Who's talking smack? Ford and Dodge people?

I think it's awesome to see a V6 with that much power, especially since it gets 27mpg on the highway.

I wouldn't worry about the haters too much...

it's mainly just the die-hard, V8-or-nothing people who are doing it. and only the ignorant ones, at that.

as always, the V6 is gonna be the model that keeps profits in the green, just as it is with the mustangs (only this V6 packs a punch).

kudos to everybody getting a V6 & keeping our car alive!

Some people wouldn't get anything but a V8 in ANYTHING.
There are lots of V8's that don't have that much hp.

Get what makes you happy.

I have no problem with a V6. To each their own. I ordered a V8, but anyone who owns a 5th gen is alright in my books.

I hope this helps...My 1978 Z28 had 185 HP from the factory brand new...Different times...Now to today....300 plus hp from a V-6 is a great thing...Chevy needs those numbers to keep the V-8's coming down the assembly line...

Not me dude, I'm very impressed by the V6. But I gotta have my V8. Gotta have the rumble.

God I hate this. It's obviously not adequate enough for the v8 people and that's why there's concern.

If the V6 had 426 hp and the SS had say, 470, people would still say, "well the v6 is impressive but I gotta have that v8".

Yeah, I totally believe this. It's so true. "But but but, this is a V8! Much better. V6 is for pussies!":bangdesk:

I wish everybody would get the V6 around here... I personaly am one of "those people" that wont have anything but a V8 in anything but the 304hp V6 is a great choice for the 5th gen. The 4th gen on the other hand, the 6 was a joke. I think the only reason most people look down on the 6 is because 90% of the time the people who drive the CURRENT V6 sports cars are school girls.

Go drive a CTS with the same 304 HP. Only slightly heavier than a Camaro compared to a Traverse. The Camaro V6 is the uplevel V6 in the Cadillac. Plus RWD. Better comparison.

Or just take my word for it. The V6 is a blast. But not a V8.

I'm thinking about getting the V6 so that I can afford to buy other things...like food. I still don't know where I'm going to go but if I do get the sixxer I'll eventually work it into a 400 horsepower GT killer

Heck, I won't mind parking with some school girls (college aged, perverts) and talk about our V6's.

OK next time you come to Houston ... Here's a good comparison that has 40,000 miles. I'll let you drive my 2006 CTS VVT Sport / Black Raven.....I'm sold on the VVT engine...No issues...She will lay down black patches and still get 27 mpg on the highway...

i am going to be proud that My Camaro is "Just a little V6" I am ordering the 3.6 emblem from a Saturn Aura and putting it on the back of My Camaro.. that way when I leave one of those puny mustang V6's (or a older Mustang GT V8) in my dust they will know it was just a V6 camaro not a V8...

I like that. I have a feeling there are going to be TONS, and I mean TONS of kill/loss/race stories around the net, on you tube, etc.. stating they raced a New Camaro SS... when in fact is was a V6. The cars look Identical to anyone who isn't obsessed with them like we are. And all those teens out there driving in their hondas etc.. Are gonna be bragging cuz they only lost by "x" car lengths to a SS camaro..

So, I like your idea of putting on a 3.6 emblem.. show them what just beat them!

I agree. I was very near an AWD 3.6 DI CTS last summer, but decided to hold out for the Camaro. I took one on a long test drive, and was very impressed with the pull of the engine. Its a great feat of engineering!

I agree, I see more threads about people complaining about dissing the V6 than the actual disses. In my book, the V6 and V8 Camaros are brothers, and all other cars out there are nothing but distant relatives. We've got to stick together, rather then fight amongst ourselves. I for one love the V6 and am hoping to get a test drive in one someday!
