Gen V V8s will have Variable Valve Timing and Direct Injection. There's no reason to keep using high displacement engines when we have new technology that can get lower displacement engines to the same or better power outputs with better fuel economy.

5.5 pushing 440 really doesn't sound to impressive to me.

But you tend to give up TQ and they are a bit heavier/bulkier. They tend to be a little more high strung, making power up higher and revving higher. It's harder to get the low end grunt. It's a trade off situation. I would not be surprised if they went this route to come up with better fuel economy numbers because that's the direction they're being pushed in. I'd like to see the 5.5L screamer in the Z28 because it's supposed to be a race car. Give the big displacement big torque motor to the SS.

There's no replacement for displacement

Well, color me excited! Finally, DI in a V8. And, to all the naysayers, let's think about the birth of the LS block. First, 5.7 (LS1, LS6). Then 4.8, 5.3 (LM7, LZ9, LS4), 6.0 (LQ4, LQ9, L76), 6.2, 7.0, 6.2SC. This is the first of many. GM has many tricks up their sleeve. We just don't hear about it because the government owns too much of our "stock". Please be patient, naysayers. Let GM go IPO, where the American people can own the company again, and the lips will loose!

It's definitely good news. At least there's a possibility we'll keep the V8 in Gen 6, and one that's packing 440hp nonetheless. While the loss of TQ will probably sting, it's still a V8, and that's all I'm happy about.

Oh does that engine compartment look nice and clean!!
It looks like you just opened up a jewelery box, and the engine is the diamond.

Same here, significantly smaller and insignificant power increase? Cool, i guess...

440 HP? Im hoping it will be well north of that, at least above the output of the new 6.4L HEMI.

I dont think it would be much of a problem, even with the smaller displacement.

I think this is exciting. When I imagine a smaller, lighter Camaro paired with this really advanced proposed new engine, I'm thinking the 6th gen Camaro will be a solid mid 12 second car. And once you add forced induction to the mix, the car will be scary fast.

I'm just wondering if the new engine will have higher compression than the LS3's? Most likely.

While the next hemi willl be nice it's still too heavy of a car especially if they keep the iron block a few mods and the whatever little advantage it has will be negated.Plus price wise SRT will compete more with the Z28 which will spank the SRT if it goes into production plus the aftermarket for dodge sucks compared to Chevy.
