Chevy Rolls Out 10-Speed Transmission For The Camaro ZL1

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - A very powerful sports car it may be, yet GM opted to offer the ZL1’s with an automatic transmission. Not just any auto, though, but a 10-speed one. Why not a dual-clutch, as is the norm in most other manufacturers? Well, according to Chevrolet it upshifts faster than a dual-clutch transmission and comes with a wider overall gear ratio spread to optimize performance and efficiency, thanks to its wider 7.39 overall gear ratio spread, which intensifies acceleration off the line with an aggressive 4.70 first gear.
