I thankfully believe you are not right. The Z28 was never NEVER lighter! The VERY rigid Camaro chassis is perfect to build off of. Why just look at the capabilities of both the ZL1 and 1LE. A FORCE to be reckoned with.

I'm pretty sure 96 was the first year for the fourth gen SS's.

The right suspension parts work wonders!

And the 1LE fits in there somewhere. LOL


GM has already designated the ZL1 as the then and now Ultimate Camaro.

Also from a marketing standpoint the price gap is between the 1LE $40K and the ZL1 $55K. That is the gap to fill.

...ok, we'll just leave it at that...we want a Z/28....in a Gen5 form, with a LS7...the SS VS Z/28 argument had been played out so many times we need a taxidermist to re-do the dead horse.

Nothing official numbers wise. The only thing we have heard is that it will pull 1G in corners..... Impressive for a "stock" Camaro but they CAN do better. That is where us Z/28 faithful hope we are heading.

Back in my day everyone in my town wanted an SS of some sort if they were chevy nuts.

I ran Mopars back then so I didn't really care for any of them. I've since then found a love for Many of them.

Does this help? (Not my idea of course)

Base = SS
Grand Sport = 1LE

It appears from what has been released up to this point that the 1LE is an SS option with an enhanced suspension for better handling, it appears that it will have the SS LS3 engine which may or may not have slightly more HP, it has some different hood/paint treatments, etc. That is what can be gathered from what they have released so far, they have not released all of the details yet, so info is not complete at this time.

Seeing that kind of stuff and "The Book" helped me choose the SS over the Coyote Ford. Good decision.
