Pontiac Bonneville Model G

In 1982 the Bonneville name got slapped on a G-body based car, inheriting a surname of ‘Model G’. This platform was shared with the Pontiac Grand Prix, Chevrolet Malibu, Olds Cutlass Supreme, etc. It was a few hundred pounds lighter than the old B-body platform Station wagon and sedan were the two body styles. Two engines were carried over from the old B-body version. These were the 231 V6 and 350 Diesel. Two others were added, which were a 252 CID 2bbl Buick V6 making 125hp, and a 262 CID Diesel Oldsmobile V6 making 85hp.

In 1983 the 252 V6 and 262 Diesel V6 were both already dropped. Both were replaced with a 305 CID 4bbl Chevrolet V8 which made 150hp. The 350 Diesel still hung on. The end of our Model G coverage…
