2013 Chevrolet Camaro 1LE at Roebling Road Raceway Video


The 1LE package adds performance upgrades to the already track-ready Camaro SS. Most obvious is its matte black hood, matching spoiler and 20-inch wheels. In terms of powertrain, the 426-horsepower, 6.2-liter V-8 engine carries over from the SS but the 1LE adds a new short-throw shifter for the six-speed manual. Cars.com reviewer Joe Wiesenfelder flung it around the track at the Roebling Road Raceway just outside of Savannah, Ga.

Aside from the short throw shifter, the 1LE actually has completely different gearing in the transmission and rear differential when compared to the SS. It also comes with a PCV catch can system to install whenever on the track, which should have been noted.

It would have been nice to have an unbiased opinion in this video and show more of the 1LE performance. Other sites have compared it to the GT Track Pack and even the Boss 302 and have shown that in almost all cases the 1LE is the faster an better driving car.

I usually leave the "I'm disappointed" statements to the resident GM fanatic, but in this case I feel the 1LE package wasn't given the credit it deserves.
