2015 Chevy Camaro Z28 Power and Performance

Power, performance and speed junkies rejoice — the 2015 Camaro Z28 is here! Oftentimes when drivers think of Chevy, the rough and tumble Chevy Silverado comes to mind or maybe the iconic Chevy Corvette Stingray, but all too often the Chevy Camaro is forgotten. In direct competition with the Ford Mustang, the 2015 Chevy Camaro offers high-end performance with a lower standard price tag than its Corvette counterpart and the track-tuned Camaro Z28 is the cream of the Camaro crop. Take a look at the 2015 Chevy Camaro Z28 power and performance that you will have at your fingertips when you get behind the wheel.

Billed as the most track-capable Camaro ever, the Z28 builds on the signature Chevy pony car of past generations. Though not designed for the track specifically, the performance-tuned 2015 Camaro Z28 will be right at home if you put it there. Its exterior design was developed to provide incomparable aerodynamics and monstrous downforce alongside an aggressive, predatory style that is head-turning.

Lightweight materials are also employed in the exterior design, making the Camaro Z28 300 pounds lighter than the supercharged Camaro SS, amplifying acceleration, handling and overall performance. When cornering, the Camaro Z28 possesses the downforce to create a stronger grip and up to 1.08 g on the track, which leads to faster lap times. Brembo carbon ceramic brakes also deliver 1.5 g in deceleration and help lighten the load as you fly around the track at unimaginable speeds.

While design and aerodynamics have a lot to do with the Camaro Z28’s power and performance, it comes down to what’s under the hood. When you look under the hood of the 2015 Camaro Z28 you will find a monstrous 7.0-liter LS7 V-8 power core that shells out an explosive 505 horsepower and a chassis-twisting 481 pound-feet of torque. With a 7.6:1 power-to-weight ratio, the Camaro Z28 is agile around corners and possesses the power to win out on the straightaway. A Performance Traction Management also allows you to optimize throttle levels and brake intervention for unrivaled performance.

To help illustrate the performance and capabilities of the track-ready 2015 Chevy Camaro Z28, take a look at what it can do against elite competition on Germany’s famed Nurburgring road course. With a time of 7:37.47, the Camaro Z28 is four seconds faster than the Camaro ZL1 and surpasses the Porsche Carrera S and Lamborghini Murcielago LP640. That puts this Chevy performance model in elite company when it comes to on-track performance.

If you love out-of-this-world speed on the track or on the streets, the 2015 Chevy Camaro Z28 power and performance are what you need. Stop in today at McCluskey Chevrolet and take the track-ready Camaro Z28 or any of our other Chevy models for a test drive around Cincinnati.
