Default The Future Of The Bonneville Is Confirmed

Here is what Consumer Guide had to say about the Bonneville:

"Model News
Contrary to earlier buzz, Bonneville will apparently be dropped after 2005. No replacement is planned, but Pontiac hopes to keep at least some Bonneville owners in the fold by offering a performance GXP version of the midsize Grand Prix as a new 2006 entry."

So that'* it guys, no more Bonnevilles. We are being downgraded into a Grand Prix GXP.
At least all we can hope now is for a great comeback.

And no, it'* not confirmed. Rumors abound, and each one is slightly different. Consider it confirmed after GM produces a media release.

If you ever compare a '00+ Bonnie to any GP ever, you will see the Bonnie is a MUCH nicer car. It is downgrading no doubt.
