1LE details


The

1LE package is
offered

on 1SS and 2SS coupe models

with an exclusive

Tremec
TR6060
-
MM6

six
-
speed
manual transmission
. Paired with a numerically higher 3.91
final
-
drive ratio, the close
-
ratio g
earing of the transmission is tuned for road
-
racing
performance. As with the ZL1, the 1LE transmission features a standard air
-
to
-
liquid
cooling system for track use.


The 1LE also features exclusive, monotube rear dampers instead of the twin
-
tube
dampe
rs on SS models. The new hardware allowed engineers to tune the 1LE
suspension to focus on optimal body
-
motion control while preserving much of the ride
quality and wheel
-
motion control of the Camaro SS.


Other changes to optimize the 1LE for track
-
day us
e include:




Larger, 27
-
mm solid front stabilizer bar, and 28
-
mm solid rear stabilizer bar for
improved body control



Higher
-
capacity rear
-
axle half shafts to cope with increased levels of traction



Strut tower brace for improved steering feel and response



ZL1
-
based 20 x 10
-
inch front and 20 x 1
0
-
inch aluminum wheels



285/35ZR20 Goodyear Eagle Supercar G:2 tires front and rear (identical to the
front tires for ZL1)



ZL1 wheel bearings, toe links and rear shock mounts for improved on
-
track
performance



ZL1 high
-
capacity fuel pump and additional fuel pickups for improved fuel
delivery during high
-
load cornering.



Visually, the 1LE packag
e is distinguished by its matte
black hood, front splitter and rear
spoiler


as well as the 10
-
spoke ZL1
-
based wheels, which
are finished in black. The
functional front splitter and rear spoiler contribute to the car’s on
-
track performance by
helping to reduce aerodynamic lift at high speeds.


Inside, the 1LE package incorporates the ZL1’s flat
-
bottom steering wheel, trimmed in

sueded
-
microfibre

and designed for easier heel
-
and
-
toe driving on the racetrack. The
quick
-
acting, short
-
throw shifter from th
e ZL1 is also trimmed in sueded
-
microfibre
.


In anticipation of consumers entering the 1LE in amateur
-
racing events,
Chevrolet

is
pursuing SCCA approval of the 1LE package for Touring Class competition.


The Camaro 1LE package was introduced in 1988, inspired by Camaro’s involvement in
Pro
-
Am road racing.


MyL
ink
details



Chevrolet’s
colour

touch radio with MyLink infotainment is available on 2013 Camaro
LS,
SS and ZL1
models. The
colour

touch radio, with a
seven
-
inch touch screen, also can be
paired with an available in
-
dash GPS navigation system


a first fo
r the Camaro.


The
colour

touch radio with MyLink gives customers a higher level of in
-
vehicle wireless
connectivity and customized infotainment options, while building on the safety and
security of OnStar. It seamlessly integrates online services such as

Stitcher
SmartRadio
®

using hands
-
free voice and touch
-
screen controls via Bluetooth
-
enabled
phones.


MyLink adds stereo audio streaming and wireless control of smartphones, building on
the voice
-
activated
Bluetooth hands
-
free calling capability already offered in most Chevy
vehicles. The high
-
resolution, full
-
colour

touch screen display makes media selection
easy to navigate. MyLink also retains all the capabilities of today’s entertainment
functions, inclu
ding AM/FM
/
XM tuners, auxiliary and USB inputs.

The Camaro convertible brings top

-
stiff body structure to quell the cowl and steering
wheel shake common in convertibles. They include:




A tower

Camaro powertrain
s


Standard in LS and LT models is the LFX
-
code 3.6L V
-
6, rated at 323 horsepower (241
k
W) and enabling
a highway fuel consumption rating of 6.6L/100km

(2LS model).

Many
lightweight engine features contribute to that, including an integrated cylinder
head/exhaust manifold design that saves about 13 pounds per engine, when compared
with a conv
entional, non
-
integrated design.


Two 6.2L V
-
8 engines are offered in the Camaro SS, including the L99 on automatic
-
equipped vehicles and the LS3 on manual
-
equipped models.
Horsepower for the L99 is
400 (298 kW) at 5,900 rpm and torque is 410 lb.
-
ft. (556

Nm) at 4,300 rpm. The LS3
develops 426 horsepower (318 kW) and 420 lb.
-
ft. (569 Nm). Output on the L99 is lower
than the LS3 because of a slightly lower compression ratio (10.4:1 vs. 10.7:1) and
design features

of the Active Fuel Management s
ystem.


