    RSS Source: 2016 Camaro Gets 440 HP V8 And A 270 HP Turbo Four!

    Well, the catís out of the bag with the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro . At least from the pics weíve seen so far, the looks are surprisingly subtle, but where does it stand in terms of performance? According to a reliable inside source, the new Camaro gets a new and more powerful V8, a revised V6 and for the first time ever, a turbocharged four-cylinder.

    Chevy is behind the curve if you compare this 4 cylinder to the Mustang's. Unless the thing gets outrageous gas mileage I doubt there will be much demand for it. The V-6 is close to the 10 lb. per horsepower and it gets 28 mpg highway. I would expect the 4 banger to get at least 35 to be appealing to the market who's looking for a 13 lb or so per horsepower car. That's just a little better than a Mazdaspeed.

    What's next, a base Corvette with a four-cylinder?

    How about a quad cam V6 at 350 HP a midship Corvette Manta Ray at half the weight of a full size Stingray.

    Well, they were well on their way with that "Baby Vette" concept in the form of the Solstice and Sky. I wish they would have evovled that platform and stuck a nice V6 in them.
