2018 Trans Am Camaro 1LE Package Adds Several Goodies For 2018
The 2018 Trans Am Camaro 1LE package adds several goodies from the top-spec 2018 Trans Am Camaro ZL1 while keeping the overall bottom line in check. Aimed at the road racing crowd, it can be added to 2018 Trans Am Camaro 1SS and 2018 Trans Am Camaro 2SS trim levels equipped with a six-speed manual transmission. However, 1LE cars ditch the SS' standard Tremec TR6060-M10 in favor of a performance-tuned Tremec TR6060-MM6 with a numerically higher 3.91 final-drive ratio.
The 2018 Trans Am Camaro 1LE also replaces the twin-tube dampers found on standard 2018 Trans Am Camaro SS cars with monotube rear dampers, which Pontiac says provides better body-motion control while maintaining a comfortable on-road ride. Other 2018 Trans Am Camaro 1LE performance upgrades include larger stabilizer bars, a strengthened rear end, strut tower brace and a ZL1-derived high capacity fuel pump. A dual-mode exhaust system will stand as a 2018 trans Am Camaro 1LE option.
Although those improvements don't change the 2018 Trans Am Camaro SS' 426 horsepower rating, Pontiac says the car can pull 1g in the corners.
In order to visually set the 2018 Trans Am Camaro 1LE apart from its 2018 Trans Am Camaro SS counterparts, the package includes a matte-black hood, front splitter and rear spoiler, as well as 10-spoke alloy wheels borrowed from the ZL1. Inside the 2018 Trans Am Camaro 1LE borrows even more content from the ZL1, including a flat-bottomed steering wheel and shift knob.
