Pontiac Montana details:
The Pontiac Montana nameplate was used as a trim level of the Pontiac Trans Sport van from 1997 to 1998, but dropped the Trans Sport for 1999. This generation was alike to the Buick GL8, the Chevrolet Venture, the Oldsmobile Silhouette, and the Opel Sintra. The Pontiac Montana came in both short and long wheelbase models. The Pontiac Montana was one of the few minivans which offers seats for eight.
For the 2005 model year, the Pontiac Montana was revised to have a layout more alike to an SUV, resulting in its new name, SV6. The 2005 Pontiac Montana SV6 used a 3. 5 L High Value 3500 LX9 V6 that generated 200 hp and 220 ft·lbf. Alike to the Chevrolet Uplander, Saturn Relay, and Buick Terraza, it is the third costliest of its cousins and starting at US$24840,. The van is built near Atlanta, Georgia. On November 21, 2005, GM announced that it would close the Doraville, Georgia assembly plant, which manufactured the SV6, in 2008. However, several months later, GM announced that the SV6 would be discontinued after 2006 in the US sphere thanks to poor sales and because it did not fit within Pontiac's performance picture. In Canada, where the van has a loyal following, sales will continue.
