My 6th generation 2016 Camaro prediction

OK...I have been anal-lyzing and I predict that the base camaro v8 will be the 5.3 and the 6.2 will used specifically in the ZL1 after being reworked to produce about 600+hp in stock form. The 5.3 DFI will produce about 420hp in stock form. There will be an optional 3.6 twin turbo option producing 400hp.

Don't know about that TTV6 just yet.

Base engine will most likely be the 2.0T.

If the base is 2.0T it will cease to be a camaro.

Mustang will move to the same formula. Both cars are getting lighter and more agile. No problem using a turbocharged four cylinder producing as much power as a V6 with better fuel economy. These aren't the four bangers of yesteryear.

If you want a sneak peak at the 6th gen, just read how well received this car has been...



While the top engine in ATS is the LFX V6, the 2.0T is reportedly going to be the much sportier powertrain option.

My prediction is more of a finger-pointing....if you want to see how the next-gen Camaro might perform...take a look at the ATS. The future is bright!

I might be wrong, but I remember there being a 4 cyl Camaro back in the 3rd generation. Any one else remember this?

That is why they said in the movie "Mad Max" "The last of the big V 8's." Which is why I bought the Camaro knowing that the future would be smaller engine's that are more efficient and more power for the size. That is why I will never sell my car because it is the last of the big V 8's. To me it's not the name Camaro, but the motor.

Next generation camaro

If theres one wish i would want from the next generation camaro is the power to weight ratio. They need to get the weight down on these vehicles.

The good ol Iron Duke. It was also available in the S-series trucks as well as the A and J body cars.

Ford already has a turbo 4 cylinder making well over 300HP/300 TQ available and I'd expect that to go in their next base Mustang. That TQ is also available from a low rpm all the way to high rpms.

GM's 2.0 turbo is making 270HP, but I'd expect it to bump up to 300 as well for the Camaro if it used in the car. If that is the case, I'm not sure there will be a good reason for a V6 that makes more HP, but likely no more TQ than the turbo 4....and that pains me because I really really would love to see the V6 make another appearance with at least 330 to 340+ horsepower.

Either of these engines in a 3,400 car would be pretty dang fun. I'd expect the base Camaro to be in the 3,400 lb range since the base ATS weighs just under 3,400lbs from what I understand.

A 420+ HP V8 or turbo V6 SS would be sick.

The weight will be down for sure. No doubt about it.

Another thread similar to this just got started:

More news about the ATS that could provide speculation on the 6th gen Camaro.

http://ats-v.com/viewtopic.php?f=15&p=231#p231

As I stated...weight starting under 3,400 lbs.

Under 6 second 0 - 60 for the turbo 4, and 5.4 seconds for the V6. Very cool....I'm digging it. With some basic mods on either of these engines, you now have base engines that put performance closer to today's SS than the V6.

Just imagine what the SS could be capable of.

I'm pretty sure they have already approved this engine choice for the 6th gen.
