2016 Chevrolet Camaro 1LE May Debut At Chicago Auto Show

| |

Apparently, the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro 1LE will be unveiled in just two days time at the Chicago Auto Show.

Autonews says that the new Camaro 1LE will debut alongside refreshed Trax, Colorado and Silverado models and promises to bring with it a host of performance improvements over the already-impressive sixth-gen Camaro SS.

The 1LE is likely to be powered by the same naturally-aspirated 6.2-liter LT1 V8 engine as the SS but could produce slightly in excess of the existing model's 455 hp. Alongside some engine tweaks, it'll have a revised suspension system and potentially, beefed-up brakes to make it even more suitable for use at the racetrack.

When launched, the new 1LE will top out the sixth-generation Camaro range, but only briefly. A new ZL1 is already in the works and has been spied testing at the Nurburgring Nordschleife on multiple occasions.

Additionally, a new Z/28 is likely to arrive sometime in the coming years, but for enthusiasts too impatient to wait that long, the new 1LE could prove the ideal compromise between performance and price.
