Chevrolet introduced the 6th Generation 2017 Camaro 1LE at the Chicago Auto Show back in February. They introduced the car in a color called Krypton Green as a concept color. Reception of this very bold color was overwhelming. Enthusiasts are asking Chevrolet to make this color on the Camaro after seeing it grace the 1LE car.
This weekend at the Camaro 50th Anniversary festivities, Cheryl Pilcher, Camaro Product manager confirmed to Chris Frezza of CamaroShow.com that this color is a go! A limited production run this spring will be done for the 2017 Camaro. Asked if this color would be available for ZL1, the answer was “to be determined”. Yea!
The 1LE package is a $4,500 MSRP option on Camaro V-6 LT coupe models and $6,500 on the V-8 1SS coupe model. For LT coupes, the 1LE package features the Camaro SS’s FE3 suspension, while the 1SS benefits from the ZL1’s electronic limited-slip differential and FE4 suspension with Magnetic Ride dampers.
