Pontiac made only minor updates to the Torrent base trim for 2008. The SUV/wagon/crossover vehicle receives a sport suspension with MacPherson struts in the front and a coil-ring rear suspension that provides more responsive handling and a more stable, supple ride. Pontiac also added a new digital compass, which becomes part of the vehicle information center, located on the instrument panel.
As in previous years, the Torrent's unique rear seat can slide forward or back, so drivers can adjust it to provide more cargo space or more legroom for backseat passengers. The back seats also recline into two positions. Other standard features include antilock brakes, fog lights, power locks and windows, keyless entry, air conditioning, a six-speaker audio system, and a roof rack.
A standard 185-horsepower, 3.4-liter V6 engine powers the Torrent base trim. The engine links to a five-speed, electronically controlled automatic transmission.
The Torrent received high marks in front and side impact crash tests in previous years and comes standard with a theft-deterrent alarm system. Options include OnStar, side-impact airbags, and a power sunroof.

No additional major features.

The 2008 Pontiac Torrent Base AWD trim comes equipped with an on-demand all-wheel-drive system that delivers power to the front wheels during normal driving conditions and automatically sends power to all wheels when it detects slippage. A StabiliTrak system also provides improved traction and stability, as does the Torrent's sport suspension, which consists of MacPherson struts in the front and a coil-ring rear suspension.
Standard features for the Torrent Base AWD includes a Driver Information Center with a new digital compass, among other features, as well as a keyless entry system, power windows and door locks, cruise control, air conditioning, a tire pressure monitoring system, and a six-speaker audio system.
As in previous years, the Torrent's unique rear seat can slide forward or back, so drivers can adjust it to provide more cargo space or more legroom for backseat passengers. The back seats also recline into two positions.

The sporty Pontiac Torrent GXP trim package, which debuts for the 2008 model year, rides on a performance suspension and has been dropped an inch lower to the ground than the Base trim. In addition, the Torrent GXP features a revised front end, a unique hood with cooling vents, and larger 18-inch wheels (compared to 16-inch standard wheels for the Base trim).
A 263-horsepower, 3.6-liter, 24-valve V6 engine drives the vehicle from 0 to 60 in just under 7 seconds. The engine links to a six-speed automatic transmission, which impedes the GXP's sport appeal just a bit but provides smooth shifting.
Inside, the Torrent GXP features heated front sport bucket seats with beefed-up side bolsters, a unique dashboard and instrument cluster with red-backlit gauges, and a leather-wrapped three-spoke steering wheel. Other standard features include a remote vehicle starter system, antilock brakes, a tire pressure monitoring system, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, and a new digital compass, which is part of the Digital Information Center, located on the instrument panel.
The rear seat of the Torrent GXP can slide forward or back, so drivers can adjust it to provide more cargo space or more legroom for backseat passengers. The back seats also recline into two positions, adding flexibility for passengers.

New to the Pontiac lineup for 2008, the sporty Torrent GXP AWD features a revised front end, a unique hood with cooling vents, and larger 18-inch wheels (compared to 16-inch standard wheels for the Base trim). The GXP AWD also rides on a performance suspension, and has been dropped an inch lower to the ground than the Base trim, adding to its sporty nature.
The Torrent GXP AWD comes equipped with an on-demand all-wheel-drive system that delivers power to the front wheels during normal driving conditions and automatically sends power to all wheels when it detects slippage.
A 263-horsepower, 3.6-liter, 24-valve V6 engine drives the vehicle from 0 to 60 in just under 7 seconds. The engine links to a six-speed automatic transmission, which impedes the GXP's sporty appeal just a bit, but provides smooth shifting.
Inside, the Torrent GXP AWD features heated front Sport bucket seats with beefed-up side bolsters, a unique dashboard and instrument cluster with red-backlit gauges, and a leather-wrapped three-spoke steering wheel. Other standard features include a remote vehicle starter system, antilock brakes, a tire pressure monitoring system, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, and a new digital compass, which is part of the Digital Information Center, located on the instrument panel.
