Sure dude you have a great point. A lot if uninformed people out there don't know how well GM's L36/L67 do in the MPG department. Another common misconception is weight, size, and maintenance costs - the OHV are better in both area's when compared to OHC.Originally posted by yoblues@Jun 21 2004, 05:52 PM
I have no idea what your talking about. My point was, if you asked the average import car buyer what gets better mileage? A Volvo 4 cilinder turbo in a compact car with 160hp or a 3.8 supercharged 240 hp V-6 in a large midsize car, the import buyer says, the Volvo of course. NOOOOOOOOOO! That GM V-6 gets the same mileage. This is a very good GM marketing point. You can have a larger car (better safety) with far more room and a far more powerfull engine for about the same price that gets the same gas mileage. This should be a feature of all GM marketing of this engine. I do not remember seeing any GM commercials or adds that makes this comparison. A tree hugging friend of mine owns a Volvo S-40 and when I told him the 04 SS Impala gets the same mileage, he told me I was full of bleep. HELLO GM, it's MARKETING MARKETING MARKETING.
