"The car that delivers driving excitement with room for everyday life boosts the excitement to a new level in this GXP with:"

Supercharged 3.4-liter 275 hp V-6
Hydra-Matic 4T65-E automatic transmission with floor-mounted shifter
Performance-tuned suspension components
GXP specific 18-inch forged aluminum wheels



That would be a direct quote from the web site.

Everything Ford makes with an Eaton strapped to it has an intercooler, since the 89 Supercoupe.

Darn it, it looks like the C6 will come out first, and eventually the GXP version will come out. It will us a 3.5 liter engine though, pretty decent. In other news, I was on the Pontiac website, and it looks like you can buy a supercharger already for the Vibe. Very weird considering its a Toyota engine.

The pontiac Vibe is the same car as the toyota Matrix. The matrix is based on the toyota corrola. Therefore i assume the engine is the same as the corrola (or tweaked).

My 88 nova was a corolla in disguise, had a toyota engine, but it sounded like an american engine. It was almost throaty! Had a nice snarl to it.
