The first generation Pontiac Vibe made its debut in 2003. The Vibe was a short hatchback that was being marketed as a station wagon. It came in three models; an entry level, GT and an all-wheel drive model. The entry-level model was powered by a 126 horsepower 1.4 Liter I4 engine with 16 valves built by Toyota. The same engine powered the all-wheel drive model with 118 horsepower. The GT model was powered by a VVTL-I engine with 164 horsepower. Anti-lock brakes were installed on the all-wheel drive and GT models. Side air bag for the front passenger was made optional. All Vibe models were equipped with 16-inch tires, fog lights, a CD player and air conditioning. In 2004, the base model got an improvement, increasing its horsepower by five, while the GT dropped five. A system to monitor pressure on all the tires was installed in 2005. Leather seats and the On Star system also became available. In 2007, the all-wheel drive and GT models were dropped from the lineup.
