Two multi-port fuel injected V8 options were available; a 5-liter H.O. V8 rated at 220 horsepower was mated to a five-speed manual transmission (195 horsepower when paired with an automatic). The other engine was a new RPO B2L 5.7-liter engine.

Standard equipment on the IROC-Z included an energy-absorbing steering column, safety interlocking door latches, halogen fog lamps, four-way hazard warning flashers, back-up lights, a high-mounted stop lamp, a windshield defroster, a windshield washer system, tires with built-in wear indicators, a theft-deterrent steering column clock, black concealed windshield wipers, Computer Command Control, Camaro gold or silver lettering on the grille, ground effects style rocker panel moldings, specific body striping and IROC-Z door decals, and power steering.
