I honestly don't think the size has much if anything to do with cooling but more to do with looking more agressive. Which I feel it achieves. The deciples mentioned that one goal was for the V8 to look different from the V6. I don't want to start an argument but here's how I see it; the over all goal was to make the car look as much like the concept as possible and still make the V8 look different from the V6, so the LS and LT that will make up 60 or 70% of the cars sales kept the concept bumper and the SS got a meaner face.
