We love the old-school Challenger’s attitude and adore the Mustang as an everyday package, but as a driver’s car, the Camaro is the king.

With respect to the Dodge Challenger and Ford Mustang, the Chevrolet Camaro boasts the best driving dynamics in the class. But it can go even further than the standard model. For 2019, Chevrolet now offers its 1LE with every version of its popular muscle car.

We just wrapped up the national launch of the new Camaro Turbo 1LE, but by happy coincidence, we arrived home to a Red Hot (seriously, that’s the color’s name) 2018 Camaro SS 1LE and thought it’d be a good time to explain just why this is the muscle car to buy if you’re looking for an all-American track tool with 1960s heritage.
