So often, drivers are so consumed by the bold, distinct styling of the Chevy Camaro that they overlook what is under the hood. Chevrolet aims to change that with the announcement of the beast of an engine that will be powering the 2014 Camaro Z/28, and the performance figures that jump so far off the page that they demand to be noticed.
Corvette racing has teamed up with the Camaro team to outfit the 2014 Chevy Camaro Z/28 with the track-tested and race-proven LS7 7.0-liter V8. The iconic LS7 engine was used in the C6 Corvette Z06, but has been modified to propel the Camaro Z/28. Powered by the LS7, the Z/28 is able to generate 500 horsepower and 470 lb.-ft. of torque.
“In the Camaro lineup, it complements a range of great V-8 choices, starting with the 426-horsepower LS3 in the Camaro SS and ending with the supercharged LSA rated at 580 horsepower in the Camaro ZL1,” said John Rydzewski, assistant chief engineer for small-block engines. “The LS7’s low mass and high rpm capability make it the perfect choice for the lightweight, track-capable Z/28, exemplifying all the strengths and attributes of the small-block architecture.”
