The Chicago Auto Show is scheduled to open its gates to the wide audience later this week and we have a report that says Chevrolet will treat fans to the Camaro 1LE.
There isn’t much information to go with regarding this particular version of the all-new Camaro but we can safely assume the past will reproduce itself and the Camaro 1LE will be sourced from the regular Camaro SS. Even that’s a rather slim approach but the rumors flying around the mill also talk about a modified suspension and even “several body updates.” The model is apparently geared towards track-day enthusiasts and we can remember how the predecessor Camaro 1 LE boasted a matte black hood, a front splitter, as well as 20-inch alloy wheels with Goodyear Eagle Supercar G:2 rubber. The cabin also featured some tweaks and treats, including a flat-bottom steering wheel and a short-throw shifter adorned in a sueded-microfiber material.
Of course fans should expect the best modifications to be hidden from the eyes under the metal body as the past generation Camaro 1 LE came with an uprated sport-tuned suspension with bigger stabilizer bars and bespoke monotube rear dampers, a strut tower brace, a high-capacity fuel pump, and an exclusive six-speed manual transmission that used a air-to-liquid cooling system and a 3.91 final-drive ratio. Fans will most likely be eager to snatch the new Camaro 1LE off the dealerships’ grid especially if the pricing remains competitive – meaning below the $40,000 mark.
