With the SV6, those who need special assistance for entering and exiting the vehicle can simply look to their Pontiac dealership for assistance. General Motors' remarkable Sit-N-Lift power seat is a dealer-installed option on the SV6, providing customers with a one-stop upfitting experience.

The Sit-N-Lift power seat is for people on the go who transport passengers needing easier access to enter or exit a vehicle. Operated by a hand-held remote control, this unique seat base provides convenient access to the right-hand second-row seat.

"The Sit-N-Lift seat adds a new level of convenience and functionality for people who need this type of flexibility," said Jim Kornas, director of mobility product development for GM Sales, Service and Marketing.

With a push of the remote control button, the Sit-N-Lift power bucket seat rotates, then extends out of the vehicle and lowers down to approximately 17 inches seat bottom to ground. The motion of the seat can be stopped at any height to facilitate seating from a standing position or transfer from a wheelchair. Sit-N-Lift also includes a slide-out footrest.

The Sit-N-Lift seat is mounted in the original seat attachments and is installed in place of the second-row passenger seat. Available as a regular production accessory and as an accessory kit through GM Parts Operation, Sit-N-Lift can be installed by the dealer and requires no permanent vehicle modifications.

The new Sit-N-Lift seat base installed on a new GM vehicle at the time of delivery will be covered under the three-year/36,000-mile GM New Vehicle Limited Bumper-to-Bumper Warranty. GM Parts and GMC Accessories permanently installed by a GM dealer after vehicle purchase will be covered for the balance of the new vehicle warranty, but in any event no less than 12 months or 12,000 miles.


In addition to its long list of standard and available features, the new SV6 is supported by GM with a complementing range of Pontiac Accessories available through Pontiac dealerships.

"Designed to suit the lifestyle interests of SV6 owners, the accessories are tailor-made for the vehicle," said Nancy Philippart, executive director - GM Accessories. "All accessories are designed and manufactured to the same standards as the SV6's factory-installed components."

From additional storage options to vehicle protection items, the SV6's comprehensive list of accessories includes:

Overhead storage and accessory system: The SV6 has room for up to three storage systems, depending on which option group is ordered. Each storage system is about 12 inches wide and about 9 inches deep, with a door that flips open and swings down, allowing customers to choose a variety of specifically designed inserts for carrying accessories. The inserts are designed to carry CDs or DVDs, two pairs of sunglasses, most cell phones, a personal digital assistant organizer, a first-aid kit, tissues, or two "Snake Light" flashlights. All inserts are interchangeable and can be easily added to the accessory system. The inserts and storage systems can be ordered through GM dealerships.

Utility bars: The bars attach to the factory-installed roof rails, providing a base mount for bicycle, ski, hard or soft cargo, kayak, canoe and other rooftop carriers.

Second row utility box: For use with second-row with bucket seats only, the heavy-duty plastic box features four molded cupholders, a divider tray and soft-sided cooler. The box also contains a removable tray for storage of DVDs, CDs and miscellaneous items.

Side window weather deflectors: Letting in fresh air, while keeping out rain or snow, the contoured deflectors also are tinted to help reduce sunlight glare.

Rear bumper protector: A molded composite black strip, with a grained surface, that fits the top of the rear bumper to help protect it when sliding items in or out of the rear of the vehicle. The textured surface also provides secure footing when stepping on the bumper.

Molded hood protector: Tailored to the SV6's hood contours, the protector helps deflect road debris and insects.

Security system: A custom-designed security system that works in tandem with the SV6's electrical system.

All-weather floor mats: Deep, vinyl floor mats collect rain, snow and dirt to protect the vehicle's carpet. Special nibs on the bottom hold the mats in place.

Splash guards: Rubber-reinforced guards protect the vehicle from gravel, mud and road salt. Tough construction means they won't chip, crack or tear.

Trailering packages: A wide variety of hitch packages are available to accommodate numerous trailering needs.

Highway emergency kit: Helpful package includes a first-aid kit, PVC tape, cotton cloth, fuse kit, bungee cord, cotton gloves, flashlight, rain poncho, screwdriver, booster cables, pliers and a "Need Help" banner.

GM accessories permanently installed on a new GM vehicle at the time of delivery will be covered under the GM New Vehicle Limited Bumper-to-Bumper Warranty. GM accessories permanently installed by a GM dealer after vehicle purchase are covered for the balance of the new vehicle warranty, and no less than 12 months or 12,000 miles.
