2017 Chevrolet Camaro 1LE: Available With a V-6 or a V-8

Chevy Camaro 5

Fans of a vehicle with muscle will always opt for the V-8, regardless of any other choices that may be available to them.  Many internet commenters will disregard the idea that a V-6 or a turbocharged four-cylinder vehicle could be considered fun.


The 1LE package was re-introduced on the previous-generation (fifth-generation) #Chevy Camaro after being away for more than 10 years.  This 1LE package incorporates wider wheels and sticky summer tires, a track-ready suspension setup,  mild aerodynamic add-ons and extra cooling for the engine and driveline.  The 1LE package was previously offered only on the V-8–powered SS model.


The new 1LE package is an option on V-6 Camaros, too. So, this means there are two 1LE kits, one for the V-8 and one for the V-6. Both are tuned similarly to deliver serious on-track performance for not a lot of money.


The 1LE packages are specific to each engine due to the engine’s distinctly different weights.  For the six-cylinder 1LEs, the package is basically the FE3 suspension from a stock, V-8 Camaro SS with a few tuning tweaks.  Some other enhancements for the V6 1LE include Brembo four-piston front brake calipers and enhanced cooling (transmission, engine and differential oils).


Setup of the V-8’s includes more aggressive tires, specifically Goodyear rubber with Corvette-like section widths of 285/30 up front and 305/20 in back.


You get a chassis upgrade with the Chevy Camaro 71LE package. But the 1LE package does restrict buyers to the six-speed manual transmission.  The stick-shift Camaro V-6 gets to 60 mph in 5.4 seconds and the Camaro V-8, with the quicker automatic, gets to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds.
