SO, getting back to what was supposed to be a discussion of new engine technology . . . . and the benefits of said technology . . .
Here are other interesting aspects . . .
Fuel economy should be better because
V-6 should have less internal friction than a V-8
Higher torque allows towing at lower RPMs resulting in less friction loss
Twin variable cams should allow optimal lifts and durations
6 speed auto gives you more options to optimize your RPM vs load
6 speed auto also designed to spend most of its time with the torque converter locked (versus previous designs) thereby increasing efficiency
There is potential for even more torque output because
Tuners always get more out of turbo applications
The discussed ratings were at 87 octane; 91 octane output will be higher
The VW turbo that I mentioned was interesting. It definitely was more powerful and responsive on 91 octane; very noticeable. Interestingly, it also got 2 mpg better fuel mileage on 91; therefore the power gains were "free" as the cost of the higher octane gas paid for itself with better fuel mileage.
