New for 2008 on the corvette
All-new LS3 6.2L V-8 engine for Coupe and Convertible:
376 cubic inches of displacement 430 hp (321 kW)*
424 lb.-ft. of torque (575 Nm)*
436 hp / 428 lb.-ft. (325 kW / 580 Nm)* with new, optional dual-mode exhaust system
High-flow cylinder heads
High-flow intake manifold
Larger-bore block with structural enhancements
Improved manual transmission shift effort
Quicker shift times on paddle-shift six-speed automatic
2.73 performance axle ratio available with six-speed paddle shift; included with Z51 package
So the question is will the new camaro have the same spec's? And will it be offered as the standard V8 model (like a z28) or a high performance verison (SS)?
Well from what I have heard so far is that the New Camaro will have 2 V6s and 3 V8s to choose from. My guess is it will more likely be 1 v6 and 2 v8s. A 3.9L v6 and the new 6.2L LS3 and then something unknown at this time for the SS, possibly something with lower cubes and a supercharger. Thats my guess. And as far a fuel economy goes I think the v6 will get the same highway mileage as the Z28 v8 (LS3).
