Camaro Exorcist

If classic horror movies have taught us anything, it’s this: when there’s a demon, you need an exorcist to overpower it and get rid of it. As it currently stands in the world of performance cars, the same statement rings true. For every 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon that’s released this fall, there will be a Hennessey Exorcist Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. And just like in the movies, in the end the Camaro Exorcist comes out on top.

The Dodge Challenger Demon offers up an 840 horsepower powertrain with 770 lb.-ft. of torque. There’s no denying that those are numbers that would have any speed-enthusiast drooling. However, compared to the Hennessey Exorcist Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, which is predicted to pump out more than 1,000 horsepower, those numbers are not so impressive. Drivers who crave the most thrilling performance out there will no doubt want to find a way to check this car off of their bucket list.

However, that may not be such an easy task. The Camaro Exorcist will go for a pretty hefty price, and Hennessey expects to make no more than 100 a year. If this seems like a pipe dream to you, don’t worry. There are plenty of other takes on the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro that offer more than enough thrill to go around. Stop in at Nehl’s Chevrolet today to take one of these performance cars for a spin that’s sure to shake the demons out of you.

New Chevrolet Camaro and Ford Mustang Share Gearbox

New Chevrolet Camaro
The newest Camaro will get an all new gearbox inside a design that holds true to its heritage.

If you’re a diehard muscle car enthusiast, odds are you’ve already heard that Ford and Chevrolet have teamed up to develop a new gearbox. As unlikely as it sounds, the idea behind the joint development was to save money as both automakers can use the new 10-speed automatic transmission. As it turns out, both the new Chevrolet Camaro and Ford Mustang will share the new transmission.

This is the same transmission that Chevrolet has already claimed shifts faster than Porsche’s PDK dual-clutch. That’s not something to take lightly and that means both the Camaro and Mustang could become more performance-driven than ever before.

That’s good news for performance enthusiasts, especially since Chevrolet has already ruled out both a hybrid, diesel, and all-wheel drive Camaro. With the latest Camaro preparing to hit markets, it’s good to hear that the engineering and design teams won’t leave the muscle car’s history in the dust.

“Those of us that work on the Camaro are purists, we love the original, long hood, the strong shoulders, the mantra that ‘nobody needs a Camaro, they want a Camaro.’ You know, I think for the foreseeable future, you’re going to see us stay true to Camaro heritage,” said Al Oppenheiser, head engineer of Camaro.

Here at Nehls Chevrolet, we can’t wait to see the Camaro smoke the Mustang, new gearbox and all!

Chevy Teases Fans with Glimpse of Next-Generation Camaro in Detroit

Next-Generation Camaro

We didn’t get the full reveal of the next-generation Camaro we were hoping for at the North American International Auto Show, but we did get an all-too-quick glimpse of the eventual new model (we think). Though the Chevrolet Bolt electric vehicle headlined the lineup, Chevy also showed an image of five new models coming to production this year. The image only revealed silhouettes, but we’re pretty sure one of those silhouettes was that of a Camaro.

The image has been enhanced online now—and the more we look at it, the more it looks like a Camaro to us here at Nehls Chevrolet. The folks at CamaroNews isolated the supposed Camaro silhouette, which features the familiar body design of the popular sports car and a pointier, edgier front grille design. Overall, if this is the new Camaro, it promises to be an exciting new variation on the sport car’s iconic theme.

The Camaro silhouette was joined by silhouettes for new generations of the Cruze, Malibu, and Spark. Also pictured was the Chevrolet Bolt, although that vehicle was already present in concept form at the auto show. Of course, as practical and progressive as the Bolt will be, it’s unlikely to upstage the Camaro in terms of excitement. The new Camaro, with its more aerodynamic design, will hit the market sometime later this year, so make sure to check back with us often for updates!

Chevrolet Offers Excellent New Upgrades for Camaro SS Owners

2015 Chevy Camaro SS

If you own a car as performance-driven and powerful as the Camaro SS, you obviously want it to run as smoothly and hungrily as possible. Thankfully, Chevy knows its customers very well; the brand has revealed some great upgrades and accessories to spice up your Camaro with 1LE and Z/28 parts. These parts allow you to perform even great feats of wonder in your Camaro SS.

Mark Dickens, the director of Chevrolet performance, explained the appeal of the added parts in a press release. “The standard Camaro SS offers a great balance of style and performance, ideal for street driving.

Of course, to take advantage of all these new upgrades for Camaro SS models, you’ll need to actually own a Camaro SS first. Come visit us at Nehls Chevrolet to see our vast inventory and interact with our friendly staff today. We’ll find the perfect Camaro SS for you—and start your journey to performance car perfection right away.

Chevy Takes National Name Your Car Day to a Whole New Level

The 2014 Camaro Z/28 is pricey, but it's a beauty as well.
The Z/28 has been in the spotlight since last year when it made its entrance into the New York Auto Show.

It seems like there is a special day or month for every “holiday” you can imagine. One of our favorites is National Name Your Car Day (for obvious reasons), which was on October 2nd. This year, Chevy celebrated in style by announcing that fans would have the opportunity to name the brand’s 2015 Camaro SS special edition, which will take the SEMA stage by storm in January 2015.

Using #NameThatCamaro, you can submit your name suggestions for the Camaro on Chevy’s Twitter and Facebook pages.

“Chevrolet has made a tradition of offering special-edition models each spring, but this is the first time we’ve turned to the community of Camaro fans to name it,” said Todd Christensen, marketing manager for the Camaro. “We can’t think of a better way to involve the owners and enthusiasts who have made it the segment’s best-selling sports car for four years running.”

The special edition is painted a vibrant Emerald Green Metallic with Cyber Gray rally stripes, a body-color rear spoiler, and Chrome Dusk 21-inch accessory wheels. Its interior features black coloring with Graphite Silver accents.

2014 Camaro Z/28 Comes with a Price

The 2014 Camaro Z/28 is pricey, but it's a beauty as well.

The 2014 Camaro Z/28 comes at a price, and that was emphasized this week on a financial note.

Chevrolet announced this week that the 2014 Camaro Z/28 will cost $75,000, including destination fees and gas-guzzler tax.

The reason for the high price is due to the fact that the Camaro is built for one thing, and that is high speed. Its 7.0-liter aluminum V8 engine pumps out 500 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque.

The six-speed manual is one of the most expensive Chevrolet cars on the market. The 2013 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 only cost more ($76,595).

Chevrolet will take orders for the 2014 Camaro Z/28 later this month. Customers can expect to start seeing the Camaros on dealer lots in the spring just in time for racing season.
