Out with the old, in with the new. The Grand Prix nameplate will continue along side the G8 at least until 2008. This new Pontiac performance sedan will be based on GM's Global RWD platform used by the Holden Commodore, a RWD full-size sedan sold in Australia. The new G8 will come with the choice between a 261 hp 3.6L V6 (5-speed automatic transmission) or the powerful 362 hp 6.0 L V8 mated to a six-speed manual or automatic transmission. The G8 will be a proper American family car that will finally compete with the ever popular Chrysler LX cars.  The G8 will be built in Australia and is expected in showrooms by early 2008.
