Chevy Camaro ZL1 Offers Pioneering Transmission

The newly developed 10 speed automatic transmission found in the 2017 Chevy Camaro ZL1 offers the best of both worlds. Designed to be a beast on the track, the Camaro ZL1 can tear up a race course on weekend track days and provide a tame, efficient daily commute the rest of the week. A greater gear ratio spread provides greater fuel efficiency in the upper gears while also providing more torque in the lower gears. “We spent a lot of time crafting a 10-speed that has minimum content— low losses, light weight, (economic) package — but also give us performance and efficiency improvements over our existing products,” says Chevy transmission engineer Jim Borgensen.
