An industrious member of the 6th-gen Camaro forums spotted undisguised 2019 Camaros in Las Vegas.
In April, we happened to catch a cheeky video of GM testing the 2019 Chevrolet Camaro SS in the frigid Rocky Mountains. Now, it appears GM is taking the new Camaro to the exact opposite climate. A member of the Camaro6 forum spotted these 2019 Camaros on the back of a transport in Las Vegas. However, these don’t appear to be the common variety models. We’re gazing upon the big daddy of the lineup: the 2019 Camaro ZL1.
To the untrained eye, it may not look like this is the all-new Camaro ZL1, but the front and rear fascias give the game away. Apart from the front and rear end, there’s not much to distinguish the next generation Camaro from the current one. The intrepid photographer also captured a shot of a ZL1 with what may be the 1LE track package. Interestingly, it sports a low-rise wing on the back – still camouflaged – rather than the huge wing on the back of the current ZL1. Chevy bills that model as the most extreme track Camaro yet, but we’re not sure whether that wing will carry over. Or, alternatively, this could be what you get on future models equipped with the 1LE package.
Still keeping that big, supercharged V8
Regardless of any wing shenanigans, the powertrain for the new ZL1 should remain the same. That means you get a 650 horsepower, 650 lb-ft torque supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine. It should also retain its 10-speed transmission and “line-lock” feature, which allows you to perform awesome burnouts at the push of a button. We haven’t received word on any pricing for the new ZL1 yet, but we should get that information when it and the other Camaros go on sale later this year. Come back to TFLcar.com for more updates!
