I would say it depends on what your intentions are. If you plan to track it or just love the look of the 1LE then it's a no brainer. However if you just want the rumble of the V8 and go cruising then a regular SS is the way to go.

Also worth mentioning is the 1LE is manual only so that's a deal breaker for some. Manual is my preference so it was an easy decision for me.

Hope this helps!

The handling difference between the SS and the 1LE are night and day, you will love it.

Ok, ok... Since you hate the 1LE so much, I'll trade you straight up; my 1LS for your ratty old 1LE with no extra charge to you to take it off your hands....

I had a 12' 2SS 45th and liked it but going to a 13' 2SS 1LE showed there is quite a difference. Handling is much better, acceleration is better due to the 3.91 gears & close ratio trans, the shorter throw shifter lifted from the ZL1 is better and I like the distinct cosmetic differences that set it apart (wheels, hood wrap, steering wheel & shift knob) .

My only "gripe" if you can call it that is maybe finding the right tire for the 1LE if I need to have it for off season driving. Right now it's a garage queen during poor weather and planned that way for winter months but who knows what the future really holds.

Thanks for the input. I guess I should of been a little more specific. I'm going to drive it mostly out ridding around not much at the track. I like to cornering fast on the back country roads. Really like the look of the 1le.

Even if you don't like the 1LE, it's a great deal. You can sell the wheels/tires and cover most, if not all of the cost of the package.

I haven't owned a camaro since my 89 Iroc-Z convertible. That was a great car. Was not a fan of the gen 4 cars so I owned a BMW 3 series, VW Toureg V8, HHR SS (still own) since then. I'm now in a market for a camaro and while I like the SS and love the ZR1, it's the 1LE that really has me back buying a camaro. I drove one a few weeks back and absolutley loved it.

Good luck on your decision!

SS owners rave about their Camaros and I've heard nothing but positive remarks from owners with the 1LE package. You should take one for a test drive when you can!

No. The differences are only in 1st through 4th. Final drive ratio is the same.

The ratios are all different but the overdrives come out the same.
As for mileage comps start with the sticker.
One of our members wrote a program to calc gear ratios. If I correctly input the numbers this is how their gear speeds compare.
1LE numbers are printed
SS numbers are penciled in
Min RPM was arbitrary
Max RPM is the published LS3 redline
