The 2009 Pontiac G8 straddles the line between sophisticated sport sedan and buff muscle car, offering handling that's better than many rivals but with firm yet comfortable touring comfort. Compared with pricier European sport sedans, it is an especially strong value.
The 2009 Pontiac G8 enters its second year of production with a longer list of standard equipment. All G8s now include Bluetooth, XM satellite radio, and traction control.
The Pontiac G8 sport sedan comes in two models for 2009: the G8 and G8 GT. The G8 comes with a 256-horsepower, 3.6L V6 with variable valve timing, while the G8 GT steps up to a 6.0L V8 making 361 horsepower and 385 lb-ft of torque. The V6 is paired with a five-speed automatic transmission and the V8 is mated to a six-speed automatic with manual shift mode. A six-speed manual is reportedly a possible mid-year addition. The V8 uses the Active Fuel Management system, which saves fuel while coasting or cruising by temporarily shutting off half of the cylinders.
