Pontiac's hot new G8 sedan
donates its bits and pieces to create the division's first-ever pickup
trucklet. The G8 Sport Truck
features a 6.0-liter V8 that sends 361 horsepower through a six-speed automatic transmission, powering the vehicle to 60 mph in 5.4 seconds -- sans payload. The suspension has been beefed up to deal with whatever extra weight may burden the bed, while big 12-inch disc brakes grab at all four wheels. Behind its sport seats, the G8 Sport Truck features 8.5 cubic feet of secure storage space. Look for it to arrive late 2009 with a new name and an estimated starting price somewhere south of $30,000.
