Grand Prix performance continues to expand in 2006 with a new Special Edition package available for Grand Prix and Grand Prix GT models. With a unique look and new 17-inch wheels, the Special Edition package complements the no-holds-barred performance of the V-8-powered Grand Prix GXP, which was introduced in mid-2005.

All ’06 Pontiac Grand Prix models are enhanced with an interior that reflects an increased attention to detail and commitment to comfort. These attributes bolster the traits of a family-friendly, midsize sedan that offers big car roominess with the performance and agility of a sports sedan. Grand Prix is the perfect blend of excitement and practicality.

For 2006, the Grand Prix lineup includes the well-equipped Grand Prix, the sporty Grand Prix GT and the Grand Prix GXP. The Grand Prix is powered by the renowned 3800 Series III V-6, which is rated at 200 horsepower, while the Grand Prix GT comes with the 3800 Series III Supercharged V-6 – it delivers 260 horsepower. The GXP comes with the new 5.3L V-8 with Displacement on Demand technology, which regulates between eight- and four-cylinder operation to enable up to 12 percent improved fuel economy in certain light-load driving situations. It is rated at 303 horsepower.

While the GXP is the ultimate in Grand Prix performance, the new Special Edition package offers a total performance look at a value-driven price of just $1,995 MSRP.
