Introduced in 1988 as a stock racing option inspired by Chevrolet ’s involvement in Pro-Am road racing , the 1LE Package has become an iconic feature among Camaro enthusiasts looking for more than just a fast daily driver. Rarely sold by the hundreds, the bundle moved onto the 2014 model year with new ZL1-sourced enhancements and neat powertrain upgrades.
Offered with the exclusive TR6060-MM6 six-speed manual transmission, the package is yet again available on the Camaro SS , placing it between the most powerful naturally aspirated model and the supercharged ZL1 missile. Things didn’t change for the 2015 model, but the 1LE remains the same attractive and affordable muscle car that sits below the more exclusive Camaro Z/28 .
So what makes the 1LE so special you may ask? Well, it may not be as fast or as track-focused as a Z/28, but it does come with a few unique exterior parts, Camaro ZL1 -sourced interior features and enough powertrain tweaks to make it the perfect car to drive to the office during the week and at your local track on a warm Sunday.
The current 1LE is about to enter its final year on the market, so it’s about time we have a closer a look at what it has to offer until a brand-new iteration comes out.
