The 2010 G6 GT Mystery

I'm hoping someone would explain to me about the 2010 G6 GT...

According to GM, the 2010 G6 GT wasn't supposed to exist, it was deleted. And yet, I've seen at least a couple fleet 2010 GT's for sale.

Of course, I'm interested because the 2009.5 model GT's lacked StabiliTrak, while all 2010 G6's came with StabiliTrak. And, I'd prefer a GT with StabiliTrak than having to hunt down a base model with all the GT's features.

Looking at the option codes for the 2010 MY, I'm wondering if all 1SH package orders just got GT badged at the last minute.

Anyone have any clear ideas here on how these 2010 GT's came to be?

One thing I have notice is (online) cars that listed as 2010 G6s that are for sale have instrument cluster gauge graphics similar to the 2005-09 (maybe a different font), whereas the 2009(.5) have very different gauge graphics, has anyone else noticed this?

Oh and it looks like all the ones listed as 2010 base (2.4 or 3.5) models have leather steering wheels.
If the front end of the car has the 2009.5 styling, it's either a 2009.5 or a 2010. If it has the older front facia... it's mislabeled and is 2009 or earlier.

Easiest way to know for sure if it has StabiliTrak is to have an independent dealer do a build order/sheet on the car. Give another dealer the VIN and have them check for FX3, that is the code for StabiliTrak.

ANY G6 with FX3 has StabiliTrak, and ANY G6 that doesn't have FX3 lacks StabiliTrak. No exceptions.

The rest of this was to try and figure out an easier way than having a build order made up for each car you're interested in, as many dealers often leave off StabiliTrak from their feature list (especially online). Some also accidentally list it on cars that lack it.

Of course, the real culprit is GM here... all cars should have StabiliTrak. Unfortunately, they only got around to realizing this after Pontiac's fate was basically sealed (for now anyways).
I guess I wasn't very clear, sorry I meant that the 2009.5 and 2010 (both new front ends) have different gauge graphics
