I don't see all v8's in danger. Large displacemnent, read 5+ liters, may be more likely on the chopping block.

If I had to put money on it, I can see most manufacturers moving to 3.XL-4.XL TT...

There's nothing inherently wrong with a stock v stock showing. Especially if you're an undecided buyer.

You can get the 3.5EB almost throughout the entire line up. Even down to a single cab XL, provided you get the 8' bed.

You can't do a single cab, 5.5' or 6.5' bed, 3.5EB, which I believe is the...

Why launch with such a "soft" entry level engine?

Lexus NX's 235/258
Which is bottom of the pack. And near the...

Well the 96-98 Cobra and subsequent 99-04 GT's had almost identical 0-60 and 1/4 times.

The 07-10 GT500 were a tick slower 0-60 and 1/4 than the 11 GT's.

So it's not without precedent.

Isn't bringing Corvette into this a bit belittling to Camaro? Sort of a "my big brother can beat you up!" ideology. Camaro is a great performer and more than capable of fighting its own battles.
