For the last few years, rumors have been abound that General Motors is working on at least one twin-turbo V6 powerplant to be used in its models. According to leaked documents, one model that could receive the twin-turbo V6 will be the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro.
According to a VIN card leaked on GM’s internal website, the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro will get the LS7 engine 7.0-liter V8 engine found in the Corvette Z06.
It’s also a likely candidate for new LF3 twin-turbo 3.6-liter V6, which is listed as a future engine for GM products in North America, though no exact model is listed. That engine has also been rumored for an upcoming Cadillac ATS-V.
As Camaro enthusiasts will know, the COPO drag racer is powered by the LS7, but those racers aren’t sold with VIN numbers. Currently the Z06 comes standard with 505 hp, but the COPO Camaro packs 550 hp. Either way, an LS7-powered Camaro with more than 500 hp is more than welcoming. As for the twin-turbo V6, early rumors has it sitting around the 335-hp figure.
