Next-Generation Chevrolet Camaro Could Use 2.0-litre, 272 hp Engine

While the outgoing Chevrolet Camaro has consistently outsold the fifth-generation Ford Mustang, with the sixth-gen Mustang now out, the Camaro needs an update more than ever. Well, in 2016, the sixth-generation Chevrolet Camaro is set to arrive soon and it will bring with it a host of new features and could be available with a small 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine.

It is speculated that the entry-level Camaro could receive the same 272 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque four-cylinder turbo used by the Cadillac CTS and ATS. If it were to do so, it would make quite a lot of sense since the new Mustang can be ordered with a small 2.3-litre EcoBoost engine.

Elsewhere, the new Chevrolet Camaro should be available with updated versions of the current 3.6-litre V6 and the range-topping 6.2-litre V8 engine which will hopefully remain naturally-aspirated in some variations.

Alongside the possibility of borrowing the 2.0-litre engine from the Cadillac CTS and ATS, the new Camaro will likely utilise their Alpha architecture as well and ditch the current Zeta platform.

As for the design, previous reports have suggested that the styling of the next-gen Camaro will be updated but not to a revolutionary level. Instead, it will look like a “worked-over current-model Camaro”. Of course, this comes as no real surprise considering that the latest Mustang’s design isn’t drastically different from previous-generations of the car.
