Camaro Show #201 – Camaro ZL1 1LE Gets An Auto

Camaro ZL1 1LE Gets An Auto

In the past, the only way to get a 1LE Camaro, including the ZL1 1LE Camaro, was in manual transmission form. Well, everything you have known has now changed. Beginning the end of February 2019 you will be able to get the 10-speed automatic in the Camaro ZL1 1LE.

During development, Chevy engineers pushed the limits of the automatic transmission to be more than one half second faster than the standard manual on General Motors’ 2.9-mile Milford Road Course. In fact, on longer tracks like the Nürburgring where you can take advantage of the lightning-quick shifts and all 10 gears, drivers can expect to shave off several seconds from their previous lap times with the six-speed manual ZL1 1LE.

“This transmission is optimized for speed,” said Camaro Chief Engineer Mark Dickens. “With unique Track Mode calibrations and 10 gears, you are always in the perfect gear when rolling on or off the throttle. You may not be a professional race car driver, but now you can shift like one.”

The ZL1 1LE Track Performance Package has an MSRP of $7,500 and the available 10-speed automatic transmission an MSRP of $1,595.
