In addition to aerodynamic styling and that trademark, unmistakable Pontiac front grille, the 2008 G8 is offered in Base and GT trims, with engines ranging from a zippy and smooth 256 horsepower 3.6-liter V6 to a very capable 361 horsepower 6.0-liter V8 under the hood mated to either a 5-speed or a 6-speed electronically-controlled automatic transmission.
