The Pontiac G6 is a mid-size car produced under the Pontiac brand of American automaker General Motors. It was introduced in the fall of 2004 (14 years ago) to replace the Grand Am. The car is built on the GM Epsilon platform which it shares with the Chevrolet Malibu and Saab 9-3 along with other General Motors vehicles. Styling was redone in a more conservative fashion, and the ribbed cladding and rear spoiler that were prevalent on the Grand Am was replaced by standard sheet metal. New features included a remote starting system as well as a panoramic sunroof option.

Overview

When the G6 was introduced in 2005 (13 years ago), it had two trim levels, base V6 and sportier GT. Both engines, however, used a 3.5L pushrod V6 producing 200 horsepower and 220 lb/ft of torque. Matched to a four-speed automatic transmission, the GT featured TAPshift, where the driver could select the gears manually. Base models were well equipped, featuring power locks, windows and mirrors with keyless entry, 6 speaker CD stereo, power drivers seat, air conditioning and split folding rear seat. GTs added an 8 speaker Monsoon stereo, premium cloth seats with 6 way adjustment, remote start, ABS and traction control.

In 2006 (12 years ago), the G6 added two new trim levels and two new bodystyles, a coupe and a retractable hard top convertible. The new trims were a new base four-cylinder trim (sometimes referred to as "SE"), and the high performance GTP. Coupes and Convertibles were available in GT and GTP trims only. The new base model used a 167 horsepower, 2.4L DOHC inline-4, mated to a 4 speed automatic transmission. The 3.5L V6 was now part of a sport-package on the base/SE, and remained standard on the GT. The new GTP used a 3.9L version of the GT's 3.5L V6, but also utilizes Variable-Valve Timing (VVT), increasing output to 240. A four-speed automatic transmission was standard, but for no cost, a six-speed manual was available. The 6 speed and 3.9L combination produced a 0-60 time of an impressive 6.4 seconds. The GTP convertible was not available with the manual transmission and reduced its horsepower to 227, due to a more restrictive exhaust system. The GTP also features stability control, not available on other G6 models.

The 2007 (11 years ago) G6 saw more engine changes, and standard side torso and side curtain airbags was new. The GT now featured VVT on its 3.5L V6, raising horsepower from 200 to 224. The 3.9L V6 became an option on the GT, producing 227 horsepower in automatic transmission form and 240 horsepower in manual transmission form. The GTP was given a new 3.6L DOHC V6 with 24 valves and VVT, producing 252 horsepower. It is mated to a 6 speed automatic transmission. Midway through the model year the 6-speed was dropped with the 3.9L, along with its 240 horsepower output. The GTP convertible was also discontinued. For 2008 (10 years ago), the GTP became the GXP with more dramatic styling cues, and the 3.9L engine became an exclusive convertible option, with horsepower down to 222. SAE ratings also dropped the horsepower ratings on the 2.4L and 3.5L models to 164 and 219 (217 on convertibles), respectively.

For 2009 (9 years ago), the G6 4-cylinder sedan adds a sport package that adds the GXP's 6-speed automatic transmission. Midway through the model year, the G6 was given a facelift, with a revised front and rear fascia as well as a revision on the interior. 2009 (9 years ago).5 also marks the availability of a four-cylinder engine on the coupe for the first time.

2005 GXP concept

The 2005 (13 years ago) GXP concept was built by General Motors Performance Division. It includes a 3.6L HO VVTI V6 engine rated 275hp, F40 6-speed manual transmission, performance intake, GM Performance cat-back exhaust with bright tips, and 19-inch wheels with Bridgestone Potenza RE040 255 series tires. It was unveiled in 2004 (14 years ago) SEMA show, and was later sold at eBay Motors. The bid ended in 2009-05-03 with winning bid price of US $16,500.00.
