2025 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 is a street-legal, race-ready version of the fabled Chevy Camaro. It was first designed as a race car with the Trans Am series created by the Sports Car Club of America (SCCA). Through the years it has seen the Z/28 badge grow from the status of a “Special Performance Package” to an intimidating track-legend. It appears that Chevrolet has not paid attention to the Z28 Camaro in favor of the Z28 Camaro and has paid extra attention to the ZL1 models. Chevrolet Camaro ZL1.
However, the purists are pushing Chevy to produce the sixth generation Camaro Z/28. It is expected that production on the gasoline-powered Camaro will end in 2024, and the company is expected to unveil in 2025 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 as a last goodbye. We have all known about the forthcoming 2025 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 along with some exclusive HotCars renders designed by digital artist Rostislav Prokop.
2025 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28: Powertrain and Performance
In 2025 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 will be built on the same GM Alpha platform that powers the six-generation Camaro as well as the Camaro ZL1. But like it, unlike the Camaro ZL1 propelled by a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 the Camaro Z/28 is expected to feature the mighty 670 horsepower LT6 V8 motor, which is also found in the Corvette Z06. Corvette Z06. The power output can be reduced to 650 horsepower and, even though the previous generation Z/28 was manual only but the model coming out could be linked to an auto box.
If it does get the sought-after 6-speed gearbox the power may be limited to 600 horsepower. Additionally, the previous Camaro Z/28 was more than 300 pounds heavier than its ZL1 sister, and the upcoming model is expected to follow in that style. We anticipate Chevy to use a lot of carbon fiber, eliminate the sound deadening feature, use thinner glass, and possibly remove the rear seat to reduce weight.
The previous model of Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 was offered in 2014 and models of 2015. It was with an LS7 V8 engine borrowed from the Chevy C6 Corvette, which churned out 10 more lb-ft of torque as compared with the C6 Corvette Z06. The coming Camaro Z/28 is expected to follow this pattern and draw power from the LT6 visceral V8 engine of 2023’s Chevy C8 Corvette Z06.
Similar to his predecessors, the 2025 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 will flaunt racing-inspired suspension, performance brakes, and a hefty set of tires. In particular, we expect the vehicle to come with spool-valve dampers by Multimatic along with carbon-ceramic brakes made by Brembo. Radio and air conditioning were not included in the previous model, they will be standard in the 2025 version. However, it is likely to be light and fast, and extremely smooth on the racetrack.
