The options added make this particular vehicle out of the reach of most. I have a 2015 RS and I have few complaints and I imagine that the 400 plus hp will make it beastly but for most unwieldy. I have 320 + and I really have not wanted for more…
The V6 really is a very good package. It will blow many of the past V8 models into dust.
Also the price is very good on one too.
Now if they could only get the sound of the V8 out of the V6. It is not bad as a 60 degree engine is not bad but the 8 does still have a bit more rumble.
I hope they follow through with the 1LE V6 package as it would make for a potent car.
Note the new V6 will run 13’s in the quarter miles.
Exactly – more than enough. Before the new direct injection stuff the Camaro never had more than the ’70 LT1 that was in the Z28 and that had 360. If you do a lot of track time then maybe I could see it but the speed limits are still where they are. How much horsepower do you need when you have to stop at roughly 1 light every 3/4 mile or so?
