Chevrolet revealed its tweaked 2019 Camaro lineup on Monday, April 9 which includes an addition in the automaker’s first-ever Turbo 1LE model.
Also new for model year 2019 is the 10-speed automatic transmission that comes with paddle shifters and “custom launch control and line lock.” Chevy’s new Camaro Turbo 1LE now joins the automaker’s V6, 1LE, SS 1LE and ZL1 ILE to complete its 1LE track package lineup.
“Lauded since its introduction for its balance of driving fun, refinement and value, the restyled 2019 Camaro reaches even higher with more of the design, technology and choices that customers want,” Steve Majoros, a marketing director with Chevrolet said in a news release.
“It’s a performer with few competitors and a pillar of Chevrolet’s energized car lineup.”
The first-ever Camaro Turbo 1LE comes equipped with a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine with a six-speed manual transmission capable of making 275 horsepower with 195 pounds of torque. It has selectable drive modes of sport, track or competition mode that comes with performance information readouts, launch control and shift lights, among others.
Design changes from 2018 to 2019 model year include a new front-end style including noticeable changes to the grille and headlights. Chevy says in the release that these changes were made to optimize airflow and improve the Camaro’s performance.
“The 2019 Camaro’s updated designs are not only striking but also help to improve performance,” the automaker says. “For instance, the grille details and hood and fascia vents were designed for optimized air flow, either to cool components or help minimize drag or lift.
“Camaro designers follow the mantra that all elements must not only be beautiful but also enhance performance.”
Available safety features include a rear camera mirror with a wider point of view, rear-vision camera, a new digital high-definition camera, forward collision alert and an enhanced performance data recorder system. The automaker says it will come on its “most advanced infotainment systems” ever in the standard 7-inch or available 8-inch screen.
