The Pontiac G8 is a new front-engine, rear-wheel drive performance sedan that joins the Pontiac lineup for 2008. The Pontiac G8 has a 6 speed automatic transmission, 6.0-liter V8, 361-horsepower engine, and will be offered in G8 and GT versions. The 2008 Pontiac G8's interior is designed to deliver both comfort and convenience in driver-oriented performance-inspired atmosphere with satin and chrome trim, grained textures, white light on the primary instruments and signature Pontiac red lighting for the rest of the instrument cluster.
"What’s most right about the G8 are the essentials for a luxury sports sedan - a big, powerful V8, taught, sinewy suspension, perfectly centered weight distribution and of course, rear-wheel drive. But what’s even more intriguing about the G8 is something that no other V8 luxury sports sedan can currently claim - a sub $30,000 sticker price."
