In the year 2000, Chevrolet was manufacturing several V-8 engines. One of those engines was the 5.7-liter V8, which had been in Chevy's lineup since 1967. This engine had many uses in the 2000 model year. It was used in pickup trucks, vans and sports cars. The vans and pickup trucks used the same exact engines, while the two sports cars, the Camaro Z28 and Corvette, each had their own version of the engine.
In 2000, the C/K2500, C/K3500 and Express vans all used the same version of the 5.7-liter. This engine produced 255 horsepower (hp) at 4,600 revolutions-per-minute (rpm) and 330 foot-pounds of torque at 2,800 rpm. This engine had a bore--cylinder width--of 4 inches and a stroke--piston travel inside the cylinder--of 3.48 inches. It was a 16-valve (16V), overhead-valve (OHV), V8 configuration and had a 9.4:1 compression ratio. Its total displacement was 5,733 cubic centimeters or 349.849 cubic inches. Only the Express van was rated by the EPA for fuel economy, as it got 14 miles-per-gallon (mpg) in the city and 18 mpg on the highway.
The 2000 Camaro Z28 utilized a higher performance version of the 5.7-liter. This engine produced 305 hp at 5,200 rpm and 335 foot-pounds of torque at 4,000 rpm.
