It’s almost a no-brainer for Chevrolet to bring forth the excellent Camaro 1LE for the sixth-generation of the vehicle.
The previous Camaro 1LE offered up track-day performance that was easy on the checkbook with the addition of stickier Goodyear tires, borrowed from the fifth-generation Camaro ZL1, and plenty of other small upgrades to piece together a formidable track toy. And it was only $3,500 more over a regular Camaro SS.
Here, we have video from a Camaro6 forum member of what could be a 2017 Chevrolet Camaro 1LE prototype perusing San Diego. We agree with the video’s 1LE branding for a few reasons. This prototype wears different wheels from the 2017 Chevy Camaro ZL1 test mules we’ve seen, and it lacks the more aggressive front fascia and aero parts.
We do see larger brakes, however, and a front splitter has been added. It seems like just the right mild modifications for a 2017 Camaro 1LE.
We don’t know for sure, but we do know we can’t wait to see what the Camaro team comes up with after a glorious base vehicle on the superb Alpha platform.
