Since the new Pontiac G8, which is based off the European Holden Commodore SS-V, will be introduced tomorrow at the Chicago Auto Show, I thought it would be nice to add some wallpapers to the database. And for information purposes, the new G8 will be packed with a 6.0L V8 with 362 horsepowers. If you like it, the new G8 will arrive in showrooms by early 2008. Those 20-inch wheels look lovely as well. 😉
According to Ward’s Auto, the Pontiac Solstice ended the year of 2006 with a total of 19,710 sales in the United States, while the Mazda MX-5 only delivered 16,897, making the Solstice America’s most popular roadster. The most important to Mazda CEO, O’Sullivan, is the fact that the total number of sales were up by 4% from last year. Although O’Sullivan admits that they could have sold more MX-5 Miatas if they wanted to, apparently capacity was an issue. As well, the more popular retractable hardtop version did not enter the market until October, with many customers not receiving the model until November. O’Sullivan concluded that the MX-5 still remains the most popular roadster in America and that one year does not mark the success or failure of a vehicle.
Cheers and Gears has posted an image of a spy shot of the new Pontiac Torrent. By looking at the photo, we can see that it looks extremely similar to the Chevrolet Equinox, with minor changes to the body design. There will be added intakes on the lower fascia and a more aggressive grille. Details such as larger wheels and chromed exterior door handles are also present in the photo. Inside, it will remain much the same as the Pontiac lineup, which is boring bar none. As far as power is concerned, it would be a 3.6-liter V6 with an output of 275 horsepowers, which works in sync with the 5-speed automatic transmission.
