The 2025 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 is a street-legal race-ready version that is race-ready and legal for the legendary Chevy Camaro. It was initially designed as a race car with the Trans Am series created by the Sports Car Club of America (SCCA). Through the years it has seen the Z/28 badge grow from the status of a “Special Performance Package” to an intimidating track legend. At present, it appears that Chevrolet has omitted Z28 Camaro in favor of the Z28 Camaro and put extra focus on the ZL1 models.
But, the purists are pushing Chevy to produce the sixth generation Camaro Z/28. Production of the gasoline-powered Camaro is scheduled to end in 2024, but the company is set to debut the 2025 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 as a last goodbye. This is everything that we can learn about the forthcoming 2025 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 along with some exclusive HotCars renders designed by digital artist Rostislav Prokop.
2025 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28: Powertrain And Performance
It is expected that the 2025 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 will be built on the same GM Alpha platform that powers Camaro ZL1 and the 6th-generation Camaro as well as Camaro ZL1. But like it, unlike the Camaro ZL1 propelled by a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 The Camaro Z/28 is expected to feature the mighty 670 horsepower V8 engine from the upcoming Corvette Z06. The power output can be reduced to 650 psi and even though the previous generation Z/28 was only manual it is expected that the new one coming out could be linked to an auto box.
If it does get the highly sought-after 6-speed motor, it could again be reduced to about 600 horsepower. Additionally, the last 2025 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 was more than 300 pounds heavier than its ZL1 predecessor and the new one is expected to follow in that style. We anticipate Chevy to make use of a lot of carbon fiber, cut out the sound deadening feature, use thinner glass, and perhaps even remove the rear seat to reduce weight.
How Fast Is The New Camaro Z/28?
The final model of the 2025 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 was offered in the 2014 and year 2015 models. It was with an LS7 V8 engine borrowed from Chevy C6 Corvette. It churned out 10 more lb-ft of torque as compared with the C6 Corvette Z06. The coming Camaro Z/28 is expected to be a follower of this trend, drawing power from the LT6 visceral V8 motor of the 2023 Chevy Corvette C8 Z06.
Like its predecessor 2025 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 will flaunt racing-inspired suspension, performance brakes, and tires that are a bit beefier. In particular, we expect the vehicle to come with spool-valve dampers made by Multimatic as well as carbon ceramic brakes made by Brembo. Radio and air conditioning were not available in the prior model, they’ll be standard in the 2025 version. But, it’s likely to be light and fast, and extremely grippy around the track.
2025 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28: Release Date and Price
While Chevy hasn’t confirmed officially the 2025 launch date of the Camaro Z28, it has been confirmed that the Camaro will be electrified by 2024. What better way to say goodbye to the legendary fuel-guzzling muscle vehicle than the stripped-down Z/28 Track weapon? If Chevy does not decide to scrap the project due to budgetary constraints, we expect it to be available at the end of next year, possibly by the fall of 2024. Around 1,000 units of the 2025 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 are expected to be built We expect that they will carry a cost between $80,000 and $90,000.
