The 2019 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE To Receive Automatic Transmission Option

Chevrolet’s fastest Camaro ever, the formidable ZL1 1LE, will be available with an automatic transmission beginning late February.

Chevrolet claims the ZL1 1LE with the 10-speed automatic transmission is quicker on the track than the ZL1 1LE equipped with the six-speed manual. With the 10-speed, Chevrolet had to make several changes to the ZL1 1LE including adjustments to the electronic limited slip differential and traction management system. The front and rear Multimatic DSSV (Dynamic Suspension Spool Valve) dampers have also been tweaked to accept the quicker shifts in weight transfer.

“This transmission is optimized for speed,” said Camaro Chief Engineer Mark Dickens. “With unique Track Mode calibrations and 10 gears, you are always in the perfect gear when rolling on or off the throttle. You may not be a professional race car driver, but now you can shift like one.”

“Adding an automatic transmission is another example of the Camaro portfolio delivering what customers want. This ultimate 1LE is another appealing option that is true to its racing heritage,” said Steve Majoros, director of Chevrolet passenger car and crossover marketing.

The ZL1 1LE performance package has an MSRP of $7,500. The available 10-speed automatic transmission has an MSRP of $1,595.
