Tear in my beer: GM reportedly kills off 2010 Pontiac G8 ST



Filed under: Trucks/Pickups, GM, Pontiac

Hold on to your Budweiser coozies: Details are scarce at the moment, but Pickuptruck.com is reporting that Pontiac has quietly euthanized plans to introduce the 2010 Pontiac G8 ST. The muscular G8-based trucklet was to signal the re-emergence of the unibody pickup in North America, a genre once populated with vehicles like the Chevrolet El Camino and Ford Ranchero, along with smaller front-drive moppets like the Volkswagen Rabbit pickup and Dodge Rampage.

The Austrailian-built rear-drive G8 ST was to arrive with V8 power, a 74-inch cargo hold, and a 3500-pound towing capacity, making it less capable than full-size body-on-frame pickups like General Motors' own Silverado/GMC Sierra twins, with the predicted trade-off of markedly better handling and fuel economy.

The ST was to launch as a 2010 model later this year, and prices were rumored to start in the low $30k range. Although we are unsurprised to learn of the truck's cancellation (as GM is actively slimming down its portfolio and the baby muscle pickup was expected to serve as a small-volume niche model), we can't help but get a little misty-eyed at the loss of what promised to be a truly epic donut-making machine.

^^^^ what he said.

The American auto makers keep building V8 stuff. Because EVERYONE wants that nowadays. Especially when gas was $4.00+. I guess they havent figured out why their sales are down. I drove by a Ford lot the other night and basically it was full of full-size vans, medium to full size SUV's and Trucks. Then there was about 2 rows of cars.

A Chevy lot was similar to that that was next to it.

Got a clue? Nope lets just keep making what people arent buying. GOOD IDEA!

NOT!
