As the thing stands, borrowing existing platform is the most likely outcome.

2019 Buick Firebird Engine Rumors
The upcoming 2019 Buick Firebird will bring a great performance as expected. The base engine is a 3.7-liter V6 and it can produce up to 305 HP and 280 lb-ft of torque. There is a rumor that will also get optional 5.0-liter V8 that makes 420 HP and 390 lb-ft of torque. While the V6 engine offers better fuel economy, the V8 is more recommendable, not only because it offers more power. In today’s world where manufacturers are opting for smaller V6 engines, the larger V8s are coming with the natural noise and no better mileage can replace that.
Moreover, carmakers around the globe are deploying a V6 with the noise systems, which is the case here. So, if you are a real fan of race and supercars, V8 is the only logical choice.

There is no official number about the price and the release date. However, we expect the General Motors to release new 2019 Buick Firebird at some point in 2019. We expect a price in the range from $45,000 to $55,000. Firebird will most likely arrive with even more performance-oriented trim levels that could see a whopping price increase.
