V6 z28

Apparently this is old news but the 2014 z28 is going to come with the ls7 or twin turbo v6... At least that's what us weekly and a few other resources are saying. Thoughts an opinions? I own a v6 so obviously I'm not trying to start a v8 vs v6 thread bash. Personally I don't like the idea I feel like if your building a camaro that's designed for the track it needs a v8.

Any links to where it's published that the Z/28 will have an optional Twin V6? Because I don't believe it for a second.

Not what I heard....It's gonna be a V-6 in the base model Z/28, or possibly a turbo I-4, then as production and demand increase other engine options may become available....LS-7s are just too much of a gas guzzler and will be too expensive for the average Camaro Z/28 buyer....my $.02

What, the Z/28 is 60K+ I doubt fuel economy would be a big deal breaker.

Actually I do have a link ill find it but apparently it was from December 2012 I saw a few other sites saying it too. I see now that it wasn't true (thank god) I just was looking for info online on my phone and saw like 3 postings anout a v6 z28. Should have done more research before I opened my mouth.

Just type v6 camaro z28 into google you will be amazed at just how many sites said this was going to be an option. Lesson learned: only use c5 for camaro information not the Internet

No worries, man. There was lots of speculation before it was officially introduced.

...no, it's a legit question, to the OP, go back and research what has already been posted on this board or within official GM releases to gain a better understanding of what the new Z/28 model is, and what it will be able to do. I understand you may have a lack of historical knowledge, due to age or lack of expereince over time, or not following media releases of information so far, that would make you not fully understand the process at work, no disrespect to you. That's all fine, but the info is out there for you to peruse and gain further insight without any interference here because you will encounter less than helpful posters at times here as that have been posted already. Research, read, spend the time, become informed.

Thank you very much for the response. You are correct in that historically age is not on my side. I was basically googling the z28 to get info and saw the v6 thing and it said that the engine code or whatever was confirmed by Chevy so I posted it trying to get an understanding because it did seem very ridiculous even with my little knowledge of the z28 that it would come in a v6. Five mins more of reading and I figured out it wasn't true.should have done a little more
before posting.

..and thank you for your post. You are a critical part of our community. C5 is a wealth of information. An up to the minute real time reference of what is happening with the Camaro, plus lively debates on past models and their historical relevance to todays model.

Sure it does. Just like z24 means 2 door/4 cylinder and z71 means 7 door/1 cylinder.
