Here’s a first look at the production ’19 Camaro ZL1 testing in metro Detroit.

While almost every other Camaro variant was revealed in April, the ZL1 was unfortunately absent. Up front, the ZL1 remains unchanged, but it gets a new toned-down rear bumper, new taillights and what appears to be an additional camera (the normal backup camera is right above the license plate) built into the wing.

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 either a Tremec six-speed manual or a 10-speed automatic.

Expect an official debut in the coming months.

 

Here’s a first look at the ’20 RAM 3500 regular cab dually.

Current power is delivered from three engines: a 383hp 5.7L V8 with a compressed natural gas option, a 410hp 6.4L V8, and a 6.7L turbodiesel inline-six. The latter is available in three tunes: 350 hp with 660 lb.-ft., 370 hp with 800 lb.-ft., and 385 hp with a 930 lb.-ft. torque rating. The 5.7L and 6.4L are paired to six-speed automatic transmissions, while the three versions of 6.7L can be paired to either six-speed manuals or six-speed automatics.

Expect the 6.7L to get an additional power bump in hopes of one-upping the Ford F-350 and the Chevrolet Silverado 3500, which currently feature more horsepower and similar torque.

This is a first look at the revised Ford F-Series Super Duty. Super Duty models will undergo some moderate updates, including a new 10-speed automatic transmission and likely some of the driver safety technology that now goes under the Co-Pilot 360 name.

Bigger changes are under the hood, with a new V8 engine replacing the aging 6.8L V10 gasoline unit. According to sources, the new V8 will be a 7.0L, with production slated for Windsor, Ontario. The front end will get a new grille and redesigned headlights, while the rear will likely mimic the changes seen on the F-150, with revised taillights, tailgate and tailgate.

Look for the new Super Duty as a ’20 model.
