Chevrolet has announced that the 2014 Camaro Z/28 will begin arriving at your Local Chevrolet Dealership this spring with a starting MSRP of $75,000. That price includes the $995 destination charge, but does not include tax, title, license and dealer fees.
The Camaro Z/28 is a track car that is legal on the road – plain and simple. With a 7.0L LS7 engine providing 505 horsepower and 481 lb-ft of torque, the Chevy Camaro Z/28 provides enough power, acceleration, and aerodynamics to produce faster lap times on Germany’s Nurburgring road course than the Porsche 911 Carrera S and the Lamborghini Murcielago LP640.
The Z/28 is available in 5 colors – Red Hot, Black, Silver Ice Metallic, Ashen Gray Metallic, and Summit White. If there is one thing you should know about the Z/28, it is the fact that the Camaro Z/28 is a track car. There is only one option on the car. An $1,150 package that adds air conditioning and a total of six audio speakers. The standard Z/28 comes with one speaker for the door chime (making it street legal).
The 2014 Camaro Z/28 is has only one transmission available. A close-ratio, six-speed manual transmission which distributes power to the rear wheels through a Torsen limited-slip differential featuring a helical gear set, rather than traditional clutch packs. Also on the Z/28 are 19-inch forged aluminum wheels and Pirelli PZero Trofeo R tires. These tires represent the first production-car application in the industry and are believed to be the wides front tire on any production car.

Today, Chevrolet introduced the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro at the New York Auto Show. The 2014 Camaro looks to boast a few changes from the previous year model. With all of the new vehicles from Chevrolet for the 2014 year, it is hard to keep up with all of them! Just after the unveil of the new 2014 Stingray and now the Corvette Stingray Convertible, the next exciting thing from Chevrolet is this 2014 Chevy Camaro!
The 2014 Camaro has subtle changes and it begins with the front fascia featuring a larger lower opening for increased cooling and to reduce drag. The rear has also been redesigned for greater aerodynamics and balance. As you will notice, the rear end of the Camaro has also been changed up a bit for the 2014 year. There is a new rear spoiler as well as new tail lights. The lights seems to lose some of the retro-look, however they still have the squared-off look. Lastly, as talked about in the video, the car will feature performance seats from the well-known company Recaro.
2014 Z28 Camaro
A car that we had no idea was coming back was also introduced at the New York Auto Show – the legendary Z28 that most of us all remember. This track-built car is expected to have 500HP with 470 lb. ft. of torque with its high revvy naturally aspirated LS7 small-block V8.
Along with the muscle in this car, the engineers as Chevrolet have attempted to remove significant weight from the car. Although we don’t know exactly how much weight has been removed, we do know some of the things they decided to remove. For starters, the carpet and insulation in the trunk has been removed. The use of thinner glass in the rear windows has also been used to reduce weight. Air conditioning will be optional. Also, all of the speakers have been removed except for one, and that one is only in there because it has to be to function the chime for the seatbelts.
Chevrolet describes the 2014 Z28 as a street legal track car that not everyone will want, but the ones that do want it will be getting a great engineered vehicle!
Here at your Bossier City Chevrolet Dealership, we are excited to hear of its return! We promise to get pictures up of one just as soon as we get our first one! If you have any questions or need anything from us, please feel free to reach out to us at 318-59-7500 or online at www.RedRiverChevy.com.
