed.
But once you get over the rush of the all-aluminum 6.2L supercharged engine and its 580 horsepower and 556 lb.-ft. of torque, you’ll realize that this Camaro is about much more than raw power. The performance and precision continues with Magnetic Ride Control™, world-class braking and 4-wheel independent suspension you can’t get on a Mustang. This is the kind of vehicle that engineers dream about designing and car nuts dream about driving.
The 2013 Camaro ZL1. Get in and experience it for yourself.
Hard to believe, but the 2013 Camaro V6 is lighter-weight and more powerful–323 horses more powerful with the same impressive fuel efficiency: 7,84 l/100km highway on the 6-speed automatic transmission LT. The dual overhead cam engine gives you heart-racing performance. Direct injection and variable valve timing combine to ensure you're getting the most out of every mile. This is one high-tech, low-down, powerful engine.
If unbridled power is what you're after, the aluminum Camaro SS 6.2 L V8 engine offers 426 horsepower and 569 N m of torque befitting its aggressive reputation.
Suspension and Steering That Helps Keep You in Control
It’s so fun to drive, you might just volunteer to pick up the dry cleaning. The independent rear suspension and variable-ratio power steering give you the kind of handling you’ve only dreamt about. Its chassis is tuned to stick in turns and handle transitional situations like a champion. A 52/48 front-to-rear weight ratio gives you the kind of balance you’d expect from the world’s best sports cars.
Performance from the Ground Up
The exhilarating Camaro experience starts — literally — where the rubber meets the road. New 20” wheels available on LT and standard on SS, make a statement that’s impossible to ignore. Pair them with Pirelli® PZero® ultra high performance tires for a true experience of style and power.
Camaro SS: You want more power? You got it
If you're looking for the unbridled Camaro power, the Camaro SS 6.2 L V8, paired with the standard 6-speed transmission, offers 426 horsepower and 569 Nm of torque. Or opt for the high-tech combination of speed and efficiency with the 6-speed automatic transmission version of SS with Active Fuel Management, which offers 9.8L/100km highway while delivering 400 horsepower.
The 2013 SS Performance-tuned suspension has a load of upgraded features, including reengineered stabilizer bars and completely redeveloped dampers for an outstanding ride, balanced transitions, and excellent steering and handling. Pair it with the standard 20'' wheels with Pirelli PZerTM ultra-high performance tires and BremboTM brakes for the ultimate in performance and control.
If speed is what you're after, Launch Control on the manual transmission SS helps control wheel spin for faster 0 to 100 sprints. TAPshift® manual controls on the automatic transmission SS give you command over the gear selection for an exhilarating sports car experience, while keeping the transitions smooth.
The ZL1 brings the thrill of the racetrack to the road, taking Chevrolet Camaro’s power and style and pushing them way beyond normal limits. ZL1 features an all-aluminum 6.2L supercharged V8 engine with intercooled Eaton supercharger for an insane 580hp (net) and 556Nm (net) of torque. Built for speed, its body is uniquely designed to maximize downforce, harnessing air pressure to keep the tires against the road for optimal grip and control. Even the available HydraMatic 6L90 automatic transmission is uniquely designed to handle the massive power of the engine.
Pure performance. Pure Camaro.
Precision-engineered for speed and efficiency. Styled to be unmistakable. Clean, creased lines set off by bold fender shapes. Sculpted rear shoulders created by an impressive one-piece, body-side panel that is as much a marvel of engineering as it is design.
Deep-set eyes. Large-diameter wheels and tires. Make no mistake: This car is ready to pounce. The long hood and short rear deck give Camaro its iconic look. Cap it off with high-intensity discharge headlamps with glowing LED halo rings in the available RS Appearance Package (LT, SS).
An interior that's as fine-tuned as the drive itself. You're in complete command and control, with features like deep-bolstered seats and the Driver Information Center. And Camaro is constantly being reengineered and upgraded to optimize every minute of your driving experience.
Cluster and Auxiliary Gauges
The 2013 Camaro interior has been refined even further, including revised instrument panel styling, a new steering wheel and revised gauge cluster graphics. A four-pack of auxiliary gauges–standard on 2LT and SS–includes oil pressure and transmission temperature.
Steering Wheel Upgrade
Chevrolet engineers have further optimized the steering wheel to give you top-level control and a luxurious feel. The improved, more modern design has pronounced thumb grips above the central spokes for better grip and feel. Control audio functions with buttons right on the steering wheel, plus the standard Bluetooth® wireless technology for select phones helps keep you connected.
Six-Way Power Passenger Seat
You don't want to be the only one appreciating the ride. New for 2013, the passenger seat in every LT and SS Camaro has standard six-way power. That's on top of the already standard six-way power driver's seat.
To truly enjoy performance driving, you need your hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road. The Chervrolet Camaro delivers the technology to give you that freedom.
The customizable Head-Up Display (HUD) lets you see your vehicle diagnostics right on your windshield Meanwhile, a brand-new 7-inch color touchscreen radio displays navigation, PDIM-enabled entertainment, and images from the rearview camera in crisp, bright color. Elsewhere, a four-pack of auxiliary gauges on the console relays system feedback, and ambient lighting door panels cast a soft glow during low-light or evening/night cruising.
Standard on every Camaro, antilock brakes and the StabiliTrak® Electronic Stability Control System with Traction Control help keep you in control during emergency maneuvers. The control module compares your steering input with the vehicle's actual response and, if necessary, makes the corrections to help keep you on track.
In the event of a collision, six standard air bags help protect heads, chests and knees. And the ultra-strength steel safety cage helps keep everyone in the vehicle protected.
