2007 G6?

Has anyone found/heard any information on the 2007 G6? I've scoured the net but haven't been able to find anything. Since quite a few 07 vehicles have already been publically released, it shouldn't be all that long until we hear something. I just don't want to go buy one and then find out they put 270 HP DOHC engine in it for 2007. I'm thinking of ordering a coupe. I don't want to wait, because I've never driven an stick and would want all summer to get it down before winter arrives, but I'd hold off for a year if I knew something great was coming. So if you've heard any snippet, please post.

You took the words from my mouth. Sadly I have no news to report but I can't wait either. Considering I don't have much time left on my lease of my MAXX and I can get my dream car of course the G6 coupe. If anyone knows when the new ones are going to debute please let us know!!

Well the '06s were released in the summer, so I imagine the 07s will be around the same time this year.

There should be some solid info next month. I will be going to the New York Auto Show next month, so I'll ask around. The rumor is that the 3.6 DOHC V6 will be going in the G6 GTP.

Where the hell have you heard that? My lease is up in December, I was going to be glad to get another car, but if that is true I may get another G6.

GM Fleet has an "Online Model Guide".

Actually, the release date has been changed to March 27.

I heard somewhere that side-impact airbags (or perhaps head-curtain airbags or both) will be standard on the '07s.

^ They should be, Accord for '06 and Camry for '07 have made them standard, I bet the new '07 Altima will have them as standard too.

I'll be a little upset if the '07 has standard side airbags, but I won't care that much. I'll be really upset if the GTP has a 270 hp engine. Unless the price tag is higher than the '06.

3.9L stays at 240/225hp.

I got into the system, the CSV info has been released. They get the 3.9L standard for 2007, and the output is 240hp.

Not sure if you're joking...

But the engine hasn't changed. 201HP is the SAE-certified rating. The engine's the same, except that we get a fancy engine cover.

What is CSV info? And do you mean the 3.9 is standard on the GTP for 07' or standard for all G6's?
