GXP G8 looks good. The rest I'm really not overly keen on. The Pontiac 2 grill look just doesn't suit and I'm wondering if Pontiac should look to move away from the twin front grill. I no its what they are known for but the G6 is massive and the G5 is small and would probably look better as a single grill.

It was built by Toyota. What do you expect?
Built by Toyota, we know. But who designed the 2009 Vibe...GM/Pontiac or Toyota? This is the real question as to its looks/design.

I do think this new vibe doesn't look as good as the original. This one does look kinda horrid.


I find it strange that the Torrent is still in the line up. It should be done away with by now & only Equinox's made til the run of this design is done & the new Nox & GMC Terrain come around. Will this be the last year for the never should have been small SUV in Pontiac's line up?? I surely hope so.:yup:

I am glad there isn't a G3 for '09. Hopefully GM/Pontiac will come to it's senses & not release that abomination into Pontiac's line up at all. Give it to Saturn instead til the next gen Corsa arrives!

Pontiacs line up is looking more sad by the year. The Vibe makes me want to puke as does the "will it ever go away China 3400" in the Torrent! The G5 loses it's GT 2.4 model, has no supercharged performance varient and makes due with the entry level 2.2 Ecotec despite being the "PERFORMANE" division of GM. The G6 coupe is a strange mixture of plain blah Toyota and Bugs Bunny thrown into a blandtastic forgettable package and the 15/22 MPG 3900 that is still offered in the convertible must have Toyota and Honda in stitches. The silly named G8 does offer some excitement in it's rear drive GXP models but with the same bland exterior rapper and the Solstice rolls on unchainged (maybe a good thing considering how GM has screwed up poor Pontiac these days).
