Is a Diesel, Hybrid or All-Wheel-Drive Chevy Camaro in the Works?

Heating up a frigid Midwestern winter, Chevrolet unveiled its spicy new 1LE Camaro trim at the Chicago Auto Show last week. This driver-focused package promises to further enhance the carís track-day capability.

In an effort to broaden the appeal of this options group, GM is making it available on V6-powered models for the first time ever. In years past, it has been exclusive to eight-cylinder cars.

To learn a little more about the new 1LE package and what else is going on with the 2016 Camaro, we chatted with Al Oppenheiser, chief engineer of this iconic performance machine.

By making this option available on V6 Camaros, the company is putting itself in a good position to sell even more. 'We donít have a restriction on sales,' explained Oppenheiser. 'But just from the interest we had in the fifth-gen, Iíd say each one will probably generate about 1,500 to 2,000 units a year,' solid volume for a relatively niche vehicle.
