PONTIAC GOES REAR DRIVE WITH G8
PRICES TO START AT $27,595
DETROIT - Pontiac today confirmed pricing for its new rear-wheel drive G8 performance sedan will start at $27,595 when it hits the streets in early 2008. The V-8 powered G8 GT will be available for $29,995. Both prices include a $695 destination and freight charge.
“The G8 represents the next phase in Pontiac’s commitment to bring
seductively designed, high-performance vehicles to the showroom floor,” said Craig Bierley, Pontiac marketing
director. “Our dealers and customers have been anxiously waiting for this vehicle since we first showed it at the Chicago Auto Show in February,
so we’re really excited to get this
car on the street early next year.”
The G8 is powered by a 3.6-liter VVT V-6 engine and five-speed
automatic transmission and comes equipped with a number of
standard convenience and safety features, including StabiliTrak
electronic stability control, six airbags and OnStar. The G8 GT
ups the ante with a 6.0-liter V-8 mated to a six-speed
automatic transmission and additional standard equipment.
