Anyone going for the V6???

If I had it my way there'd be no V6 Camaro, just V8's. But hey, gotta make the new Camaro affordable for everyone right? So who's considering the V6? I heard we'll have two V6 options, hoping it's only one though.

I was actually thinking about this earlier today. If they came out with a V-6 that got 300+HP and had substantial fuel benefits over that of a V-8 and cost significantly less then i would consider it. However, it would take an aweful lot to keep me from getting my Z/28 (or SS, whichever it may be)

I saw a blk C6 Z06 all tinted up w/ the polished wheel option explode onto the 5 freeway yesterday heading home, I could have peed on myself!!! In that moment I thought how incredible it would be if the Camaro SS had/has the same effect visually? I'm thinking they'll suceed, and still manage to deliver a performance vehicle that delivers 26 mpg on the highway, just like the C6 Z06.

LOL Not many on these forums would rather have a V6 but the majority of the buying public will - the survival depends on it

Very good, and true points.

A V6, entry-level, more affordable Camaro, appealing to first-time buyers, is essential for the Camaro's success.

It was true back then, and this time around as well boss. I saw more V-6 RS models than Z's or SS's combined.


Just build them GM!!...............OH, and HURRY UP!!!

Hence the reason I posted the question. Not everyone thinks the same way we do.

I'd feel defeated if I bought a V6. Im keeping my lil toy car for my daily driver, so why not have the V8? You only get one chance at this life. Spend all the chips!

I was thinking the same thing. Wouldn't mind the better gas miles and cheaper price if still had great performance. But like you said would have to be over 300 hp. But still tough to say with no specs and prices. Something tells me when I take the V8 for a ride i'll be leaving with it tho.
