Model overview

The Pontiac G8 is a full-size sedan that was built by Holden in Australia, and then exported to the U.S., where it was marketed by Pontiac. The G8, a rebadged Holden Commodore, debuted in 2008 for the 2008 model year in the U.S. Making ceased mid-2009, following the GM resolution to suspend the Pontiac brand. The G8 was Pontiac's prime full-size vehicle since the GTO coupe and Bonneville were sold back in 2006.
