2008 Pontiac G8 Long Term Road Test

2008 Pontiac G8 GT: Limited Options And Color

June 23, 2008

Our long-term 2008 Pontiac G8 GT is fully equipped. But it's still not ritzy. And I like that. As detailed in the introduction, it has the two available option packages, Sport and Premium...

Want more? Well, there's an optional sunroof. And that's about it. Pontiacs should embody affordable performance, and the G8 GT fits this brand mission perfectly.

If I were actually shopping for a 2008 G8 GT, however, I'd be bummed about the limited choice of exterior color. There's white, black, gray, orange and red. I think we got the best of the bunch with black.

Thankfully, more colors are coming up for 2009, including a "Stryker Blue" metallic.

(Update: It's possible that there's a blue ("Stealth Blue") for 2008. It's shown on Edmunds' G8 color page. But that color is currently missing or not available on Pontiac's build site.)
