The Pontiac G8 promises to straddle the line between sophisticated sport sedan and buff muscle car for 2008, offering handling that's better than many rivals but with firm yet comfortable touring comfort. Compared with pricier European sport sedans, it looks to be an especially strong value.
The 2008 Pontiac G8 is a completely new, sporty rear-wheel-drive sedan that replaces the Grand Prix--and the now-discontinued GTO--in Pontiac's lineup.
The new 2008 Pontiac G8 sport sedan will come in two models, G8 and G8 GT. The G8 comes with a 256-horsepower, 3.6L V6 with variable valve timing, and the G8 GT steps up to a 6.0L V8 making 361 horsepower and 385 lb-ft of torque. The V6 comes with a five-speed automatic transmission and the V8 gets a six-speed automatic with manual shift mode. A six-speed manual will be available late in the model year. The V8 uses the Active Fuel Management system, which saves fuel while coasting or cruising by temporarily shutting off half of the cylinders.
