2015 z28 or new 1le?

Trying to decide which one I should buy and keep on wanting a z28 but really like th features of the new 1le.

What would you guys recommend?


Cons and pros for both car?

z28 iconic and sure to hold value at some point.

1le just as fast and a lot more creature comforts.

In the end I 'd probably go with the Z on looks and feel alone, but definitely would be on the look out for some HID headlights since chevy thought the 2 pound ballasts were too heavy to add on. LOL.

It mainly depends on the purpose of the vehicle...Do you intend to do a lot of track racing or is it going to be daily driven???The Z28 is a bad mofo, but it has it's limits in comfort and gimmicks...The 1le will have a slight performance loss, but has all the creature comforts and gimmicks...Unless you're in your 20's the Z28's possible value as a collector will not be an issue because you'll probably be dead...

No ac on the z can be a deal killer if it's ever driven on the street.

For the 2014 z28, only about 7% came without AC

I guess I'm biased since I have a z28, but I wouldn't trade mine in for a 2017 1le, wouldn't trade it in for a 2017 zl1 either though.

A new 1LE might be quicker being lighter and more power then a LS3 and less then a LS7. But go look at the G force corner data. The Z28 can pull more G's in a corner. Modding a LS7 with a Cam swap will make up that power to weight ratio in a heartbeat. Down the road the Z28 probably going to not lose money where after awhile the 1LE is looked upon like a SS.

If it were me Id buy the Z/28. If I was able to afford one at the time when I bought my 1LE I would have.
