2019 Chevrolet Camaro Line Revs Up Choices and Track Fever

2019 Chevrolet Camaro Line Revs Up Choices and Track Fever

By Philly Murtha, April 09, 2018

Chevrolet has given its 2019 Camaro lineup a boost of exterior raciness, tweaks in performance options, more advanced technology, plus a new entry-level variant with track package. Identified by brasher grilles with attention to airflow vents and narrow front lighting systems, the 2019 Chevrolet Camaro midsize sporty car variants will begin reaching showrooms this fall. Pricing has not been revealed, but the newest entry-1LE variant may carry a lower starting sticker, auto sites say.

On the outside, the sixth-generation, 2019 Camaro range of 1LE variants receive flashier grilles, updated front and rear fascias and reshaped and black hoods with minor changes in lighting systems and additions of diffusers and dual exhausts and new larger wheel designs to differentiate LS/LT, RS and SS variants. The SS V-8 gets a new all-black grille and is available with 10L80 10-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission with launch control and line lock that replaces an 8-speed automatic. 

Major news for 2019 is the addition of the 1LE Camaro variant with performance track package that coordinates with a turbocharged 1 LE 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder engine that produces 275 horsepower and 295 lb.-ft. of torque, partnered with a 6-speed manual. It’s built with a suspension adapted from the V-6 1LE and joins Camaro’s current 1LE range of V-6, SS and ZL1 variants with track packages. 

These available Camaro track-ready variants feature chassis with firmer suspension, larger sway bars, tuned dampers plus stiffer rear cradle bushings and cross-axis ball joints to enhance lateral stiffness. In addition, wide summer tires, a Brembo brake package and drive mode selector with Sport and Track mode choices are featured as are suede flat-bottom steering wheel and shift knob. For sports driving enthusiasts, Recaro race seats are optional. 

Chevrolet has also made more advanced technology standard in the 2019 Camaro lineup, including Chevrolet’s Infotainment System 3 with a 7-in. color touchscreen that can be upgraded to an 8-in. screen with available navigation. A rear vision camera system is standard and latest safety systems, including forward collision warning and rear camera mirror are available.
