Camaro-LE1

The all new sixth generation Camaro will again be offered in the 1LE package. The 1LE designation may be lesser known to car buyers, but what the badging refers to is a “Performance on the Track” package and will be offered with both V6 and V8 options. The 2017 model will be debuting at the Chicago Auto Show.

The 1LE is all about being able to take a street car right on to the track and most importantly be able to record faster lap times than the stock Camaro. This is all done by focusing on three things, grip, handling and cooling. The 1LE package has a specially designed aero package that helps to generate more downforce on the track. The suspension has been beefed up to help in the handling department. Larger brakes are used to help the car maintain better braking performance throughout the track day, and better ventilation and air channeling is utilized at the front to bring more cool air through the engine bay.

Throughout muscle car history, automakers have produces a variety of optional packages for customers to choose to build their own dream cars. The LE1 package is just one of many choices in the Chevy options department. The most interesting one in this year’s offering is still a V6 engine choice. Although lacking in power compared to its V8 counterpart, the LE1 V6 package is uniquely combined together to make the car drive and perform at it’s peak ability. I for one love the sound of a good American V8, but honestly Chevy’s V6 bellows out quite a note as well.
