But using strong phrasing such as "has to be" implies a definite, or promise. Contrast that with "should be", which indicates that it is to be expected -but is more open ended and allows room for it...

Zeta isn't at the end of the Greek alphabet though. Its only the 6th letter (out of 24, I think). Omega is the last letter of the Greek alphabet, which is why the phrase "from alpha to omega" means...

I don't think commercial sales figure into CAFE, though I'm not positive on that. Maybe they still do for light vehicles (those under 8500 lb GVWR), in which case a 1/2 ton van would count towards...

99.999% sure that the body panels are all steel. The hood is aluminum, the front & rear fascias are plastic. But the rest of the car should be steel.

Its not just about having an engine sized space under the hood & between the fenders. To add the 3.6 to the Silverado you have to design the truck to accomodate a 2nd engine family. That adds cost,...
