2008 Pontiac Torrent 4dr SUV AWD (3.4L 6cyl 5A)


The vehicle replaced a leased 2005 GMC EnvoyXL SLT. Though the Envoy was loaded the Torrent has plenty of features and is fun to drive. I pulled my boat 500 miles with no problem and the mileage is about 20% better than the Envoy. The Torrent is fun to drive, don't believe the reviews about it being "mushy" etc. The 3.4 V6 has plenty of spunk. The vehicle performs very well in town and on the highway. Highway mileage is about 25 and city is about 18. Plenty of room inside for 4 adults for long distance and 5 adults is not problem for shorter drives, rear seating has amazing leg room and front seat passenger seat has more room than the Envoy. We added the chrome package and leather.

Best Features

Mileage for an SUV is very good. Tows up to 3500 lbs, much more than other crossovers. Smooth ride. Handles like a car, not a truck.

Worst Features

The area between the front seats is a poor design. Should offer climate control. Window controls in the center are a pain.
