    Pontiac Bonneville has been delivering driving excitement and total comfort to owners since the 1950s. For 2004, Bonneville receives an all-new performance model, the GXP.

    Available in early 2004. It comes with refined styling (including new fascias, headlamps, taillamps, exhaust tips and a spoiler), more horsepower, and an upgraded interior. It was designed and engineered to deliver brute power on-call but with the ability to cruise from California to Florida in comfort.

    The GXP features an aluminum 4.6L DOHC 32-valve V-8 engine that kicks out 275 horsepower (205 kw) and 300 lb.-ft. (224 Nm) of torque - enough to pass without even breathing hard. And when the throttle opens up, the performance-tuned dual exhausts let out a pleasing rumble, letting the driver know just where the power is coming from.

    The GXP's performance-tuned handling package includes a revised four-wheel independent suspension, StabiliTrak electronic stability system and an electronically controlled transaxle with a 3.71 final drive gear. Stopping power is handled by large four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes. Pontiac also has mounted 18-inch V-rated performance tires on stylish aluminum wheels, providing tenacious grip through the corners.

    New suede inserts adorn the seats and door panels; the shift handle is brushed aluminum; carbon-fiber trim is abundant and the interior switchgear is a rich ebony. Standard memory bucket seats on the GXP model include power lumbar and power recliner controls on the driver's seat. The GXP includes a center console storage with rear heating/cooling outlets. Driver and front-passenger side-impact air bags and dual-zone climate control with individual climate settings for the driver and front passenger are standard with this top-of-the-line model.

    A CD player and Monsoon eight-speaker sound system rivaling many great home systems also are a part of the GXP.

    FUCKING BEAUTIFUL.

    I'm real excited about Pontiac's design cues and how they're leading up to the '05 redesign of the line. I want to trade up from my Grand Am GT in two years...

    If the interior in the new Grand Prix is any indication I'm willing to bet that the interior in that Bonneville ain't so bad either.

    The Grand Prix was a new model. This Bonneville is just a refresh of a 3 year old model with some costmetic changse (no cladding) and added a V8 because the Olds Aurora is no more. I doubt the interior was worked on. :hs:

    It's still FWD.

    They displayed a few at the Dream Cruise (I took a picture of one), the exterior, drivetrain, and suspension is vastly improved.

    The interior didn't change other than the door panels, new seats, instrument cluster, and that sort of thing. The materials seem to be the same.

    :down:

    It's what's inside that counts... and a car that big, with a V-8, driven through a FWD configuration is not where it's at.

    Have Pontiac give me a call when they fix their final fatal flaw.

    It recieved a 1/3 of the interior revision the '04 GP did.

    By the time I saw one the windows were already up because of rain, so I didn't get to sit in it or touch anything, I had to go by what I saw.
