Pontiac revealed the G6 GXP show vehicle at the 2004 SEMA Show. The concept is powered by a 3.6-liter HO V6 engine that is capable of developing 275 horsepower that are being sent to the wheels through a close-ratio six-speed manual transmission. It features an integrated system of chassis and suspension refinements designed to complement the high-performance drive-train, as well as delivering special exterior and interior appointments. The G6 GXP model is very easy to recognize because of its aggressive appearance, with new front and rear fascias. The performance appearance of the vehicle is accentuated by a lowered ride height, which settles the G6 GXP body over a set of 18-inch chromed heels and high-performance tires.
