  • 6.2L V8 Leaked for Mid-Engine Corvette?

    After reading this article (https://www.thedrive.com/news/28662/...ter-turbo-four) and seeing that the 2021 Ford Bronco engine may have been leaked on a Canadian tire site (https://www.canadiantire.ca/en/automotive.html), I decided to check and see if they happened to have anything for the 2020 Corvette. Lo and behold:

    If this is to be believed, the C8 will get a 6.2L V8, the same size as the current LT1. Now to check how accurate it might be, this is the only option listed and it appears the site lists the LT1 as the only option for C7 model years as well, so this could be just a carry-over. That said, the site seems to be pretty accurate when it does include options, as it currently includes the Shelby GT500's 5.2L V8 as an engine option for the 2020 Mustang, and curiously the site only includes info for the Corvette, Silverado, and Spark for Chevy's 2020 lineup. Only 23 days until we know for sure, but this would seem to incline we are likely to get an upgraded version of the LT1 in the C8 Corvette!

    The displacement does conform to the leaked dealership order options. What remains a mystery is the feature set, especially the apparent dual in-block cams glimpsed in the first C8 teaser video.

      An assumption. No vendor has any more info on the motors than what is out there (NOTHING). And that is speculation on this Vendor's part.

        We have more leading toward confirmation, specifically the Jalopnik, leaked GM WorkBench Connect specs.

        I am very confident that we will see a LT2, an evolved LT1. As to its power, we have seen such a wide variety of estimates, that we clearly have no factual info yet.

            You are correct John, this is probably just more substantiating evidence

            Does anyone know what "HO" means in the LT2 order code? I thought I knew at one point but I can't remember for the life of me now...

              Well I know I am dating myself but HO used to mean High Output in my Pontiac Trans Am days. Don't know if that is still the meaning here or not.
