This car will probably get the LS3. It's supposed to be introduced in the 08 Vette in April.

LS3 Should be in the 450 power range. The Z06 might get a bump in power as well. But the camaro is I may have to trade up the trans am.

Its a nice car but the front looks like its a smiling japanese designed car rather than a muscular hotrod. The dodge challenger doesn't have that prob because it has straight across lines like any old school muscle car. Think the new lancer front end design struck muscular better than this camaro also. Scary thing is, the new evo will be a muscle car, from Japan, probably close in price to the v8 camEro.

Camaro interior is concept, nothing to get excited over.

The hardtop Camaro will go on sale in 2009.

Dang, I have been ‘asleep at the wheel’ (good country swing band by the way)…this will be a hardtop!! Man everyone needs to drive a hardtop once…all windows down…no B-pillar….just have to be there….Will have to look at this …

I have little confidence the car will end up as you see it. They just keep showing us CGI's and photoshop concepts. Lets start to see some finished sheet metal and dash setups...




Show us something real/production ready...

The LS3 was introduced as the Corvette's new base engine for the 2008 model year. It produces 430 hp (321 kW) at 6000 rpm and 424 ft·lbf of torque (575 N·m) at 4400 rpm and is SAE certified. The block is an updated version of the LS2 casting featuring a larger-bore of 4.06 inches creating a displacement of 6.2 liters (376 cubic inches), or .2 liters larger than the LS2. It also features higher flowing cylinder heads derived from the LS7, a more aggressive camshaft, a revised valve train with offset intake rocker arms, a high-flow intake manifold, and high-flow fuel injectors from the LS7 engine.
I find it doubtful that GM will put the LS7 in the SS, unless it is extremely expensive and produced in limited quantities like the C6 Z06 is. The LS7 is hand built by GM engineers at a much lower production rate than the other LSx engines are. A LS7 crate motor costs over $13,000 whereas a LS2 is about $6,500 or so. The cost of the engine alone would make a Camaro SS really, really expensive versus a LS3. It may be a yet-to-be-revealed derivative of the LS7 that is mass-produced rather than hand-built (please God no piston slap).

That said, there has to be something that differentiates the SS from Z28s, so it may indeed be the LS7 - especially since the blown LS9 may be GM's flagship V8 by 2009, in the Z07. It will be exciting to see regardless!

Good luck with GM if theyre expecting to sell v8 cameros. With gas prices going the way they are, theyre screwed.

This isnt the 80s... v8 of today actually offer decent gas mileage.

Hell look at the vette
Manual: 18 mpg / 28 mpg
Automatic: : 17 mpg / 27 mpg

Not bad IMO

V6s and rental fleets.

Regardless, I saw Transformers last weekend and LOVED the new Camaro. Yes Saleen basically made a kit Camaro but it looked great.

My only beef is that these cars are HUGE. The new Mustang is enormous. It looks great but it's the size of a boat.

Nothing new about that.

From the worthless, no credibility, anecdotal news file; the Ford dealer I went to (looking for a hybrid for the parents) said the Mustang was not selling very well lately, and they had a lot on the lot, but no Escape Hybrids to be seen.

GM should do fine with the Camaro....It is a Hardtop, mustang not, it will have a great V-8, Mustang so-so....It will ride and handle better, Side/head air bags...there is a lot of pent up demand for a rear wheel, V-8 hardtop or coupe.....Audi is doing the same thing with the 5...coupe V-8....coupes and V-8s will be OK as they are not bought for family transpo.....Hardtops are just that much better...

Yea because the V8s arent getting good gas mileage. Look at the vette now. many are reporting 28-30+ on the hwy. My neighbor at the lake gets over 31 on his hwy trips on his 06 vette.

Big Tex, the Mustang is a hardtop as well. The doors are frameless as are the Camaro's.

As for the size, the Eclipse, Stang and Camaro look about the same size to me; what's the beef here?

Yeah but they use pushrods! PUSHRODS!!

lol

I love it how the Z06 is the only car with 500+ horsepower to not have the gas guzzler tax. Gen IV small blocks are amazing.

A hardtop has no B-Pillar.....Coupe has B-pillar....so when they advertise the Camaro as a hardtop there will be no B-pillar...all four windows will roll down for the open hardtop look and feel...
