2006 Pontiac Torrent Preview

By Joe Thewall

Pontiac is a latecomer to the compact sport utility segment but we think the Torrent was worth the wait.  Based on the same platform as the successful Chevrolet Equinox, the Torrent adds a dose of Pontiac excitement with a sport-tuned suspension, 185 HP V6 and 5 speed automatic standard.  The styling says “European” and looks especially fetching in black.  Interior is roomy and comfortable and the Torrent is actually fun to tool around in. Starts at $22,990.  Check back often for a full review of the Torrent.


  • · Clean, sporty styling
  • · Drives like a car, not a truck
  • · Interior design is clean and sleek  – a place you wouldn’t mind spending time
  • · Great sound system
  • · Gay-friendly company


  • · Exterior does not look good in all colors
  • · Interior quality is great for a GM but not quite up to competitors’ standards

Pontiac is a gay-friendly company.
