6th gen, no V8????

So I was surfing the great world wide web yesterday looking for 6th gen info because i am due to sell my BMW in 2015. I have heard the 6th would be coming out around then. So ran across a article saying that the 6th gen could possibly not have a v8 option due to all the government restrictions on emissions and gas mileage and all. Has anyone else read anything like this? I lost the article cause I was a little busy, but wow....if there is any truth behind what I read then I may be dropping the Bimmer a little early...

i also heard that. i doubt it is true, i bet the v8 will cost way more than the v6 to try to keep production numbers down.

The 5.5L V8 in the next gen Vette (C7) will likely carry over to the next gen Camaro...

As long as there is gas, there will be V8s... economic lesson learned from the '70s

I dunno, by then we will probably have V6s pumping out the same numbers as current V8s.

If we continue down the nanny-state path we're on, the morale suppression team will eventually kill the V-8.

It is too far out to make any disputes on whether it does or not. Hell, nobody has heard what the pricing is going to be for the 2012 Camaro 2SS. Don't worry about it till the time gets closer.

I know there's a lot of pressure on the car world to be more economical it will happen eventually I'm sure. No real way to know for sure till it happens though

A V-6's would have to be turboed, or supercharged........with warranty canceling bolt-ons and tuning to get the ft. lbs. of torque and HP close to the standard V-8.

Now that you V-6 folks have the performance..... you might need to repair that performance enhanced motor with money out of your own billfold!

When you think about it a V-8 doesn't sound bad and it is a SS!

turboed engines are more trouble than they are worth

I doubt that the Camaro will lose the V8. There is too much demand for them.

I don't think you'll see the V-8 go away because of fuel economy. My 2010 get's 24mpg on the highway right now. I figure every year they will get better and better, and still produce a ton of HP. As technology gets better, so will the HP and Fuel Economy numbers. I just wish I could squeeze a few more MPG's out of my truck- that thing is a gas pig!

Well as price goes up demand will go down... to some extent anyway. This stuff is gunna be worth more than gold one day down the road (He'll it probably is already). I just can't imagine there being a V-8 with Prius like Fuel Economy anywhere in the near future. The man wants our dependancy on foriegn oil to reduce one way or another you know except taping into our own reserves

I don't think we really have to worry about there not being a V8 offered. I stated in another thread that I hoped they would continue to offer V8s for a very long time even if they are smaller than the current generation. If they do use the 5.5L V8 from the next generation corvette, then that's good for everybody. Better mileage and you'll still get that V8 sound. They have 0.6L 4 cyl engines, so theoretically you could have a 1.2L V8. But I'll be honest with you, it won't sound anything like the current V8s! But I am willing to bet that even if they have to start making 3L V8 engines for emissions purposes, there will still be demand for them because it's a "V8" The legendary 454ci engine was 7.4L You can't buy that in a car today, but I don't really see people complaining because the modern 6.2L or even Fords 5.0L can pump out as much HP and torque with the proper modifications. Maybe in 20 years they can pump out similar numbers out of a naturally aspirated 3L. Who knows...

It will have a v8, just not a 6.2... If I'm correct I read in motortrend this week that the new platform will feature a smaller v8 like the 2013 c7 vette is getting

wont happen The government can put emission limits sure but as long as there is a large consumer interest and it creates profit with in the market large companies as well as people will fight against it. In the US if they limit what we drive their will be plain and simply be an uprising, just like if you take our guns.
