2009 Pontiac G6 Trims

Base

Avg. Price: $11,606

The Base G6 is an anomaly of old and new tech, with an array of very impressive standard features and some curious carryovers. The 164-hp, 2.4-liter inline four is mated to a measly 4-speed automatic transmission, yet traction control is standard. Likewise, antilock four-wheel disc brakes, OnStar with one year of service, power windows, mirrors, and locks, as well as a CD/MP3, satellite-ready stereo are all included, features not usually found on an entry-level trim. Buyers are also treated to air conditioning, a tilt and telescoping steering wheel, reclining front bucket seats with driver's seat power height adjustment, a center console, a split-folding rear seat, tachometer, variable intermittent wipers, and a rear defogger.

Safety features are similarly abundant, with automatic headlights, a theft-deterrent system, dual front airbags, front side airbags, curtain side airbags, and daytime running lights.

Base Coupe

Avg. Price: $11,860

GT

Avg. Price: $11,253

The GT sedan gets the same 219-hp, 3.5-liter Flex-fuel V6 as the coupe and convertible, delivering power via a four-speed automatic transmission with manual shift capability and traction control to help keep all that power applied. Features unique to the GT sedan trim include several visual indicators such as foglights, a sport suspension for a more aggressive stance and better handling, a rear spoiler, and 17-inch alloy wheels that hide four-wheel antilock disc brakes. Its tilt and telescoping steering wheel is leather wrapped and includes integrated radio controls for the satellite-ready Monsoon CD/MP3 stereo. Power and automatic features include windows, doors, and mirrors as well as remote start and entry. Reclining front bucket seats include driver's power height adjustment, and a center console allows for meager storage. The rear seat is a split-folding unit. Final amenities for the inside include a tachometer, an automatic day/night rearview mirror with built-in compass, variable intermittent wipers, a rear defogger, and illuminated visor mirrors.

Safety features are similarly abundant, with automatic headlights, a theft-deterrent system, dual front airbags, front side airbags, curtain side airbags, and daytime running lights.

GT Convertible

Avg. Price: $15,979

Antiskid and traction control keep things civil for drivers of the 219-hp, 3.5-liter V6-powered GT Convertible. Flex-fuel compatible, power is delivered through a 4-speed automatic transmission with manual shift capability. While it doesn’t get the sport suspension of the sedan and coupe, larger 18-inch alloy wheels cover the four-wheel antilock disc brakes and are unique for this trim level. A power-retractable hardtop will let the sun shine if air conditioning isn’t enough for summer days. Its tilt and telescoping steering wheel is leather wrapped and includes integrated radio controls for the satellite-ready Monsoon 6-CD/MP3 stereo. Power and automatic features include windows, doors, and mirrors as well as remote start and entry.

GT Coupe

With 55 more horsepower than the Base trim, the GT has expectedly sportier pretensions. Its 3.5-liter V6 is Flex-fuel compatible and mated to a 4-speed automatic transmission with manual shift capability.

GXP

Avg. Price: $12,712

A close-ratio 6-speed automatic transmission with manual shift capability handles the 252 horsepower that the GXP sedan’s 3.6-liter V6 pumps out. The GXP gets the full treatment for the drivetrain, with traction control and antiskid to make sure tires maintain contact and four-wheel antilock disc brakes to bring its 18-inch wheels to a stop. A sport suspension offers a more aggressive stance and handling, while foglights and a rear spoiler distinguish it from base trims. A heated 6-way power bucket driver’s seat is unique to the trim and complements a passenger bucket and rear split-folding seat. The satellite-ready Monsoon CD/MP3 stereo has integrated radio controls on the tilt and telescoping leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a tachometer and center console are at the driver’s disposal. Automatic climate control is at the top of the creature comfort list, along with power windows, doors, and mirrors, remote start and entry, an automatic day/night rearview mirror with built-in compass, variable intermittent wipers, rear defogger, and illuminated visor mirrors.

GXP Coupe

Avg. Price: $14,337

Sport features abound in the GXP coupe, which features traction control, antiskid, a sport suspension, four-wheel antilock disc brakes, and 18-inch alloy wheels. Perhaps most telling is its 252-hp, 3.6-liter V6 mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission with manual shift capability. Foglights and a rear spoiler further indicate sport aspirations.

The driver enjoys a heated 6-way power bucket seat, while passengers will have to make due with a manual bucket in the front and split-folding back seats. Also ready for the driver is a leather-wrapped tilt and telescoping steering wheel with integrated radio controls for the satellite-ready Monsoon CD/MP3 stereo. A tachometer will show you just how far you can push the willing engine, and a center console will hold driving gloves and speeding tickets alike.
