2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 Price Revealed

The all-new, track-ready 505hp Camaro will be priced at $75,000

Its official, the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 has been priced at $75,000 price tag. While that price may seem steep, we assure you, finding another vehicle that performs as well as this Camaro would be hard to find. Case in point, the Z/28 is faster than the Camaro ZL1, Porsche 911 Carrera S, and the Lamborghini Murcielago LP640. That’s not all either. Read on to find out what else sets this Camaro apart from the competition and some of those other, high-end exotics!

The 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 is powered by a hand-built 7.0L LS7 engine featuring a dry-sump oiling system good for 505 hp and 481 lb-ft of torque. The powerhouse connects through a six-speed manual transmission, the only available transmission. It will have a Torsen limited-slip differential and helical gear set. Chevy’s performance Traction Management system will allow the driver to adjust the level of throttle and braking intervention for their level of comfort.

Expect the all-new Z/28 to be 100% ready for track duty thanks to a lightweight and stiff suspension. Four-way, spool-valve damping control will allow mechanics from the factory to precisely tune both bump and rebound settings. These adjustments will help with high-speed and low-speed wheel motions giving a dramatically greater damper stiffness. Any Z/28 driver will experience stiffer spring and bushing rates for improved cornering response. This cornering setup is a huge advantage over the competition. The Camaro also has an impressive 1.08 g in cornering acceleration.

On the stopping side, Brembo Carbon Ceramic Matrix rotors will be at all four corners for lightweight, efficient stopping power. Fixed, monoblock calipers will also be behind each wheel; the front will come with six-piston calipers, and the rear will see four-piston calipers. Drivers can expect 1.5 g in deceleration - That’s huge! Hiding the brakes at every corner will be 19-inch forged aluminum wheels wrapped in P305/30ZR19 PZero Trofeo R tires. Chevy boasts it’s the widest front tire combination on any production car.

The 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 doesn’t just perform like a race car, it looks and feels the part too. Only five color choices will be available for the exterior: Red Hot, Black, Silver Ice Metallic, Ashen Gray Metallic, and Summit White. The outside will also see major down force from the front and rear spoilers, and also operational front cooling ducts for the brakes. The interior is kept simple with a matte-metallic finish called Octane, a flat-bottom steering wheel, Recaro seats, and one speaker. Only one option is available on the Z/28: a $1,150 air conditioning and six-speaker package. Besides, who needs a radio when you’ve got a high-revving, naturally aspirated 7.0L under the hood?

The all-new Z/28 was built with one purpose in mind: racing. Channeling the cars deep roots in the Trans AM races, the 2014 Z/28 features loads of weight reductions. First and foremost, the car’s weight was reduced by lightening the rear seat, removing the spare tire in favor of a tire-inflator kit, trunk carpet, and HID headlamps and fog lights were even sacrificed as well. Some interior sound deadener material was also removed in an effort to save weight. A smaller battery was installed, and thinner rear-window glass was used. No safety was compromised to achieve the Z/28’s impressive 3,937lbs.

Chevrolet Performance is starting 2014 right with an impressive line-up of cars. The revamped Camaro SS, Supercharged ZL1, SS sedan, Corvette Stingray convertible and soon-to-be released 2015 Corvette Z06 will all compile to make an award-winning powerhouse for Chevy. Expect the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 to be available for order in late January. The first cars are expected to be delivered to customers in the spring. The first Camaro Z/28, VIN 0001, will be auctioned at Barrett Jackson Auction during the Scottsdale, Arizona show on January 18.

Eddie - so very true - however the latest pricing on the Shelby is in the $65-75k range so alas it to is becoming pricey....

Before I say this understand I have been a loyal GM enthusiast my entire life and still am, but why would I pay 75k for a 505 hp Z28 when I can get a 662 hp Mustang for much less! GM you can do better than that!!

Bryan, I've driven Vettes I've driven Ferraris. Vette is cool but not THAT cool.

Oh yeh, the corvette is suuuuuch a stretch. It's not like it outperforms cars costing twice as much or more on a regular basis.

No, If they wanted a TA racer then it needs a 302 like the original... At that weigh it going to eat tires like crazy.

So many ignorant idiots on here. 4th gen was not axed due to sales. It was political BS with Canada. No Mustang as of 2014 and older could EVER Br made to match this car for almost any price. Especially not for 75k. I too hate this pricetag but morons have been paying 75,000+ for POS Mustangs for a LONG while now. This Z/28 is greater than the S197 And older stands could ever DREAM of being. The Shelby America GT350 Track fighter will run you 80,000+ and even the R spec 624hp version will fail to compete with this Z/28. That being said if Chevy wanted to stay true to Z roots then it would be priced no more than half the cost of a ZL1 like it was in the 60s. However that would mean Chevy would not have been able to make this INSANELY awesome car. This car is a performance bargain at any price

I'd rather put that kind of cash into a 67-69 Z-28, that would likely kick the new one's ass !! Very nice, but let's not price them out of reach, so that the Blue Collar person can't have some fun too ...... seriously !!

Renee Draucker-Ratterman

for 75k I think GM is crazy, the average working person cannot afford it so only certain people in certain income bracketts will be able to buy making GM very unpopular! For 75 k most people will opt for a house!

also look at the crowd driving these new camaros...same as the vettes, old people who drive under the speed limit and wouldn't drop the hammer to save their ass! sad to me

if it were converted to the new firebird concept by the factory and they knocked off about 30k i'd come see about it.

18 inch wheels and fender spacer looks better. 427 with 505hp ok....3800 lbs to heavy...75 K no way...

$ too high. Love the cars, but I just dont see 75K.

It's really nice! But on the other hand... Anyone could take a 1st gen, 2nd gen, or 3rd gen camaro, buy an LS7 crate motor and still be under $75K! Plus the older cars are lighter! Building a 500 HP gen 1 sbc is common nowadays. Nothing new. Slightly over rated. The original 69 has better body lines. 75K is way over the hill for a camaro. I could could do this with a Chevy Monza at a 1/3 of that!

I'd rather have something the same size and weight as a 67 z28; 3200 lbs with a 7000 rpm 302 screamer with 415 hp & 375 lb-ft. Same power/weight ratio, totally doable.

Kari Beth Garbowicz, it definitely has lost some of its agressive styling. Someone remarked that the rear end is starting to look like a Honda Accord.

Phil Landers

Still heavy, ugly and the tail lights got WORSE! That body needs to go to the gym.

Kari Beth Garbowicz

What did they do to the back tail lights? Not so sure I like those... and a few tweaks will get my Charger more horsepower than this too ;)

That's Corvette price, gotta drop weight and price to be realistic.
