1LE for 2016 Camaro

So the wife has always complained about the manual. I tried to help her learn, unfortunately she does not like manual. So she said if you want you can trade your car in for one with an automatic. Now with that said, I wounder if GM would do something along the line of the Z51 and allow a 1LE to have an automatic... Or else I will have to wait for a ZL1....

So perhaps I will be looking into a 2016 Camaro... and the wife isnt the full blame. I knew full well that my left knee was an issue (military related) so now it may be time for an auto.

Anyway hope the 16 Auto will be something to look at.

So how often does she think she will use it. We did this when we bought our 02 SS and got the automatic. She drove it twice and realized it was more power then she bargained for. After that we never ever got an automatic pony car.

The 1LE is basically what GM learned after making the SS. It was a package that only existed because GM could do better. It's what the SS was supposed to be. GM, having learned these lessons with the 1LE, will probably implement them right away with the next Camaro SS. If a 1LE exists in the 6th generation, it will be a whole different track machine.

What about a professional lesson(s)? I won't get specifics, but sometimes certain people of an unspecified gender can be difficult.

Also, if I were going to teach stick, I wouldn't do it on a Camaro. I would look into rent a wreck and a 4 cylinder much less powerful car.

I don't buy this. The 1LE is not the 'new' SS because they figured out they could do better. The 1LE was made for an entry level track car. It is DEFINITELY not built for the ordinary SS driver that likes a smooth soft ride.

Yes and No.

They will probably put almost if not everything that came on the 1LE on the 16. Ford and Dodge do the same.

Look at the 08 Bullitt and Boss 302 as an example. All specialty cars, yet a lot of their features were inherited by the following year model.

Future 1LE will be released when? I'll throw this in. It took '2010-2012', 3 years to introduce the 1LE as a package for the SS. How long this time, with a whole new platform?

Does she let you have your balls back when you leave the house, or does she keep them in her purse at all times?

You can get an auto 1LE now, well sort of.
There is one at a dealer in STL that has a manual with this package.
V8 Coupe Performance Package
Includes:
Black-painted engine cover
Strut tower brace
Chevrolet« 1LE« performance suspension
Performance decals and performance sill plates


However, went to Chevrolets site & it allowed the build of a L99/auto with this Performance Package option.
@ $2995. You do not get the wheels nor the flat black vinyl. Did not read to see what the rear gearing would be(with an auto). The manual car at link is 3.45 vs the 1LE @ 3.91.

It is an option anyway. Think it may be over priced vs the 1LE at $3500.

1LE right off the bat in 2016. I see no way GM is going to let Ford have a "track pack" Mustang while having nothing to offer. This "track toy" horse is out of the barn. There ain't no putting it back.

It would seem these days somethings could be developed faster. Look how much R&D, the GT350 has been going thru. The 5th Gen 1LE set a high bar, it has to be developed right going forward. With the small numbers of 1LE's sold, who knows what GM will do.

I think it will just be an option like it is today.

Unless your wife is driving your Camaro every other day, I wouldn't get the automatic.
