Good review.

Now to wait on the reliability reviews...
You don't have to wait. The 2.4L Ecotec has been around for a few years now.

3436 lbs.... in a n/a 4 cylinder with only 128lb-ft of torque. That thing has to be a dog.
I wouldn't worry too much about torque. You've got 169 horsepower available when you want it. It's an interesting contrast between GM's comparable old-school engines. Even my 2.2L 2200 at 115HP sports 135lb/ft torque, and the 2.4L Z24 motor puts down 155lb/ft torque, but only 150hp. Hey, if you want a fast sedan, get the V6. I'm not going to complain, I think we could use some more "dogs".
