2005 Pontiac Grand Prix - Price Quote

Visit Pontiac for more information on the Pontiac Grand Prix.

The Pontiac Grand Prix is a model that has been around for a long time in the stable of the GM wing responsible for pure driving excitement. The larger of Pontiac's two sedans, the Grand Prix has a nice amount of power to match the smooth comfort of the ride and the strong safety features that provide owners with a calming peace of mind.

There are quite a few new additions to the Grand Prix this year. Standard OnStar assistance and an optional remote starting top the list, but there are more.

The remote starting system operates from the keyfob and is joined as a new option by a navigation system and dual-zone automatic climate control. A CD/MP3 stereo is also newly available, and all models gain rear-seat cupholders as well.

Available Models
The 2005 Pontiac Grand Prix is offered in three models: base, GT and GTP.

Interior Features
The four-door Pontiac Grand Prix sedan is roomy enough to accommodate up to five passengers without cramming them together. It also provides up to 57 cubic feet of cargo space.

OnStar is now standard on all Grand Prix models and features new, sixth generation hardware with digital and analog coverage. OnStar's Gen 6 hardware also includes upgraded hands-free voice recognition capabilities including more intuitive continuous digit dialing and improved voice recognition accuracy.

Satellite radio and a head-up instrument display are optional.

Exterior Features
Among the exterior changes for the 2005 Pontiac Grand Prix are new 16- and 17-inch wheels and wheel covers.

GT1 and GT2 models use a 3.8-liter V6 engine. It gives the front-wheel drive Grand Prix 200 horsepower at 5200 rpm and 230 lb-ft of torque at 4000 rpm. 4-speed automatic transmission is standard on all models.

GTP models use a supercharged version of the same V6 engine. The result is an impressive 260 horsepower at 5400 rpm and 280 lb-ft of torque at 3600 rpm.

The Competition Group Package (Comp G), optional on the GTP model, makes the 2005 Pontiac Grand Prix capable of attaining .83G of lateral acceleration in turns, making it the best-handling car in its class. StabiliTrak Sport, a segment-exclusive four-wheel vehicle stability enhancement system, also is included in the Comp G package. It features a sports-tuned suspension, 3.29 axle ratio, performance tires and Magnasteer II.

Safety and Security
All models have dual front airbags, daytime running lights and fog lights. GT and GTP models add antilock 4-wheel disc brakes, traction control and a tire-pressure monitor.
