2017 Chevrolet Camaro 1LE: Hellcat Looking Very Pale

By  | 

The Dodge Challenger Hellcat is not an easy vehicle to go up against. With all the ponies that it has under the hood, the Hellcat is one fierce opponent but it looks like Chevrolet might finally have an answer for it.

Thanks to all the upgrades that Chevrolet made, the Chevrolet Camaro 1LE is now the one to look out for. Under the hood of the Chevrolet Camaro 1LE is a V6 engine that will be mated to the new 10-speed auto transmission.

The transmission will allow the Chevrolet Camaro 1LE to hit the 60mph mark in the first gear alone. Thanks to the upgrades, the Camaro 1LE was able to complete the Lightning Lap of Car and Driver in 3 minutes and 4 seconds.

That means it is currently faster than the Ford Mustang although it is still 0.5 seconds slower than the Dodge Challenger Hellcat but considering the price of both these model, the Chevrolet Camaro 1LE is easily the winner here.

The Chevrolet Camaro 1LE retails for $34,999 while the Dodge Challenger Hellcat retails for $61,500.
