2023 Chevrolet Camaro – Moving to a rear-engined design an engine with a middle position is one of the biggest changes Chevrolet is ever making to its legendary Corvette. It wasn’t an easy transition. Chevy initiated the process by putting an engine behind the Holden Ute to prove the idea. It appears to have been a success because this C8 Corvette is far more modern than the predecessor car it replaces, and everyone is thinking about when another automaker might launch a mid-engined rival.
2023 Chevrolet Camaro New Design
It turns out that it appears that the next engine-driven mid-engined American sports car will not be directly from Ford and Fiat Chrysler. It will instead come from Chevy who has announced that the 2023 Chevrolet Camaro will be mid-engined. This is a major step for Chevy is a huge step for the company, since it has two mid-engined sports cars within its lineup, similar to Ferrari as well as Lamborghini. The details are not available for the 2023 Camaro however, these new photos provide a glimpse of what this car might appear like. Naturally, the addition of a second middle-engined car in the line-up indicates that Chevy will keep the Camaro under that of the Corvette with regards to performance.
What does this mean for Corvette’s V8 engine? If both cars came with the same LT2 engine with 490 horsepower, we’re not sure why you couldn’t go with the Corvette. We’re inclined to believe that Chevy may reduce their Camaro’s engine options, and only offer the turbocharged V6 and turbocharged four-cylinder options and possibly the hybrid.
2023 Chevrolet Camaro Rumors
Muscle car enthusiasts may feel sad about the loss of V8 engines but with numerous rumors pointing toward the all-electric Camaro coming in 2023, we think that this middle-engined car is the most exciting alternative. The Camaro will likely be lighter and smaller than the Corvette and, unlike its larger cousin, may even have the possibility of a manual transmission.
