Fen, what your best prediction on when we will see the new LT1 in the Camaro? Also, has it been confirmed anywhere when (MY15, 16, 17) we are going to get a 6th gen?

Nice vette pics! That yellow is loud and proud!

It won't be in a 5th gen, that's for sure.

I would expect to see the 6th gen arrive in 2015 as a 2016 model.

This shot says "V6VVT" on the engine cover.

So...is it the 3.6 or the new 4.3?? I've never seen a cover look like this for the 3.6 LFX engine. If it is the 3.6 the oil cap is always to the right of the intake throttle body and maybe it isn't visible in this shot...but I don't see it.

See the spy shot:



Versus the LFX in the Cadillac ATS

Reuss said no powertrain sharing between the two truck lines, so I'm inclined to believe it's the LFX. Could be slightly modified for truck applications.

I'd love to see the LV3 in them though.

Rather see one with an L86, but to each their own

It would be disappointing if there was no V8 Colorado.

I don't think people wanted to spend 30K on a V8 Colorado.

Fen,
How well did the V8 Colorados sell?

I think a V8 small truck is cool, but really there is no point in my opinion. If they wanted to build a true "Extreme" version of the truck, lowered, and handled better, with a V8 that would be awesome, but otherwise I don't see a need for it.

The 4.3 or a small diesel in this truck would be more than adequate. Again...these small trucks NEED to have a worthy difference in price and mpgs to be relevant...otherwise why bother? Even the 3.6 would hall/pull plenty good for what I'd want (and get decent mpgs), but yes the 4.3 would be the better work engine and as a bonus the 4.3 will shut down to 4 cylinders, so it might even better the better FE option.

You start asking for V8 engines and large towing capacities and your basically killing the idea of what makes a small truck good. Most people that really want a small truck feel the current midsize trucks are too big. I feel the size of the current colorado is big enough, just right for today's market...why make it any bigger? I hope these aren't, but from the photos they look like they might be which is disspointing to me.

Why don't small/midsize trucks sell well? B/c they aren't what they are supposed to be...small/cheap/reliable/efficient (or some combination of that)

i agree here, in the 90s/early 200s when gas was still decently cheap a V8 midsizer was a fine idea. It offered towing and hauling in between the compact and fullsizers and still offered a lower price. What killed the midsizers is the fuel mileage and they just got to big and too expensive. A small 4 cylinder/V6/small diesel pickup with at least a few grand lower price than a comparable fullsizer would be great.

And this is exactly why my dad loves his 2002 4-Cylinder Toyota Tacoma. Every time he brings it in for service the dealership tries to convince him to trade it in and offers well above Blue Book prices because there is a significant demand for these.

100%. Perfect pickup workhorse with the additional torque. I'd be all over that. I don't need a fullsize.

Not sure, but probably not exactly well.

Agreed. My thoughts on offering a V8 would be as some sort of performance/sport model. I personally favour an off-roader instead of a street truck. But either way, I would be way more receptive to using the Colorado for the base of such a truck than the Silverado.
