I expected a V6 in the high 300s.

They also have the mpg rating for the V6 at 20/30...that won't be high enough for CAFE standards. Pretty sure it has to be 35mpg by then.
I'm sure you meant the rumor is the '2012' will push near 330...But the article is for the 2014 cadillac ATS...which will hit dealers in 2013, so that could mean the 2013 or 2014 Camaros will get the new engines as well.

Who knows what will happen in 2016, assuming GM DOES wait that long for the next generation Camaro. As much as I hate to say it, if the weight is low enough they may just go for a powerful turbo'd 4 in the base car, skip the V6, and offer a V8......but man I think a 330+ HP V6 with gearing options in a lighter weight V6 would be so sweet!
