Default Will I get in trouble for saying this?

The writer must have been on our rivalry site from the past in the 90* forum for saying this:

The GXP gets a little more impressive once you fire up the ignition. GM did a nice job of making a big, front-wheel-drive sedan into a pretty good driver. The 4.6-liter, 32-valve Northstar engine has always been a nice motor, and it'* a huge upgrade over the 3.5-liter V-6 found in the Bonneville SE and SLE. Its 275 horsepower - 70 more than the Bonneville SE - and 300 pound-feet of torque is plenty of fun in the passing lane. Even though it has a four-speed automatic transmission, power transfers pretty smoothly thanks to the electronic transaxle. Pontiac boasts that the GXP can hit 60 miles per hour in a respectable 6.8 seconds. I had no trouble blowing by other cars on the California freeway. And braking with those big 14-inch front rotors was sharp and precise

Hehe sounds like he doesn't overly know his Bonneville'*!
Yeah I was thinking the same thing, the 3.5 was used in the Auroras.
