You may want to check out what Chevrolet Performance has in store for you if you own a 2010 or newer Camaro V-6 or SS. It has prepared a package that consists of a variety of parts from the ZL1 for both Camaro V-6 and SS V-8 models. If going to the track or driving through mountain passes is your thing, you’d want to get the heavier-duty larger brakes from the Camaro ZL1.

You can ask for the ZL1 brakes as separate front and rear packages for the SS model, and as a four-wheel kit for the V-6 model. The V-6 models can also upgrade to the SS brakes. The V-6 and SS models can also get the 1LE Track Pack, which is comprised of a bigger front and rear stabilizer bar, front struts, and monotube rear shocks.

This kit works together with the factory StabiliTrak system and most importantly, it does not void the factory warranty.

Chevrolet Performance is also offering a cam and head kit for V-8 powered models. These include CNC-ported LS3 heads and a high-lift LS7 camshaft. The kit can be fitted on all Gen-IV small-blocks with a 4-inch and bigger bore.

To get even more of a tuning experience, you can buy the full ZL1 driveline that includes a 9.9-inch rear ring and pinion with limited slip differential in a heavy-duty cast iron housing, asymmetrical driveshafts, and can be fitted for both automatic and manual V-6 and V-8 models. The pricing information for these kits is not yet available. For more information, contact your Chevrolet dealer.

The long hood and short deck are forced to the far corners of the bulky fender forms and a quick, 67-degree rake windshield adds to the aerodynamic execution that integrates a 0.37 coefficient of drag (Cd) on V-6 models and a significantly sleeker 0.35 Cd on the V-8-powered SS model.

Wheel arch openings got special notice through the design process. Regardless of whether the Chevrolet Camaro is furnished with the standard 18-inch, or alternative 19-inch or 20-inch wheels, the relationship of the top of the tire and base of the fender is the same on all models. All models likewise highlight the iconic "V" design motif in the nose, alongside a 2.5-inch (63.5 mm) power dome in the aluminum hood, which reminds us of high-performance Chevrolet Camaro models. On SS models, a duplicated air intake is situated in the upper front fascia and the lower air intake is bigger.

On the top, designers took a signal from the Corvette and etched twin cockpits over the roof, granting the car an exclusive Chevrolet presence. From the outside, the B-pillar is hidden to the eye, giving it the true look of a hardtop coupe. The B-pillar is created to provide enhanced structural firmness to the vehicle.

What's more, to guarantee quality in the manufacturing procedure, a one-piece body stamping gives a cleaner overall side appearance that is free of creases, holes or plastic appliqués. "Gills" situated in the front of the rear quarter panel likewise are trademark Chevrolet Camaro styling cues.
