The heart of the current 580 HP ZL1 Camaro is its supercharged, small-block V8. With the upcoming C7 Corvette, there will be a new generation of engines and one that is apparently destined for Camaro use was leaked in a Corvette Forum.
The engine, codenamed, LT4, is supercharged version of the fifth-generation Chevy small-block V8. GM could choose to keep the ZL1 moniker for this car or it could be the rumoured upcoming Z28. It is worth remembering that LT is an important engine code in GM history. This was the must have Chevrolet engine in the 90s, and is one of the few reasons anyone keeps a mid 90s Caprice or Roadmaster on the road today.
Described as an “upgrade of Camaro ZL1 with more hp," we are very excited to see what the future of factory-supercharged Camaros holds.
