27 "for sure" should be the mpg for the V6 on the highway. That is what GM is saying,

^ I remember them going for 19/27, which makes sense looking at CTS's mpg, but it looks like it will be more around 18/27. We will see.....

The new testing numbers are too conservative. They lowered just about everything. Some of the new MPG numbers are just wrong (on the govts site).

i just looked up my truck, and the numbers are way low. it showed 13/16 and even before modifications (@ 126k mi) i was getting about 15/18. now (even @ 143k) i'm getting about 16-17/21

i have no doubts that if driven right and all variables kept in check, the V6 camaro could get 19/27 or 18/26

Driving with a light foot, I can get 17mpg city with my LT1 V8 automatic. Hope the V6 can do better than 1 more mpg than that.

Yep, a car's weight is a big factor in its fuel consumption rather than the engine size.

If you drive in dense city conditions and flog it constantly, the extra weight will make a significant difference. If you drive in more normal conditions and do some minor anticipative driving (not accelerating all the way up to the red light, not braking just because of a curve, etc) then a few hundred pounds won't make much difference.

That site is run by the federal EPA. CAFE is from the State Of California. Different jerks.

Not quite. The LT1 makes much of its torque in the low end with the peak occuring around 2400 rpm. The V6 has to rev a little higher to start making the higher numbers, and its peak torque isn't as high as the peak torque on the LT1.

im well aware of the differences, hence why I said "about the same"
