The 2017 Chevrolet Camaro 1LE arrived on the market and it was surrounded by a lot of attention as it brought the new ten speed automatic gears. At this time it was the first vehicle to have the 10 gears and this meant it could reach 60mph when the vehicle was only in first gear.

The engine in the Chevrolet Camaro 1LE is the V6 and it comes with a price tag that is lower than what you would have to pay for the Chevrolet Camaro SS 1LE. Some people couldn’t believe it when they realised that it had gone up against the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, which offers 707 horses, it went around the Car and Driver Lightning Lap.

The Chevrolet Camaro 1LE was put up against the Ford Mustang and both have the V6 engine, with the Camaro coming out in front. This made the vehicle the fastest to have a price tag under $34, 999. The time around the track was 3 minutes and 4 seconds. The Dodge Hellcat managed to beat it by 0.5 seconds but the Challenger SRT Hellcat has a price tag of $62, 500.

The Dodge Challenger Hellcat offers the V8 engine and 707 horsepower and 650 torque. The Chevrolet Camaro 1LE has 335 horsepower and 284 torque but the price tag is half of what you would pay for the Hellcat. The Ford Mustang offers the V6 engine and this had been the previous holder of the record as it went around the track in 3 minutes and 12.5 seconds.
