G8 To get FE2 standard in all V6 and V8 cars

9 posts in this topic

Pontiac has said to Auto Week that the G8 will come standard in the V6 and V8 with the FE2 suspension. This is a change on the V6 as it was to have had the FE1. The FE 2 is a much better set up and more fitting for this car even with a V6.

Also they did say the Standard Tranny is coming but it just won't be there for the start of production.

They did not say but I would expect the V8 is the only one getting the man tranny.

The V6 and V8 autos are knee-jerk shoe-ins, the manuals have to show a reasonable potential take rate to make the cut. This will hold true for all G8 variants, though some may only get one engine/trans choice initially.

You guys know what I'll be holding out for. :AH-HA_wink:

Reading about the V6/manual possible configuration, I'm thinking I can't recall when (other than Cadillac) there was a 4dr, 6-cyl, manual, RWD model offered by a domestic automaker...nothing in the last 25 years that I can think of..

Not that it matters, but FE2 sounds like an Olds option code.

Yeah..it does. Cadillac has the same suspension level names also w/ the CTS?

My Bonneville has the FE2 ride and handling package. Just like the Torrent has the FE2 standard. FE2 is sportier than FE1. FE3 was used on the Bonneville GXP I believe. You will see the Torrent GXP has an FE4 I believe. My Impala has the granny riding FE1.
