2011 Radiator Capacity

Does anybody happen to know roughly how much coolant the OEM radiator in a 2011 GT holds? I drained the radiator but I'm somewhat surprised how little coolant appeared to come out. I'm estimating about a half gallon drained out. I've removed the cap from the reservoir and the drain plug is completely removed at this point. I'm pretty sure it's empty but I'd like to avoid a messy surprise when I lift the radiator out of the car. How about any drain plugs on the block? If I'm changing radiators I might as well try to replace as much coolant as I can.

This may help. It's more about the refill but it has fluid amounts.

Figures that I can't view it at work. I'll check it out when I get home tonight.

Thanks. I know what the system capacity is and have enough coolant on hand to refill a completely empty system but I'm mostly concerned about how much is in the radiator itself.

Thanks. There might be about a gallon in the pan. I'm hoping I can get back out to the shop today to finish the job and am going to see if I can get more coolant out of the block by following the link baggyp posted.
