- 4 Cylinder, 2.7L, Turbo engine, 310 HP, 25 mpg combined, 0-60 mph in 5.2 seconds - $0
- 4 Cylinder, 2.0L, Hybrid Turbo engine, 365 HP (total system power), 30 mpg combined, 0-60 mph in 4.4 seconds - $4,000
- 8 Cylinder, 6.2L, 455 HP, 20 mpg combined, 0-60 mph in 4.0 seconds - $4,000
- 8 Cylinder, 6.2L, Hybrid engine, 545 HP (total system power), 24 mpg combined, 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds - $8,000
The naturally-aspirated 6.2-liter is the LT1 from the present Camaro SS, with the same horsepower. The $4,000 cost would be a marked reduction from the price spread for that motor now; it takes $9,500 to go from the most expensive 2019 Camaro hardtop with the 2.0-liter turbo to the least expensive Camaro with the 6.2-liter. The survey options mean a buyer could spend $4,000 to get either a sizable chunk of power and performance along with 20 percent better fuel economy, or a lot more power and that NA V8 soundtrack with less frugality.
The hybrid V8 would throw in 90 extra horsepower and the 20 percent improved fuel economy over the unassisted LT1 for an $8,000 upcharge.
Again, the survey might come to nothing, as a GM spokesperson told Motor Authority when asked about it: "We routinely survey our customers across all of our vehicles on potential future technologies or features, but that doesn't mean we are going to institute them." We would like to see the survey results — the comments on the Camaro6 forum run the gamut. This is a peek into what Chevrolet's considering, though. And with the Corvette expected to yield a high-horsepower hybrid, and a Mustang hybrid on the way, it's easy to imagine the Camaro following those two coupes down the same green-power chute.
