3,400 Lb Z/28?
 
If this is true it could make for a very intriguing 2016 Z/28....


"Cadillac claims a less than 3,400-pound curb weight on the ATS will be one of the lowest in the segment along with nearly 50/50 weight balance."

EDIT: The weight is true :confused0068:

"All-new, lightweight, rear-wheel-drive architecture with one of the lowest curb weights in the segment – less than 3,400 pounds"

Post 16... Thanks Fen. :thumbsup:

As much as I want a 5th Gen Z/28 I can see them waiting to use the name plate on this platform.

Would probably be heavier, but still... that's a nice diet

OMG... seats getting smaller and smaller. Can't say it fits the avg American profile!

OldScoolCamaro 01-08-2012 02:07 PM

Well looks like all those clamoring for a lightened Camaro will have it!. And significantly I might add compared to Gen5. The upcoming Caddy and Camaro are based on the same architecture, so expect the weights to be very similar between them. Gen6 Camaro, as it looks now, will be back at the curb weight of the last of the F bodies in 2002. Well played GM, well played....:clap:

So, as Mac says...resurrect the Z-28 then for Gen6, and I propose they make a 1LE track pack version < aka Z-28, but not named as so> now for the last of the Gen5. :)

I am really torn.... I would really love to have a 5th Gen Z/28 but a 3400 pound Z/28 would be even better.

Great news, for all Camaro's, not just the Z/28.

Guys, I wouldn't hold my breath on that. From the article, it sounds like the ATS will START at 3400 pounds, for the N/A Ecotec 4-cyl version (an appalling choice to offer in a Cadillac by the way...reading that gives me instant flashbacks of the Cimmeron).

A 5th gen V8 Camaro would likely be closer to 3600+ lbs on the same platform. The only way you get a Z/28 Camaro at 3400 lbs will either be if it is a 4-cylinder, or if it turns out to be a "stripper" model, similar to what Porche does with certain models, where leather, power seats, air conditioning, a radio, most of the sound insulation, and possibly the back seats are deleted in an all out effort to reduce weight, or, some combination of both.
