Default 04 GXP vs. 05 GXP 0-60MPH

Now I'm guessing they are the same but............

According to GM'* own Brochures the 04 is listed at 6.5 and the 05 is listed at 6.8.

Now I guess some would say they overrated the 04 but since I have the 04, I'll just be optomistic that it must be quicker in some way

(Not sure if you will be able to read the text)

I would say they are just being truefull about what each car ran at the time. FWD cars are a bitch to launch at the track and temperatures, humidity, air density, driver experience, track condition can account for alot more than .3 seconds.
