Thanks to the new CAFE standards and the rising fuel prices in the US automakers are trying to figure out ways to increase fuel efficiency but at the same time also preserve power. The 260 horsepower 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder is the same engine offered in the Saturn Sky Redline, Pontiac Solstice GXP, and the SS versions of the Chevy HHR and Cobalt.
Lutz also spoke of this engine that is going to be used in a large Buick in China.
No official announcement has been made about the Camaro’s engines and if it will actually feature a 4-cylinder engine when it is released early next year. All that we know for sure right now is that the Camaro will feature a V6 and V8 powerplants, but with gas prices reaching $4 in some parts of the country you can expect GM to release some new “creative” powerplants in the future.
Lutz also mentioned that the Camaro will be priced higher than the Mustang, since GM sees the Camaro as a higher-end model. It will feature a better interior than the Mustang and a rear independent suspension.