All
Camaro models can be equipped with either a six
-
speed manual or six
-
speed
automatic transmission

with TapShift
. Equipment and features include:




The Aisin AY6 six
-
speed manual is standard with the 3.6L engine, and a Hydra
-
Matic 6L50 s
ix
-
speed automatic is
optional



A Tremec TR 6060 six
-
speed manual is standard on the SS, and the Hydra
-
Matic
6L80 s
ix
-
speed automatic is optional



The SS model’s
Tremec TR
6060 six
-
speed manual is designed to handle the
high torque characteristics of the LS3 engine

and is matched
with a 3.45:1 final
drive ratio



A close
-
ratio version of the Tremec TR6060 is used with the 1LE package and is
matched with a 3.91 final drive ratio



Hill start assist is standard on all manual transmissions.


A dual
-
mode exhaust system is available on Cam
aro SS models with the six
-
speed
manual transmission. Similar to the systems found on the ZL1 and Corvette models, this
vacuum
-
actuated system provides a quieter driving experience at low engine speeds
and a more aggressive sound at
when aggressive acceler
ation is called for.




C
amaro c
hassis and suspension


Camaro features fully independent front and rear suspensions, with
the rear suspension
featuring a

4.5
-
link system that includes a unique, L
-
shaped upper control arm that
attaches to the knuckle at one

end and incorporates a ride bushing in the rear.
A sub
-
frame at the rear is double
-
isolated to minimize vehicle body motions and dampen road
imperfections. Coil
-
over shock absorbers are used in the rear with a decoupled, hollow
stabilizer bar.

The front s
uspension has a dual
-
ball strut system, with a direct
-
acting
stabilizer bar.


Four
suspension packages are offered: FE2 sport on
LS and LT

models; FE3

on SS
Convertible models
,
FE4 performance
on SS Coupe models

and the FE6 with the 1LE
Performance Packag
e.


Four
-
wheel disc brakes

are standard

on all models


including Brembo four
-
piston
callipers

on SS


with hydraulic brake assist
.

StabiliTrak electronic stability control
is
standard
on all models
.

Competitive/sport mode on SS models enhances on
-
track
p
erformance

and
Performance Launch Control on SS models with the manual
transmission optimizes hard
-
acceleration launches for quicker, more consistent
performance
.


New for 2013,
an

electric power steering system developed for the ZL1
is

standard on all
SS
.

T
his

variable ratio, variable effort system
provides light efforts for easy
manoeuvrability

at parking
-
lot speeds as well as increased resistance at higher speeds
,
providing
more feedback

and a more direct steering feel.


Camaro s
afety and crash
-
avoidance

features


The
Camaro

is designed to help
drivers
avoi
d crashes, while protecting
occupants in the
event a crash
occurs
.

A
strong body structure is designed to absorb crash energy and
provide a protective “safety cage” around occupants.

In fact, the 2012 C
amaro was the
first passenger car to receive NHTSA’s revised quadruple 5
-
star safety rating.


Additional features include:




S
ix standard air bags

(on coupe model)

include

side curtain air bags, which
provide head protection for outboard passengers in the
event of
a side
-
impact or
rollover crash
. Head protection comes from high mounted seat airbags on the
convertible model



Rear Vision Package includes a rearview camera system to complement the rear
park assist feature (standard on 2LT and 2SS; available on
1LT and 1SS)



StabiliTrak electronic stability control system helps reduce the risk of rollover
crashes by keeping the vehicle in the driver’s intended path by applying throttle,
b
raking or a combination of both

our
-
wheel
disc brake system featuri
ng smooth, quiet operation, longer
pad life and mor
e resistance to brake pulsation



Pretensioners minimize forward movement

during a collision
, and are standard
on the front safety belts. Load
-
limiting retract
ors cinch the belt more tightly



Standard t
ire pr
essure monitoring system



Standard remote keyless entry (RKE) system provides a second function for the
red panic button. Drivers can
use
it

to locate their cars without sounding the
panic alarm.


OnStar details


Six months of OnStar Directions and Connecti
ons service is standard on all Camaro
models. OnStar is the global leading provider of connected safety, security and mobility
solutions and advanced information technology.


OnStar’s RemoteLink Mobile App allows smartphone users to control vehicle functi
ons,
access vehicle information and send directions directly to the vehicle. A new, opt
