Also, some rumors allege that the vehicle will come adorned in a new platform, which will supplement its sleeker exterior and interior facets to the disadvantage of its close competitors like the Ford Mustang and the Dodge Challenger.

From my own standpoint, both the Mustang and Challenger are outright loftier and very desirable especially for the current year. But still, serious buyers looking for a Camaro will ultimately have the final say, as most of them are traditional buyers who are accustomed to the driving dynamics of the Camaro, and wouldn’t blink an eye for rival offers.

2017 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 Release Date, News and Rumors

With images and spy pics of what seems like the long-awaited 2017 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 trolling the internet for weeks now, information surrounding it is far from a secret now. Not long ago, our spy photographers got a preview of what the new model looks like, some few weeks later we got some teaser images and a video of it roaring, then just recently it was reported that the model was involved in an unfortunate crash on a wall during one of the test drives. What’s even more, Chevy has exclusively given us some info that regards what we should expect from the new Chevrolet Camaro Z28. Read on to learn what specs you should expect, including its price and release date.

For one, the new 2017 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 is unabashedly loud, fast, and grippy just like the model it is replacing only this time it is much more powerful and updated. But before we indulge ourselves into the new model’s nitty-gritties, here is a quick intro. The new model is a 6th generation, track-focused model that is set to replace the 2014 Camaro Z28. While the Z28 isn’t the fastest, quickest or the most powerful Camaro model, it is arguably the most expensive. Introduced back in 1967, the model was created for track enthusiasts who more inclined in track racing than for say-to-day practicality.

Well, while some things remain unchanged even in the newest model, others have changed in line with conventional standards. Power is one of them. While the immediate model came equipped with a 500 horsepower- and 470 lbs. ft. of torque – generating 7.0L V8 engine, the new model comes equipped with a stonking 6.2L supercharged V8 – borrowed from the Corvette Z06 – capable of churning out over 505 horsepower and 481 lbs. ft. of torque. Well, that is perhaps according to industry experts, we however expect a significant improvement of power and torque, as the additional 5 horsepower doesn’t compensate for the long wait we’ve had to endure. In fact, unconfirmed rumors say the new model will probably offer just about the same torque as the 6.2L V8 currently powering the Camaro ZL1 with an output of 640 horsepower and 640 lbs. ft. of torque.

The interior and exterior facets are also expected to match those of its traditional rivals. As such, buyers should expect the latest in infotainment, convenience, and entertainment features. Some of the rivals that will be hot on the heels of the new Chevrolet Camaro Z28 2017 include the 2017 BMW M4, Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe, and the Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R.

2017 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 Release Date & Price

We’re a bit light on details when it boils down to these crucial details. However, judging from the spy pictures we have of the Camaro Z28, it is quite apparent that the new model isn’t that far away from the horizon. As such, the earliest we should expect it is perhaps in the second half of 2017 while the latest should be in early 2018. We hope the former gets to be, but if not, then the new model will without a doubt be offered as “2018 Chevrolet Camaro Z28.

Well, we have too little information to give concerning this, as the vehicle as it is in its current form, is heavily camouflaged and thus has little to show. But hey, a total makeover is inevitable, which will give the new model better cooling, braking, aerodynamic, grip, and downforce components. It is also expected that the new model will be lighter than its ilk. Some of the features to expect include a shelf-like front splitter, adjustable rear wing, aggressive canards at the front fascia, and a larger grille and vents.

The interior is expected to compare much with the Corvette Grand Sport. And for a car built on a reputation of performance, stylish designs, easy to use infotainment system, and a driver-centric cockpit should be beyond reproach. More details on these and more will be available on its release date.

Available Trims

Assuming the existing Chevrolet Camaro lineup won’t be altered, the 2017 Camaro Z28 belongs in a larger Camaro group that also includes trims such as 1LS, 2LS, 1LT, 2LT, 1SS, 2SS, and the ZL1.

Engine Specs

As already mentioned, details about this is scarce. However, our speculation is that the new model will come equipped with a supercharged 6.2L V8 engine that will commensurate with its position at the top of the Camaro food chain and its price. The new engine should be able to offer it over 640 horsepower, at least according to us. Its top speed might be in the region of 186 mph.

Safety

For a car of its standing – crazy power, stonking 0-60 mph acceleration, higher price point, etc. – it is only natural that it comes with advanced safety systems that should safeguard all the occupants from potential crashes. As such, a five out of five star rating by the government shouldn’t come as a surprise.

It is quite obvious that a lot of people like having the utility that comes with driving a pick-up, however, not everyone needs a full-size truck. That is typically where compact trucks fit in.

In recent years, almost every automaker has released their own pickup truck and this has led traditional automakers to offer a myriad of innovations and features. Chevrolet even stopped producing its compact Colorado for some time. However, Chevy is now fully back in the game with last year’s model and now the refreshed 2016 model.

The new 2016 Chevrolet Colorado is going to feature subtle changes owing to the fact that the previous model received radical changes. It is going to be more or less the size as its Nissan Frontier or Toyota Tacoma rivals. This, therefore means that the Colorado will be advantageous in terms of fuel efficiency, bespoke interior designs and materials that according to my opinion, come with extravagant features.

Some of these include the Toyota Tacoma and Nissan Frontier, which are capable trucks and are inexpensive than the Colorado.
