We know that for the 2014 model year, the high performance LS engines are going bye-bye for Corvette and in their place will be the new Generation 5 LT1 V8s. But that doesn’t mean GM is going to stop building the LS7 and LS9 engines for other applications. Thanks to some sleuthing at Camaro5.com, it does look like Chevrolet is planning on using the 505 hp LS7 engine for the 2014 Camaro.
The LS7 engine is now showing up on the GM dealer VIN cards for the 2014 model year as engine code “E” in the Camaro’s 2014 VIN (click to enlarge):
Of course, this has got the Camaro guys all fired up and many are hoping that this is a sign that Chevy will bring back the Z/28 model. For more on this, check out Camaro5.com.
