2017 Chevrolet Camaro horsepower

What’s under your 2017 Camaro’s hood dictates how much horsepower your car will be able to generate. The base engine in the
LS
and
LT
trims
is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. It has 295 lb-ft. of torque. Sadly, it only produces an underwhelming 275 horsepower.
The most impressive engine is in the
Camaro ZL1
, which houses 650 horsepower in its supercharged 6.2-liter V8. Upon release, it was called the most powerful production Camaro to date. And get this…it can reach 0-60 in 3.5 seconds. 
The
Camaro SS
trims offer a nice midpoint at 455 horsepower from its 6.2L LT1 V-8, VVT with Direct Injection. If you like speed but are concerned with too much affecting your Camaro’s handling, this is probably the right trim for you.
