2017 Chevrolet Camaro 1LE Goes Up Against 707 Horsepower Hellcat

By  | 

The 2017 Chevrolet Camaro 1LE came to the market and was surrounded by attention thanks to it coming with the ten speed automatic gears and being the first vehicle to do so. It offers up plenty of speed and this is impressive as it can reach 60mph when only in first gear.

The Chevrolet Camaro 1LE comes with the V6 engine and it is offered with a price tag that is less than the Chevrolet Camaro SS 1LE. Many people were caught off guard though when they found out that the vehicle had taken on the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and its 707 horsepower when it went around the Lightning Lap of Car and Driver.

The engine in the Chevrolet Camaro 1LE is the V6 one and it went up against the Ford Mustang and its V6 engine and came out ahead. This means that it is the fastest vehicle to come with a price tag under $34,999. The vehicle went around the track in only 3 minutes and 4 seconds, while the Hellcat was just 0.5 seconds ahead of it. Bear in mind that the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat comes in with a price tag in the region of $62,500.

The engine in the Dodge Challenger Hellcat is the V8 and it offers up 707 horses along with 650 torque. The Chevrolet Camaro 1LE offers 335 horsepower and 284 torque, yet the price tag is only half of that of the Hellcat. The Ford Mustang V6 was the previous record holder when it went around in a time of 3 minutes and 12.5 seconds.
