    Meet the Apex Eating 2017 CAmaro 1LE



    You’re in luck sports fans, for 2017 Chevy plans to offer the 1LE track pack on both SS and RS Camaros. Yes, you can now get a V6 with wider wheels, sticky summer rubber, track-ready suspension, aero aids and super cooling. There have even been rumbles Chevy might treat the turbo four to the same love.

    Please bring it to the 4 untouched. I will then have my first experience with ordering a new ride. Cobalt will be gone.

    My '14 1LE is at high risk for a trade in.

    No interior pics? I want to see the recaro's! Also it looks like the SS kept the lower LED DRL's which I find odd.

    That v8 1LE is awesome...

    Want a 2 plus 2 performance coupe? There is none better.

    Very well done!

    Wow!

    Seems to check all the boxes. I'm certain it'll be an impressive performer.

    Logical next step for the Gen 6. As much as I like the idea of the V6 1LE I would have to have the V8.
    I would assume that the V6 would race in a different SCCA category than the V8.

    Gotta spend the money for the v8 1LE...

    Glad the v6 1le but the v8 would be the only engine option I'd purchase...

    That 455 hp 455 tq v8 has got to be a beast for the 6th gen...

    I really don't see the BMW m4, Audi s5 or Mercedes c 63 as having any performance lead over the camaro 1ss 1LE....

    I do like DCT s but I got a feeling the 1LE would offer too much to pass up on.....

    Wow and I'm digging the front splitter and rear duck tail spoiler big time too..

    I'd just go after thar blackout rear tail light area option...I've seen on a few cars....or just get a black 1LE...

    Dam that car looks hot!

    Who would order a BMW m2 coupe over this new similarly priced camaro v8 1LE?

    I'm sorry but I bet this new 1LE crushes the BMW in road and track performance...

    Big win for American enthusiasts...

    Who would order it? Someone who has priorities other than raw road and track performance, as most buyers do?

    You need to get into the minds of the average car buyer, even the average buyer of "fast" cars. "The Camaro and BMW perform about the same for how I'm going to drive them (occasional bursts of speed on the highway, and occasional speedy jaunts through curvy roads), but if I buy the BMW, people will be more impressed with me."

    The fact that in the videos they kept saying its going to be affordable I'd say it'll be around $5k. That is A LOT of parts for the SS. For the V6, I'd say it'll be around $3k.
