While it’s not quite the debut of the production ‘12 ZL1, the release of new LFX V6 puts another viable horsepower option on the market for the fifth-generation Camaro. Production of the LFX started earlier this summer, but it wasn’t until recently that the cars started to hit the streets. Thanks to our friends over at Camaro5.com, we get a first look at the production LFX V6.
Back in May, we brought you the news of GM making improvements to their V6 Camaro engine in the form of the LFX. Camaro5 members began receiving their new V6 Camaros in the last couple weeks and couldn’t wait to share their cars with the world. Thanks to these individuals, photos have been posted on the forum of the new 3.6L engine.
While it may only be a V6, it still packs a powerful 323 HP punch at 6,800 RPM. This is 11 horses more than the previous V6 used in the Camaro, making the LFX the engine in the regular sports car segment with the most standard power. Most impressive is the fact that there is no loss in fuel economy from the previous engine with the LFX Camaros getting an EPA-estimated 30 MPG on the highway.
Thanks goes to Camaro5 forum members for sharing the pictures of their new V6s. We hope that they enjoy their new Chevys with more horsepower than most V8s had back in the day. For more pictures, check out Camaro5.com.
