Following a recent report that surfaced on the Internet, Chevrolet has officially announced it will introduce the 1LE package for the new generation, 2017 Camaro.
The 2017 Chevrolet Camaro 1LE will officially debut in front of the worldwide audience during the Chicago Auto Show later this week and will be available on the V8-packing SS version, but also for the first time on the V6 version as well. The latter is adopting the 1LE package starting from the LT trim and comes with a host of mechanical amenities such as the SS-derived FE3 suspension with stabilizer bars. The pack also adds four-piston Brembo calipers on the front axle and a mechanical limited slip differential with a 3.27 ratio. The V6 1LE also boasts 20-inch forged alloys wrapped in Goodyear Eagle F1 rubber with 245/40 R20 front & 275/35 R20 rear dimensions. Other goodies include the SS-derived fuel system, a track-cooling package (with engine oil, differential, transmission coolers), Recaro seats, as well as a video/data recording system. Design changes are limited but include unique high flow upper and lower grille with satin black finish that has also been adopted by the hood, front splitter, and three-piece rear spoiler.
Switching to the V8 Camaro SS 1LE will treat the owner to a new FE4 suspension with special tuning of the Magnetic Ride dampers, springs, and stabilizer bars. There’s also an electronic limited slip differential with 3.73 ratio and a dual mode exhaust system. The Brembo brakes are also here, but with six-piston monoblock front calipers painted in red and two-piece rotors bigger than the regular ones. The 1LE pack also adds a track-cooling package, satin black accents, Recaro front seats, and unique 20-inch wheels. The pricing is rumored to stay in line with the previous model’s $3,500 option and the automaker is tipped to start delivering them before the year ends.
