What’s That Noise – Four-Cylinder Power Hasn’t Spoiled The New Camaro
If we are right the last four-cylinder Chevrolet Camaro was the third-generation car’s “Iron Duke” 2.5-liter from the 1980s. We are far away from the 80s and times have changed – we even have a 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine under the hood of the latest Ford Mustang. Now we could ‘enjoy’ the ride of a 2016 Chevy Camaro powered by GM’s turbocharged 2.0-liter beast. When we say ‘four-cylinder Camaro’ we are close to thinking of a Prius, but with three times the Iron Duke’s power output it promises a good ride. We will see this engine under the hood in both the coupe and the new convertible.
If you are curious about the performance numbers, we have exactly 275 horsepower at 5500 rpm and 295 lb-ft of torque at 3000 rpm. If we compare it to the 335 HP 3.6-liter V6 and the SS’s 455 HP 6.2-liter V8, GM managed to save about 100 pounds from the total weight. The good thing here is that the sixth generation Chevy Camaro curb weighs about 200 pounds less. If you go to the dealership you will find that this the turbocharged four-cylinder Camaro comes with a standard six-speed manual transmission. If you are willing to get the eight-speed automatic transmission, you will have to pay $1495.
There is one thing that you can’t have here – the dual-mode exhaust. It is available only for the V6 and V8 cars.
