Design Features and Interior
When compared to the other trims, the ZL1 was seen wearing the current face of Chevrolet Camaro. The other trims of the Camaro have decent amount of camouflage right in the front and it was just impossible to understand what remained under the camouflage. The camouflage is clear indication of the fact that some major styling changes have been implemented in the front fascia of the other trims– the SS and 1LT trims. There are speculations that the trims might have blocky and big camo schnoz applied. The front end looks to be less upright. The vehicles might also have a shark-like nose, at a downward angle.
Along with this change, there are alterations in the headlights of the 2021 Chevrolet Camaro trims. There are significant changes in the LED strip; this now extends to a more upward position. The current position of the light has been occupied by a conventional looking parking light. The whole headlight area in the vehicle has also been made larger. The new headlights are prominently visible in the spied images.
Major changes have been brought about in the front fascia of the vehicle. On the rear side, the changes that have been made are minor. When the taillights are checked, it seems that they have been given more texture and depth, enhancing the overall appearance of the rear side of the vehicle. Another attractive thing about the rear side of the vehicle is the chunky lip, which runs on the outer lines of the lower bumper above the tailpipes. The changes are minor, yet they are prominent in nature.
