2009 Pontiac G8 GXP

GM Media Release
9 June 2008

With the excellent handling traits of rear-wheel drive, the refined ride attributes of a four-wheel independent suspension and the exhilaration of available V8 engine power, the Pontiac G8 lineup delivers the type of crisp driving experience typically found in more expensive performance sedans.

Introduced for the ’08 model year, the G8 lineup’s performance range expands in 2009 with the track-tuned GXP model. Motivated by a 6.2 litre LS3 V8 that makes more than 400 horsepower (300 kW) and imbued with razor-sharp ride and handling traits, the GXP is the ultimate expression of Pontiac style and performance.

“The addition of the G8 GXP to the lineup proves Pontiac has never been more serious about the business of performance,” said Susan Docherty, vice president of Buick-Pontiac-GMC. “More than just raw power, the GXP delivers the sophisticated yet exciting driving experience that enthusiasts expect in a car costing far more.”

As the G8 joined Pontiac’s lineup midway through the ’08 model year, changes across the lineup are few but bring more standard technology to the table. They include XM Satellite Radio and Bluetooth capability on all models. Available later in the model year, Bluetooth capability is integrated into the G8’s standard OnStar system, enabling hands-free phone calls for safer, more convenient connections.

Additionally, four new colours are added to the G8’s exterior palette: Maverick Silver Metallic, Sport Red Metallic, Stryker Blue Metallic and Pacific Slate Metallic.
