They will need to get great MPG with the majority of the fleet because they will need extra MPG to offset the fuel guzzling ZL1 which will be the only V8 option available. In spite of the factthe ZL1 will be limited production and priced so only a select few will be able to get one, they will still need a lot of I4's to make up for it.
If that's the case and they quit making the V6 I'll keep mine forever as a collectors item. It will have to be worth something in the future.
