Pontiac G6 to Be E85 Compatible

The Pontiac G6 will soon be E85 compatible. According to Automobilemag.com, among other changes, the model will soon be flexible fuel.

Upgrades to the current G6 will include a sportier front and rear fascias, inspired by the G8 design, a reimaging on the interior, and a better integration of the various entertainment and comfort options.

The G6 coupe will also have the option of receiving the four-cylinder 164 hp 2.4-liter Ecotec engine. The Ecotec engine provides improved fuel efficiency of 33 mpg. An E85-capable engine will also be offered in areas where the fuel is readily available. Still offered for the G6 is the optional 222-hp 3.9-liter V-6 for the G6 convertible as well as the standard 252-hp 3.6-liter V-6 for all GXP models.

“The G6 has always been one of our most important vehicles and has been Pontiac’s number-one seller since it was launched in 2004,” said Susan Docherty, vice president of Buick-Pontiac-GMC. “As the most complete family of mid-size vehicles available in the marketplace, the new enhancements for 2009 will further solidify the G6’s reputation for sporty style and handling without sacrificing value and fuel efficiency.”
