It actually sounds better IMO. Have both in the garage, and at least personally, I like more the refined sound of the HEMI vs the 'motorboat' one of the LSx engine. Inside the car they're similar, but outside, the HEMI wins easily. The Overland with Corsa sounded absolutely incredible. The best V8 exhaust I've heard, and I've heard many expensive ones. Sounds like a modern DOHC V8 rather than a pushrod. The Corvette 'pushrod' sound is unmistakable.
And yes, I hate when magazines compare vehicles costing tens of thousands of dollars more (and even double and more) rather than comparably priced. They might as well test a Ferrari against a Hyundai, and slam the Hyundai as crap. Geez.
