GM still sells them as crate engines, and they have to keep making them for a while (or at least have the ability to do so) as replacement parts don't they?

Why do you assume GM is rounding to the nearest 50? If all they've given so far is numbers in 100s, my first thought would be that they're going to the nearest 100. Why 50, why not 25 or 10 or 5?...

This is for the CTS variant of that engine, should be very similar to the one going into the Camaro.

I've never seen that chart before. With an automatic, the V6 gets about 20% taller gearing than the turbo4. It might get interesting to see how the fuel economy of those two compare.
