2008 Pontiac Ratings, Reviews and Awards

Pontiac decided that it was in need of a reboot in 2008. In an attempt to bolster its image in the US market, the company introduced the G8, a sport sedan built in Australia. The G8 marked Pontiac's re-entry into the rear-wheel drive sedan market. It was available in a standard-powered model with a V6 engine and in a sportier, GT model with a V8 engine. 2008 also marked the end of the line for the Pontiac Grand Prix, which was available in a GXP and bas trim and was ultimately replaced by the G8. 2008 also meant a slight makeover for Pontiac's mid-size sedan option, the G6, which began offering standard side-airbags, OnStar controls, anti-lock brakes, and traction control. The G6 offered sporty performance but some would argue that it wasn't sporty enough and that shifting was slow, especially in models with automatic transmission.
