I wouldn't mind a lower displacement with forced induction. But it has to have 8 cylinders.

Your cobalt is fast, at the expense of good looks and being a nice sized car. The camaro will never be as small as the civics and cobalts of today. You are preaching to the wrong group if you think we want a really fast go kart, instead of a big aggressive looking car.

Obviously any car on a diet will be faster, I just dont think a turbo 2.0L will be all that quick, I also dont think they are trying to make it fast. Just a more efficient base model that wont be faster than todays V6 camaro.

I would be more concerned with it if I was younger, but now that Ive had my first SS, Im sure I wont own anything with less than 8cylinders in the future, unless its a GTR.

I think a lot of people are missing one thing: There will still be a V8. If you don't want the 2.0T, then buy the V8.

Too many people are focused on the cylinder count and ignore the fact that it's a very versatile and adaptive engine that has already proven itself time and time again. Plus a world-class platform that will be lighter than Zeta.

Meh................ I don't really care. Like Fen said, you can always get the V8.

I think it's funny though. KIA and Hyundai will be proud though.

If it doesn't come at all with a v8 possibly a front wheel drive, get the sawzall, welder, and one will go in. Plenty of older v8 maros out there. I am seriously thinking of making an HHR small block project when mine gets more miles. It will be a rear wheel drive.

Perhaps look at it this way.

Offer a base model with a turbo 2.0 for those people that want a Camaro,but are on a budget and want good gas milage. It would also help with the corporate CAFE requirements.

Offer a up-level Camaro with a V6 either NA or FI for a mid-level performance option.

Offer a ZL1 class Camaro using the new DI LT4, either NA or FI.

With these variations, selling Turbo 2's, and V6's will help bring the CAFE milage up towards where it needs to be and allows GM to contiue to produce smaller volumes of cars with the real HP of a DI LT4.

For those that want a Camaro for apperance reasons, they have the Turbo 2 at a low price point,and for those of us that want a Camaro for performance, they can still offer the LT4 V8.

Always wanted a V8 - got it. Always wanted a supercharger - got it.
Always wanted a 68 Camaro = bought a 2011 - got it (well close enough for me). Would not by a 4 - or 6, that's just me. I liked my 350Z with the high rev engine driving through tunnels, love the V8 early morning start.
I'm sure if they put a smart car engine in a Camaro someone would like it.

If they make a V8 (as it states they will) then it's good since it will please many of you folks. If they do make a 4 cylinder and 6 cylinder, then it's probably even better since they will sell a lot more cars and you can probably expect to get a 7 or 8 generation Camaro.

What I am a little skeptical about is the following. I read that for future generations, car makers will start making smaller cars. While we can see why smaller cars might be the future, I really can't imagine a Camaro being smaller since that would take away its mean, manly, muscle, imposing look and it might end up having a weaker look.

The 6th gen V8 will no doubt be smaller than the current 6.2L. I'm betting it'll be 5.5L or what not. Though I'm curious. If they produce a Z-28, which gets the LT1? The Z? Or the SS? I doubt both will have 450hp.

Life is short, drive it like you stole it!

Remember back in the early 70's we bragged about 350 hp V8's, now we bash the 350 hp V6 . Today we brag about our 450 hp V8's, tomorrow (future) we'll bash the 450 hp V6! I can't wait for the future, these are great times to be a motorhead!!!! Bring on whatever makes me go fast.

My first car was one of those.....I actually got it up over 70 once, about needed to change my pants afterwards though.
No, it's not a real Z/28.....
