Confirmed: 2009 G8 Gets XM, Bluetooth

GM has updated their online ordering guide to include the 2009 Pontiac G8. GMI has been told that the 2009 model G8 will start production in April of this year, so nonetheless, the 2008 model-year is going to be a short one for the G8.

2009 is going to add XM Radio and Bluetooth hands-free calling standard on all G8 models. The Bluetooth includes a "Human-Machine Interface."

There are also rumors that the G8 is going to gain a GXP performance model. The car is supposedly powered by the 6.2L LS3 V8 with a 6-speed manual and optional 6-speed automatic. The GXP's body is said to resemble the Holden Commodore HSV

6.2 liter LS3?! SWEET!!! I'd say we can now safely assume this engine will have a home in the new Camaro. Z28, anyone?

Bob Lutz: "There's no doubt that a design-driven philosophy is the only one that will work. People who are not sensitive to design, people who don't care about vehicles, people who view a vehicle as an appliance, they just default to Toyota. We will never win that one."

I think its a safe guess that the G8 GT will equate to a base V8 Camaro (SS) and the GXP to the Z28. It has that vibe to me.
