Spy Shots—Undisguised ’19 Camaro ZL1 1LE Makes Unofficial Debut


Here’s a first look at an undisguised, production-ready ’19 Camaro ZL1 1LE testing outside of GM’s Milford Proving Grounds.

While almost every other Camaro variant was revealed back in April, the ZL1 and ZL1 1LE were unfortunately absent. Up front, the ZL1 1LE appears to remain virtually unchanged, but around back, it gets a new toned-down rear bumper, new taillights and what appears to be an additional camera (the normal backup camera is located right above the license plate) built into the satellite radio shark fin. Interestingly, the production-ready ZL1 spied in July had a similar camera built into the rear wing, not the shark fin.

Power is still expected to come from the 6.2L LT4, which is good for 650 hp and 650 lb.-ft. of torque, mated to a TREMEC six-speed manual.

Expect an official debut in the coming months.
