    RUMOR: 2017 Camaro ZL1 to get 777hp?!

    This should totally be posted in the GMI Rumor section but I'm blocked from posting in that section.


    I was just looking on Wiki for info on the Gen V LT4, and granted, being user offered info it isn't exactly the greatest news source by far, but there was an entry on it that says the 2017 Camaro ZL1, marked with "LTK" will make 777hp. Which one of you knuckleheads edited the wiki page just to mess with people?!

    Sorry about that, I didn't think making that "minor alteration" to the LT4's Wiki page would show up here.

    It's the 666tq that really makes it unbelievable. I wish someone would have put in 7xx, I bet more stories would have popped up before now.

    That would just be a tire shredder, most likely same power as CTS V

    It sounds like it is going to be one hell of a fast muscle car.

    Not a Problem... The ZL1 was originally supposed to be for the Strip. so Save the ZL1 for the Strip and have the Z28 for the Track.

    I could see this happening to future GM products. If the new Zo6 has 650 Hp, CTSV 630 Hp, I could predict A bump in the future to 700 Hp-800 Hp for top of the line Corvette, Caddy, Camaro.

    GM doesn't have the stones to drop an engine with that power rating into a Camaro.
    Current Vehicles:
    1999 Tahoe 4x4 - daily driver
    1999 Camaro Z28 - bolt-on weekend vehicle
    2015 Equinox LTX - wife's car

    Are you willing to put your stones on the chopping block if they do?
