Re: Replaced the Impala

said by vue666:

I believe the 2008 Impala SS with the 3.8 produces something like 240hp... I guess Buicks are for old men... LOL

The 2013 Impala uses the 300 hp 3.6L V6 from the Camaro.

The totally redesigned 2014 version will use same engine with 3 more HP and a 6.8 second 0-60 time.

Who needs a V8?

Yup, a St. Catharines-built engine no less.

they also build it in Flint, so it is possible that engine production would be shifted there...not a biggie, since that is kind of GM's new "staple V6", so it will be used in a TON of product.

Engine production isn't moving. The engines that are made at the St. Catharines plant go to assembly lines across all of North America, including the Malibu and a few others. St. Catharines also makes the high-end V8s.

GM also recently invested a ton of money into that plant to move the transmission line from Windsor to there,.

The 3.6 litre V6 makes almost as much horsepower as the 396 Chevy offered in the 69 Camaro...
Interesting...they are offering an Ecotec 2.4L which will be the first ever 4 cylinder Impala since it's inception in 1958...

i know engine production isn't moving...i just said that the engine is also built in Lansing, so it is possible that the engines used in the Camaro will use the Lansing built engine, since they are geographically quite close (and may do it for other reasons).

Yes, that is quite possible, but like I said they already use these engines at other US-based plants. I don't know the output of either plant, but it may not be so cut and dry to assume that it'll move to Lansing.

The CAW are crying about how they'll now move engine production to Tonawanda. Maybe they will, but it won't be in the near-term, and New York is still more toxic to this kind of stuff than even McGuinty's Ontario is.
