    When will GM publish specs? Photos are fine, particulars are better.

    I'll have to check with the Manglers (Managers) about that one.

    Hmmm... The E-Assist is fantastic and much quieter than the 2011 4 banger. It seems less brash, the pick up is much better and of course the fuel economy has been fantastic in my short drives. So it's great for what it does. But I am a power guy. The new V6 wins my vote hands down.

    BAH! The E-Assist is gone. Not sure if it's sold or an employee took it.

    Some things to note before I get pics.

    • You no longer need the Harmon Kardon sound system to have USB. It is standard on the Premium 1. Very good move.
    • Full color driver info center on all models.
    • I tried this on a few 2011's and could not get it to work and also tried on my 2011 CXS, so I assume it is new for 2012, although I could be wrong. You do not need to put your foot on the brake to engage the electronic parking brake. Just pull up. You still need to put your foot on the brake to disengage the electronic parking brake.
    • The rear of the vehicle looks great without the extra badges. I personally did not think it would make a big difference but it does.
    • Ski pass to the trunk is gone on all models. With or without the E-Assist battery.
    • Window sticker does not denote which engine in the options column. The engine is now only noted in the top right of the sticker. Standard equipment list will show E-Assist information. If the vehicle is a V6, you'll have to look in the top right of the sticker next to the model designation.

    I'm surprised the E-Assist lasted on your lot as long as it did. Wait until people find out you have them. What a great car that gets 37 mph.

    Can you tell the difference with the extra 20hp on the V6 models?

    Yes. But only when driven back to back. NO torque steer either. I mean none no matter how hard you hit the throttle. It's great.
