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.

Special Features in the Chevrolet Camaro


Chevrolet’s all-new Camaro is equipped with a 4-cylinder turbocharged engine coupled by modern hardware. If you are looking for a fuel-efficient car in this segment, then this is one of the best cars to own. Moreover, it is equipped with powerful optional V8 and V6 engines that are capable of providing you a quiet and smooth ride. The 2016 Camaro from Chevrolet has been given a complete revamp as far as its design is concerned. Here are some of its special features:

  1. A completely different platform has been used to build Camaro– The new Chevy Camaro has a lot of similarities with its previous model. It is also influenced by General Motor’s Alpha platform that can be seen in its Cadillac variants namely ATS and CTS in place of the previous Zeta platform. Some of its underbody parts are quite different and cannot be interchanged.
  1. The V-8 engine of Camaro has three radiators in it– Camaro’s primary radiator is placed strategically whereas the other two more compact radiators are positioned at 90 degrees on its either side.
  1. Camaro has a first of its kind 4-cylinder engine as standard since the last thirty years- The entry level of its LT model features a four-cylinder engine. This is an achievement of a sort being the first such engine in last three decades. It comes with a capacity of 2.0 l and draws its inspiration from ATS with 270 hp and a torque of 290 lb-ft.
  1. Camaro’s automatic transmission cooler is horizontally placed– Camaro’s V 8’s three radiators form a box and beneath it is a transmission cooler positioned horizontally so that air can flow in a downward direction.
