Chevy released some info that an RST performance package will be available for the Tahoe and Suburban. The performance package is essentially fitting a massive 6.2L V8 with a 10-speed automatic transmission into that bay and tunnel.

420hp and 460lb-ft of torque.

Think the Blazer could get one of those performance packages when it comes out?

That'd be nice wouldn't it? I can see Chevy doing something like that with a Blazer, but it'll be dependent on how large the Blazer will be and if a V8 would fit under the hood.

That's pretty much what it comes down to, and considering we're still unsure of the size because the word that I keep reading has changed, I'm not too sure if it'll work anymore.

Due to regulations that will come into play in future generations and the platform i'm assuming they're working with here, even a big V6 is possible only in our dreams. The way things are going a small to medium displacement V6 with turbos will be the way. Remember this is a new product that has to last another 8+ years!

Though highly unlikely, what about the engine that's going to appear in the new Chevy Corvette?
A version of it might end up in GM's bigger SUV's like the Tahoe and Suburban but the Blazer is a different story, its the least likely to get a V8. Unless you see valid reasons why a V8 might make it.

I don't really see a valid reason, just hopeful wishing even though we're most likely going to see a 3.6L v-6 as the top trim engine. The V-6 can produce 310 horsepower and 271 pound-feet of torque, which is pretty good for a car like the Blazer. Maybe a slight tune for a performance package.

A tune I can see happening since Chevy already does something similar for more performance but if they start it off right from the start, making it highly favorable to tune and modify, then aftermarket should be a great option for a lot of people.
