GM answers the rear-wheel drive full-size sedan question with the all-new Pontiac G8. The angled auto is based on a popular Australian sedan and will hit the U.S. in August with a choice of a 260 hp V-6 engine or 360 hp V-8.
That’s some serious power going to rear wheels, a set-up enthusiasts have been clamoring for ever since … well, forever, but especially since Chrysler introduced the 300C.
We’re most excited about, well, the V-8, but the interior looks to be of a high quality ,similar to the now-defunct GTO, also based on an Australian GM vehicle. More photos below and more information will be coming from the show floor later today.
