2018 Camaro the 350 427 and 302 Cubic inch motors are back!!!
« on: November 01, 2017, 05:10:39 PM »
Hey guys I just saw this interesting presentation on the 2018 COPO Camaro and at the end of the video they announce that with each COPO you can choose which motor you want installed, with the option of purcashsing each of the other 2 motors, that will VIN matched to the car. I was not as impressed with the 350 cubic inch motor annoucement since Chevrolet has had a motor in there line up with very close to 350 C.I. , but the announcement of a 302 I thought was very interesting, and makes me wonder if this will be the motor designated for use in the upcoming Z/28.

If Chevrolet came out with a 6th gen Z/28 that indeed had a 302 C.I. motor will that get customers in the show rooms to purchase?

of course I am sure it will depend on price, and with the extra marketing power they are bound to use, I assume the new Z/28 will be priced at around 75k, BUT will they offer it in more colors, and a few more options ?

Could you special order it in "orange crush" ?

All questions I guess we will find out in time. I did not see the dyno numbers for each COPO engine. if someone wants to post that.
