The Taming of the Turbo

Chevrolet Camaro 1LS
Starting MSRP: $25,905
Camaros are typically known for their V8 growl, but they have been using six cylinders as the base engine since the car’s debut in 1967. General Motors dropped a 90-horsepower weakling four-banger under the hood in the mid-1980s and it was a nightmare. This time around they added a turbo and upped the ante to 275 thundering horses . . . about 30 years and 185 extra horses sound like evolution done right. That forward progress will continue into 2019 as GM adds a 1LE track package to the entry-level Camaro. It includes wider tires, Brembo performance brakes, and a seriously upgraded suspension that includes larger sway bars, specially tuned shocks, stiffer bushings and more.
