There was a rumour that you could get an SLE with a V8 Northstar option in it.

Default GXP vs. SLE in '05

Here'* a 2005 GXP compared to a 2005 Bonnie SLE with GXP trim. I think a lot of people will bite on this good looking ride and respectable price.




The SLE still give the nod to the GXP, but that SLE still looks pretty darn good!

Notice the spoiler on the SLE does not wrap around the car like on the GXP.

Look at the difference in tailpipes


So, now who'* gonna buy an SLE?

Iye! pontiac is doing it again! now thier throwing trim levels on different body styles again. This is going to be most confusing in 05. We have the SE, the SLE (now with rumored V8 option and now the actual GXP body style) I'ts obviusly going to be confusing in Identifiying the SLE now more than ever. Only reason I spotted that difference is cause of the chrome wheels. Actually it works out well, (even tough I wish they just kept all three body styles apart completly) Idiots might think you have the real deal. Basically it'* the same as an SCSSE to and SSEi would be? if it comes with the V8 engine why bother labeling it an SLE anymore?

The SLE does look nice. However, it doesn't look THAT much different than the GXP. I wish there was somewhat of a big difference, like the current SE compared to the SLE and SSEi.

yea, the only difference you get body style wise between SLE and GXP is the chrome wheels, tail pipes, and the actual SLE or GXP badge to distinguish the two apart. If asked; I think the SLE was the only one that actually looks totally different from the other two, I realize the GXP and SE are for the most part different but the body style for the most part are identical (exception of ground effects, front and rear bumper, and grill)

The SLE is not going to get a V8. Where did you hear that rumour?
