2006 Pontiac Grand Prix GXP 4dr Sedan (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
If you want a truly quick 4 door car with a nice size trunk and you know that rear wheel drive just doesn't cut it in the snow belt then the GXP may be the car you are looking for. Blazing fast (Car & Driver says 14.3 seconds in the quarter) with very good handling for a large front wheel driver. Yes, I know rear wheel drive is better for 10/10s driving, but be honest how often do you drive 10/10s? On the other hand I drive in the snow every winter and front wheel drive wins hands down there. The Heads Up Display is a hoot and watching it display direction to your destination from the nav system is extremely cool. Build quality pretty good, nice even gaps, no squeaks or rattles.
1) Heads up display is great! 2) Neck snapping acceleration.
1) Doesn't have built in garage door opener. 2) Monsoon stereo system is only fair for a high end stereo.
