GM High-Tech Performance Blogs
It is time to fuel the fires of speculation, but this time it comes straight from the horse's mouth
1) 2014-2015 could very well be the last model years to have LS engines, which will be replaced by Gen V variants.
2) Among the nine models said to have Gen V engines by 2015, we already know of the Corvette, Silverado, and Sierra. Undoubtedly the list will also include: Camaro, Escalade, Tahoe, Yukon, and Suburban. That leaves two spots open. Unless GM is counting the ZL1 and Z07 as separate models (which I don't think it was), my guess is that the SS sedan and CTS-V will make up the other two. However, we could see a full-size Cadillac sporting a Gen V engine.
3) Not only will we have a Gen V powered Camaro for the 2016 model year, but it most likely will have a lighter weight Alpha-based chassis built in the USA.
4) As production wraps up on the Gen IV, this leaves a big question mark for the Romulus plant as well as the Performance Build Center (recently relocated to the Bowling Green Corvette plant) that churns out the remaining LS7s for the Camaro Z/28. Most likely the Performance Build Center will be re-purposed, just as its last location in Wixom, MI was for the production of the COPO Camaro. But at the same time, we can't help but wonder if GM has something else up its sleeve.
