2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Unveiled
"Camaro ZL1 is about high-tech performance and design, and is a type of car no one has ever brought to this segment previously," said Rick Scheidt, vice president of Chevrolet marketing. "It's the most technically advanced Camaro ever, so we've chosen a name from the most elite and exclusive Camaro in history."
Chevrolet engineers have also incorporated new technologies in the new ZL1, such as electric power steering and Magnetic Ride Control, the world's fastest-reacting suspension system.
New rocker panels, wide tires, 20-inch wheels and exhaust tips are also included. Moreover, the ZL1 badge appears on the grille, hood and the brake calipers, all key areas portraying the technology within.
All of the Camaro exterior colors will be offered with the ZL1, but black is the only interior color. Inside, the Camaro ZL1 has heated leather seats with microfiber inserts and ZL1 logos embroidered on the front headrests. Microfiber suede is repeated as an accent on the instrument panel.
The ZL1 will include the same content as the current 2SS package, but will also include the following: six-way power driver and passenger seats, unique instrument panel and door panel inserts; and ZL1-logo sill plates, steering wheel audio controls with Bluetooth capability, wireless PDIM and USB-port, Boston Acoustics premium audio system, rear parking assist, rear camera system (displayed in the inside rearview mirror).
