However, economically, it would have made sense for GM NOT to have said "There will be several trim levels for the G6: bases, performance, coupes and even a convertable" before the cars were released.
Because when they were released, and people saw that there was only a two trim level option with very little distinguishing factors between them, I think people were a bit upset.
If GM had brought out all of them at once, or at least the coupe, four cylinder, and GTP at intro, it would've been a bigger deal.
There is a lot involved when it comes to stamping the body's out. My dad was stamping the G6 coupe at the new plant in Lansing and he said that they had a LOT of problems. Apparently they had to do a lot of hand work on the body before it could be painted. He also advised me not to buy a coupe because they had to remove all of the galvanizing just to get the metal to look right in some areas.Smockonallama said:I don't think they need time to adjust at all. This is all automation. I work on robots for a living right now and I can tell you that once the lines are setup on paper and installed it is just a matter of time to get the programs installed and running. Once that is set there is just PLC and saftey systems to configure and the weld guns need to be calibrated. Once they start rolling off the assembly line there is nothing to adjust to. The cars will just roll down their respective line in the body and assembly shops.
I disagree, I love the front of the car. It's much more aggressive looking than probably any other sedan out there, imo. I just wish they put the front and rear fascia from the GXP concept on it.Subtle_Cynicism said:My friend absolutely hates the front of the G6 (loved the concept, though), because the front bumper is so...I dont want to say ugly, but for a sportier coupe or up level trim at least, it's very conservative and plain. It reminds me of the 05 Malibu bumpers, until they gave them a facelift for sport in 06.
If you look at Pontiac Canada website, they have an asskicking video when you click on G6. It has a silver GTP coupe racing fire through a tunnel; it was pretty much gorgeous; I just wish the front bumper was a bit more...GT'ish?
Did you notice how the lower front grille was painted silver on that G6??Subtle_Cynicism said:If you look at Pontiac Canada website, they have an asskicking video when you click on G6.
