We understand without a doubt that the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro SS will be powered by the exact same LT1 V8 that motivates the C7 Corvette Stingray, yet bit has actually been stated about the Sixth gen V6 Camaro. Operatinged on General Motors’ choice of using an engine in as lots of versions as feasible, it would certainly appear likely that the LS and also LT level 2016 Camaro designs would acquire the new LGX V6 that will also power the new Cadillac CT6. Should that be the case, the 2016 Camaro LS and LT should have much more horse power, even more torque as well as better gas economic climate compared to the outgoing versions.

The New 3.6 L V6
For several years now, General Motors has actually been using their naturally aspirated 3.6 L V6 in literally every car that has a V6 engine alternative. From muscle mass cars to trucks to luxury sedans to crossovers, the 3.6 L V6 engine has done an amazing job of mixing efficiency with efficiency, but with the new Cadillac CT6, the world is presented to the next chapter of the GM V6.
The new LGX measures out to the very same 3.6 liters as the present V6 engine, however some new parts and also some adjusting fine-tunes enable this brand-new V6 to make 335 horsepower as well as 284lb-ft of torque in the CT6. The present base design Camaro V6 LFX engine supplies 323 horsepower and 278lb-ft of torque, so if the base model engine from the new Cadillac was transplanted right into the 6th gen Camaro in the precise same form, the 2016 Camaro LS and LT would learn 12 horsepower and 6lb-ft of torque.
The Camaro LGX
We should bear in mind that the Cadillac CT6 is not an efficiency car– it is a deluxe car– so there is an opportunity that the General Motors designers could possibly tune the brand-new LGX V6 a bit more strongly for the Camaro. The current V6 Camaro has around a hundred less money horsepower (varying by transmission choice) than the Camaro SS, so if the Camaro LT1 has 450-460 horsepower, the Camaro LS and LT could possibly have 340-350 horsepower and still leave a very comfortable performance void between the two engine alternatives.
While also V6 muscular tissue vehicles aren’t acquired with solid energy economic situation numbers in mind, the new V6 in the Cadillac CT6 is slated to be about 9 % much more effective compared to the existing 3.6 L mill. In its most reliable form, the 2015 V6 Camaro acquires 19mpg around town, 30mpg on the motorway and 22 integrated. A 9 % improvement on those figures would certainly cause 20.7 mpg city, 32.7 mpg highway and 24mpg combined. When you then factor in the new 8-speed automatic transmission that will nearly absolutely back all of the 2016 Camaro engines (in addition to the 7-speed manual), the 6th gen Camaro could make a push for the title of one of the most efficient muscle car in America while still being the most powerful “base” model on the marketplace.
