Default Chevrolet unveils new 10.35-litre V8 crate engine with 1,004 BHP & 1,188 Nm

Chevrolet has unveiled its biggest and most powerful crate engine ever built. Called the ZZ632/1000, the crate engine comes in the form of a massive big-block V8, based on the same unit which powers the COPO Camaro.

However, the V8 crate engine has a larger displacement of 10.35-litre. The naturally-aspirated engine is said to produce 1,004 BHP @ 6,600 rpm and 1,188 Nm @ 5,600 rpm, when running on 93-octane petrol.

The engine is made using a cast-iron block. The connecting rods and the crankshaft is made using forged steel, combined with forged aluminium pistons, heads, port fuel injection and a CNC-machined intake manifold.

The new ZZ632/1000 crate engine will debut at the upcoming SEMA 2021 show in November. Deliveries of the same will begin sometime early next year. Chevrolet is yet to announce the pricing for the crate engine.

With the factors such as :

- Companies and governments moving towards green revolution.
- Powerful and high range electric cars.
- Ever increasing fuel prices.

This hardly makes any sense.

Yes, as petrol head I would definitely desire one, but after that I would still be jealous of a powerful Tesla which would leave me in "silence" at the red light.

Fitting this in a Jonga, together with a 10-speed auto would make a lot of sense.

Erm... There are customers for it. GM is selling what the customers want. Let the petrolheads enjoy the last days ( definitely 5+ years)

Natural aspiration for the win! I read about Toyota too pondering over large displacement NA engines being clean and efficient enough without having to turbo them.

Expect dodge/chrysler to one up these torque and BHP figures. American muscle sound so much more muscular now.

Exiting some European and Australian markets (Opel, Vauxhall, Holden) and also emerging markets like India after receiving the sales flak for some crap Chinese machines, they have now turned to breaking records with huge, never heard of gasoline engines. And this is during the sunset years of fossil fuel usage.

What next ? Queuing for another financing from TARP (Troubled Assets Relief Program) or in other words seeking a bailout package at Washington DC, repeating the 2008 fiasco?

Thats some very high specific output for a Naturally Aspirated relatively low-revving motor. Something doesnt sound right.

HP = (Torque x RPM)/5252.

American V8 are already known to be torque monsters and this new Chevy crate motor is 10.35 Litres of naturally aspirated all american muscle so 1000+ hp is very much possible.

On a side note I am very excited about Electric Crate motors.

The thought of being able to buy a 350hp "off the shelf" Electric motor that has a warranty to shove into a project car makes my heart sing.

Dominic Toretto is definitely plonking this baby in his charger.

Jokes aside, this might probably be the one of the last big displacement IC engines.
