Default I know that the Bonneville is Pontiacs flagship

But there are a lot of 1st I see the grand prixs have before the bonnies came out with them also.I know the villes are the flagship but why did is i t that some items come on the gp first. Nothing too major but like the Series III, dual climate control, dual exhaust, mpg countdown and some more stuff. I just noticed some things from the 88 to present things on the grand prixs that the bonnies didn't have 1st. I am guessing you still think I like sunfire'* huh?

The only reason the 04 GP received the Series III is becuase of the total redesign. At least that is what I think

GM flagships

Saturn = LS Sedan
Chev = Impala
Pontiac = Bonneville
Buick - Park Ave
Oldsmobile = Aurora
Cadillac = Deville DTS

Usually a flagship car in any model lineup is not determined by a sports car or that ridiculous looking XLR

The DTS is the top of the heap for Caddy, a flagship car to me is usually determined by the definition of luxury, class and style. Works the same for import and European cars

VW = Passat (soon to be pushed out by the Phaeton)
BMW = 760Li
Merc = S500 or 600?? (not 100% sure on model name)
Audi = A8

Calling the Corvette and the Firebird or Camaro a flagship car is not correct, they are in their own class

If the corvette is chevy'* flagship, then the Fifrebid trans am ws-6 or the GTO would be pontiacs.
