2010 Pontiac G8 Sport Truck

When the first 2010 Pontiac G8 Sport Truck premiered from the mid-80s, it created the Multi-Purpose Vehicle (MPV) as we understand it today, a vehicle with eight or seven chairs that drives just like a car. It had been such a hit that it sent all automobile manufacturers, including the Japanese and Europeansback to the drawing boards to come up with their own MPV models.

Twenty five years on, with almost every carmaker having its own interpretation of this Voyager, Chrysler has needed to continually upgrade its MPVs to keep a lead from the section that it created. The present Grand Voyager is that inaugural version and was launched from the late 90s. It had an outside facelift two years ago, and this year it receives the revolutionary'Stow n Go' chairs.

Flexibility has always been crucial to the appeal of this MPV, but removing the chairs and locating a place to store it's a problem, particularly in the Asian markets where individuals do not often have garages. Before'Stow n Go', the Grand Voyager had small castors beneath their chairs so that they could be wheeled about, however they were still incredibly heavy to lift from the automobile.  The remedy is for chairs which don't have to be lifted out, but entirely disappear into the floor.

Actually, the disappearing third row seat isn't a new idea the first'96 Honda Odyssey needed a third row seat that folded and turned to a well from the floor, along with the Voyager adopts the idea. Nevertheless, it's the fold of the second row seats that is particularly clever. Following five simple steps, along with the tugging of many tabs and straps, the entire seat literally disappears to the floor without a trace. This is all the more impressive since the seat modification functions are not compromised when upright, it could both recline and slide.

The secret of course, is to have a seat which folds to as compact a bundle as possible, and this is accomplished by using swab and backrest of equivalent length. This results in a fairly low backrest for an otherwise comfy seat. This implies that for many adults, the headrest needs to be increased to keep it from cutting to the middle of their backs.

The mechanicals of this Grand Voyager remain mostly unchanged with a torquey 3.3-litre V6 making it sense well-powered and relaxed. Cruising is extremely effortless from the Chrysler, and there is an impressive absence of road- or - engine-noise. It's likewise extremely well-equipped with a roof-mounted DVD player and a lot of storage locations.

There's also an abundance of automation around the Grand Voyager.  Both the sliding rear doors are power-operated, since is your tailgate, and so are the tufted back windows.

Everything can be controlled by the driver's seat, which is very convenient. {The doors can also be opened and closed remotely {with|with all|using} the key fob, useful on rainy days or when one's hands are complete. |} The integration of a Placing monitor screen to the rear view mirror is likewise quite thoughtful - it is a surprise no one else has thought of doing this. Quite obviously, the folks at Chrysler are not resting on their laurels, but also have continually added more and more convenient features to this MPV.

The only quirk in this otherwise remarkable MPV is that the entire steering columns, together with the stems, have been removed from a left handed push automobile. This means the column gearshift is on the motorist's correct, when in many instances it's operated by the left hand. Apart from this, the Grand Voyager continues to impress, and preserves its own title as the supreme MPV, if price and size were no object.
