Model Highlights

The 2009 Torrent enters its fourth year as Pontiac's mid-size crossover entrant, and it is now the division's only vehicle that can be ordered with all-wheel drive.

The base Torrent is powered by a 3.4L V6 that produces 185 horsepower and is paired with a five-speed automatic. The GXP runs on a 3.6L V6, making 264 horsepower, and is mated to a six-speed automatic. The Torrent can carry up to 68.6 cubic feet of cargo with the rear seats folded, and it will also tow up to 3,500 pounds. Versatility is enhanced by the rear seats' ability to recline and slide forward and backward, allowing five passengers to be comfortably transported.

Standard equipment on the base Torrent includes a luggage rack, fog lamps, power mirrors, a comprehensive driver information center with an 8-point compass, power locks with remote keyless entry, power windows, an alarm system, XM satellite radio and air conditioning.

Standard equipment on the GXP includes deep tinted glass, heated front sport bucket seats, seven cup holders, front and rear floor mats, leather wrapped steering wheel with mounted audio controls and a remote vehicle starter system.

All levels of audio systems are offered in the Torrent. The standard CD player includes XM satellite radio and an auxiliary input jack for portable digital music players, while an upgraded CD player can handle MP3 files. A six-disc CD changer is optional, as is a DVD entertainment system, a navigation system and a 260-watt seven-speaker system with an amplifier and a subwoofer.

Safety is bolstered by standard traction control, StabiliTrak, four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, daytime running lamps and one year of OnStar. Dual-stage frontal and head curtain side-impact air bags are standard as well.


Model News

For the 2009 Pontiac Torrent, XM satellite radio and a digital compass in the Driver Information Center are standard on all models, as are dual-stage frontal and head curtain side-impact air bags. Bluetooth hands-free connectivity is now available.


Value Writeup

The 2009 Pontiac Torrent gains advantage over other crossover vehicles by offering more room per dollar. The spacious rear makes carrying five adults a real possibility, and the potential cargo-carrying capacity is generous. The Torrent also received five stars in NHTSA's frontal and side crash tests.


Pros

Roomy rear seat; available all-wheel drive; competitive pricing.

Crash Test Note

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
