CamroNews learned today that Chevrolet’s Super Transmission 8L90 could possibly make into the future 6th Gen Camaro. The New eight-speed automatic, the 8L90, is a brilliant piece of work. Not only can it shift faster than Porsche’s PDK dual-clutch transmission, but also found it to be great for the street and track when driving a 2015 Chevrolet Corvette fitted with it. It should come as no surprise then that GM has many more applications planned for the 8L90.
The transmission has already been confirmed for the automaker’s large pickups, including the 2015 Cadillac Escalade, and soon a lower-torque version will be rolled out. According to other automotive sources, this lower-torque version will be fitted to a number of GM passenger vehicles such as the Cadillac ATS and CTS and the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro. We will have to wait and find out this coming year, until then enjoy the images of the new 8 speed Transmission.
