This morning, we reported the sixth-generation Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 is still coming, despite the 2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE grabbing the spotlight this past weekend during its debut at the Daytona 500.
And it’s been only a few days since the ZL1 1LE’s debut and yet another Chevrolet Camaro prototype needs your attention, Camaro faithful. This may be the 2019 Camaro Z/28.
Spy shots show the Camaro prototype with large amounts of camouflage covering the front and rear end before the vehicle was covered with a tarp. It could be that these photos show a mid-cycle refresh for the sixth-generation Camaro, but subtle design cues seem a tad too aggressive for a regular Camaro.
We say aggressive because the camo can’t hide what looks to be a pretty large front splitter and a hood flap, which could be hiding some sort of vent. Unlike the 2018 Camaro ZL1 1LE, there’s no massive wing at the rear for aerodynamics, but it could be that engineers are busy working on an all-new, naturally aspirated engine. Previous reports peg this to be a 5.5-liter LT6 V8 engine with 700 hp.
Or, it wouldn’t be too far-fetched for the Camaro Z/28 to once again borrow from the C7 Corvette. Leaked GM documents uncovered a 6.2-liter LT5 DOHC V8 engine coming for the 2018 Corvette. The Camaro Z/28 could be next in line to receive such an engine.
Whatever engine is under the hood, we expect it to arrive sans forced induction. Al Oppenheiser, lead Camaro engineer, has stated before that a hallmark to the Z/28 is a big, naturally-aspirated V8 engine.
