*Gasp!* A Ford headline on GM Authority? What is going on? Catch your breath, dear reader, because this has everything to do with the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro 1LE.
Last week, Chevrolet revealed the 2017 Camaro 1LE at the 2016 Chicago Auto Show, and we discovered it’s likely going to outperform the Shelby GT350. That’s straight from the Camaro man’s mouth himself, a Mr. Al Oppenheiser.
Ford Authority reports the GT350 will now feature the MagneRide suspension, aluminum strut tower brace, transmission/differential coolers, and raised decklid spoiler as standard equipment in an effort to counter the incoming track weapon that is the 2017 Camaro 1LE.
This is significant, because the 2017 Camaro 1LE is simply a package of equipment in addition to what makes the Camaro SS superb. The Shelby GT350 is a standalone, high-performance variant from the Mustang.
Like Oppenheiser stated, everyone knew the Camaro team would punch back, but it seems the GT350 may now be scrambling to catch its breath.
