2LS OR 1LT????

Hey everyone,

as I keep saying the time is coming closer for me to get my Camaro :thumb up: and before I never notice that the 2LS and 1LT are only about a $800 split, so in theory I should buy the 1LT but exactly whats the difference other then the nicer wheels?

1LT has a power passenger seat. It also gives you access to option packages like the RS (wheels & headlights w/halos), Convenience & Connectivity (remote start & usb), and the Rear Camera & Sensors.

I believe the 2ls has different gears too for better gas mileage, making the lt slightly quicker?

I hope so! That would be deffintly better, I just really don't want the 2LS cause I hate the heritage rims and I like the LT rims so I don't have to blow money replacing the heritage ones

I choose 2LS because I don't like any stock rims. I also didn't need the remote start because the alarm i'm installing comes with it. I didn't want a HUD and I plan on going 3.73 gears. Do basically it just made the most sense to go with 2LS. I tell you all this to show you that it all depends on what you plan to do.

I believe that is wrong. You are correct in saying it has different gears for better gas milage but better gas milage means it has a lower gear ratio meaning they don't feel like they have more power compared to the 1LT gear ratio. I believe that the way i said it is correct but if i am incorrect feel free to correct my statement

He used the lower case lt instead of the capital LT.
Anyway I am pretty sure they use the same ratios. The auto and manual ratios are different.

Actually just checked it out. A 2LS has 2.92 gear ratios. A 1LT has 3.27 gear ratio. So meaning a 2LS will not Acclerate or be the same under speed as a 1LT.

Which one do you think is faster?

All else remaining the same it would mean the 1LT would accelerate faster but the 2LS would get better gas mileage.

This. The 1LT will have a slightly more noticeable acceleration to it.

i think the difference in the gear ratios would make a pretty noticeable difference in acceleration. people who swap out for higher ratio gears claim it makes a pretty big difference. if the price difference is only $800, i say 1LT all the way, unless getting 1-2 more miles per gallon means a whole lot to you, while acceleration doesn't.

If your looking for gas mileage, the 2LS.

If your looking for acceleration and performance, the LT. Even if you think you might slightly want performance get the LT. Notice how many of the LLT v6 guys swap to v8s and then imagine having a car that accelerates even slower than those. The 2.92 ratio will do that. Also, a thing many on here are neglecting are the wheels. With the 3.27 gears and the 10-13 pound difference in weight per rim from the lt and the ls, the lt will accelerate faster hands down. Many don't put a lot of importance on the wheels but after having ls rims and then buying the lt ones, its a massive difference in acceleration and how the car feels. The car feels more nimble with the lt wheels.

Plus yes if you feel like you might want any of the packages, the lt would be best.

I ment the 1LT is only $800.00 more then the 2LS
