Gen6 Z/28

Do you think it'll happen? By that time, I be able to get one according to GF. Or maybe last year of the Gen5.

I don't think we will see a Z/28 in the 6th gen.

I would think like the path of the C7. You'll get an SS, then maybe the ZL1 and then maybe the Z28 down the road. They wont just come out guns a blazing with all their new toys. They have to trickle them out to keep us drooling over what's next.

With the limited run of the 5th Gen Z/28 I'll bet you do in fact see a 2016 Z/28. It just won't be over the top like this generations Z/28, which is probably a good thing.

I think the SS nomenclature is done and allocated for the SS sedan. So, I honestly wonder if we see a Camaro v6 or "RS" then maybe the SS becomes a Z28 again.

Z/28 and ZL1 will probably be one car in Gen6.

Way to far off to tell. I'd bet money that it won't be released in the first two model years of the 6th-gen at least.

Will there be a track-dedicated 6th-gen Camaro? I think it's reasonable to assume yes. This Camaro Team is very attuned to what Camaro can and cannot do. What it can do: is beat the crap out of other cars in its price range on a road course. But what will it be called? What engine will it have? How will it perform?

We'll have to wait and see.

slash or no slash but the Z28 will either be the 1LE (a handling package on the SS) or the ZL1

If they can bring themselves to make the new Z28 with a supercharger it will replace the ZL1 and the ZL1 goes away

I think the ZL1 was a "hold that thought" with the bankruptcy and then subsequently someone saying "WTF were we thinking by going to name a supercharged car Z/28?" and then correcting the almost mistake.

It appears from the spy shots and Z28 molded script in some of the ZL1-specific parts means to me that if it weren't for the bankruptcy pause, the current ZL1 would be the Z/28. But I think they got the naming thing correct now.

So in my speculation, the ZL1 probably will go away. They made them pretty much flow-through after 2012 and while it was a hot commodity when new, now they're stalling in sales. They already curtailed production over the last couple of months and I don't know of anyone selling them at MSRP anymore.

I agree with this 100%. It won't be over the top and we're more likely to see a Z28 in the 6th Gen than a Z/28... IMO

Yep it'll be there. Count on it! Will it beat out a 2014? Not by any means. It'll be watered down for more consumers. Likely in the price of $55-65k. I don't see a 2nd ZL-1 coming out.

Gen6 Z/28 no doubt. It will be merged with the ZL1, like the C7 Vette Z06 has merged with the ZR1. MSRP. Who knows. The LT4 is the only top of the food chain propulsion plant. Maybe they will offer different supercharger variants. But the internal motor itself will remain unchanged. Once it's certified, it's written in stone.

I believe they will offer both the ZL1 & Z/28. I also believe that Ford will offer both a GT350 & Boss.

One thing you can be assured of ... and don't be disappointed ... it will not be released in the first model year. Current-gen ZL1 was not...C7 Z06 was not...it's just not good tactics to put all your cards on the table in the first round of betting...

I agree but I think the Z/28 will lose the slash, stay naturally aspirated (302cu LT5?) and be placed just above the entry level V8. I think it will take the ZL1s place as the somewhat affordable supercar and outperform the current ZL1 due in large part to the improved platform. I think the 1LE returns to continue as a great track package and I see the ZL1 sitting this one out. I think anything over and above a sixth gen Z28 requires a successful first few years of the sixth gen, much how the fifth gen evolved. If that car comes to fruition I see them using a new name to keep things fresh.

They won't mess with their success.

ZR1 is gone...so should be the ZL1 going forward. It's a shrinking market due to technology advances, Corporate downsizing and MSRP's

This is whats expected: if an improved LS7 is coming, then def. a 6th gen Z/28 will be out.

Powertrain


The 2015 Camaro is expected to offer the following engine choices:
  • 2.0 liter turbocharged I4 LTG
  • 3.6 liter naturally aspirated V6 LFX
  • New 3.6 liter twin turbo V6 LF3
  • (SS) New 6.2 liter naturally aspirated V8 Small Block LT1
  • (Z/28?) New 7.0 liter naturally aspirated V8 Small Block (LS7 successor)
  • (ZL-1?) New supercharged V8 Small Block

No LT 7.0 liter. They tried it for the Z06 and it would have made less power than the LS7 due to emissions. Hence the supercharged 6.2 LT4 under its hood.

Then Id imagine a smaller supercharged 6.2L would be the engine used on a Z/28 and eliminate the ZL-1 from the camaro line-up?

The LT4 in the Z06 uses a 1.7 liter blower. That's even smaller than the LSA's 1.9 liter blower and far smaller than the LS9's 2.3 liter.

If an LT4 derivative ends up in a Camaro, they might change the pulleys to drop the boost or leave it producing the same power.

I don't see Team Camaro doing a blown Z/28. That's why I think the ZL1 will stay.
