New Car Review of the 2005 Pontiac G6 Mid-Size Sedan
Description: Mid-Size Sedan
Options & Features
Pontiac's new mid-size sedan, cast on a long-wheelbase front-wheel-drive (FWD) platform which also supports Chevrolet's Malibu and the 9-3 of Saab, looks sleek but athletic on a taut package with brief overhangs and wheels pushed out to the corners.
The prow, with Pontiac's signature twin-port grille, shows chrome accents and reflective-optic headlamps plus projector-beam foglamps with clear lenses.
A spacious five-seat cabin in G6 brings a driver-oriented cockpit with bolstered bucket seats in front of a split bench that folds for flexibility when arranging riders and gear. And an optional Panoramic roof with four sliding glass panels opens the top practically like a convertible.

Description: Mid-Size Sedan, Coupe and Convertible
Options & Features
Pontiac's mid-size cars, riding on a long FWD platform, conform to three styles drawn with taut lines across a wedge-shaped body. There's a sleek four-door sedan, a sporty two-door coupe and a slick new four-seat hardtop convertible. The convertible has a rigid all-weather roof that folds into the rear deck for fresh-air motoring.
The three configurations of G6 for 2006 appear in two different trims -- GTP and GT. GTP editions score a new 3.9-liter V6 rated at 240 hp and linked to a Hydra-Matic 4T65-E four-speed automatic with manual shift controls or an optional six-speed manual transmission for sedan and coupe. GT issues draw from a 3.5-liter V6 generating 201 hp through a four-speed automatic 4T45-E transaxle with Manual shift mode. And the sedan version of G6 also has a base trim packing GM's 2.4-liter Ecotec four-in-line for 167 hp.
