Just picked up a 2009 G6 GXP as my choice of winter cruiser. I'm impressed with the performance of the 3.6L V6. Just under 2,000 miles and I've found it a fun car to drive.

Hey is that a G8 GXP up there too? ADOPT ME!:D LOL
That's funny...you'll have to stand in line. Yeah, it's one of 56 Stryker Blue G8 GXP's made. I knew it was a special ride but I never knew it was going to be so unique. Still can't believe GM threw Pontiac to the curb. What a shame...

G8 Sedan's (V6 LY7 as in G6 GXP) - 5 speed auto
G8 GT (V8 6.0L L76) - 6 speed auto
G8 GXP (V8 6.2L LS3) - 6 speed auto or manual

manual...right??
Actually in the G8 GXP, automatics have tested faster. Electronic shifting has come a long way. Nothing like shifting a manual gearbox to get your heart pounding, but no, it's a 6 speed automatic. You can select between normal and sport shift, which changes to more aggressive shift points or put it in manual mode and use the + and - to shift thru the gears. Auto comes with remote start, manual not. I use it for business during the summer, so opted for the auto. Of course finding a Stryker Blue GXP with either trans was a challenge in itself. There is still a big grin on my face when I drive it...:)

I'm always in the manumatic mode with my humble 4 speed :cool: First got it with my Grand Prix which had the shifters on the steering wheel, which is still a more convenient setup overall but I'm used to doing it from the floor now (behave!).

Hi guys,
G6 GXP Street edition models are easily identified by their new front fascia, which features new fog lamps and braided polished stainless steel upper and outboard lower grille inserts with chrome surrounds on the upper grille sections leading to a revised hood with scoops. New body side rocker moldings lead to a redesigned rear fascia with two exhaust openings. Chrome, dual-wall tips exit through the openings. A rear spoiler also is part of the GXP package, but is specific to either the coupe or sedan; the coupe model receives a larger, more aggressive “hammerhead” spoiler. GXP-specific 18-inch wheels are also standard in the Street edition package.
