That's what modding is for. I'm all for people swapping out their V8s and whatnot and putting in the 2.0 L 4 banger. I just don't think it should come from the factory. You can always upgrade or even downgrade these cars as the mood strikes you. If you like it in your Chevelle, man do your thing. More power to ya.

I think that they are also considering europe as a market for the camaro and in Europe there is an annual tax mainly based on the cid(cmc) that beeing said it has to be 4 banger and tiny 2 liter. Also in Europe the gas price is a fair big amount double than the price in US so it has to be a high mpg car. In some countrys in Europe the annual tax is approx 2500$ or probably more for the 376 CID(6162CMC)!

P.S. I heard that they are trying to introduce somwhat of a tax like this in USA....maybe GM knows something about it....

320 to 340 from a 2.0T would take a big leap in the engine cost and internals. I think 300 is pretty close to the top in the near term.

But for those so dead set against a 4 cylinder............. 2014 Audi S3, 298 HP 2.0T with a nice 0 - 60 of 4.6 seconds. Pretty much running with an SS at that point. Granted a transverse FWD architecture with AWD but 3150 pounds and runs like stink.

So that would bring us back to simply the feel and sound rather than the performance of the V8 being the question at hand.

The Audi RS 3 Sportback. Has a turbo 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine mated to a seven-speed S Tronic dual-clutch transmission packing 340 horsepower and 331 pound-feet of torque. It's good for a 0-60 mph run of just 4.6 seconds too. It also costs around $68,000. The S3 you mentioned (the seven speed dual clutch S Tronic model runs 0-60 around 4.9 -- very fast but also a premium hatchback running around 40 grand and competing with Mercedes.

Are you saying you want the Camaro to become a premium Hatchback? That sure ain't gonna be the entry level model. No way they could make and market a premium turbo 4 AND a V8. We might as well start comparing entry level V6 Camaros to Porsche GT3s.

This.

If there is a demand, let them do it. If it allows them to keep making V8z, then DEMAND a 4 cyl. You don't have to buy it.

The top selling cars are 4 cyl. Why? Transportation.

So if the put a 4 cyl in. Who cares. The camaro belonds to GM. Not fans.they are in the business of selling cars. If it doesn't sell, they'll get rid of it.

320 - 340 HP is probably pushing it just a tad, but 320+ TQ is not.

Just look at the Saturn Sky Redline and the Cobalt Turbo SS. There was a factory tune you could purchase which put those things at nearly 300 HP and 320 TQ. Ford has turbo 4s in Europe pushing numbers like that, and the big rumor for a long while now is that the next Mustang will see a 300+ HP turbo.

So I see no problem getting to almost those power numbers you mentioned.

But the weight will almost surely be 3,300+ lbs if not closer to 3,400 for a 4 cylinder Camaro, and it won't have that ultra fancy 7 speed dual clutch transmission, so you won't be looking at sub 5 second 0 - 60 numbers, but you can bet it would be well under 6 seconds.

I'm not saying I'd buy one or not...just don't know, but saying it wouldn't be enjoyable to drive is just wrong. If it handled decently, it would be a hoot to drive I'm sure.

The camaro is already available in Europe. All camaros that I saw while living in Germany were the top trim v8 models. In addition, while gas is taxed at a significantly higher rate to subsidize alternative energy, I did not need to drive nearly as much there as in the US. I actually paid much less for fuel there than here. I guess what I am getting at is the camaro is probably just as much of a niche market in Europe.

Agreed. If they turn it into a European 4 cylinder high revving gas sipping hybrid thingie, I might as well drive a Beemer, or a Honda or something.

Actually, they really don't. The ATS is a dog given the peak HP rating GM's turbo 4 has. When you put it up against the BMW 3 series with a turbo 4, the BMW destroys the ATS. Too bad, because the rest of the car (ATS) is outstanding.

They have some work to do on that engine.

Mercedes makes an A 45AMG that's faster to 100 than their CLS 63.. the A 45 is a hatchback version of the CLA we are getting here..

The V6 owners are the ones wanting a 4 banger. Don't let it effect you.

I should have said not all V6 owners, lol. Nothing wrong with a V6, they are quick! Actually surprised the hell out of me when a friend of mine took me for a spin.

With the rumors about the new Mustang getting a turbo 4 that actually outperforms and is more expensive than a 6 cyl, one would imagine GM at least looking into it.

The only numbers that most performance minded people concern them selves with are the performance numbers, not the number of cylinders. If you`re more concerned about the sound that comes out of the exhaust that`s fine, me myself I want to see impressive G ratings, 0-60 and 1/4 mile times and if it can deliver decent to good gas mileage then all the better. I don`t give a damn if comes from 2,4,6 or 8 cylinder.

I just love a v8 period...but not withstanding the 1000 + hp turboed 4 bangers out there. If the 4's can do that in the camaro then I am in.

This thread just keeps on and keeps on lol.

It should be no shock to anyone here that a turbo 4 could run with or outrun a V6. Performance oriented turbo 4 engines these days are making 280 - 320 HP and that same amount in torque and also makes that torque at low rpms.

Compare that to a V6 which makes plenty of HP 323HP, but just 278 TQ and you can easily see how the turbo 4 could be quicker.

Throw a tune on the turbo 4 and suddenly your looking at TQ numbers closer to 400.

Yes right now the rumor mill seems to think the Mustang base car will be the V6, with the T4 being an optional engine which likely will have more torque, and better highway gas mileage.

I'd guess that GM is doing the same.

I agree, still can't figure why no one will compare turbo V6 to turbo 4 on this thread. Any performance (HP and TQ) you get from FI of a 4 banger, you can get with FI V6 or FI V8.
