Official V6 MPG confirmed at 29 MPG hwy!

GM VP Troy Clark was just on CNBC and confirmed the V6 Camaro's official EPA highway to be 29 MPG!

Keep in mind, this new rating system is much more stringent than the old rating scale, so it's very possible if driven right the V6 could get over 30 mpg on the highway!

Don't fret guys, GM certified the hp rating at 304 already. Nothing's changed with that and nothing will.

That is great. My credit union gives an additional break on interest rates for cars getting 29 or higher, so that equates to money!!!

This will help on the CAFE requirement. Chevy is marketing the Camaro as the sports car for the 21st century based on the V6 mpg numbers. That is where they see the biggest segment of the orders coming from. It gives a good PR image too.
