2004 - A Fresh redesign
The base SE has been dropped, so only GT and GTP models will be offered. The base
GT engine is a 200hp version of the 3.8-liter V6, while the GTP gets upgraded with an
Eaton supercharger good for an additional 55 horsepower. Both models will continue to use
a four-speed automatic transmission, but an optional "Comp G" performance package will
add steering wheel mounted paddle shifters for executing quick manual shifts. The package
also includes stiffer suspension tuning, 17-inch wheels and tires, a variable electronic
throttle control and a standard Stabilitrak stability control system.
Both Grand Prix models will feature a restyled interior
that includes three dimensional analog gauges, satin nickel accents and richer
materials throughout. Functionality has been improved by adding a fold flat front
passenger seat, rear doors that open wider and larger trunk
opening with flat folding rear seats.
