The modern LE8 is a small V6 engine built by Suzuki for General Motors. It is a 2.5 L (2491 cc, 152 cu in) engine with an 84 mm (3.3 in) bore and 75 mm (3.0 in) stroke. A 9.5:1 compression ratio and dual overhead cams pushing four valves per cylinder produce 165 hp (123 kW) and 162 ft·lbf (220 N·m).

The LE8 is used in the Chevrolet Tracker.

Historically, a version of the 454 cu in GM Big-Block engine for pickup trucks was also called the LE8.
