Word around the Internet campfire is Chevrolet will unveil the 2017 Chevy Camaro 1LE on Thursday, February 11 at the 2016 Chicago Auto Show.
Automotive News reported that Chevy’s newest automotive track star will share the Windy City stage with updated versions of Chevy’s Colorado and Silverado pickup trucks, as well as the Trax subcompact crossover.
The new Camaro 1LE will feature a number of suspension upgrades, the details of which are not yet known. The body will be modified from the SS package, but will share the 455-horsepower, 6.2L LT1 V8 engine.
According to Motor Authority, the 1LE package dates back to 1989 when Chevy was trying to make the Camaro more competitive in the Showroom Stock road racing series.
The 2017 model year is the first time the 1LE package is also being made available to V6-powered Camaros, due to customer demand.

Would really like to see the return of the days when you could order options, i.e. the 409 Biscayne, the ’57 150 sedan with FI or dual quads (270 hp version) without having to take the high option / high dollar “take it or leave it order sheet”. But then, maybe this is why we do resto-mods and support the after market industry, to get what we want or can afford. The price of the specialty factory hod rod is getting out of hand.
