Because there are penalties if GM doesn't meet the Corporate Average Fuel Economy rules. Essentially this won't be much of an issue with the Z/28, since the number of units build will be tiny. GM builds a lot of Cruzes, etc., that offset the lower mileage, but the real issue are things like trucks and SUVs -- the huge number of units sold there make a big impact and are much harder to balance out...
