During a Fox Sports TV interview at the 24 Hours of Daytona, Nair confirmed that the 3.5L V6 will generate more power than the current 6.2L V8. The current V8 generates 411 horsepower and 434 lb-ft. of torque. We’ll have to wait a bit longer to see how much torque the V6 generates, but we do know that it will be mated to a new 10-speed automatic transmission.
