Behold the first real-world photos of the 2019 Camaro in LT trim with the 1LE and RS packages.
Those not up to speed on the latest Camaro parlance, that means that this is the LT trim level Camaro – the one powered by the 2.0L LTG turbo four-cylinder or the 3.6L LGX V6 engine, while also being equipped with two distinct packages – the 1LE track performance handling package, and the RS appearance package.
The 1LE package is new for the four cylinder Camaro for the 2019 model year. Also new for 2019 is a restyled front and rear ends, the 3LT trim level, and various other features, such as the available Rear Camera Mirror… but that’s all besides the point. The more pertinent factor is that this is the first time we’ve seen the 2019 Camaro in LT trimmings wearing the 1LE and RS packages… in person.
The model seen here is coated in the Crush exterior color, which is also new for the 2019 model year. The front fascia is wearing the updated design that, in the case of the 2019 Camaro, is unique to the LT RS model. The same goes for the rear end, which is revised with a new fascia and new LED taillamps with dark-tinted neutral-density (clear) lenses. These lenses are standard on the SS and ZL1 models, while LS and LT Camaros without the RS package get LED taillamps with red lenses.
Notably, the 2019 Camaro LT 1LE see here is equipped with the RS package, which gives it those unique clear-lensed LED taillamps and RS-specific grille. The package also includes 20-inch 5-split spoke premium Gray-painted, machined-face aluminum wheels with a decklid mounted spoiler, but the 2019 Camaro order guide those two features are superseded on this vehicle by 1LE-specific 20-inch Black forged aluminum wheels and a Satin Black rear blade spoiler.

- Brembo 4-piston front, performance 4-wheel antilock, 4-wheel disc brakes
- External engine oil cooler
- Extra capacity cooling system
- Rear differential cooler

The GM Authority Take
Despite the heavy criticism of the 2019 Camaro refresh, it would seem that this particular model looks better in real-world pictures than it did in the renderings Chevy released initially… but maybe not.
