2017 Chevrolet Camaro 1LE

With the recent slew of auto shows coming out the Chevrolet Camaro has just gotten itself another visual unveiling. The all new Chevrolet Camaro 1LE has been released at the 2016 Chicago Auto Show. This is the sixth generation Camaro and straight out of the factory settings is looking like it is going to be something else entirely for the line of muscle cars. The car in its SS form already took the Best Car to Buy award in 2016.

The new car package comes with the 1LE package. The origin of the package goes all the way back to 1989 that was originally developed with the thought in mind for the Camaro to become more competitive with track racers. This line of the car has the ability to quickly turn left around corners without needing to add further modifications to the already stunning car.

The package deal of the 1LE being introduced in the 2017 model year has two different variations for it regarding the engines. That is both the V-6 and the V-8. The first time they equipped the Camaro with a V6 was because of consumer demands over the years and the company decided it would be best to listen to their customers.

What’s New?

The V-6 Camaro 1LE has better suspension tuning and also comes equipped with Brembo brakes and Goodyear Eagle F1 tires. Some extras that can be added in the interior of the car include Recaro bucket seats and a performance data tracker.

Now that is only some of the upgrades available for the V6. The V8 comes with a magnetic ride control and equipped suspension tuning with a new FE4. Also the car comes with some nice Goodyear Eagle F1 tires like its V6 counterpart.

The model comes exclusively with its manual transmission and black hood, splitter rear spoiler and 20-inch wheels. The aluminum-upgraded rims shine and are a great contrast to the black color of the car.  In terms of performance the 3.6 liter V-6 engine has up to 335 horsepower without any upgraded modifications, while the 6.2 Liter LT1 V-8 ramps up to 455 horsepower.

There have yet to be any performance ratings but the chief engineer at Camaro named Al Oppenheiser says that both of these cars lap previous models and that new consumers will not be disappointed in these newly released special editions.

If this is any indication that means that the new speeds are still faster than the usual Camaro SS and that is going to prove to be one fast car. Nothing less could be expected out of Camaro.

There has yet to be any pricing released for the model but there should be a market launch in late 2016. Consumers can expect to figure out what the price range is for these cars a few months prior. It was nice seeing these at the car show and to show that the cars are not only visually stunning but can still pack a punch under the hood and prove to be fast and efficient cars.
