Many people are waiting for the arrival of the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 as this is going to be the first muscle car to offer the ten speed automatic gears. In first gear of the six speed manual the vehicle is able to reach 60mph.

The Chevrolet Camaro 1LE on the other hand has the V6 engine and this has been getting attention due to the fact that it does come with a price tag that is cheaper than the Camaro SS.

People were surprised to find out that the cheaper vehicle can rival the Dodge Challenger Hellcat and its 707 horses, around the Lightning Lap of Car and Driver.

The Chevrolet Camaro 1LE V6 came ahead of the Ford Mustang with the V6 engine and this meant it was the fastest for under $34, 999. The time was 3 minutes and 4 seconds and it was behind the Hellcat by just 0.5 seconds. Bear in mind that Hellcat has a price of $62, 500.

The supercharged V8 Hellcat gives up 707 horsepower and 650 torque, while the Chevrolet Camaro 1LE V6 has 335 horses and 284 torque and the vehicle is half the price. The Ford Mustang V6 previously held the record of 3 minutes and 12.5 seconds.
