2005 Pontiac Vibe

2005 Pontiac Vibe

Enlarge Photo
For 2005, Pontiac's shapely crossover wagon sports a redesigned front fascia and grille that resembles the upcoming 2006 Solstice roadster. Newly available features include leather seating, the StabiliTrak stability control system and side-curtain air bags. Available in both front- and all-wheel-drive versions, the Vibe shares platforms and powertrains with the Toyota Matrix, including its standard 130-horsepower 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine, and a choice of either a five-speed manual transmission or a four-speed automatic. The top GT model is only available with front-wheel drive, but comes with a 180-horsepower version of the 1.8-liter engine and a six-speed manual transmission. It also includes upgraded brakes and alloy wheels. A dealer-installed supercharger for the top engine adds about 35 percent more horsepower and torque.
