I could definitely see that. 3.9L V6 as the base, 5.3L V8 as the Z28, and the LS2 for the SS.
There's absolutely no way in hell that it will have 300 hp for the base model.
They won't let this get anywhere near the Z06, don't worry.
Forget about the #$%#ing stupid pushrod V6, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD!!!
Use the 4.2L I-6 Trailblazer engine for the 6 cylinder base model. I kinda like the idea of the Z28 and SS having different motors - that's cool <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
They are saying they are putting a 6.0 pushrod with 400 hp into it.
If they want to have any chance in hell of this actually competing with the Mustang for sales, they'll need a V6 in the lineup.
Because the general public cares whether it's an inline or V formation?
That would be the LS2.
That is the LS2.
LS4 = 5.3L
LS1 & LS6 = 5.7L
LS2 = 6.0L
LS7 = 7.0L

Wait, I get it.
This thing really does make the mustang look pssy...
But it won't look anywhere near as aggressive in production form.
Ha, aside from smaller wheels and some other minor things, it'll probably be 99% the same. I doubt it'll change much.
it'll change as much as the mustang concept did for what we got...which was a bunch. but im sure it'll still look great, like the mustang ended up being. 99% reality?? dreams..
it obviously wont have those monster wheels but the body looks pretty realistic. AND kikass. not as good as the challenger in my opinion but none-the-less kikass.
check out what they thought it would be like a lil while ago.
The 4.2L puts out 291 hp. The 5.3L puts out 303 hp. You really think they'd have the base model that close to the Z28? I think not. 242 vs 303 is a lot more likely and provides an actual incentive to spend the extra $3k or so that the Z28 would cost over the base. Plus, it'd be easier to mount a OHV V6 than the DOHC I6, especially because the Z28 and SS would be using OHV V8's. Much less packaging changes than would be required if the different models used totally different engine configurations. Also, people buying Camaros really don't give a shit about smoothness and the 3.9L still has about a 30 hp advantage over the base Mustang for the inevitable comparisons.
If it looks like that, then #$%# everything else.. That's easily the best looking of the three.
I don't know, I think it'll be pretty much the same like the Solstice and the Solstice concept. Not much different and I'd say less of a change than from the mustang concept to the production mustang.
That is seriously becoming my dream car.
Man that black/grey one <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/amazed.gif"></A>
Can't decide whether I like the looks of this or the Challenger more, but either one looks way better than the Mustang to me.
