My question is whether or not the MPG figures for Toyota's 3.5L V-6 are accurate. GM's 3.6L V-6 appears to match Honda's 3.0L V-6 on MPG. Toyota may be benefiting from Direct Injection. GM should develop DI across the board including 4 cylinders.

Toyota's 3.5 only has direct injection in the Lexus IS350 and GS350. GM has DI versions of the 2.0 Turbo, the 2.2 (in Europe) and will add the 3.6 DI next year. There are also 1.9, 2.2 and 3.2 L DI (all dual-CVVT) engines built for Alfa Romeo.
