2006 Pontiac Grand Prix GXP 4dr Sedan (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
Granted this is a front wheel drive with 303 HP and paddle shifters on an automatic. But this is one fun car to drive, and on road trips, it is delightful. Even the fuel economy is good. First, it burns regular gas, second it has the fuel saving engine and at road speeds, 4 cylinders shut down and seamlessley start up again when you hit the accelerator. With Stability Control, Magni Steer, and Full Time traction control, Plus the fantastic Heads Up Display, this is a safe car to drive. Just listen to the sound of the Small Block V-8, and you want to ride all day. Gas mileage, I am heavey footed but still getting 25 in Hiway, and 17 to 20 in mixed. That is 400 miles on a tank of gas. Try it!
303 V 8; Heads Up Display; Paddle Shifters; Stabilitrack, Magisteer, Great looking Duals, Great looking 18" Wheels; good trunk, On Star with Directions, XM Satellite Radio
utlimately a rear wheel dive or all wheel drive; E - 85 Ethanol V- 8 engine with Displacement of 4 cylindars.
