Alternatively, they could start up a program where they "refurbish" older cars for a reasonable price.

Since older cars are exempt from mandates, they could essentially pry off the VIN number from your trade-in and stick it onto a high-tech chassis with a big honkin' new V8, and make all the buyers happy.

If the nannies catch on and make sure that a certain percentage of the car is re-used, they could invent a way to melt down your old car and reform it into the new one.

I'd do it in a heartbeat.

Still hoping for that 340HP 290TQ V6.

GM...give it to us in a 3,300 - 3,400 car. Would be SWEET!!

Evidence of a new line of V6 engines in the works?? I think this could be pretty cool.

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...75#post6387875

They talk about the "next gen" V6. I'm wondering if the 4.3 is considered part of this next gen of V6 engines? I'm guessing more use of DI, cam phasing, and cylinder deactivation across the line. I can see is now....."350 HP and 35 MPG highway" lol maybe not but I'd take it.

I never thought that the V6 would be endangered. I was talking to my ex about the rumors around the 6th gen today (not that he cares but I love to torture, he is an ex after all) and mentioned that I thought they would probably do a turbo 4 with about 270-ish HP so it would not compete with the V6 and a new V6 pushing 340+.

If they put a 4 cylinder in the Camaro, they might as well make it a front wheel drive!

Besides, if GM Camaro team is REALLY listening, as they have said they are, and the Camaro disciples have said they are, and Scott (Fbodfather) says they are, then this is a great outlet to show them what we want.
Well if we are showing them what we want, it ain't a 4 banger Camaro. Keep the V6, they get better every year. The 4 banger Impala and Malibu don't impress me.

We could see both, and I wouldn't expect any Malibu or Impala to suit a Camaro driver.

Most people that buy a 6 cylinder Camaro care about MPG and that the car offers 300+HP.(Looks play a major part)
So with a 4 cylinder car with turbo the MPG would be pretty high and performance would be similar or better than what the V6 offers at the moment.
One thing I would hate would be a 7 or 8 speed transmission since it would shift too much.
I dont want nothing to do with a 4 banger , Keep the V6 put that twin turbo caddy engine in her and all will be great

Here is the problem, if they put the 4 in then most likely it becomes the entry level car. This would be disapointing in that the 6 is a nice motor and with less weight and a few more ponies it would be great for those who want performance on a budget and still feel they have a motor that has a non-entry level feel to it. If the 4 banger was cheaper then todays ls then ok but I do not believe this will happen.

This was posted in another thread, and I thought it was worth copying over to this thread.

But then have a larger one, say 3.8L, that is up at about 350 hp and 290 ft-lbs (like you mentioned) for full size cars, large crossovers, and the Camaro. Off the large one, you can make your turbo6 with similar output as the LT1 V8, for applications where it doesn't make sense to actually use the V6. There would be no point in doing a turbo version of the smaller one as it would likely barely best the big V6 in output. ...
I have to say I fully agree with this.

The 6th gen will be based on the same car as the ATS and its turbo 4 banger puts out 272 hp and 260 tq, no need for a smaller v-6.

What??? Please read again.

The smaller V6 could be for small to midsize passenger cars, and the larger V6 for large sedans, cross-overs, SUVs, and the Camaro.
