2006 Pontiac Torrent Overview

Since Pontiac is GM's performance division, with an emphasis on sportiness and driving excitement, it's surprising that it took so long for them to release an SUV. The 2006 Pontiac Torrent is just that, a compact SUV based on a car platform, offering all the convenient storage and heft of an SUV, with the lighter weight and handling of a car.
The 2006 Torrent debuts in either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive formats. Both are powered by a 3.4-liter, 185-hp V6 and 5-speed automatic and come equipped with a sports-tuned suspension. Sitting on 16-inch tires, the Torrent is similar to the Chevy Equinox, with just a few exterior Pontiac stylistic touches to differentiate the two. Being a compact SUV, it only offers two rows of seats for five passengers. The second row can move forward or back to adjust for legroom or cargo space. The seats also fold down, along with the front passenger seat, allowing you to fit skis or oversized pieces of wood.

ABS brakes, dual front airbags, air conditioning, remote entry, fog lights, power windows, and power outlets in the tailgate are all standard in the 2006 Torrent. Packages add a moonroof, power seats, leather upholstery, and OnStar. A Cargo Storage package adds in-floor and in-wheel compartments, tie-downs, a shelf, and a pull-out table.
Owners of the 2007 Torrent love its roominess and comfortable seats. Acceleration is responsive and the overall driving experience fun and peppy. Handling is easy and smooth. Drawbacks include poor gas mileage, several blind spots, poor location of cupholders, and a cheap-looking interior.
