The 2017 Chevy Camaro is supercharged once again

After launching the redesigned and updated Camaro for 2016, the 2017 Chevy Camaro sees the return of the supercharged ZL1 trim and the racing-inspired 1LE package. While the Camaro already offers three strong engines to choose from, the ZL1 introduces a new supercharged V8 making a ridiculous 650 horsepower. Additionally, LT and SS trim levels can now be equipped with the 1LE package, which adds track-oriented upgrades to the brakes, suspension, and wheels. The standard turbocharged four-cylinder, and optional 335-horsepower V6 and 455-horsepower V8 engines carry over for other trim levels.

The 2017 Camaro has almost all the modern tech shoppers should expect, from smartphone integration to available blind-spot monitoring. Unfortunately, other driver aids are still lacking, and the car’s aggressive looks come with compromises. The Camaro has poor visibility, a cramped backseat, and a tiny trunk.

5 reasons to buy the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro

What we like

Performance: With the reintroduction of the ZL1 trim, the 2017 Camaro has plenty of performance cred. But regardless of the engine it’s equipped with, the Camaro is a proper sports car. Sharp, confident handling and an engaging driving experience mean the Camaro is fun to drive.

Ride Quality: The Camaro’s ride quality is a real strength, especially considering its handling prowess. The available adaptive dampers improve both ride and handling, and let you switch between comfort and a firmer sport mode at the push of a button.

Standard features: Obviously higher trim levels have a lot of extra equipment to offer, but even the base Camaro is packed with desirable features. These include a power-adjustable driver’s seat, a 7-inch touchscreen with Android Auto® and Apple CarPlay, a Wi-Fi hotspot and a rearview camera.

What needs improvement

Usability: Even among muscle cars, which don’t put practicality first, the Camaro comes with some distinct weaknesses. Visibility from the cabin is poor, and the rear seat and trunk are both cramped. Overall, the Camaro is less flexible than its competitors.
