Why would anyone want a 4 cylinder 2016 camaro
 
Why would anyone want a 4 cyl camaro?? Sounds a bit lame.

Why would anyone bawk at a 4cyl Camaro being added to the lineup if there's a demand? If it makes business sense and helps to keep the Camaro model in production, who cares? You can continue to buy your v8 and if someone wants to buy an entry level sporty Camaro at a cheaper price point, let 'em. Variation is the spice of life.

Because a 2 cylinder Camaro would just be silly. :D

Because GM has one of the best turbo 4s in the industry.

Bring back the Quad4!!!!

Not for me, but it may not be a bad thing. As Fen said, GM has one of the best turbo 4's in the industry.

Didn't they use the 2.5 liter (iron duke) in the Berlenetta Camaros in the 80's?

Look at that those turbo neons and calibers putting out over 300hp from the factory....give the V8 a run for it's money

Yep. It was pretty terrible but the LTG in the ATS and Malibu is down the corner and around the block from that engine.

O I know. I had an S-10 in high school that had a 2.5 in it. Over 2K miles on it and it still ran decent. Sounded like a diesel the whole time I owned it though.

I didn't even look at a .750 Camaro I sure don't see me looking at a .500 Camaro.

A cheaper price point might not be necessarily true. If GM decides to go 4-cylinder with turbo option, it could price itself above $30K. I do agree that variety is the spice of life (I also drive an AWD 4-cylinder turbo; EVO VIII).

On a road course, the advantage of a high HP 4-cylinder compact engine with a shift of the center-of-gravity towards the center, in addition to low curb-weight and a worked over tuned suspension would be hard to beat as long as the power:weight ratio is at least 1 or as close to 1 as possible.
