BUT

There is Base with 2.4L - 4cyl
Base v6 3.5L
GT with 3.5L lil more hp iirc and a diff transmission / ratios ( starts to offer sport mode shifting )
GTP - 3.9L and diff tranny? or just ratios.
GXP replaced the gtp after 06

Coupes are only offered in GT GTP AND GXP, apparently there are a few coupes with 2.4L as well...dunno what they are called or the year.

Black 06 GTP Coupe

Performance: Full CRABs | RacingLine street MMIs + STB

GT:
- Available as a 05-09.5
- 4 speed auto is the only transmission available
- Feature a 3.5 engine. 05-06 is the LX9 with 201hp/220tq. 07+ uses the VVT LZ4 with appx 220hp, not sure on tq

Upgrades over base V6 trim:
- upgraded sport suspension over the standard V6 model (stiffer springs and upgraded rear sway bar)
- stainless exhaust tip
- standard spoiler in sedan
- Standard 17" rims, either being the standard polished aluminum or chrometechs (chrome appearance)
- standard tap-shift (manual shift gate)
- performance oriented gear ratio


- the 07 vert was available with the 3.9L LZ9 as part of the sport/performance package. Still branded a GT, NOT a GTP
- available options include (but not all): leather, panoramic roof (05-06ish), monsoon 6disk radio
- some years available with OnStar


GTP:
- available as a 06-07 only
- sedan or coupe
- 06 has 3.9L LZ9 (4 speed auto (w tapshift) or 6 spd stick)
- 07 has the 3.6L LY7 (6 speed auto only)
- standard 6 disk monsoon radio
- some years available with OnStar
- standard spoiler in sedan
- standard dual exhaust

GXP:
- available as a 08-09.5
- uses 3.6L LY7 and 6 speed auto with tapshift
- sedan or convertable
- standard leather seating
- standard monsoon 6 disk radio
- some years available with OnStar (might be a standard feature, not sure)
- standard spoiler in sedan
- GXP Street Edition adds the hammerhead spoiler and hood featuring 2 non functional "ram-air" vents
- standard dual exhaust


All trims feature traction control either standard or optional. Certain years of GTP/GXP feature standard or optional stability control.

Just a few clarifications...
GXP replaced the GTP starting as a 2008 model year
The 2.4 is available in a coupe for the 09.5 model year at which point the 6 speed auto was standard in the 2.4. Previously the 2.4 was only available with a 4 speed auto

Depends on the year and model to....

as an example can a GT have a 3.9? Yup....if its a Convertible.

The GTP had a 3.9 in 2006...and a 3.6 in 2007!

It can get confusing.

MODS:
Crab Intakes CAB, MPD Ram Air hood, Custom exhaust,
WAMS High Performance Tune and a whole lot more....

3.6 hands down!
More HP/TQ, better mileage, and if you have tones of money to burn cams, headers, etc...
You also get the 6spd auto vs the 4 spd auto or 6 spd stick

And the GXP looks soo much better!

its to bad they didnt just give all of them a 6 speed. it'd be much more fun to hit the highway in our 3.5's and shiftin 6 gears instead of 4

6 speed manual i think he means, like the 06 gtps like mine, and lets not forget some 07 gt's were left over gtps from 06 and had 6 speed manuals and 3.9ls

Sorry I'm late to the party but yeah Pontiac loves to switch up model designations for no real good reason. I'm not super well versed on the G6 ones but I've owned various Grand Prix's over the years and as a quick for-instance my 1989 SE was the top of the line model (base, LE, SE) but when I bought my 1997 GTP the SE was the "low end" (SE, GT, GTP). Also from 97-05 the GTP was the one with the supercharged engine; suddenly in 06 the GT was the one with the supercharged engine, so an 05 GT and 06 GT were completely different. Head spinning I tell ya

On that note in 2005 the GT was the TOP OF THE LINE....
In 2006-7 it was the GTP. Replaced in 2008-10 by the GXP.

Actually to be super technical the GXP was only 08-09 - the GT was back on top for the brief 2010 run
