GM LT2 V-8 Engine
The LT2 is believed to be a future eight-cylinder engine from General Motors.
Following is speculative and unconfirmed information about the future GM LT2 engine. This page is a continuous work-in-progress and will be updated on a regular basis as we await official details from General Motors.
If you notice any inaccuracies about the information provided, or have edits to suggest, please let us know here.
Currently, no official information is available about the LT2 engine, including specifics such as its displacement, output, and configuration.
We can, however, deduce a few things by reading the proverbial tea leaves. The biggest hunch we have about an LT2 engine being in the pipeline is the naming space available between LT1 and LT4 in GM’s engine RPO codes: though GM has released the naturally-aspirated LT1 and supercharged LT4 overhead valve V-8 engines, it has yet to release an engine with the LT2 or LT3 RPO designations.
LT2 engine specifications are currently not available. We will update this page when we have more concrete information about the motor.
The LT2 will displace 6.2L (376 ci) and feature the same OverHead Valve (OHV), or push-rod configuration as the LT1. Supporting technologies will include Direct Injection, Variable Valve Timing and Active Fuel Management.
The LT2 engine will belong to GM’s fifth-generation Small Block V8 engine family. In fact, it will be an updated version of the LT1, and will therefore have much in common with the following GM Gen 5 Small Block engines:
We will update this section when LT2 engine pictures become available.
