The Aussie model will be a single 6.2-litre LT1 V8-engined version that, in United States trim, produces 332kW and 617Nm. Like its siblings, the Turbo 1LE comes exclusively with a six-speed manual transmission and a tailored chassis package borrowed from the V6 1LE to offer track-capable performance, it includes: larger diameter front and rear stabilizer bars, specifically tuned suspension dampers, stiffer rear cradle bushings, and cross-axis ball joints in the rear toe links that enhance lateral stiffness. There's also a Driver Mode Selector with Sport and new Track Modes, as well as Competition Mode which provides an assortment of performance-oriented readouts and shift lights. It offers a wider, less obstructed field of view using a camera display that eliminates potential obstructions such as rear body pillars or seat headrests.

Chevrolet has not made any changes to the powertrain with the 6.2-litre naturally aspirated V8 that makes 340kW and 615Nm still slated to power the Aussie version of the Camaro. The six-speed manual will also be available, but detailed specs are yet to be disclosed. The 2SS pack also adds a rear-camera mirror.
