Features

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."

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

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."
