How much power to you think that the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro V6 model will have when it arrives?
Source: The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro SS Will Have More Power - and So Will the Base V6 - Torque NewsThe 2016 Chevrolet Camaro SS will most likely be powered by the same LT1 that powers the current 2014 and 2015 Corvette Stingray fastback and convertible. In Corvette duty, the new LT1 packs 455 or 460 horsepower and 460 or 465lb-ft of torque depending on whether or not the performance exhaust package is chosen. Considering that the current Camaro SS shared a V8 engine with the previous “base” Corvette with power ratings which were very similar, we can expect that the 6th generation Camaro in SS form will pack somewhere in the area of 450 horsepower (if not slightly more). That figure will likely be more than enough to give the Camaro SS a healthy advantage over the Mustang GT, but it will also create a huge gap in performance between the base Camaro V6 models and the Camaro SS. This massive difference in power between the standard V6 and V8 models could hurt the sales numbers of the V6 models – and that is a problem that GM will need to address in order to maintain their stranglehold of the muscle car segment.
