Pontiac was also one of the few U.S. automakers to utilize a mid-engine design with the Fiero in the 1980s.
Pontiac offered the Torrent SUV, but never featured a truck line. Many Pontiac dealers also sold GMC trucks and Buick cars to offer a diverse product mix. The Grand Prix sedan and coupe of the 1990s and 2000s sold well as did its follow-up, the Pontiac G6. Pontiac offered the Vibe in the early 2000s, which was based on a Toyota Matrix platform.
Pontiac developed the Solstice in the early 2000s, which as a competitor to the Mazda Miata. Pontiac also imported and rebadged an Australian Holden sedan and offered it for sale in the late 2000s. The brand did not survive GM’s bankruptcy and reorganization and was phased out in 2010.
