Chevy Officially Discontinues the LS7

Among Chevrolet’s vast lineup of LS-badged small-block V-8 engines, one stands out as the most special: the LS7. Displacing an incredible seven liters (427 cubic inches), the 505-hp motor made a name for itself in the stunning C6-generation Corvette Z06 before appearing in the incredible Camaro Z/28. Though both of those cars have long since ended production, the LS7 and its cheaper, wet-sump variant, the LS427/570, have since been offered as crate engines direct from Chevrolet. Until now, that is.

On Friday, a keen-eyed Reddit user spotted that both the LS7 and the LS427/570 have recently been marked as discontinued on Chevrolet’s performance website. A Chevrolet spokesperson confirmed the news to Road & Track via email, telling us the automaker plans to fulfill all current orders until its inventory of the engines has been depleted.
