2021 Pontiac G8 Interior
Modern Pontiac interiors were hardly known for their design or quality, but the interior of the 2009 Pontiac G8 is undoubtedly a breakthrough. The central pile is pleasing to the eye and while many surfaces are hard to touch, they feel generally solidly built. The passenger room is suitable for a large car, there are generous accommodations back and forth. The back seats don’t bend, but skiing helps a bit. The wide load offers a load capacity of 17.5 cubic feet. On the downside, the G8 doesn’t have a navigation system, despite its navigation-sized LCD data display. The lack of a redline indicator for the tachometer is also unfortunate. In summary, there is still room for improvement, but the interior of the G8 is far superior to Pontiak’s previous offerings.
Pontiac G8 2021 Engine
The base of the Pontiac G8 is powered by a 3.6-liter V6, which produces 256 horsepower and 248 pound-feet of torque. It sends its power to the rear wheels via a five-speed automatic transmission with manual shift control. The GT 6.0-liter V8 has 361 horsepower and is mated to a six-speed automatic, with 385 pound-feet of torque. The GXP’s 6.2-liter V8 wheel produces 402 horsepower and 402 lbs, and uses the GT’s six-speed automatic or six-speed gearbox.
In road tests, the G8 GT climbed to 60 mph in 5.7 seconds and reached a quarter mile bubble in 13.7 seconds. The Pontiac GXP promises to move faster, expecting the Pontiac GT to scrape at least half a second out of a 0-60 sprint. V6-powered base models should take about 7 seconds. Due to the cylinder shut-off feature, the fuel economy of the GT V8 is close to that of the V6. The EPA gives the V6 a 17 mpg city / 25 mpg highway rating and the V8 a 15/24 mpg rating. The GXP will probably have slightly less efficiency than the GT.
