a reworked 4.2L I6 from the envoy would be perfect for the silverado base motors. They are very torquey 6 cylinders.

With vvt on the exhaust and intake and some DI i bet that motor could be 350-400hp with 350ft-lbs of torque.

E85 is a joke. The stuff burns at 2/3 the btu's of regular gasoline. The price difference at the pump does NOT make up for the loss of mpg's....My dad and I did a test in his Ford pickup on a long road trip. We ran both types of fuel through the tank and it turned out that regular gas was more economical than E85....Say what you want but I've seen it with my own eyes, E85 is a ploy...

Perhaps the Impala and Camaro will be sharing engines, but I doubt it'll go on the same platform. Unless they made a name change, the FWD Impala is reportedly too far along in development to make such a drastic change to RWD.

Now there supposedly is a RWD sedan coming to Chevrolet in the form of the Holden Commodore in the near future.

The LLT is already a great engine. I would be suprised if the fuel mileage didn't increase along with the horsepower. I don't see them changing to this engine just because it can run on E-85.

I wound what the compatibility of the LFX parts with the LLT would be. I imagine it would be the same basic block.

I didn't know you were the one that tipped us. But you know your info is always welcome.



As said before, The "LFX" and LLT seem to be the same engine family. It looks like it's just a few tweaks and E85 capability. Which is beyond great news.
No matter what, it looks like this means HP and TQ change for 2012.

I wonder what is in store for the SS......

If you're talking about the Homepage picture, it's a picture of an old test mule From back in '08-'09. They all had SS fascias.

Not to mention the fact that you already paid good tax money to subsidize that Corn Ethanol junk and probably didn't factor that into your calculations, so it is actually worse for your wallet and pollutes the environment more (due to the extra emissions caused by the creation of the product, not the actual consumption of it).

It's all about the alternative fuel credits helping car companies meat their CAFE requirments. The more E85 vehicles produced, provides credits for things like SUV's, V8 Camaros and Corvettes... Even though hardly any of those millions of E85 vehicles will ever use the stuff. I've had 3 E85 vehicles in a row for my daily drivers, never used it once and it is plenty avaliable around me. The price difference would have to be huge to make it worth it.
