Be warned: It ain't a happy review.

By virtue of its middling 256-hp 3.6-liter V6, relaxed suspension tune, overall size and sub-$30K price tag, it is likely to be cross-shopped not just with the Dodge Charger V6 but also with a raft of midsize cars including high-end versions of the Honda Accord and Nissan Altima. Just up the ladder one rung is the Acura TL and Nissan Maxima SV.
We're missing the point, you say? The Accord and Altima are gussied-up, everyday front-drive appliances, you say? True, but they're also more powerful and quicker than the relatively heavy G8 V6 sedan. Despite a more advantageous weight distribution and rear-wheel drive, the hefty 3,945-pound G8 can muster only a 7.6-second sprint to 60 mph. The 270-hp Altima 3.5 can crank out runs a full second quicker. Even the less overtly sporty 268-hp Accord EX V6 (with a five-speed automatic) has the G8 beat by half a second. And just in case you needed reminding, the only slightly more expensive G8 GT sprints to 60 mph in a smokin' 5.4 seconds.
Like they said, it would be nice if the G8's V6 powertrain was the same as the Camaro
