I agree with Justin. The 60* V6s get better mileage on the highway than many 4cyls, and even the city mpg isn't that bad. Plus, the 3500 makes about 220hp, so these cars are fairly quick.

According to Wiki (I know, not a great source), the LZ4 3500 had 211hp (224 after 07). The LX9 (malibu, g6) ranged from 196-201hp. The info there seems to be a little off.. it lists two different 3500s for the 06-11 impala.. the LZ4 and the LZE.. so I'm not sure which is correct, if either are.
