The Pontiac Torrent is a sport utility vehicle (SUV) that was offered by the Pontiac division of General Motors, being the successor of the discontinued Pontiac Aztek. It was manufactured at CAMI Automotive in Ingersoll, Ontario, Canada, and it replaced the U-body Aztek as the company's crossover SUV for 2006. The Torrent was essentially a Chevrolet Equinox on the Theta platform. The Torrent was introduced at the 2005 Los Angeles Auto Show and went on sale in late summer 2005. The Pontiac Torrent was featured as one of the prizes in the reality television series Survivor in 2005 as well as Criss Angel Mindfreak in the same year. For the 2008 model year, the Torrent gets the Podium Edition trim for the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games. This trim was sold only in Canada.
The Torrent was discontinued after the 2009 model year as part of General Motors having dropped the Pontiac brand.
