As if there weren’t enough possibilities for the Chevrolet Camaro already, the automaker announced today that it will introduce a new 1LE performance package to further augment the already-muscular Camaro SS coupe. “With the 2013 model year, Camaro offers something for almost every driver, including: the 323-horsepower, 30-mpg 2LS; the all-new, 580-horsepower supercharged ZL1 convertible;… Continue Reading...

Often times people think that cars are just all about horsepower.

The exact horsepower rating of the upcoming Camaro ZL1 has been a closely guarded secret, until now. When initially unveiled at the Chicago Auto Show Chevy representatives were clear that while it shares its supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine with the Cadillac CTS-V, it would make more horsepower than that model. More recently came reports that… Continue Reading...
Official SAE testing of the Camaro has been completed and according to one source familiar with the official horsepower rating, it will come in at something higher than 570-hp.
