Report – Chevrolet Camaro 1LE could be heading to Chicago Auto Show image

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.
