This is from last year'* auto show:


This is from this year:


Looks like the front end had some work. But the rest of the car looks pretty much the same. Even the wheels remained the same.

just a little disappointed in the looks dept., especially the interior. also not a northstar fan, why change what already works(ie L67). dont think sales on the GXP will be what everyone thinks either. i mean ive driven northstar cars before, and i wasnt all that impressed, except for the fact that the caddy and rora interiors are 50x better than pontiacs "premium" leather. im sorry but i just dont see the public (outside of BonnevilleClub) jumping on it... just my thoughts guys, dont hate me too much


EDIT: I'm very excited for the arrival of the new Mustang and most importantly, C6. (if ya couldnt tell!!)

It got the v8 because the l67 is on "lesser cars" so they needed something that was bigger, and better. It'* got more power and torque, and it'* a v8. They can't have the grand prix and the more expensive bonneville have the same powertrain, it'* like a vette and camaro sharing the powertrain.
