The Proof is in the Percentage

Sometimes discussing specs can get a little muddy and abstract. But let’s consider here a few objective measures. According to the most recent test results, the fully automatic ten-speed transmission shifts faster than the Porsche PDK by some pretty serious percentage points. From first to second gear it’s 27% faster, second to third, 26%, and from third to fourth by 36%. Those are some impressive improvements over the top leading dual-clutch in the Porsche PDK.

How They Do it

While the dual-clutch transmission is exactly what it sounds like, the Camaro ZL1 builds on that with three times as many clutches. That’s right it uses six clutches across ten gears to prime the gears in sequence. Kind of like the DCT on steroids. A spokesman from Chevrolet, Dan Nicolson says the new transmission gives the Camaro ZL1 “world-class shift times…that comes only from a true automatic”.
