Default G6 GTP vs GXP

I see they both have the same horsepower. Is it indeed the same engine? Is appearance the only real difference?

There isn't a new one that I see.
if your refering to the older one then (from a road and track article)
06' GTP 240-bhp 3.9-liter V-6 has a 39-bhp advantage over the GT'* 201Hp 3.5-liter V-6.

In '06 the GXP was only a concept car.

He'* talking about the new G6 GXP that will be for sale as an '08 model I believe. I just saw a commercial for it the other day, it was for several cars actually, but that was one of them.

I remember I went to look up the specs and was very underwhelmed, not that much greater than the GTP, and compared to the competition, not so hot.

08 GXP has the 252 hp as already mentioned. Its hard to compare an 08 GXP to a non-existant 08 GTP. Seems the GTP option was dropped with 06 being the final year at 240hp.
