The Pontiac Torrent was introduced in 2006, but the 2007 model still sees plenty of changes. The interior is slightly reworked, the sound systems now have an auxiliary input jack, and the upgraded CD player can handle MP3 files. An alarm system is now standard issue, and a new DVD entertainment system and navigation system are optional, as is remote start. A number of new wheels can be ordered to help personalize the Torrent. On the safety front, the Torrent trades its rear drums for rear discs, and StabiliTrak is now standard. Like most of the GM lineup, a tire pressure monitoring system is now included. A rollover sensor has been added to the optional side curtain air bags.
Roomy rear seat; available all-wheel drive; competitive pricing.
The 2007 Pontiac Torrent gains advantage over other crossover vehicles by offering more room per dollar. The spacious rear makes carrying five adults a real possibility, and the potential cargo carrying capacity is generous. The Torrent also received five stars in NHTSA's frontal and side crash tests.
