I think this sound will impress a lot of the import fans!

Great video, thanks!

For those who say it doesn't sound like a V8, well it isn't supposed to.

Why try and make something that it isn't?

I for one have had GM vehicles with the 3800 V6, 3100 V6, and now my Trailblazer with the 4.2 I6. Having owned several LT1 cars, LS1, and Small Bloc V8 vehicles the 6 cylinders just didn't put out enough noise for me. I had put exhaust on all of them, and the sounds they made just don't sound good for a even a V6, nothing like 350z, G35 or BMW 6 cylinders sound like, and those IMO are the only good sounding 6 cylinders as they are so smooth sounding. My cars always sounded deep but they were neither V8 or sporty V6 sounding. And no offense to anyone, but the 4300 V6 in the blazers, s-10's etc.. sounds horrible with exhaust, it's just not a refined sound at all, but that is just my opinion. With my Trailblazer having an Inline 6 the sound is better than most GM 6 cylinders I have owned, but it still isn't great by ANY means.

With this 3.6 DI V6, GM has designed an amazing motor, and finally one that can sound good as well. So once again I think the sound of the V6 camaro is great for a V6.

Still will be getting a SS, as I love nothing more than the sound of a V8, but I gotta give props and say that this is a great SOUNDING 6 cylinder!!!

Sounds like a 350Z, which is my favorite sounding V6, so I love it. Kinda wish it was a little deeper when revved (almost sounds like an older Pontiac Grand Prix with a 3800 Series V6, which still sounds great, so all is good), but when it's pulling it sound almost exactly like a 350Z/G35...

Sounds good. I think that sound will appeal to people who like other high performance V6 powered cars like the G35 and BMW 3 series. While the SS appeals to the traditional American muscle car enthusiasts, the V6 really will win over the converts.

It did sound a bit deeper in person. Seeing it come down the street was amazing....Finally out of all these auto shows.

Here are a few more pics.

I have some more videos of the interior and exterior but have not had time to upload them.

With my own budget crisis underway, I wouldn't feel bad about getting one of those for a couple of years. That sounds remarkable and looks fast at the end. GM did great work with this one.

I told my friend today that I don't care any more. The V6 is well within my interests.

Sounds good for a V6, but it's still a V6...

I believe it's not the cubes, but the firing order that makes a Chevy 8 sound better than a Ford, (a blind man can hear the difference) AND unless they were able to duplicate that, this will never sound like an 8.

BUT it did sound very good and no Honda ever sounded like that.

Even thought I want the V8, the V6 will be reasonable for a performance enthusiast as long as the aftermarket is good to us, which I'm confident is the case. As long as we have some holdover goodies to install, we can wait for a V8 in a couple more years. My primary goal is to hold out as long as possible for the V8, but my dying Subaru may make that decision for me. :seesaw:

Increadible! I'm actually VERY impressed with the sound. And, that sounded like a pretty quick take off there...sounded like it got up in the RPM's rather quickly. I betcha that V6 is pretty quick and nimble!
