The four-door 2008 Pontiac Grand Prix five-passenger sedan carries a base price of $21,815 with the GXP going for $28,815. Both are FWD. The base has a 3.8-liter V6 (200 hp, four-speed automatic), the GXP a 5.3-liter V8. With the V6 expect to get about 20 miles per gallon around town and 30 on the road with a 17 gallon tank.

The vehicle's body dimensions are: 198.3 inches for length, 71.6 for width, and 55.9 for height. The curb weight is 3,477 lbs. and the wheel base is 110.5 inches. It requires 37.7 ft. turning circle and has a maximum towing capacity of 1,000 lbs.

Standard brakes are disc on all wheels with electronic brake distribution. Standard exterior features include day-time running lamps, halogen headlights with complex surface bulbs, heat reflective glass, a fixed defogger for the rear window, a spoiler, and tinted glass.

Inside look for a cargo capacity of 45.7 cubic feet when the back seat is down and 16 when it's up. The driver's seat (a bucket) tilts and has three positional adjustments. Both the driver and the passenger are protected by a comprehensive airbag array including occupant sensors and multiple levels of deployment.

The standard audio system on the 2008 Pontiac Grand Prix is an AM/FM/CD combo unit playing across six speakers. There's a remote control release for the trunk, an illumination system for entry, power windows, and keyless entry. The standard upholstery is cloth and there are cupholders both front and rear.
