If someone was going to give me a pick of the two, it would be the V every damn time.

The CTS-V and the ZL1 have been compared to each other ever since the 5th gen versions came out.

Both have the same drive trains, one is a luxury type car and one is a 'sport/muscle' type car.

Nothing wrong with the comparison.

The picture and the fact they said the ZL1 is a great track car and nothing more, I bet they haven't even driven it.

They also didn't mention the price difference probably gonna be around 20k. Yeah I would pick the ZL1. I want something that looks mean. I don't need luxury.

Like others have said before..there's a trend in the Camaro community that the Camaro must be the top of everything. Anything less than glowing praise is "bashing" and "probably from people that have never driven it" or some other reason or such.

The Camaro community is becoming increasingly insecure, which is odd considering how good the Gen 6 is.

I know right. I'm here on my second Camaro and seriously considering a third and this is coming from a guy who absolutely swore off anything GM was ever going to make until the end of time. The Camaro is just that good. It doesn't mean its beyond criticism. Hell sometimes when I point out weaknesses in the 1LE I feel like I might just be the anti-christ LOL.

That wasn't the point, they put a picture of a 1LE when they are talking about a ZL1. They said a ZL1 is only good on the track and I doubt they have ever driven one. I don't care what they say is better but there is an obvious lack of doing your homework before typing.

Am I not seeing something about the picture shown? Pretty sure that's a standard SS model. The wheels are incorrect for a 1LE model. I don't see all the flat black components of the 1LE, hood, chin spoiler, deck lid spoiler etc. Not that yu can see the brakes in the vehicle pictured, but I dont see the giant red 6 piston Brembo's of the 1LE either. Now, I don't exactly agree with the article either. The ZL1 can absolutely be a boulevard cruiser as well, not simply a track day monster. And with the MRCC suspensio, it can have just as cushy of a ride as the Caddy. Only decent point they make Is that you're sight lines are better in the Caddy.
