The 2008 Pontiac Torrent is available in two different flavors: the base-model Torrent and the GXP. A plethora of options is available for each, or you can order the Torrent with one of Pontiac's upgrade packages.

According to Edmunds, "the Pontiac Torrent is a well-equipped midsize crossover SUV available in either front-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive configurations." Kelley Blue Book notes "buyers who wish to customize their Pontiac Torrents can obtain a fair number of accessories in addition to factory-installed options."

According to ConsumerGuide, the following comfort and convenience features are standard: air conditioning, an interior air filter, OnStar, a tilt steering wheel, cruise control, a height-adjustable driver seat, a fold-flat passenger seat, an AM/FM/CD/MP3 player, a digital-media player connection, automatic headlights, and remote keyless entry, as well as power mirrors, windows, and door locks. Upgrading to the Torrent GXP gets the larger engine and sport-tuned suspension, 18-inch alloy wheels, privacy glass, remote vehicle starting, steering wheel audio controls, a sports instrument panel, front sport seats with multilevel heating, and a powered driver seat.

Options include side curtain airbags, leather-trimmed seats, DVD navigation, a moonroof, XM Satellite Radio, and a premium sound system, says Kelley Blue Book, or "GM's accessory division can supply 19 extra items to suit owners who crave a custom look."

Conclusion

The 2008 Pontiac Torrent sports a long list of standard features, missing only a handful of high-tech items, such as Bluetooth.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
