General Motors gave the Camaro team one hell of a gift: the first application of the the GM-Ford, co-developed ten-speed automatic transmission. When we spoke with 2017 Chevy Camaro ZL1 engineer, Aaron Link, he told us the Camaro team has earned it through how far the vehicle has come from an engineering standpoint. The team is more than enthusiastic to be introducing new technology with the Camaro.
Above, Chevrolet has provided a look into how the new ten-speed automatic will be a game changer for not only the 2017 Camaro ZL1, but also for how consumers think about an automatic. It shifts quicker than a Porsche PDK system, and the gears continuously keep power at the driver’s fingertips.
Have a look at what Link has to say about the transmission above, and check out the rigorous testing the gearbox goes through to ensure it’s a world beater.
