if they make the ZL1 they will put that ls7 in it. no doubt in my mind. also to guys you think that the price of the ls7 won't come down by 2009? technology will move forward and the manufacturing process will become more streamlined and that will drive costs down. so I can see the LS7 being in the car for less then 12k which is the price of the engine alone.

I've heard "LS3" and "LS9" engines mentioned...but nothing specifically.

I read an article in the Nov. issue of 'Motor Trend' which may "shed some light". The article was 'Chevy's secret Impala', and the engines mentioned may give a clue as to what will be available in the new Camaro.

They are; 3.6 liter V6, 5.3 liter V8, and a 6.2 liter V8.

The LS9 would be amazing but it's out of most peoples price range and I'm sure they'd rather put that in a Z06 and put the LS7 in the Camaros.

I just hope that the base V8 model will be a minimum 400 hp. We know GM will have to be competitive w/ Ford's GT at 25K. That would be a great starting point and then we could just move up from there.

I'm surfing late at night as usual. I'm starting to believe a post I read about these engine options. Dude says he has very reliable information that neither the LS2 nor LS7 are going into the new Concept and that they will, for sure, be completely new engines offered in the Concept. It makes sense to me seeing as though they are constantly woking on new engines...not to mention that we even have the diesels that will be coming available in two to three years. I'm not saying that they are going to put in a diesel engine. I'm the last person to know that. But, they really have us guessing. I'm sure whatever it is, they won't let us down.

Of course everthing is speculation at this point, but I have also heard (from multiple sources) that the LS2 & 7 are going to be phased out by then and have newer versions available in time for the Camaro. In fact, if the Camaro is released in the first year with an LS2 I will most definitely hold off on buying one. Last thing I want is to get screwed over like the people who bought the 2004 GTOs only to see '05 bring in the bad 6.0 and 50 more HP

Man you are right there I probably think they will have the SS and Z/28 later on. And I will probably do the same, hold off for awhile no matter how bad I want one.

well I am sure that Chevrolet won't let us down. I mean it all makes sense new concept Camaro New motors. Just like they did when they first started with the camaro. I think it is good to keep us guessing but on the other hand I would really like to find out what he hell is going on with the new camaro. But I don't think we have anything to worry about we will be able to pull up beside anykind of Mustang and smoke it.

That's something that really concerns me too. I want the first one, but I don't want to turn around a year later and have a car offered for $400 more and 50 more hp standard. That could tick me off.

I will say this right now to clear all this up....No one has seen or heard of the engines that will go into the V6 or V8 models. They have not ever been heard of by the public.

Oh well... I know I will be satisfied with whatever they produce as long as it has at least 300HP and gets good gas milage (for a powerful V8 anyway). Guess it is back to sitting and waiting.

I can say if you want an engine that puts out what an LS1 does AND gets extremely good gas mileage, you ... believe me, will not be let down. ... Let's see...what am I forgetting....

I would like to see a 427SS version with a LS7. I doubt that the LS7 (or LS2) will make it to production. But, dreams are free!!!

From what I can gather, the V8's that will be in the new Camaro do not exist yet. But I'm betting they'll be pretty darn good!!!!
