Chevrolet Camaro News
One of these things is not like the others. And we don't mean that one is a Chevy while the rest are all from Ford. No, what we're looking at here are a bunch of performance cars, with one lone economy car thrown in for good measure.
On this week's Autoblog Podcast, Editor-in-Chief Greg Migliore is joined by Associate Editors Reese Counts and Joel Stocksdale. We discuss the redesigned 2019 Chevy Camaro and the new turbocharged four-cylinder 1LE. We talk about the manual Mustang GT in the office and the all-new 2019 Ford Focus. Plus we'll spend a reader's money and talk about what the new Jetta is like.

Unlike most midcycle refreshes, the exterior has been given a pretty drastic overhaul.
In addition to a model-wide refresh, Chevy is introducing yet another 1LE variant of the Camaro. Chevy's already amplified the ultimate ZL1 Camaro, so now it's addressing the least powerful Camaro equipped with the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder. And on paper, it gets nearly identical equipment to the V6 1LE.
The Z-28 Camaro in 1984 came with a 5.0-liter V8 making a respectable 190 horsepower. Buyers who went with the base four-cylinder engine, however, got just 92 Iron Duke horses. Few did. Here's a very rare Iron Duke Camaro in a Central Valley self-service wrecking yard.
