Likely to be powered by the LT4 supercharged 6.2L V8, the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 was spied at Germany’s Nürburgring. The engine has been tuned to deliver 650 hp in the Corvette, but whether it will go over 600 hp in the Camaro remains uncertain at this point.

Besides its gaping air intake, the front area of the car will also announce the vehicle’s go-fast intentions, thanks to the heat extractor placed on the hood. More-exuberant rocker panels, new double-spoke wheels, a meatier rear spoiler and more-aggressive exhaust tips complete the scenery.
 

This Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is tagged with a corporate-sounding name: FCA.

 

In addition to the FCA badge, this Hellcat flaunts a distinctive new red-white-blue color scheme using navy stripes over the car, matching navy wheels, and red mirror caps and trim around the grille. Other than the finish, this is apparently a standard Hellcat underneath. The Hellcat badges were also painted matte white to match the car. However, the FCA badge appeared where SRT is normally placed.

 

Whatever the reasoning for the FCA badge, this is a sharp addition to the Challenger lineup, even if it may appear only on the company’s letterhead.

The ’17 Ford Super Duty F-250 and F-350 are expected to get more modern with aluminum construction in the cab and bed, using lessons learned from the ’15 F-150. That, along with a rumored 10-speed automatic transmission planned for numerous rear-wheel-drive Fords in the coming years, should make the new Super Duty more efficient.

 Expect this new truck to adopt more in terms of looks with the latest F-150, even if spy photos show a significantly more blocky appearance in keeping with the Super Duty line. Power will still primarily come from a 6.2L V8. Expect to see the Super Duty on sale next year as a ’17 model.
