Pontiac revealed the pricing for the 2009 Vibe. Apparently it will start at $15.895 and it will be available in dealer showrooms from February 2008. An all-wheel-drive model will start at $19.495 and the performance-oriented GT model will start at $19.895. All the prices mentioned above include a $585 destination and freight charge. The Vibe features a 1.8-liter engine that sends the power to the wheels through a five-speed manual transmission. Actually this engine can be upgraded to a 2.4-liter engine. Safety is a very important feature for the carmaker and this is why the model comes with four-wheel-disc brakes with ABS, StabiliTrak electronic stability control, six airbags and OnStar. GT models and all-wheel-drive models come standard with the 2.4-liter engine that produces 158 horsepower.
