Angry new Camaro may get TURBO 4cyl engine!!?

wtf!?
http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=3269


Quote:
Speaking on the sidelines of the New York auto show, GM Vice Chairman Bob Lutz said the drivetrain under consideration for the Camaro is the same high-performance one used in the Pontiac Solstice and Saturn Sky roadsters. Itís a 2.0-liter turbocharged, direct-injected four-cylinder rated at 260 hp. Lutz said that if fuel prices continue to climb, the four-cylinder Camaro could see production.
Has he gone off the deepend?

Re: new Camaro may get TURBO 4cyl engine!!?

I'd be interested to see the MPG difference between a 4 cyl and 6 cyl Camaro.

What's the big deal? Just because they offer it, doesn't mean you have to buy one

4 bangers have come a LONG way since the 1982 Camaro 4 cylinder.

absolutely no surprise here. i said it out loud when the specs for the sky/soltice redline/gxp or whatever came out 2 years ago.

Re: new Camaro may get TURBO 4cyl engine!!?

260hp pushing 3800 pounds isn't that big of a deal.

The 3800 SC motor in my '97 GTP rated at 240hp helped it scoot pretty good. 14.5 in the 1/4 was pretty good.

Hell, my bone stock '97 Trans Am ran 14.1 in the 1/4 and it was rated at 275hp.

Why poo poo the idea without seeing real world data?
