The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.6
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 Pontiac Grand Prix is roomy, comfortable, and quite enjoyable to drive, but it feels dated and is lacking in the details. The 2008 Dodge Charger sedan has plenty of practicality and character--and thirst, with the big HEMI engines.
