Camaro ZLE 1LE: What Sets This Apart From Other Models?

Camaro ZLE 1LE: What Sets This Apart From Other Models?

The sixth generation of Chevrolet Camaro cars introduced several key design updates from their fifth-generation predecessors. As the latest iteration of these models, the ZL1 1LE Camaro inherits a new platform style along with engine modifications, a revised exterior design and a more comfortable interior loaded with some serious high-tech upgrades. What makes these latest street machines tick and stand apart from their predecessors? Read on to find out what the newest ZL1 1LE brings to the table. 

Born and Bred for Racing 

The ZL1 1LEis Chevy’s most extreme track model, boasting several racing-focused performance features under the hood:

- A 650 horsepower 6.2 liter LT4 V8 engine
- Six-speed manual transmission with Active Rev Matching for smoother downshifting
- Adjustable suspension with Multimatic DSSV front and rear dampers
- An included track cooling system with engine oil, transmission and differential coolers

Aerodynamic improvements include a one-piece exposed weave Carbon Fiber wing paired with a retooled larger 1LE front splitter built with integrated dive planes. These upgrades result in a significant amount of additional downforce for improved speed and cornering.

Aggressive Styling That Turns Heads

The 1LE package also scores high marks in the looks department with a collection of exterior modifications that set this new Camaro apart from other street and track cars. You’ll note its satin black hood, mirrors and wheels, and that exposed black Carbon Fiber hood isn’t just for better aerodynamics. The 2019 ZL1 1LE model is available in 10 eye-catching exterior colors: 

- Black
- Red Hot
- Summit White
- Silver Ice Metallic
- Mosaic Black Metallic
- Shadow Gray Metallic
- Riverside Blue Metallic
- Satin Steel Gray Metallic 
- Chevrolet also offers two additional premium finish options, Crush and Garnet Red Tintcoat.

Interior High-Tech Comfort 

The ZL1 1LE also comes with comfort-focused and high-tech interior features sure to be appreciated by speed junkies and weekend warriors alike. Its exclusive RECARO performance seats along with a suede-wrapped flat-bottomsteering wheel and shift knob significantly enhance driver comfort and safety. Meanwhile, the Performance Data Recorder captures real-time audio, video and up to 30 channels of performance data as you drive. As with other sixth-generation Camaro models, the ZL1 1LE also comes with the maker’s standard infotainment package with its 8-inch-diagonal color touchscreen along with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto phone projection compatibility and Chevrolet 4G LTE service with Wi-Fi hotspot capabilities. 

Power, Performance and Style

The ZL1 trim and the ZL1 LTE Track Performance Package firmly place this model as a cutting-edge sports car with a track racing pedigree. According to Chevrolet’s Build and Price tool, the 2019 Camaro ZL1 1LE price starts at $71,695. It’s a significant investment, but well worth it for the racing enthusiast who demands the ultimate in speed, handling and overall performance.
