    • Stock 2016 C7 Z06 manual vs. 2019 Camaro ZL1 10-speed automatic

      So just how big of a difference does a transmission make? GM hyped up their 10-speed automatic as shifting quicker than a Porsche PDK (which they did not prove) but obviously the transmission is one of the best automatics one can buy today.


      Sometimes you just need to see a real world comparison but unfortunately this one is not apples to apples.

      Why? The Z06 is lighter than the Camaro with better aerodynamics. Despite the weight difference and both cars being stock, the ZL1 is able to pull visibly at the moment the Z06 shifts.

      When in gear the Z06 actually seems to pull as it should according to the power to weight ratio.

      They do several pulls and the cars are close while the shift speeds are not. The automatic helps the ZL1 tremendously. It sure would be interesting to see that 10-speed box in the Z06.

        The 10spd are no joke. Still in awe over the mustangs numbers with it.
