Question can i ask a silly question?

They both use the same engine, but the GT has an upgraded suspension over the V6, as well as tap-shift and a stainless (or chrome) exhaust tip (not sure which one it is), and probably a few other things

Having a GT tells the world you're serious about performance and style

Having a V6 tells the world you've got an engine in the car

OK Born2ski's answer was much better than mine

V6 - 3.09 final
GT V6 - 3.29 final

GT adds bling (chrome) along with specific wheels and as mentioned, the tapshift transmission which was the selling point for me.

I'm not an ass man, so I can't say for sure what my exhaust tip looks like. As long as they remain functional, that's all that matters.

The V6 for 2007+ models gained about 20hp and a few pound feet of torque.
