It was mentioned a bit in a thread on camaro6. The New one comes in at 4145lb per the release, while the outgoing model was/is something like 4204 or 4220lbs. That gives you a loss of 59-75lbs, which...

Wheelbase should be closer to ATS's Alpha, what that means for interior space I don't know. The only thing is, looking at the new CTS-V for example, the trim levels with the heartier drivetrains...

Wasn't the last gen CTS-V's curb weight around 4220lbs.? If that's correct then we're looking at a good 75lb loss with an excellent gain of 84hp and 79ft.lb.

From what I understood from most of the reviews and from forums posts, most of the fault lays with the fluid. A flush and swap to DOT 5.1 seems to take care of the fade issue.

Why would the drive train be heavier? The 5.2 is NA (no sc of turbo wiring, tubing, or piping), the Tremec 3160 weighs 115lbs(dry) vs the MT-82's 123.5lbs(dry), it'll sadly have the same 2-piece...

I think he's referring to the Gen"6" Camaro. When he says he's hoping for less weight. But then again i can't be sure. His lack of punctuation makes it hard to discern what he's saying.

Who says/said that the 2.3EB was to replace "V8 power"?

It's the base level engine. Yeah, there's the 3.7 but we all know the lion's share of its sales, until it's phased out, will be fleet.
