Posted by: admin In: Main ()
According to a report on GMinsidenews, GM is nearing completion of a new, twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine to take on Ford’s recently announced 3.5L EcoBoost, also twin-turbocharged.
Several engineers at GM have confirmed the engine is in its later stages of development and has been assigned the “LF3″ designation code. Although power and torque specifications have not yet been released, sources within the company say GM’s new twin-turbo LF3 V6 will produce similar figures to Ford’s 272kW offering.
Might we see this new twin turbo V6 engine in the V6 Camaro sometime in the near future?! We hope so!
