2008 Pontiac Torrent - Roomy and Vesatile

Industry News

The 2008 Pontiac Torrent is among the roomiest of the five-passenger SUVs. Like its corporate twin the Chevrolet Equinox, the Torrent is geared primarily toward buyers who desire rugged looks yet easy-to-drive manners. The Torrent is also vehicle that can comfortably carry a family of four and the accompanying cargo anywhere. Under the hood lies the standard 3.4-liter V6 engine offering decent performance and respectable fuel economy.

Still, the Torrent is a well-rounded crossover that's handsome, roomy, safe and in GXP guise, notably sporty. The 2008 Torrent is available in two trim levels with a choice of either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. Inside, the rear offers a 60/40 split bench seat that'll offer much needed cargo space. Gauges are chrome-ringed, and although hard plastic is abundant, the cabin is attractively styled and solidly constructed.
