2008 Dodge Charger R/T vs. 2008 Pontiac G8 GT | Edmunds.com
Cars like the new 2008 Pontiac G8 GT and 2008 Dodge Charger R/T were once
supposed to be every American's birthright. Brawny, V8-powered, relatively
affordable rear-drive cruisers that can blow through a couple of big
Western states in an afternoon at 90 mph - their drivers staring at the
horizon through Ray-Bans, steering with one hand and smoking a Pall Mall
with the other.

When describing the quintessential American sedan, car enthusiasts no-doubt
mention V8 engines and rear-wheel drive. So it is surprising that Pontiac,
General Motor's supposed performance division, hasn't offered that
powertrain combination for years. Classic car fans can now rejoice: the
Pontiac G8 is a thoroughly modern car that harkens back to the
rear-wheel-drive glory days of American sedans.
Having been out of the rear-drive V8 game for a while, Pontiac found
inspiration in Australia where high-power sedans have thrived for decades.
Essentially a re-badged Australian-market sedan, the G8 delivers a
much-needed performance punch for Pontiac, in both V6 and V8 flavors.
