When C&D does a min-SUV comparison test, the NOX will be listed near the bottom as the Malibu did. There's no excuse for old lame technology in a new car anymore. I won't mind importing an engine if it was a DOHC 24 valve VVT all alum high tech engine. Don't they make the same old cast iron OHV 3.4L just over the border in upstate NY?

A loaded CRV is 23K MSRP, and you can get a V6 3.3L DOHC 242 lbs of torque Highlander with 3rd row seating for 26K, the middle level trim price of a Nox, so why bother?
First off joey, mass-production OHC engines date back twenty years earlier than pushrods (to the 1930s). What was that about old lame technology??

The Equinox is class leading in every category BUT power, HP isn't the be-all end-all in this category. Take note, Toyotas and Hondas rarely lead the pack with big hp numbers, it's all in the details and execution and GM's done the same, they've hit one over the fence with the Equinox, I'm looking more and more forward to test driving and buying one.
