GM has made plans to equip the new Chevy Camaro with 4 cylinder engine as well as V6 and V8 engines. They are working to keep up with the rest of the competition and the other economical cars that are on the market. Because of these engine options they believe that 30% of the Camaro sales will be associated with the V8 models.
The bulk of sales will be of the 3.6 V6, at least until the four-cylinder models – probably using the turbocharged GM Ecotec 2.0-litre – arrive. However, a 425bhp top-line SS model is still said to be under consideration.
General Motors has confirmed that the Camaro will come in right-hand-drive form for the UK; it will arrive here in early 2010 with sales of around 600 cars a year planned. Half of these are expected to be convertible versions. While initially GM had considered only offering UK buyers high-spec V8s, this may now be revised.
