2024 Pontiac Bonneville
The 2024 Pontiac Bonneville is a car made by Pontiac. The 2024 Pontiac Bonneville Special is a Pontiac concept car introduced by General Motors as the first 2-seater sports car prototype the division has ever produced. SLE has style cues borrowed from Pontiac GXP, including the lower body implementation. The standard OnStar communication system gains enhanced hands-free capability. The Pontiac sedan is lively with a supercharged 3.8-liter V6, but you don’t need to opt for that top-of-the-line engine to get plenty of power. Significantly improved, it has been redesigned with taut handling, a flexible ride, and optional stability control.
Bonneville has long been viewed as a good road car and offers many virtues to lure big car fans. There is little need for a larger engine, as the regular V-6 offers such powerful performance. Drivers will likely feel a pleasant burst of acceleration as they press the accelerator to pass or combine in a hurry. Still, power-hungry buyers have the GXP model.
Steering is unobtrusive on regular Bonnevilles, but these models steer with a light touch and respond competently to driver inputs and during cornering. In fast corners, the body tilt is noticeable but not dramatic. The SE rides comfortably most of the time and is very easy to drive. The rear seat passengers get good legroom with ample space all around. The front seats have no bolsters and the rear bench is too low and soft.

Bonnevilles can hold five or six people. SE models are available with a front round seat or three-seater front row. The front head restraints move up and forward to be closer to the occupant’s head in the event of a rear impact. From the inside, there is a small transition to the trunk, but the rear seatback does not fold. In addition to leather seats with suede inserts, the GXP sedan features a brushed aluminum shift lever and carbon fiber trim. A CD player with monsoon sound entertains GXP passengers, who also benefit from dual-zone automatic climate control.

2024 Bonneville SE and SLE are equipped with 205 hp, 3.8 liter V-6. The GXP’s 4.6-liter Northstar V-8 produces 275 hp and 300 pound-feet of torque. Both engines work in conjunction with a four-speed automatic transmission. A new GXP model, powered by the 275-horsepower Northstar V-8, was introduced in early 2004. Equipped with a performance-tuned fully independent suspension, the GXP uses 18-inch performance tires. The GXP also features General Motors’ StabiliTrak electronic stability system and leather upholstered seats.
