This is a great time for being a Camaro Enthusiast. Trust me, this car is going to surprise people - just as the initial 5th gens did - and the ZL1 -

I'm with you on this one! I will figure out a way to get it integrated into my ZL1!!

Manual only.

I disagree. If you want to keep the price down to compete with the Boss LS, you can't expect expensive tech from a 55k car in a 40k car.

What colors are going to be offered? Any special 1LE-only colors?
I think I've seen this "color" thread before!

tho the subject remains "hot"

The 6060 going into the 1LE is purpose built for constant up and down shifting at high revs and hot temps.

You try that on any automatic except for maybe a purpose built dual clutch F1 style transmission, and you're going to cook the fluid.
The other issue is that the automatic only comes on the L99.......which has Active Fuel Management. In order to mate an automatic to the LS3 requires a LOT of work - (in terms of algorithms for engine/traction/emissions) - and then there's the CAFE issue......... The 1LE is not for everyone......it will definitely have an improvement in handling, but there is a deteriorated ride quality..........

I am glad it only comes in a manual. If this competes with a Boss for under 40K thats a great deal. But I really like the look of the Boss. I do know that I want that touch screen!

the my link screen is a huge step in making the dash look better. I am so glad i waited on a 2013 zl1 but if we could only get rid of the ugly round knobs at the bottom that would be awesome. wont stop me from buying just i personally dont like it. now that the radio area of the dash has been cleaned up some what as one of my wishes for the 2013 zl1 how bout the rest of them.... more power recaros and a tan leather option

Man i'd be pissed if I had ordered a ZL1 beign that they are held up in QC and then Chevy releases this car. That's salt in an opened wound. Not to mention the My LInk feature


Sounds like a great package to add not really a lot of money to add all the features on top of your SS.

Way to go Chevy. A happy median that is in between the SS and ZL1. I think the 1LE will surprise some people

I wonder if the differential will be any different other than the 3.91 gears. I would like to get them from gm for sure. Esp if their cheaper than lingenfelters!

It says that they will be available to order fall 2013...so the ZL1 will be out first for sure...unless the hold lasts that long....
