2006 Pontiac Montana SV6 Trims

4dr Minivan

Avg. Price: $7,207

Pared down to only two trim levels this year, the 2006 Pontiac Montana SV6 minivan comes in either front or all-wheel drive. The 2006 Montana SV6 front-wheel drive comes with a 3.5-liter, 201-hp V6 engine with only a 4-speed automatic. Three rows of seats fit 7 passengers, accessed by manual dual sliding doors. Power doors are optional. ABS brakes, traction and stability control, dual front-side airbags, and 17-inch all season tires are standard. Side impact bags for the rear rows are a new option this year in the 2006 Montana SV6.

The SUV-like minivan is fully equipped for family comfort, with power features, OnStar, cruise control, keyless entry, a DVD player, CD with MP3 compatibility, and rear headphone jacks and audio controls. Second row seats recline and both rear rows split-fold for maximum storage versatility of up to 137 cubic feet. A Sport Package is available on the front-wheel drive SV6, upgrading to the 3.9-liter, 240 V6 engine. Other options include heated leather seats, power front seats, second row captain's chairs, parking sensors, rear air conditioning, remote start, satellite radio, a rear spoiler, PhatNoise (which stores thousands of songs and videos), and a sport suspension. More storage options are also available with an overhead console. Owner love the roominess and style of the 2006 Montana SV6, but say access to the third row is difficult and it could use more power.

4dr Minivan AWD

Avg. Price: $8,113

The 2006 Pontiac Montana SV6 AWD is an SUV-like minivan featuring Versatrak all-wheel drive. Because of the extra weight, the horsepower is downgraded to 196-hp (opposed to 201 in the FWD version) even with the same 3.5-liter, V6 engine. This is mated to a 4-speed automatic. The 2006 Montana SV6 AWD features a self-leveling suspension and a rear limited slip differential as well. ABS brakes, dual front airbags, and 17-inch tires are standard. The AWD Montana SV6 also comes with a tire inflator kit. Side impact airbags for all rows are a new option this year.

Standard features include OnStar, cruise control, full power features, keyless entry, a DVD player, CD with MP3 playback, rear audio controls and jacks, an entertainment remote, and manual dual sliding doors. A roof rack adds storage on top, and both second and third row seats fold down. The second row also reclines. Gas mileage sits around 17/23 mpg. New options for the 2006 Montana SV6 AWD are remote start and a security system. You can also add a lowered floor and sit-and-lift seating for easier second row access. Power seats, leather, power sliding doors, rear air conditioning, PhatNoise media storage, a trip computer, parking sensors, heated seats, and an overhead console are also available. The Sport Package with the 3.9 V6 is not offered with the AWD Montana SV6. Third row access and fuel economy are negatives, while the roominess, power, and standard DVD are positives with owners.
