Made for Speed: 2019 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE Offers New 10-Speed Transmission


The fastest-ever Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE is about to become a whole lot more fun with an all-new available 10-speed automatic transmission starting in late February. During development, the new automatic transmission was pushed to its limits, in turn, giving it a full half-second advantage over its 6-speed standard transmission counterpart. On even longer tracks, drivers can excitedly expect to shave several more seconds off their lap time with the newly introduced 10-speed automatic transmission. As Camaro Chief Engineer Mark Dickens explains, “This transmission is optimized for speed. 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.”

On top of the additional speed, this new 10-speed automatic transmission gives drivers more performance options while cruising in their Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE as the paddle shifters provide a more dynamic and engaging driving experience. In order to meet the requirements of the epic 1LE performance package, the new transmission underwent unique calibrations and acquired new dampers to better handle quicker shifts in transferring weight. New hardware such as an additional cooling duct and a new transmission pan were also essential when developing the new transmission for the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE. Director of Chevrolet Passenger Car and Crossover Marketing Steve Majoros said, “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.” The all-new 2019 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE Track Performance Package retails for $7,500 and the soon-to-be-available 10-speed automatic transmission will retail for just $1,595.
