Default Gxp vs SSEi

I really haven't kept up on this car as I would have liked too, I have a couple of questions for anybody that knows
1. is The Gxp a beefed up Se?
2. is it going to be faster than the SSEi?
3. since it'* preformance is it going to cost the same or more than the SSEi?
4.Will one of the bonneville models be dropped after it comes on sale?
5. Why is there going to be a Gxp model for all pontiacs except the Montana and Aztek?
can anybody answer these questions?
no Mantana Gxp dammit! what about the house wives?



It'* Mista

1. No, it'* a totally new style.
2. Yes, it has a 300HP Caddy V8 RWD. Much more top end power.
3. Probably more.
4. N/A
5. Cause who wants to drive a beefed up Van?

You're not totally wrong. The 05 is supposed to be RWD. We'll see!
